I was hoping to post exciting news that I was already at a 3, and should be going to the hospital sometime this week! Well, look for that post another time, cause it ain't happenin'. I'm at a 1-2, and not a good 2 at that. I realize that these numbers mean nothing--I could jump to a 5 with several good contractions, but my midwife seems to think that this is going to be similar to Aubie's birth which was 1 hour and 4 minutes short of being a week late. : ( Oh dear. All I want to know is, how can I get any bigger and not explode? I have yet to see how it is possible. If you don't see a post in the next week or so, you'll know that it wasn't.

Hey Saige, I tried calling your cell last week and it didn't go through. I talked to Durenda about it and she said that you have a new number now. I'll have to get that sometime. I don't want to call you WHEN you do go into labor, so I will wait a while. Have you tried taking LONG walks yet? Right before I went into labor with Margo I went on a tour with my parents of the plant where my dad works and by 3:00 am I was in labor. The walk was hard and uncomfortable but it made my labor start. I hope it will be soon for you. I know you are so ready to NOT be pregnant. Come on baby!

Don't know if you've heard this one, but I think that eating chili encourages labor. At least, that is what I attribute to precipitating Corey's advent. I've heard that from several other post-birth Moms; not so much chili, but spicy foods.

Whatever the arrival date, we look forward to meeting Matthan!

Love, KK
