10 Days to Go!!!!

Have you ever seen the Friends episode where Rachel goes into labor? I watched it last night, and have never related to a television show character as much as I did to Rachel.

There is a point at the beginning where she is so tired of being pregnant she looks down out her belly and yells, "GET OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT!!!!!!" All I could say to that was AMEN!!!

I am ready for her to be here already. Apparently, my uterus is her happy place, and she is perfectly content to stay there.

My suspicions of this were confirmed this morning at my doctors appointment. I almost cried when the doctor checked me and said there is absolutely nothing going on down there. We were kind of hoping she would come this week, since she is due 4 days after Jared starts his new job...not the best timing in the world.

The only good news we got is she isn't huge like I was fearing...and that my belly is really smooth. That is right, the doctor must have seen the devastation on my face and thought complimenting my stretch mark-less belly would help...I guess I will take what I can get.

Here is my huge belly at 38 weeks 3 days:




Where is my baby???? Any suggestions on how to get her here would be great!!!

How exciting, I can't believe it is only 10 days. I tried everything to get Noah out as well and NOTHING WORKED!! At least she isn't big so if you have to be induced your not pushing out a 3 month old.

Good Luck.

Are you walking a lot? You could take castor oil! It worked for a friend of mine... but it will make you pee out of your butt, and you might not want that during labor. Good luck and sorry for the yucky comment. Haha.

Good luck with those last ten days, they are probably the worst of the whole pregnancy. Sorry for the depressing news. However, you look great! I'm so jealous.

You are killing me killing me killing me!!!!!! You two aren't normally so good at posting all the time so I keep freaking out when I see that you guys have posted. I just want to see some great pictures of your new baby!!!! I know you want this too but you really are toying with me. As for advice when you have contractions DO NOT STOP WALKING just keeping going or the contractions can stop. Enjoy this next ten days as much as you can. You two will never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever (do I need to keep going or do you get it yet) be alone again. And yes I mean EVER again. It's really one of those great love hate things. Good luck darlin we are rooting that everything comes out ok. Love your guts

Sorry just read Erin's comment, DO NOT TAKE CASTOR OIL EVER! Yes another ever so you know I am serious. It just gives you really bad gas as she explained so very well.

I definitely agree with the sex advice! And don't feel too bad, my sister-in-law was due yesterday and is still pregnant!
