Waiting, wishing.

We're still waiting on a number of things.

One: Granny's passing. She actually seems to be coping really well at hospice. The night I saw her before she was admitted to hospice, she was in the worst shape I've ever seen. She was miserable. I thought she wouldn't make it through the night, to be honest. But hospice has livened her right back up. It's a relief, actually. I still realize her passing will happen soon, but I am glad she is feeling like her old self during these final days.

Two: The arrival of Smush. Went to the doctor yesterday ... still 2 centimeters dilated. Which is a bummer, because that's where I was a week ago. No progress, despite being kept up all night with contractions. I'm 38 weeks and some odd days today. So basically, it's GO TIME, Smush.

Here is a picture. I decided to be gutsy and take one of my bare belly, just in case (I hope) it's the last one for this pregnancy. WARNING: It's really white. It might scare and/or cause blindness.

38 weeks.

And an extra fun one. I tried to be all artsy and take one from above and it kinda worked. I like it.

Please bless my next post will be a birth announcement ... one can only mop their floor so many times before going crazy.


  1. C'mon Smush! The last few days of pregnancy are so hard! Hopefully it'll be soon! Good luck! :)

  2. I think the last three weeks of pregnancy are actually the longest a woman will ever face.

    Come on out Smush! We can't wait to meet you!

    Cutest belly I have seen, love the pictures.

  3. My belly is just as white :) Here's hoping for soon!

  4. aawww so cute i love pregnancy. After about 4 weeks i started missing my big ol' self. I found it was alot easier than having to pack up the diaper bag snd stuff. I hope your next one has baby pictures.

    Seeing that your wanting a VBAC i would like to hear your story just cause that's what i'm looking forward to on my next.

    Good luck girl

  5. Remember the last couple weeks are designed to make you willing to do ANYTHING to get that kiddo out! Crossing my fingers he comes soon, (and safely VBAC!)


I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
