Ready and Waiting




We are just kind of waiting around for Amelia to decide it's time to meet us. My deadline to go into labor on my own is Wednesday, at this point. I have been getting acupuncture, taking vigorous, determined walks, and doing other unmentionable things to try to get things going. But there is only so much we can do. The funny thing is that it could literally be any moment, we just don't know!
Jeff's mom, Amy, has been here since Wed. night, and it has been wonderful to have her. She has been spoiling us with cooking and cleaning and we've been having some fun outings. So at least the waiting is enjoyable. Yesterday Lisa came over, so she Amy and I all watched a movie and ate snacks on our bed in the air conditioned room. Fun! My mom and dad arrive on Monday. Maybe internally that's what I'm really waiting for...
As far as statistics go, I am dilated one cm., 50% effaced, and Amelia's head is "engaged" in the pelvis. And I am starving all the time, but very energetic. So we shall wait and see. You will soon be looking at pictures of the little wonder!

I'm really excited to know when she's going to arrive!

I know exactly what that waiting is like, we were doing that with Ellie. I think the day she came I went fishing on the jetty in Seal Beach. Carol knew I needed a break from the anticipation and sent me out for a while.

The room looks really sweet! Ilove the posters.
