Waiting Game Stats

  • 3 job applications out
  • 0 baby arrived
  • 4 days overdue
  • 2 friends of friends given birth on or since my due date
  • 2 feet of unusual size
  • 2 medical practitioners telling me to be very careful about what I eat because I wouldn't want the baby to get huge while I'm overdue
  • not anywhere near enough contractions
  • not 1, but 2 giant stacks of paper to grade not to mention the little stacks that students would really like to get back asap
  • 1 grumpy absent-minded pregnant lady who feels like a pink hippopotamus: you know, sorta cute, but in an ungainly dorky way

Hoooray it's an Earnest English!!!!!

I was just wondering how you were and if you'd had the little Eng! (didja see my clever truncation there?)

How are you doing? Are you holding up in the heat? At elast, it was hot here today (all week actually) ---- what about for you?

Keep resting, keep your feet up, and you will make it through all this soon! (and then we want to see some cue baby pictures.)

Hope Little Eng comes soon!

I *hated* being overdue. But your lack of complaint is admirable. I complained on the blog starting at least 2 weeks before his due date. By the time he was a week was ugly.

I should have mentioned this earlier, but if you want to send me your address via real email, I have some things to send you. Let me know what the weather is going to be like there for the next couple of months.

I'm glad to hear from you and sending "come out, baby!!" wishes your way.

Over here, little one, over here!

Don't worry about what you eat -- there is no way the food you put in your mouth today could have that direct an impact on the size of the fetus. Babies feel big when you're pushing them out no matter what size they are.

You are doing wonderfully!

I was wondering about the baby status. Get plenty of rest and enjoy whatever food you want! You deserve to have any and all pleasures possible.
