Yep, you read that title right! I am still with child. And, she has until midnight tomorrow night to exit her cozy home, or I lose privileges to the Birth Center that I signed up (and paid for). They cannot legally allow her to be delivered past 42 weeks gestation.
It has been a rough two weeks. There have been a lot of curve balls thrown at us, which I believe has caused me to be tense and not relaxed enough to allow the natural labor process to unfold. I am discouraged by the circumstances, which are mostly related to our housing. Our landlord put the house up for sale at the absolute worst time possible, while we still have six months left on our lease. And, we are getting calls to set up appointments for interested parties to walk all through my perfected nested home. I don't think so.
I also decided to keep on working up until I went into labor to conserve as much leave time as possible. I just had no idea that I was going to go to almost 42 weeks! Today is my last day before maternity leave. I am going to spend tomorrow eating, sleeping, laughing, drinking castor oil and hot raspberry leaf tea, doing jumping jacks and lunges....
So that is the most recent update. My next one WILL be the birth of my child!
