The comfy chair has been purchased, scotch-guarded and set up.

The diapers and wipes and yummy smelling lotions are ready.

The bassinet is waiting.

The teeny, tiny clothes have been washed and folded.

The Castor Oil and Blue Cohosh have been taken.

My feet are sufficiently swollen.

Your eviction notice has been served.

Where the heck are you????

I thought you weren't due until way into November? Relax! (Easy for me to say.)

Gotta love anonymous chickens.

I think you would serve an eviction notice after two stints in the hospital being pumped full of every drug known to man trying to stop your labor only to have them tell you that NOW you can go anytime. A hellish-HG pregnancy and a 7 lb baby shoved in you at 35 1/2 weeks.

Glad she cooked long enough....NOW GET OUT!

Tori :) said...

YAY! You made it!!
Now... get out baby.

I love the teeny, tiny clothes!

My guess was for October 20. C'mon baby! Let's get going!

Aw, can't wait to hear the good news. And oh, your poor feet.


michelle said...

Oh, I remember feeling just that way, and I hadn't had such a tough time. Come out already!

Enjoy the castor frappe!

Anonymous chicken here.
Sorry- didn't mean to offend. One of mine had lung problems only being 2 weeks early so I have a tendency to forget about mom's misery and worry about the baby. Best wishes to you and to the baby.

Blackeyedsue said...

Thanks anonymous. She will be okay. My first was born at 34 1/2 weeks gestation and had perfect lungs. My second was born at 37 1/2 weeks and had started to have problems because she should have been here at least two weeks prior according to her condition at birth. We microwave them instead of bake them.

Thank you for thinking about our baby. She is good to go. Sorry to blast you. I was in a terrible mood.

Suzanne said...

Yay! You made it past October 17th! (That was the mark you were aiming to get past, right?)

I love that you used Scotch Guard on your chair. Now it will repel any spitup that comes flying its way! :D

Amber said...

If you're microwaving them then shouldn't there be a 'ding!' when she's ready to come? :D Come on baby!!!

Sending belly rubs!!

I know this isn't your first, so don't mind my doula experience (and my own four 9lb+ babies) talking here...but castor oil? Careful with that stuff, you don't want to be chained to the toilet AND big and pregnant. Have it be known, s p e r m naturally has oxytocin that will put you into labor (synthetic form is pitocin derived from pigs)

I hope it is soon and if you blast me, I know it's the hormones, cause you loves me. hehe.

Extra info...black and blue cohosh alone started mine and my sister's labor. No need for the castor oil (nasty stuff!)

Blackeyedsue said...

Oh Emma...do you know how much lovin' has been going on here in the past week? I keep telling dh that we used that to the this baby in me, now we need to use it to get her out.

It hasn't worked.

Castor oil got the pea here. Obviously lightening doesn't strike twice.

Blue and black cohosh are just plain nasty. Doable, but nasty!

On the menu tomorrow...membranes stripped and way more lovin'. Like ten times in a row. DH may be coming home for a nooner. I hope I don't kill him.

Oh, and I didn't put this on my front page because sometimes grandma reads my bloggy!!!

Loni said...

It's time to come out sweetie.

My prayers are with you!

I keep telling dh that we used that to the this baby in me, now we need to use it to get her out.

hahaha, oh, and girl those poor feet of yours. Tomorrow stripping membranes! Huzzah! Good for you, that should do it.

I hoped that s p e l l i n g out a word would keep the bots and google searches away. (apologizing to Grandma if I've offended)

I'm praying for tomorrow. Tomorrow is good right? Do I need to bring over a freezer casserole? I'm so game. ;)

PS Are you registered?

Gabriela said...

Love this post. Your poor feet!!!

Good luck!

LovingTheChaos said...

I loved my comfy chair! :) Good luck and best wishes on this new adventure....three of them! :)

kris said...

You crack me up! I am completely jealous of that comfy chair. I second the eviction notice...for both of us. I'm done already! Come on! Our prayers are with you. Luv ya.
