I may still be pregnant but at least the weather is beautiful here and I've got grandpa and grandma Reintjes to entertain the children while I wallow in self pity. I have to admit that this was much more fun before my midwife informed me this week that my wallowing should occur standing up because "gravity is my friend now".....awesome.
Both Davids are getting a lot of extra bonding time in--it's a good thing they like each other because the way things are going it's going to be another couple of weeks before this baby makes his appearance and grandma and grandpa are sooooo not leaving until that happens.....
My midwife also wanted to go ahead and schedule me for an induction but I convinced her to let me wait until I'm actually past my due date to start planning pitocin drips and IVs that pump you so full of liquid ice that you need a constant supply of at least three heated blankets to stop the shivering--not to mention the inevitable epidural. I've done contractions with pitocin and without and I'll give the pitocin a big no thank you very much. I've got until Monday to produce a baby on my own so hopefully things will just work out without needing any extra interventions--any extra prayers would be much appreciated!
