Patience is a Virtue

Practice makes perfect.

I am being perfected.

I have an appointment with the midwives this afternoon.  Unless something really interesting happens, I won’t do any more blog posts, but I will update this one.  So, if you are following baby updates via Facebook or a feed, you’ll have to come here to get them…I don’t think updates will appear on feeds.

Thanks, Lina, for that spinning babies website.  At the minimum, my arms and shoulders will get a workout today.

If the baby doesn’t come by tomorrow morning, I will have to reschedule our household goods delivery.  I’m not happy about that, but, oh well.  As my husband always says, no plan survives first contact with the enemy.  Not that the baby is an enemy…not really

Midwife appointment update: baby is doing great. No change in my cervix since Monday. Hospital induction Sunday night if we go that far. Ugh ugh ugh.

Saturday morning: still nothing.  I’m supposed to call the midwives today and go see them, see if I’ve gotten anywhere.  I’d call now (5:30 am), but guess I’d better wait for a decent hour (8 am?).  It will give me time to go for (another) walk and have some coffee.

  1. oh good, i'm glad you liked it! some of them are “blood rush to the head” looking positions, but to save myself or another mama back labor, it looks REALLLLllly appealing.

    also, the hands and knees, belly shake with the rebozo (just use a sheet) – i know IRL friends who've had success with that 🙂

  2. Hugs. Love. Prayers. Repeat. We are rooting for you.
    It could be worse, you could be Amy 😉

  3. Put it in His hands and know that what happens is for the best.

    Yeah, you know that. Just a reminder. 🙂

  4. Praying for a baby before Sunday!! I've been induced every time, REALLY praying you avoid that.

  5. Mimi, Amy did have her baby a few days ago. I'm at the top of the list. Next one has a due date of July 4th.

  6. Praying for an imminent delivery free of induction. I've still got 6 very long, hot, summery weeks myself!

  7. Seventh baby on the seventh day of the seventh month. That is my call….make it happen! XOXO

  8. The word induction just makes me so….highly irritated. I don't think 50 wild horses could drag me into ever doing that again. I sincerely wouldn't wish that on you. You and your baby deserve better! Patience is a virtue indeed.

  9. In solidarity, I am refusing to change my desktop calendar from JUNE till JULY until you have this baby. It will drive me crazy every time I look at it, and then I'll remember to offer another “hurry up baby” prayer for you.

  10. oh gosh prayers prayers prayers that we beat that induction. disappointed in the midwifery care that they would try to make you do that! 😦

  11. ugh me again 😦 sorry i keep doing that!

  12. I am having dreams of you giving birth today. Please have this baby so I can dream of my own stresses. Thank you. 😉 XOXO

  13. Go for a RUN! That will get things going (even if it's a 50 yard dash..)

  14. Stalking you and praying that today is the day!

  15. Do you think you flipped him? Her?

  16. George Thomas was born this morning and everything is great. Although, he did miss the day I called by about seven hours.

  17. Congratulations, my friend! Welcome, George!

  18. Congratulations, my friend! Welcome, George!
