I'm still utterly and completley pregnant.
My mom has been staying busy since she flew in on Friday night. She's mopped my floors, cleaned my kitchen, played with Tralee, took me shopping, organized our shoes, babysat while Jim and I went out for a date night on Saturday (and she and my dad supplied the date night moola -- AWESOME!), cooked, and more. It's great having her here to help. I only wish I could have this baby soon so she could help me out AFTER he arrives.
We've tried walking, hiking, driving over bumpy roads, and a few other things to help this baby boy along. Today we're going to cut up a pineapple (I read that can help induce labor. . . worth a shot), drink some raspberry leaf tea, and walk some more. I go in tomorrow for my final appointment before D-Day.
When Jim and I were out on Saturday night we saw one of the doctors that works at the practice I go to. He was out with his family, and so Jim and I stopped to say "hi." When we lived in Caldwell this doctor was in our stake, and is a really nice guy. He asked which doctor I was seeing on Tuesday and he told me to tell him, "INDUCE ME!!!!!!!" So, that's the plan. Unfortunately the doctor I'm going to see is notorious for NOT inducing. Although, he was my doctor with Tralee and he induced me over a week early with her. I'm hoping he works with me. I'm willing to break out the big guns and cry if necessary. It won't be fake crying either if he says he won't induce.
In other news, Tralee has been breaking out in hives. They come and go on different parts of her body. They don't seem to bother her, but I wish they would go away. I don't like seeing a rash on my daughter. It worries me. My mom stayed home with Tralee yesterday due to this rash while Jim and I went to church. It was odd going without Tralee. Jim and I actually got to listen to the testimonies instead of entertain a two-year-old. Weird.
We went on the waterfall hike after dinner yesterday. It was good to get out of the house, and we were hoping the hike would put me in labor. No dice. Humph. The good news is I took some cute pictures of our hiking adventures with Grammy Char-Char.
One more thing, Grammy Char-Char leaves this Sunday, so if you could send some labor-inducing thoughts my direction we would all really appreciate it. We're ready to meet our son/grandson/brother.
Hope all is well in your world.
