Due Date

Well, it is officially my due date. I went to the doctor on Wednesday and she was not overly confident that Miss Caitlin would be coming any time soon. It looks like she is going to fit in with our family nicely...the Irishman and I rarely do anything on time!

At this point I have an appointment at the hospital for a Biophysical Profile on Monday afternoon and a doctor's appointment right afterwards to re-assess things. The doctor said she won't let me go past the middle of next week so at least we have a deadline. This baby has until Monday to make some progress or it is looking like a c-section.

The Irishman and I have had a bit of a laugh though...we have heard the stories of my own birth. My grandfather was out of the country on business and flew back for my birth...only for me to be two weeks late. I was born a week after a hurricane. I was a big baby. My poor mother was in labor forever.


This baby is looking pretty big. We are in "the cone" for tropical storm Ida. My in-laws fly in from Ireland on Thursday.

Just sayin'.

In all seriousness, I am feeling good and ready to meet the little darling. I've been using much appreciated gift cards to pick up/order online last minute items for the baby. I think we are feeling just about as ready as we can. I took a LONG nap yesterday.

I promised the Irishman Mr. Christmas MONTHS ago that if I hadn't gone into labor by today we would go see "The Christmas Carol" with him, so it looks like that is on our agenda for the day.

I have also gotten to the point where I cannot make a phone call without the person on the other line FREAKING out. I cannot say, "Hello" with out getting, "ARE YOU IN LABOR????" (Although the Irishman has been doing that since, ummm, September!)

So, for now we wait. (And sleep!) I am showing Morgan how to post to my blog from his cell phone today, so we should be able to update quickly...once this baby decides it is time!

Happy weekend!

I'm glad that you are feeling well and the two of you are feeling ready! Your little one; however, is not feeling ready. :) I'll be praying for the three of you over the next few days! Hope you enjoy the movie, it looks great.

Good luck! I hope you don't have to go through a C-Section and that Caitlin comes on her own, and soon!
