That’s what we’re doing around here…waiting. Waiting waiting waiting. I’m good at waiting. I made it through 2 morning services of singing, a walk around the back 40 with Jo and Aaron and Max and Lainy (thanks, you guys- it was wonderful), a minor spill during the creek crossing, and a final 6pm service of singing with no baby action whatsoever (yes on the contractions, though… they’re just not super regular yet). I got my pants all muddy during the afternoon walk and needed to change before singing again…but at this point in the pregnancy (+40 pounds- all between the belly button and the knees, mind you) I’m down to 2 pair of pants I can wear without being in a country song. The other pair was drying in the dryer because I did laundry this weekend (shocking). I had to resort to a pair that fit 3 months ago. Uh…shall we say enhancing? I tied a shirt around my waist. I do not care anymore, people. I do not care.
My next appointment is scheduled for Tuesday at 11:45am. I’m taking my father with me. You’re invited, too.
[appointment update: no nothing…NOTHING…no change from last week. I have a non-stress test this Friday and then another appointment Monday at noon…but my doctor thinks I’m going to go naturally before then. She says everything looks great and they’re not going to push anything this week. But by Monday, if it hasn’t happened on it own, then we’re picking a date. She guaranteed me I will have a child by Thanksgiving.]

Send me spicy food.
Y’all make my life wonderful.
