Baby Watch, Bastille Day

"Those who wait for that must wait until a shrimp learns to whistle."
--Nikita Khrushchev

Three of us--Mama, Mama's Mama, and I--went to the doctor this afternoon, and three of us walked out of the doctor's office. That's right, Mama and I are still a family of two. Three, if you count Barky.

So sure, all you smartasses, you can keep the questions coming. And, I suppose, suggestions for getting labor started, like eating greens, taking long walks, or taking up pogo sticking.

We may not respond right away, however. We're going to be busy over here teaching this shrimp to whistle.

    Hey just think when ZD and I are doing the waiting thing you will be holding 3B.

  2. Have you tried sex?


    (Sorry - couldn't keep a straight face. My first was 2 weeks overdue and only came when she was induced. Over a THREE DAY period [don't even ask]. We tried sex. Not only was it SO UNCOMFORTABLE I JUST ABOUT PUMMELED MYSELF INTO UNCONSCIOUSNESS but it darned-well DIDN'T WORK.)

  3. Due dates are usually wrong anyway...ah, forget it, it just sucks to be overdue.

    With both kids I felt like, why can I not just get this done? Do I really need to feel like an incompetent, sweaty cetacean for ANOTHER day?
