40 and counting...

SOOooo I thought the next time I'd be posting I would be sleep deprived, exhausted and on cloud 9 with our take home baby snoozing on my chest. Well he's decided to stay snug inside my belly a little longer.

Much to the dismay of my mom and MIL who rushed down here at the first sign of early labor last Friday (5/18) nothing has progressed past a few hours of cramping and a little bit of lower back pain as of this afternoon. We've had a great week of some real quality time together, but alas no baby yet.

Yes, I've tried just about everything under the sun except drinking Castor oil which my midwife advised against as it would just upset my bowels and dehydrate me... lol!

So here we sit. Me, Keiki, Mr. Bags and the cats. Unfortunately my MIL had to go home and will probably miss the birth of her first grandchild. I feel terrible about it, but I suppose ultimately as long as she's able to be a part of his life long term that's all that matters.

It's a beautiful evening here and I think I'll go out for yet ANOTHER walk to try and get this kid moving! Hopefully the NEXT time I post I'll have a pic of the Keiki to share....

In some other WONDERFUL, exciting news my very good friend over at From IF to When has had an amazing turn of events in she and her husband's journey to becoming parents. On the adoption track after IF and treatments they had a bit of a bumpy road and in the matter of 24 hours they are now parents!!! We couldn't be any happier for them and it's quite apparent that this was meant to be. Take a look and be prepared to shed a joyful tear or two...

  1. Aw, Cherm....thank you so much for the shout out! It HAS been a serious whirlwind adventure that we are so happy to be on.

    Now, Keiki....what the heck is taking so long, kid? Your parents want to hold you outside of that snugglie belly...isn't it getting cramped in there anyway? Come on out and see the world!
