Not Much to Report... baby yet! Had my weekly appointment today and my doctor said that she isn't always right, but she predicts that I will not go past my due date as I am almost at 3 cm (yay!). Blood pressure is good (mostly because the summer reading craziness at the library has started without me, I think) and now it's just a waiting game.

I had a lovely shower on Monday night that they threw for us (it was a couples shower) at church. Mike and I were so humbled by people's love and generosity. We are looking forward to bringing Evan to worship with us! And there is a family shower planned for me this coming Saturday. (Hmmm, why does it feel like I just did the shower thing? Oh, yes, because a little over a year ago I was having wedding showers!) So, my feeling is, I can just enjoy the final shower and then go into labor and give Mike a son for Father's Day. Wouldn't that be nice?

I don't have any shower photos to post, but I am feeling huger than huge at this point and would probably not want to share if I did. So thanks for reading, and if you have any tips for inducing labor (besides the eggplant, gingerbread cookies, and castor oil ideas), let me know!


  1. Popcorn -- really? I will try it today! :o)

  2. Hmmm...maybe your firstborn son has made an appearance by now! I am praying he will be an easy birth and good at church(I did not make it through an entire service until Trenton was 8 months old)!
    Also? Long walks broke my water for 2 out of the 3 boys! Well a few hours later but I am positive the walking did it! Do you have a park or zoo nearby maybe?

  3. Nope, no sign of him! I did have a burst of energy yesterday and today but it's leaving me now and I'm starting to worry he'll never show up. :o) I will try a long walk tonight once it's cooler. Thanks!!!
