update

Well, no baby yet. I went to the doctor yesterday and not much has changed in the last week. So, the doctor said that we could induce now or wait a little longer. We don't really want to induce if we don't have to. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow (Thurs - which will be one week from the due date) to have an ultrasound and do some fetal monitoring to make sure the baby is still happy. If so, we can continue to wait for the baby to start labor, but if there are any concerns, then we'll induce, of course. As anxious as we are to have this baby, we would rather do it on the baby's schedule. There would be a lower chance of complications during labor and I'd be able to move around and take advantage of the jacuzzi tub during labor. If we induce, I'm pretty much stuck in bed. So, we're really hoping that the baby figures out what to do here pretty soon. My parents are here now, so we're all just staring at my belly and telling the kid to push down. I'm hoping that the baby taking it's time means that it is laid-back in nature. We'll see!

Did you guys ever listen to the Phillips File on Real Radio 104.1 in Orlando? Jim Phillips had a recipe for bringing on labor. The husband makes mac n cheese for the wife and she adds Tabasco sauce, as much or as little as she wants. Then she eats the mac n cheese. You don't have to finish it all. It's supposed to bring on labor in 24 hours or something silly like that.

When I told Calvin you were still waiting, the first thing he said was "time for the mac n cheese"!

Love and peace,
Jennifer

We will have to try that. It doesn't sound too appetizing, but I'll take any excuse to eat mac and cheese! And try anything to bring on labor. Thanks!
