Dear Baby

You are being such a tease!  On Monday, when I went and saw my Dr, she told me I had made incredible progress over the weekend.  I was 1-2 cm dilated, and 50% effaced.  She was certain you were on your way into this world.  On Thurs.  when I went for an ultrasound at the hospital, she said you were one very healthy, happy baby inside.  This was wonderful news - however, we only have until Monday before they are going to schedule me into the hospital to give me medication that will force you to come out.  Since Monday, I have had many days where I feel like you were trying to make your way to this world - only to have everything grind to a halt once I lay down for the night. 

You are definitely a Scorpio and your father's child.  You are definitely making it known that no matter what I do, you will come when you want to.  However, your stubbornness will only last for so long.  You have a time-line now.  Mommy and daddy really want for you to call the shots in the delivery - meaning we want you to come out on your own without the medication that could put mommy into a lot of pain.  (Along with a lot of other nasty side-effects).  Mommy wants this experience to be as natural as possible, as studies have shown that a natural deliver is better for mommy-baby bonding along with a lot of other things.  However, if we get the nurse (or one like her) that we had on Thursday when we went for our tests, it will be very difficult.  That woman was overbearing and opinionated! If she could have, she would have started mommy on the drugs that day!  We don't want that.  We NEED you to come out soon. 

Choosing your birthday must be important to you.  However, you need to know that the Dr's will choose it for you unless you start to co-operate.  We are running out of time!!

Please baby, start co-operating and make your way into this world!  Mommy and Daddy are so ready and excited to meet you!!




  1. Come on baby...let's go!!! Your post was super cute. I really hope your little one decides to make an entrance without medical intervention. Thinking about you!! :)

  2. Hi from PAIL, hope baby comes out soon! Did they sweep your membranes? That can really bring on labor if you are dilated a little already.

    1. She did on Monday. I had contractions on and off all afternoon on Monday but they subsided around midnight :(

  3. Thinking of you and can't wait to "meet" your baby!
