I Drew the Line at Castor Oil

Yesterday’s doctor’s appointment confirmed that the kid is just completely happy hanging out right where he is. Sadly, he can’t stay there forever.

“There has to be an end point,” my doctor told us, as I finagled for more time in various hypothetical situations.

I told Dan the other night that I would be so happy to go into labor that I would welcome the onset of each contraction with unconditional joy. We’ll see if that’s the case when I go to the hospital tonight, where I agreed to have my water broken.

This is basically the last resort for someone with a prior uterine surgery who needs to get induced. Regardless of whether or not it works, the baby should be born tomorrow, June 11th. I’ll let you know.

Hang in there. Maybe he just wants you to be at the hospital before he arrives... I will keep my fingers crossed that having your water broken will start labor!

Good luck!

June 11. 6/11/08.

That's a good birthdate/birthday.

I knitted him one slipper. But it ended up being a slipper for a 3 or 4 year old kid, so I never made the other one.

Wow. I only just read this! I wonder what is going on? So much want to call and find out! I won't. But I know if you are anything like me (and you are), this will work! June 11 is a wonderful birthday! Love, love, love.
