Waiting by Carey Printer Friendly

The floors are sparkling, the curtains are hung, the new paint has long since dried and the decorating is complete.

No further trips to the store are necessary, all needed equipment and supplies have been purchased weeks ago.

Overnight bags are packed, outfits and toiletries carefully picked out and on standby till summoned for duty.

Weekly MD check-ups continue with anticipation of progress made only to be squashed by the reality of zero change.

The waiting game continues and the skin continues to stretch to maximum capacity while housing a content little one who is reluctant to vacate the premises.

See, this is why you have to show him who's boss right from the start: "Time to get on out of there, I got shit to do!" The ninth month sets the pattern for the rest of your life, so if you don't want to kowtow to the little bugger for the next year, now's the time to take charge.

Uuum, yeah. Pregnancy/Parenting tips from Ray, pretty hilarious. Good luck, Carey, that last month seems to last forever. I think it's all part of God's plan -- at one point your fear of childbirth is finally overcome by your readiness to just HAVE THE BABY! Keep us updated...

Still no news :( My due date is Tues the 24th, and if it does not happen on it's own I may get induced on Fri the 27th. Feel like a tick about to pop.
