I'm still pregnant! This is the "official due date" and, as expected, nothing's happening! LOL. I've got a few signs that things are progressing in the right direction, but since none of them can come with a timeline better than, "anytime, or up to two weeks", what's it really matter?
It's all good. Pumpkin was born a week after his due date and it is pretty typical in our family to keep those babies in there for some extra time. Besides, it's not a perfect science is it? Part of the fun is the anticipation.
The good news is that the pain I was feeling last weekend seemed to finally heal completely yesterday. I am thankful for that as it would have made labor so much harder. I've got a few things to work on today while Pumpkin naps that will wrap up little details like a map to the hospital in case it's needed, trying to get my prayer list of emails and phone numbers together, and finalizing the list for Pumpkin's packing to go to Grandma's house during the birth. (Poor Grandma! She's busily baby-proofing her beautiful home which means a lot of moving of treasures and things a little boy would find particularly interesting!)
Sweetheart has been working on restoring my computer and will hopefully have that up and running for me tonight. Woo hoo! Note to Readers: DON'T click on that little "View Next Blog" link on the top of Blogger pages. Sweetheart thinks that maybe how I ended up in the mess I did with some really nasty viruses that automatically downloaded onto my computer. Yuck.
I'm also trying to clean up the porch, deadhead my roses and fill up our bedroom with the nice roses, fix my kitchen curtain, pack up some gifts to ship, clean up the loft, work on my journal and scrapbooks and whatever else I put on my to do list. It's a pretty abitious undertaking for a naptime. We'll see...Since I was able to sleep in this morning, I'm going to try to not lay down myself.
Well, I'd better stop typing and get going! I did want to thank everyone for the sweet messages you've left as well as the prayers. Please, keep on praying! Have a lovely day!
Also, I've been writing out verses on index cards to have with me in labor. If you have any verses you'd like to share, please leave them in the Comments so I may add them to my collection.
