Still Waiting

I was hoping the next post would be the classic hospital pictures announcing the arrival of our new little gal (still figuring the name out if anyone has suggestions), but nope instead its just of my enormous belly that continues to stretch and me venting about it.. I'm not sure what it is about going over due that makes me insane this time around. I mean really I've gone 40 weeks what's another couple days right? You'd think, but another couple days is sounding unbearable lately. I went over 6 days with Emmy and don't remember feeling like this. I guess I had high hopes for my doctors appointment today thinking I would basically go straight to the hospital or have him say I'm sure by tonight you'll be in labor, instead all I got was well nothing is happening so I guess we'll see you next week. Maybe my hormones are out of control right now, but I actually started crying on the way home. I don't know if it's just the thoughts of going to church another Sunday with everyone saying oh your still here, if I just don't want to pee every couple of minutes, if I could put a stop to the shooting leg pains, or if I just want to sleep on my stomach again, but seriuosly I don't know how much longer I can take it. Of course I am just dieing to finally hold this little babe in my arms instead of in my belly and to see if she'll be another identical baby like Emmy and Maile were.

I planned to have Aaron take that cute prego picture but forgot, so maybe tomorrow I'll post it, but for now this is the update.

two words: castor oil.

I had Elliot 9 days early because of it.

GOOD Luck! (I'm already sharpening my steak knives in case the castor oil doesn't do the trick fast enough this time around...)

Hang in there Jess! And, really.. things could always change over night. I can't wait to see the latest preggo pics and am esp. anxious to meet baby girl number three. :)

I feel your pain...I cried on the way home from one of my last appointments as well. We're thinking of you and sending happy thoughts for when she does decide to make her arrival!
