8.8.05

I'm 39 weeks pregnant now. I would prefer not to be pregnant at all. Did you know that only 5% of babies are born on their expected due dates, meaning 95% are either earlier or later? I'll bet you can guess which side of the due date I'm hoping for! She could be born any time now or she could make us wait. The absolute latest that my doctor will let me go without inducing is August 25th though.

At least I know I don't have to wait indefinitely! At some point, this baby *will* come out of my body. However, I'm really hoping to go into labor on my own. Labors induced with Pitocin are generally more painful and intense than those that start naturally. In the meantime, Doug and I are trying to relax and have as much couple-fun-time as we can. We went to a show on Friday night and a movie on Saturday night.

Is your dad's birthday the 25th or the 26th? If you have to wait that long it would really be cool to have her on his birthday.
