Ok. So....I am still pregnant. The due date is Saturday. No contractions since Monday's fun. The big issue of the week has been whether or not I have some sort of infection that caused an irritable uterus that caused the "false" labor. The answer is yes and we don't know. Seriously. It is still unknown about one possibility and definitely yes on the other. So we are treating the one that is known and still waiting on the other. Everyone is trying to be reassuring that the baby is fine and will be unaffected by all this.

If you are family and want more info call me (or Mom) otherwise I simply figure it is all more information than anyone not related me wants to read about.

Basically, we're just trying to be as normal (!) as we usually are and wait to see what happens next. Since Pumpkin was born 7 days post due date and Dumpling was 12 days late, I am not surprised that nothing is going on birthwise. I realllllly want this one not to hang out as long, but we will take what comes. I am ok with waiting as it will hopefully mean we can get everything cleared up first. Two more weeks--like Dumpling--might put me over the edge though. I am not that patient.

I really want to hold this baby. I also want to know if it's a boy or girl!!! So curious now.

I really am praying that we will know without a doubt when it is all happening for real and when to call everyone to come back. Especially since Dumpling's speedy arrival and birth with only Sweetheart and I present is NOT something I care to repeat!!! I mean really. That was crazy.

So that's my news. What are you up to these days?

Oh - hoping you are all better soon. And praying your midwife arrives before the baby this time!

I have been up to my ears in paint and house projects this summer. (perhaps I'll blog the why's and how's sometime soon.) And we started back up with the "official" school books this week. Love teaching my children ... all the time!

Did I ever comment to wish Dumpling a happy - happy - bday?? If not, please give your little darling a squeeze from me. Your boys are just so adorable!

Praying you are holding your newest addition very, very soon!

Hope all goes well very soon for you...waiting is definitely one of the most difficult parts...on everyone! Take still and know.

Four of Stephanie's babies were "late". The only one born on her due date was Faith, and that was the 4th of July! :)

I've been praying for you, will continue!

I want to know if it's a boy or girl too!
I forgot about Dumpling exciting arrival, nope not something I would want to do again either.
Praying Littlest will arrive soon, and without quite as much finesse as big brother...

Hope your little one doesn't keep you waiting too much longer!
