Little girl - it is called due date for a reason

She's late. Today was my 40 week appointment. The doctor that I saw today was so complacent. She didn't even want to do an internal. I wasn't having it and spoke to the manager there. All the other doctors I have seen at the short time I have been at this practice have been wonderful - except this boob!

She eventually did an internal and I was nowhere. I had nothin. On my due date - no effacement, no dilation. I am devastated. I have an appointment scheduled for 41 weeks but hoping I will not need it!

I have lost all patience..

Not that I have many to begin with... I am half Italian. I know she is not due for another week, but I have already tried doing all of those "Labor Inducing" tricks. We walk like crazy with the boys, eat eggplant, zucchini, even labor cookies. I have had spicy Mexican food and spicy salsa. Nothing.

We are just so ready for our outside baby girl. My belly is ginourmous, I can no longer sleep, I have LOST my appetite and I cant really take it much longer. If this baby is late, she is in so much trouble!

Another Wonderful Shower

Yesterday was my NY shower. It was another surprise shower. Another interesting story of course! I was at my parents house in NJ taking care of my sister after her surgery. On my was home I hit an inordinate amount of traffic - redic! Then, just as I was going to turn on to my street, a deer ran out of the woods and hit a car. (yes, it ran into the car, not the other way around.

It was clearly dead from the impact. It was so sad and traumatizing. I started shaking as I pulled onto my road and then the tears started. As I walked into the house, my knees pretty much buckled as everyone yelled "Surprise!".

Never a dull moment!

The party was so nice. My mother in-law is a crazy cook and had made so many delicious dishes. Just about everyone from DH's family was there, including his cousins from LI - havn't seen them since the wedding. We got so many wonderful gifts that our one year old niece kindly helped me open. It was a great day!
