And while the days without baby are numbered, don’t worry dear public, they are not literally numbered. I think with our last post a few of you worried that with our impatience we would do something drastic like induce S to get the little dude here early. But I can promise you that we will not induce until 42 weeks. It goes against everything we want for him and for S and a natural child birth, so don’t worry. When we say we are going to do things to get him here I mean things like go on long walks, eat spicy food, drink apple juice, bounce on the exercise ball, that sort of stuff. We arn’t going to do anything weird/dangerous either, no caster oil or other drugs/herbs to speed things along. So if Jude gets here any time soon I promise you that it not because we forced it, but because that is just what happened. And I’m pretty sure wishes and hopes never induced labor, so we will keep hoping he comes soon. I’m hoping for exactly 10 days. In 10 days we will be at 39 weeks exactly, which seems to be the magic number in terms of development, but we shall see. After all, unless doctors force them, babies tend to do whatever they want.
Hope your day is as blissful as mine.
PS- I always enjoy looking at our stats, especially how people found our site and search words they used. And I just noticed that this week 4 different people found our blog by searching for the phrase “cute stuffed zombie”. How strange and random is that?
