Nine months and counting ...

Not so patiently waiting.

Contracting on and off (almost) every night.

Getting anxious.  Been at 3 cm since Wednesday - a week ago now.  My doctor was so excited when she checked me, but nothing. is. happening.

Sick of my itchy achy body. 

Hoping the baby is okay. Being upside down for so long has to be uncomfortable.  Nandini was head down for weeks and was born with a massive cone head.  Hello round two of that.

Went back to yoga yesterday after two weeks off.  I think it is fair to increase physical activity now.  I swear I thought my hips were going to break after doing the frog pose though.  Ouch.  Relaxin hurts.

For the longest time I was so afraid of this baby coming early.  With everything that happened with my last pregnancy and Nandini's speedy delivery I just didn't know if I could trust my body. So grateful to have made it to full term.

Of course, now that I think about it, I'm not sure if my body is able to go into labor on it's own.  For both of my previous deliveries the doctor broke my water once I was already in the hospital and it wasn't until after that point that the contractions really started. 

I have so many people asking me if the baby is here yet and I have made so many promises to send text messages to my friends when I go into labor.  Love that people want to hear from me and not just see pictures of the baby or something.  I am so touched by friends who have promised to pray for me when I do go into labor.  And of course one of my parents (or both) have been staying with us for weeks just in case. 

Linked up with Stephanie's Blog your heart, her timing could not be more perfect. 


  1. That last week or so is terrible isn't it? With my last one I got to the point where I was crying every time someone asked if he was here yet or why he wasn't. I hope it's not too much longer for you!

  2. OOh I can imagine how ready you are to meet your baby. All the best for the birth and I look forward to hearing your news - hopefully sooner rather than later.

  3. All the best to you and your new baby :)
    So exciting :)

  4. Thinking of you! And man, that last week (or couple of weeks) is the worst.

  5. a lovely, little new life about to begin. the frustrating bit is always followed closely by the good bit. so watch out. blogging your heart gave someone more room to stretch and make their grand entrance - the could be doing the frog pose now. :)

  6. Sending warm thoughts for a safe and easy delivery for you and your new family member!
