Of These 100 Days: Day 1

For days 9-0 (and then +1 on, if we get there) I'm doing a separate post each day. Enjoy!

Day 1 - March 2, 2011

Well, monkey moose, here we are, one hour and 28 minutes from your due date and you're making no signs of arriving anytime soon! So we're definitely making it to your due date. Beyond that, who knows but Jesus? We have an appointment with our rock star OB at 11:40 so we'll see what she says. Last week the word was induction on the 10th if you're not here yet. But we'll get an internal check tomorrow (my first one this entire pregnancy--ick that I have to but yay that it's the first one after, you know, 280 days!) and go from there.

I'm so tired I can hardly think straight, let alone type, but I'll just say that I'm ready. As in ready ready. I'm not doing anything nutso, though I did eat pineapple tonight and I'm going to try to walk more tomorrow. Everyone is like, "Walk, walk!" I can hardly stand up straight! How do people do all this walking this late? I literally feel like a bowling ball is sitting right on top of my bladder and pelvis and it's EXCRUCIATING. But I'm going to do the best I can to walk around more. And there are things your daddy and I can do that help labor come... sorry, bud, but it's how you got here in the first place so you just have to live with that :)

Ok, my boy. Sleepy time. You know I'm tired when I don't watch American Idol and go straight to bed! I actually was in bed by 9:30 got back up after an hour because I got hungry, and lately when I get hungry I get massive shakes and break out in a fierce sweat if I don't eat right away so I wasn't taking any chances.

I love you, Roger. I'm so ready to meet you. Come when you're ready, but know mama is fine if that's in the next 10 seconds or 8 days. The closer to 10 seconds the better, though ;)

  1. How do you do all the walking? Desperation! It will propel you forward. I went ten days overdue with my son (in July, in NC). Every night, I would go to Home Depot or Lowe's and walk every aisle of the store three times. It did nothing!
    My husband refused the sex!! hahahaha He said "We tried that last time and it didn't work, and it's just gross now!" I couldn't even be made, he was so right!
