Day six and counting.

I guess this baby is going to take after Mike's side of the family. (Everyone knows they have a reputation for being late for things!) Looks like this one will be my latest yet. Jamie was six days overdue, but by this time of the day on my sixth day over I was in serious labor already. Not so today. Nope. Nothing. I'm pretty sure I did a post in here a while ago about my freak-out when my doctor told me that my baby is big. (That was a few weeks after he told me it was small.) At the time, my heart sank because that meant to me that this baby would be just like the other two: big, and overdue. So, I theorized that if Cody was 5 days late and Jamie was 6 days late, this baby would be 7 days late and therefore arrive on July 21st. That would be tomorrow. Everyone doubted me at the time, but now I find myself doubting that this baby will even make it here by then. I also figured that if each baby gets progressively bigger than the last, and Cody was 9 lbs, 2 oz, and Jamie was 9 lbs, 9.6 oz, then this one should weigh in at about 10 lbs even. Great. That should be fun. Oh, and my other prediction, as I have said all along, is that this one is a boy. I have gone back and forth and doubted that at times, but now that it is this late and following the exact same pattern as the last two, I have little doubt left. So, looks like I am in for even more testosterone in this household. Here's hoping I can survive that too!

I think we're going to go out this afternoon, just to get out of the house. Mike is stir-crazy. I think it's kind of funny. He is like Mr. Mom these days, and by the end of the day he just wants to get out of the house and do something. Jamie is napping right now, and Cody is eating lunch. When Jamie gets up, we will probably head into town. I'm not sure whether it is a good plan for me or not. On the one hand, it would be good to have a distraction, but on the other hand, I'm not exactly nimble and quick these days. Not sure that I feel like trekking around the grocery store, or anywhere else for that matter. It is also hot out. Well, okay, for those of you who love the heat and are disappointed so far with our less than balmy July, you may not find it hot today. I, on the other hand, was very disappointed when I looked at the forecast this morning and saw that they changed it from rainy to sunny and that there is no longer a day in the near future that is supposed to be lower than 24 degrees. Thank goodness our air conditioning is holding out these days.

Anyway, I think that's it for now. There is nothing in my life to update other than pregnancy issues, so being that I have NO news, there is not much else to say. I am on the very brink of giving up on ever getting this baby out. I would like to go shopping for something therapeutic today, but I can't think of anything that we could actually afford. I wish that I had an in ground pool. I would love to just float all day. I guess I can dream about floating and hope that one day I will actually be able to afford a pool. Okay, enough of this. I'm signing off for now.
