Make meals to freeze before having a baby. Not me. Pies, cookies, and quick breads are piling up in our freezer.
This kid is still holding out on making an appearance. Maybe he’s waiting to celebrate his independence with the rest of the nation tomorrow?
On Tuesday the doctor’s told me…”Any day now. I’ll see you in the next day or two.”
I’m 2cm dilated, fully effaced (TMI, sorry), and really excited to see Smalls. Even though I’m 38 weeks, he’s measuring at 39. This kid is ready to go.
I’ve had mild contractions non-stop, every 15 mins for the past two days. I even left work early yesterday because they were getting intense and I was sure it was the start of things. Nothing.
Hippie/old wives tale/things I’ve done today to get things moving:
ate spicy mango + pineapple
walked 4 miles
bounced on my birthing ball
drank a metric ton (ok 3 big mugs) of raspberry leaf tea
