sitting at home on a snowy day, trying to find ways to get this baby o-u-t. my parents, sister and 3-year-old nephew get to philly today…sometime tonight. it just started to get wintry in philadelphia (and i guess across the country, as well,) and they’re driving (!) from iowa. now that’s love.
my options for inducing labor so far are:
1) take the 20-minute walk to the grocery store to pick up flowers for the jug sitting on our kitchen table.
2) massage my own belly.
3) jumping jacks.
the hardest thing for me at this point in my pregnancy is waiting around for the unknown. not knowing where i’ll be when i go into labor or WHEN it will be is killing me, but apparently, there’s nothing i can do about it except, you guessed it, wait. so wait is what i’ll do. i just really hope baby bean decides to make his way into the world in the next 72 hours so my family gets as much time with him as possible.
