sunday

Yesterday we were basically outside all day. It was 70 and sunny, and the perfect distraction from having a very large baby still cook'n inside. In fact I skipped church, I cant sit for longer than like five minutes...and I really wasn't wanting to attempt to be polite to a zillion people: "you STILL haven't had that baby yet?!"
We went to a new (to us) park in the evening and threw rocks for a loooong time. Never loses its magic.
I loved watching our girls play, they really are so sweet and fun. And crazy.

Today is day six. I woke up so sore, and tired, and emotional...like choked up when Lily went to preschool...and I am kinda debating on picking her up early. Geesh.

I know this little babe is coming, and coming soon, and I am excited (excited is an understatement)  for her to finally be here.

I can't believe that you haven't had your baby yet when you were dilated to a three weeks ago. If you haven't had your baby by your next doctor appointment, have the doctor strip your membranes. Good luck!

By the way, even though you don't know me, I have to admit that I totally blogstalk you (in a read-your-blog-consistently way, not an obsess-over-your-blog way). I just appreciate your attitude, perspective and humor.

Glad you enjoyed your day. My babies have always been late and I've found that once I stopped thinking about it, stopped trying to induce my own labor, stopped wondering when....
that is when it happened. Once I found peace and gave it up.
Easier said than done, obviously, but sounds like that is what you did yesterday.

SO know how you feel. Sophie was two weeks overdue. Then I had extra amniotic fluid with Isabella and my uterus reached 40 cm at 34 weeks and topped off at 44 cm at 37 weeks. Some people were well-meaning, but I was staring daggers at the pharmacy tech who yelled across the grocery store, "You still haven't popped yet?!?" And I still had a month to go. Hang in there.

+6 now??? girl you are AWESOME. i can only imagine the mixed emotions of excitement and frustration...but getting out and tossing rocks into a pond with your sweet girls sounded like a great idea to get your mind off things yesterday :) Sending lots of positive labor thoughts your way Rach!!! xoxo

I remember being so frustrated the first time around. Pretty much every person I ran into (whether I knew them or not) would ask when I was due (this started at 36 weeks), and then make some hilarious (to them) crack about how huge I was, am I carrying twins, you look like you're ready to pop (haha... not like I haven't already heard that from like 50 other people today. Idiot). Whatever. It was so annoying and hard to play nice. Finally, 5 days after his due date, my son was born, we had that special birth moment and I immediately forgot how annoyed and uncomfortable I had been leading up to it.

That said, I hope you get to meet your little girl soon!

You're almost there! The day before I had Kingston was such a perfect and relaxing day...just like you had. I remember looking at my three boys playing in the sprinklers and thinking how much I loved each of them and how soon it wasn't going to be just the three of them soon there would be 4. That day was one of the most special, emotional, scary days I've ever had. So, I know how you are feeling. I cannot wait to see that big baby of yours...I AM SO baby hungry right now and your babies are ADORABLE. I Wish you lived closer so I could hold her. AHHH, I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!! I will say a special prayer for you tonight.

My last baby was 10 days late. Yeah, it is hard, but she will come out:) and sooner rather than later. Just when I thought my baby would stay inside forever I had a nice warm bath and talked to him (out loud)about how I was ready to birth him, but I couldn't do it alone. I may have cried a lot too. Labor started in the middle of the night that night and the next after noon he was in my arms. Sending peaceful baby thoughts your way.

Oh and I totally skipped church after my due date too:)
