Still not in labor, and almost 10 days over...

Okay, I know I have not written in here all day, but it was a busy one. I am NOT in labor, or close to it, as far as I can tell. I did see the doctor today, and he did confirm that my baby is over 9 pounds already. I pretty much knew that, but it still didn't feel any better to hear it. I borrowed an exercise ball from my sister, and I have been bouncing on it this evening. That is supposed to help in a number of ways, including bringing the baby down. So, I guess we'll see. It actually takes very little effort and feels pretty good, so I will get back on the ball as soon as I am done this. I think I'll play some Wii and see if I am coordinated enough to bounce on the ball at the same time. I would like to go into labor by early tomorrow morning, but in all honesty I don't really think that is going to happen. We will see.

The good news is, even though I am a bit upset about being this overdue, particularly with my third baby, I am not in the depths of despair like I was yesterday. I am still tired of being pregnant, and I am still somewhat impatient, but I feel much more at peace with things, and that is helping me quite a bit.

So, I know this is a tad bit undetailed and even vague, but I don't feel like sharing all the details of my appointment today. Let's just say that my doctor was somewhat surprised that I hadn't had the baby yet and that he hopes I have it before my next appointment, which is on Tuesday. I will be 14 days overdue by then. So, I will do as much time on the ball tonight as I can, and then get a good sleep. Beyond that, only God knows at this point. I think that's all for now. I may be back in here tomorrow, unless I am in the hospital! Here's hoping...I think.
