Not into overtime - yet

Got a shock yesterday, finding out TODAY is actually the due date for the unborn. I had been working on the premise that I still had a day - or two - up my sleeve.

Not that it makes a huge difference - it is not here, but it is a day closer.

Having got my head around the fact that there WILL BE a baby here, I am okay with that set of facts.

In fact, I think it would be cool if it decided to start around 11.45 this morning - that would kybosh any further P&C official activities for the year yet allow me to rush through all those Christmas gifts that I have not yet bought (which is approximately the total amount of Christmas gifts I have to get this year less 2).

However, if baby comes through on that order, I am scared for my future. I would not know what to do with such a compliant child!!

If not, I have until next Tuesday to talk sternly - otherwise the doctors are threatening to do the talking for me, and I really don't want that.

So anyway, you will be kept updated.

Good luck Jeanie, I hope the baby comes at a good time for you. I knew your due date was close, but I didn't realise it was so close! Thinking of you xx

Might I suggest heading out tomorrow with your mom as soon as you get 'Salina off to school. Long walks have been known to shake things up. Of course, if you are anything like me, aches + shopping + crowds = tears, which can be off-putting.

Thanks for the updates though.

Thunderstorms, bumpy rides, full moons, castor oil (Do NOT try that one! It is seriously not worth it). I've tried them all.

Raspberry leaf tea (easy to get) helps. Also, as Debby said, walking. I walked literally up until five minutes before Joseph was born. The midwife was so impressed! :)

Hang in there girl. :)

Corrugated roads and castor oil did the trick with my 2nd (some OBGYNs still use the castor oil, blech)but I don't recommend it.
Just put your feet up and enjoy what little peace you have left cos you're going to be flat out like a lizard drinking soon enough ;)
