Allright young lady…

…that’s it, we’re coming in after you.

Today we had a visit with the OBGYN(LMNOP) and she sized your mother’s belly up like it was a potential blue ribbon winning pumpkin at the county fair. She then stepped back, scratched her chin and said, “I’d say about 7 pounds” and then promptly spit her tobbacy into the spittoon in the corner.

Well, ok, maybe there wasn’t spitting involved, but she did say that tomorrow looks like a great day for the inducing. So tomorrow morning at 7:30, we call the hospital to see what time to go in and get the ball rolling. We’re hoping for a quick labor, but given Zoë’s hesitancy to show up, it may take longer than we think.

But we’re really hoping it doesn’t. You hear that Miss Zoë?

Ok Zoë, come on out with your hands up!

That’s it kiddo, you have 48 hours to come out peacefully or we’re resorting to chemical warfare!

Juked!

Last night, towards the end of dinner, Maryanne got a look on her face as if something “was happening”.  We thought that this might be the precursor to Zoë finally gracing us with her presence.  Well, turns out the little one just decided to fake us out.  Were were most definitly juked by our sweet daughter.

Deadline

Well, Zoë’s official due date, June 7, has come and gone, and she is still firmly ensconced in her more than 9 month home from which she will soon be evicted. Hopefully this reluctance to emerge signifies a tendency to want to finish things completely rather than any thing else it could signify. I’d think it means she just likes to sleep, like her momma, but her momma was born 6 weeks early, and there’s plenty of sleep to be done out here! So it’s time! Ring the bells and the alarm clocks, it’s time to wake up!

One of the strangest things about pregnancy is not knowing when things will happen, but we do know one thing- now she’s got a deadline. I am not in fact an elephant, and she can’t stay cooped up forever. The doctor will induce if she’s not born by June 16, and since the induction is scheduled for the evening, her birthday will be June 16 or 17. So, will she make an appearance before then? I sure hope so! Toward that end, please send all wake up call thoughts firmly in her direction. And please make them loud. Loud, loud thoughts.

Zoe Watch 2006

If any of you hold any sway over this little one, please do your best to convince her to be born in the next couple days. I’m getting more than a little impatient. Although if she’s holding out for 6/6/06 then that’s quite all right. But any longer than that… I’m just saying. I have a doctor’s appointment on the 6th, so she could either show up before it, and cause me to miss it, or wait until just after it so I basically go in for no reason. Either way, she can be a pill AND be born. Sounds good to me. Or before that would be just fine too.

I know you all want to meet her, can’t you convince her to make her appearance?

The waiting game…

Well, its 4 days from the official due date of June 7th and we’re playing the waiting game. Zoë’s mommy is doing just fine. She’s a little worn out from all the stuff going on in her belly, but that’s really to be expected. I’ve managed to convince myself that the moment I am away from my cell phone for more than 10 minutes, Zoë is going to pick that exact moment to arrive.

I wonder if I could trick her…
