But the good news is...she WILL come out, at some point. I have started to dialate and efface, so I think my body (and hopefully Miss C) knows it is time to get things going here soon. They won't let you go over 41.5 weeks here, so looking at the calendar that makes the date August 26th be the latest she will make her appearance, if they do end up having to induce me in the end. That's just a mere 13 days from now (perhaps the longest 13 days of my entire life, but only 13 days- I can do that!) I'm hoping she comes on her own before that of course. Her actual due date is August 15th, so maybe she's just a punctual baby (that would be a trait inherited from her Daddy, not her Mom). Maybe she's waiting for it to be the 14th or 15th since things happen to us in 4's or 5's it seems (Brett and I met- got engaged 4 months later, got married 5 months after being engaged, got pregnant 5 months after being married, have lived in Yokota 5 months, my birthday is the 6th & Brett's is the 1st- 6-1=5...ok that's a stretch, but you get the idea...maybe she wants her birthday to have a 5 in it). Eh, who knows? She'll come when she's ready I guess. Until then, I'm gonna keep going on walks, eating spicy food, having "fun" with the hubby... all those things they say help get things moving and grooving! You, my dear readers, just keep your fingers and toes crossed and start saying a few prayers that she gets the memo to head on out!
