No, I'm not a pirate.

Just a frustrated mommy. I was supposed to see the doctor this morning and schedule a date to be induced, but unfortunately she had a family emergency (I do hope everything's okay), and now I have to wait until tomorrow for my appointment. The annoying thing about this is that the doctor may have let me be induced tomorrow, but now I can't even make an appointment until tomorrow so I'll have to wait until Monday for sure since they don't do it on the weekends.


Oh well, I just have to keep reminding myself that this is all in God's timing. Maybe I'll go into labor on my own this weekend anyways. As long as it's not as fast as Millie's labor... although we have read up on home births, it's not something I'm really "into." I'm all okay with the whole "natural" thing, but I would really prefer a nice clean hospital room with a competent doctor and helpful nurses and some DRUGS. I've yet to experience the full benefits of an epidural and I would REALLY appreciate that this time.

Hopefully the next time you hear from me will be from the maternity ward with a beautiful baby boy nestled up to me!

ya know, Katie....people have babies at home all the time on TV...It always works out great for them...I just don't understand why you wouldn't want to give it a try....I'm sure the little guy would come out clean and everything if he knew you were at home
....Just sayin' ;)

Maybe they would induce tomorrow afternoon??
I didn't have any drug relief the first time, but the 2nd time had at least a couple hours... so there is definately hope for you. I hope things go well!! Good luck!!! Can't wait to hear about your little guy! :)

Bummer!! Hopefully you can have your appt first thing. Oh, that last little bit of waiting is no fun. If you can't get induced until Monday, you guys will have to go on a date this weekend for sure! I would babysit. Seriously!

But hopefully you'll just have him anyways. I can't wait to see him!

The run in the rain didn't trigger anything? There's a lot of my life I can't seem to remember...but the last few days of pregnancy are seared into my mind forever! (who says carrying around your out-of-joint hip isn't fun?)
Hope you can stay comfortable! We can't wait to meet this little guy!
