No, we haven't had the baby yet. No, I'm not in labor.

Those seem to be the two things everyone wants to know these days, so I thought I'd get that cleared up right away.

I'm now three days from my due date and aside from infrequent painful contractions (which mostly seem to happen at night so that I wake up again and again) we have no sign of our baby making his/her grand entrance yet. I was really hoping to have the baby this weekend, especially after learning that our doctor will be gone after Wednesday, but no matter how excited/frustrated/worried I get nothing is happening.

We've now got friends phoning us specifically to ask if we've had our baby yet. I told Liam I don't mind people calling once because it's nice to know we're being thought of, but I'm already impatient enough to get this show on the road without everyone I know telling me they're waiting too. Friends who don't hear from us for a few days assume we're at the hospital, my parents think I'm calling to tell them I'm in labor each time I call, and Liam keeps calling home to ask if I'm in labor yet.

Nicholas also starts his first full afternoon of kindergarten tomorrow, so now we've got school to throw in the mix. He actually told me he wants the baby to be born tonight so he can skip tomorrow and go Friday instead. Hhmm...coming up with excuses to skip class a little early are we kiddo?

I don't know how I feel about Nicholas playing the Juvenile Delinquent before his 5th birthday.

Ah well, it'll all be good.

Baby yet?

Ha, Ha! Your baby rant has been spammed!

And if Nick is already playing hookey, I don't want his kind around my kids!

Dylan said...

Wow. Nick should meet my friend, Daryl. They'd get along great.

Great, Kim. Now you've got perverts following the blog of a pregnant woman. If you started charging, you could save up for the kids' college fund.

Boy, this is almost as bad as Liam posting pictures of unconcious kids in people's homes!

This is why I try to keep Rob locked up as much as I can (without the police getting involved).

KimProbable said...

Death to the spammers. Don't piss off the pregnant woman.

domesticvixen said...

But the yahoo downstairs can?

Shaun said...

Well if you want to have this baby then get with the sex! hehe. I used to be in the same situation as you guys (LONG LONG story) and I was told by the Dr. having sex was the best way to get it on quicker. So get on it!

domesticvixen said...

Who would have thought so many people would be interested in your sex life? I'm surprised there haven't been any suggestions on positions...

KimProbable said...

Positions...are those the things we do to try to get around the mountain that is my belly?

Dylan said...

Liam's had sex?

Liam J. said...

It hurts less if you try not to think about it, Dylan.

domesticvixen said...

Apparently Dr. Ruth has quite the book... there's a position during pregnancy named after her.

In Rob We Trust said...

Why is Shaun getting excited about Liam & Kim having sex? This was just as bad as the time at Liam & Kim's wedding when Shaun wanted to know where I lived and if my wife sleeps with the window open when I was taking my wife home and coming back to help with the clean up.
