Still waiting

Another two guesses bite the dust, but we have date claims every day for the next 4 days. Thursday is a full moon, which I'm told gets babies moving. We will see! So far, the baby is being a tease. I had contractions off and on all day yesterday, but they never developed a pattern and overnight they went away again. This has convinced two other moms here that we're having a boy who just wants life on his own terms. I just think we're having a baby who takes after Markus; baby has taken one glance at the temperatures and says there's no way he/she is coming out while it's this darn cold.

I was a little hopeful that perhaps you had a new sweet little one yesterday when there was no update, but now I see we're still awaiting the arrival... Hopefully, you won't have to wait too much longer! I do have a link to the famous Scalini's restaurant eggplant parmigiana that's supposed to induce labor if you want it, you know they claim that 300 women have had their babies within 48 hours of eating it, might be worth a shot... :)

I thought we might actually have a sweet little one yesterday too, but nope. I'm thinking I must have a way to go yet for some reason. If the eggplant parmigiana tastes great, I'd love the recipe, just for the sake of something new and good to cook. I'm not going for any quick cures (though I have several suggestions from spicy food to raspberry leaf tea), since this baby is determined to thwart me. He/she must have a good reason. I really wanted Ellie to come early, and it would have been very messy if she had (Katrina!). She knew better. I'll just have to wait.

Not sure if the recipe is good or not...I've not actually tried it, but I'll send it to you and let you take a look.

It's funny all of the suggestions that you get to get labor started isn't it?! I think you have a great attitude towards waiting out the last few weeks of the pregnancy and are very wise to wait for the baby's timetable...after all, he or she will get here soon, no matter how impatient all of us are!

Sweet pea, let them guess all they want. You just come on out when you decide the time is right.

And then come to Mimi!!!
