Skooter Watch (or Lack Thereof)

Hey everyone! Just a quick update to let you all know that I'm still here, still preggers...due date is Monday and I have a very strong feeling we're going to blow past 1/3/11! It's so funny because I was so worried about going into labor right before my girlfriend's wedding the weekend before xmas. And then I was so worried about going into labor on xmas. Not that either of these would be terrible scenarios, and don't get me wrong I'm dying to meet Skooter. But in a perfect world I just wanted to hold out until closer til my due date.

Well careful what you wish for, because dr. appt on Tuesday showed absolutely no progress. Next appt is this Tuesday after my due date, where they'll give me an u/s to check on the amount of amniotic fluid...something they do for anyone past their due date. I haven't had any contractions, or even braxton hicks for that matter. I have this feeling I'll be one of those girls who just never goes into labor naturally...hopefully I'm wrong but that's my hunch. The dr. said after the u/s they'll determine how long they'll let me go...usually a week or week and a half!?!?

And to top it all off I caught the flu on Monday night, actually hubs and I both did. It was literally the worst night of my life, throwing up with a huge belly is NOT fun. Again I was so worried we were going to go into labor, of course the night that both of us were at our worst (obviously didn't need to worry too much, hah). I keep telling people that if a night of puking doesn't get Skooter wanting to come out, nothing will! So tomorrow I start operation naturally induce labor! I'm not going to go too overboard, but there will be lots of spicy food, walking/dancing around, pressure point rubbing, red raspberry leaf tea, and hubby's personal favorite....lots of sex! Any other tips people?!?

Little Skooter just know...mommy loves having you in her belly, and I know I'll miss it so much when you're not there anymore. But mommy and daddy are just dying to meet you, we love you so much and I hate to rush you...but the time has come little baby! Mommy is determined, hah!

And just for fun here are a couple pics from the wedding, it was so beautiful and so so much fun...but at the same time I'm hoping I don't have to be the 9 month pregnant b-maid again any time soon! Hope everyone has a very happy New Year, and hopefully I'll be posting soon with a Skooter update! Fingers crossed!!!

I am so glad to see an update. I have been wondering if maybe the little one had made a grand appearance, but it sounds like wee one is in no hurry.

Definitly keep us posted!

I was wondering if Skooter had arrived...hopefully soon!! You look great, and that dress is probably the best preggo bridesmaids dress you could ask for!

Tell Skooter to hurry up, we're all dying to meet him/her!

You look absolutley Gorgeous! Here's to wishing that little Scooter makes his/her debut very soon, as I know you are ready to hold this sweet baby in your arms.

Can I just tell you how happy I am for you! Sharing in this journey has been such a blessing and I look forward to more Scooter adventures in the near future :)

OMG! You look AMAZING! I could've never even pulled off cute at a wedding at this point... much less amazing. ;) And... no progress here either. I'm still 13 days away from my due date, but already feel overdue. I've been doing lots of spicy... and I need to get on the other natural inducers. ;) My dr offered to do the c-section on Monday. You'd think I'd just do it, right? But I want to hold out until my due date, unless I go into labor on my own. Haha.

For real-- You are like the most gorgeous, glamorous, hot 9 month pregnant woman ever!

I was wondering if Skooter was here! Here's hoping you don't go too far past your due date-- I was induced a week past mine!

Rach said...

Beautiful pictures! Good luck, looks like the baby will be here so soon!!

Samantha said...

I've been thinking lots about you lately!

I'm not sure if it helped but I sat on a large exercise/yoga ball and rolled back and forth and lightly bounced. If nothing else, it really helped my back pain.

Good luck!
