Officially overdue.

Well, I'm officially overdue yet again. I will never have an early baby. I suppose that is technically a good thing. Every time I get pregnant I secretly tell myself, this one will be early, and it will be small. And every time I'm wrong. That's right, not only is this one late now, but apparently it's really big too. Shocker, right? Okay, that shouldn't surprise me. I guess I'm good at making really big babies. But my doctor kind of made a big deal out of it yesterday, as though he was worried I wouldn't be able to deliver it. Sheesh. Let's add some more worries to my mind. It makes me think this one is going to break ten pounds. I'm sure it's not ten pounds yet, but that's the thing, I could be another two weeks before it comes, and it isn't going to stop growing during that time.

I'm not going to give all the gory details or the stats from my appointment, but I will say that my body is more favourable for birth right now than it was with Micah when I was induced, which was already 12 1/2 days past his due date. So that has to be a good sign. On the other hand, I had a ton of contractions yesterday evening and some through the night, but no labour yet.

On the plus side, I had a brilliant idea yesterday. I think I'm going to pack a sponge in my hospital bag. That's right. I'm sure it could help me through labour. I figure if I labour in the tub, it would be a great tool to have with me, and if not, maybe I can just bite it really hard during my contractions. Haha. Wouldn't that make an impression on the hospital staff? Maybe it would finally satisfy my urge.

I'm going to have to think of something to do today to get my mind off of everything. Not sure what that will be. This is kind of pathetic, but I bought myself a Tomb Raider game about a week ago for just that purpose. It has been fun, but I can't play it in front of the boys. It has too many scary parts in it. So not sure what we will do today, but it is dump day, so maybe we'll start there. Haha. I have house-moving updates to give, but I don't think I'm going to do that today. I'm off for now.
