stubborn genes

My uterus must be in fantastic shape.... it likes to keep my babies until the VERY end... and then stretch it out a little( the time not the uterus).
Needless to say this little chick still hasn't hatched. So far today I have had 28 phone calls, 13 text messages, 9 people at the restaurant, and all 46 of our neighbors ask if/when am I going to have the baby?
I have tried it ALL... all the methods for naturally inducing labor, over and over and over.
Tomorrow, I will turn off my phone, and only go out in disguise if necessary. I need to be happy not annoyed with others.
Predictions have been made, but I am certain that this boy's stubborn genes will dictate when. Until then I will focus and be patient. I AM STRONG and if 9#'s is again what I must endure naturally, I will, just for you sweet boy! See you soon.

Not yet....

No baby today....
I have attempted to blog about a million times since my last post almost 1 month ago.... however, I do have time to peruse everyone's blogs daily I have neglected my own for really no reason other than the "list"
1. Lucy wants to play with the computer when I am on it.... not a good combination!
2. I have still not finished everything on my nesting list and probably wont... and I am okay with that
3. Everyone else takes my blogging ideas... hahaaaaa I only wish I were as creative as Nie Nie or Natalie or Kelly McCaleb or the list could go on and on.

4. I still haven't recieved my baby shower photos from Mary, Katie, Amandalynn or Jenny and feel that it would go undeserving to blog before I pay dues to them for throwing me a "nienie" inspired themed baby shower before making anymore posts.... (that's your warning girls!)

Well, there is alot more I could add to my list but I am going to go for a walk... it is sunny and I love the sunshine. Mostly, I love AZ sunshine, but this will do for a fix right now. I was fooled a bit last night with my 6+ hours of contractions and just knew it was the real thing.... woke up this morning and feel a bit better with no contractions, so maybe tonight or tomorrow! Tomorrow would be a good day... it is #31 for my love!
