Hello dear friends. I’m still here! No ‘real’ contractions yet, no Boomba it the outside world yet. This is bananas! I’m being patient (or at least trying to be). This week Jason and I have been taking lots of walks–we went to the beach, to Griffith Park, I had ice teas (and ice cream!) in about 14 different cafes, answered about 45 phone calls and texts with questions about if I was in labor, predictions about when I will go into labor and advice about how to help the process along. Meanwhile, Jason and I just tried to keep our eyes on the prize and continue to prep for when she does decide to arrive–using this extra time to make sure we have ALL our ducks a row.
I will admit, this is not easy.
The good news is, my instagram feed has benefited greatly from these daily adventures–as I snap pics to keep my mind off of this a.n.t.i.c.i.p.a.t.i.o.n.
If she’s not here by Monday our OB will induce, so even though induction is not ideal to me, there is some comfort in knowing that by Tuesday or Wednesday, we will get to meet our little bean, kiss her little face and tickle her little toes. So, this is our last weekend before *really* becoming parents. We’re excited.
