Baby Watch, 2007 continues *updated.

*update. It's freaking snowing. Like MAJORLY snowing. The baby HAS To come now!

It's 7pm, and my grumpy little Cherry has just hit the sack. She has been so grumpy the past couple of days. We totally can't figure out what's going on with her, and it's upsetting. Maybe she knows that her "only child" status is on the brink of change, and that's upsetting her, who knows?

Anyway, nothing is really progressing yet. The contractions are coming on a little stronger and a little faster, but it's still pretty minor labour. I'm pretty sure there's no turning back at this point. The baby is on her way, it's just a question of how long I'm going to have to put up with this crap. I'm not really in pain, which is nice, but it's uncomfortable. I actually had a little more energy today than usual. Well, maybe not "energy", but more of an uplifted mood anyway. Having something actually "happen" is lifting my spirits. Or maybe it's just the endorphins!

I got about 2 hours of sleep last night due to cranky child, combined with the start of labour, but I WAS able to get in a nice, long nap today, which made up for it.

Oh, and Armondo hit his thumb with a hammer this afternoon, and he's being such a whiney baby about it. It looks like it hurts a LOT, and I believe that it does, but in his own words: "I'm sorry, but I'm feeling really sucky about this! I know it's bad timing, but it's really taking a lot out of me!" And he is now resting in the bedroom with the TV on. Poor guy, hee hee. (is it bad to sort of be glad he's uncomfortable too?)

Oh yeah, it's DELURKING week right now. So, leave a comment! I'm sort of busy and not answering them all right now (you know, this whole having a baby thing sort of takes up some time) but leave a comment anyway! I'll love you for it!

Oh hurry up already will ya!! Everytime I come by I expect to see a photo of you and the newest addition to your family....and tell Armondo that as sweet as he is, and we all know he's a darlin....hitting his thumb with a hammer is nothing compared to what you'll be doing soon soon!!

so I was going to come over for dinner... but then I figured with the whole labour thing I might be SOL.

go have a baby, and I hope I can see you before I leave town...

Glad you are feeling cheerier! Is Cherry pleased with your plans for her when you go off to the hospital? K. was scheduled, so my mom flew down from Maine to watch him, and he was excited about getting to do special things with his Granny. Of course, Cherry is much younger than he was, so I guess it is a totally different thing with her, maybe a little confusing?
Make sure Armondo has gotten over his thumb (which I'm sure is painful) before your labor gets much harder. I still haven't quite forgiven Ed for whining for pain meds (I think he thought he was being funny, but it wasn't) while I was in the hospital having K. It is all about You (and the new baby, of course!).
I forgot -- you have a midwife. Are you having the baby at home, or are you going to a place? At any rate, I hope the weather behaves.

Hold on! It's less than 48 hours until the 12th. If you try and have her before then I guess I'll just have to hop on a ferry, come over there and stick a cork in. :)

Yay! She's my girl! :) (BTW a long walk and a little between-the-sheets triggered #2 for me, but it was Sept and I was way fitter (and less fatter) than I was with #1 (who was almost 3 weeks overdue and I had to be induced!!!!! -- sorry, not trying to depress you).

Happy pushing.

(Whoops -- that last comment was supposed to be for the newest post.)

Andrea:
What? Sex makes the baby come faster? Geez, well, if you're up for that, CeCe... GO! Now! For 11:52pm on the 11th or whatever!
