No baby yet!
We had what we wanted to be our last midwife appointment today (alas, we made one for next Friday as well). They had offered to strip S.'s membranes at 40 weeks (we're just 2 days shy of 40) but we decided we'll only do that if we have to come back next week. It seemed like meddling to us, especially when she's not even overdue yet. But she has been sticking to a regime of evening primrose oil for some good prostaglandins (hopefully!). Who knows---we have people predicting we won't have the baby until the 18th on the full moon. But we don't want to wait a whole week! I know we have nothing to complain about yet. Two days left until the due date, and really, we know in our heads that first babies are anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks late. It's just in our hearts we wanted to meet him/her this weekend. But that could still happen! So we're just waiting in this yucky heat in the meantime, thinking of ways to pass the time, amuse ourselves, and stay cool. We're going to try eating some spicy Indian food tonight or tomorrow to see if we can't get this party started!
