Let’s put that at the top of the list of stuff NOT to say to a pregnant woman.
A couple of days may not be much to you, Miss Thang in your trim cut top and super tall sandal wedges and you Mr. I-haven’t-been-carrying-another-human-for-over-nine-months.
“Let’s give it a week and then we can begin to investigate our options.”
Really, “give it a week,” and “our options?”
Umm, yeah, don’t meant to sound sour, but I am approaching the point of eyeing the Dyson and thinking, “Just how well does that puppy really suck?”
So, the update for those of you dear souls checking in on the ETA for lil “f,” is that I am ready as far as measurements etc go, but have not “spontaneously gone into labor” and had that “labor achieve the delivery of a baby.”
Ahem, my regular doctor was out sick and, no, I was not overly impressed or even remotely charmed by Mr. Let’s-take-a-wait-and-see-approach.
So here I sit, feeling a little like I am perched atop a sharp flagpole with a litter of kittens jacked up on amphetamines swirling around in my belly. Betcha wish you were here.
It is a rainy day and she is feeling uninspired!
The Dyson image is priceless.
ooh, hang in there. It is miserable to watch your due date come and go.
Great post, though 😉
Oh yeah, I've been there, and am nearly there again. I hear ya!
Oh I have left the office in tears at the "wait a week and then explore our options" talk.
I am taking prenatal yoga right now and she is all about giving us tips to get the baby moving down and out. When I hit 37 weeks I am going to make this woman work her magic on me. She has pressure points, visual images, breathing and poses, squats and figure 8 looking pelvic thrusts that look promising.
Come on though, this is your third kid, they really shouldn't make wait any longer. ugh, right with you.
oh being late SUCKS.
pretty sure dyson would make you the star of its next commercial if in fact little ms f is delivered by their lovely sucking tool 🙂
the dyson thought was fantastic! feeling for you..with your litter of kittens in your belly. LOL.
You know I wish I was there. 'cuz I'd be laughing at you while I was holding your hand…
Hope your weather is better than ours, too.
No, not the thing to say to a pregnant mama…
Although I don't know Briar and Avery's birth stories, but if there is a way to go on your own without the use of pitocin or knives, it is better for you… They both suck ~ I haven't gone into labor spontaneously ever and pitocin contractions are no fun.
That Dyson is sounding better and better 😉
The Dyson never loses suction!
Don't you just wish all those never been pregnant people could be shipped away sometimes 🙂
I am sending you (and my sister in law) labour vibes!
Maybe all lil "f" needs is some enticement? Spread your legs in front of a tasty ice cream sundae or wave a Nintendo DS around down there. Shine a flashlight on the stuff, so it really pops and maybe follow up with a card that reads "Promotion ends Tuesday."
I'm with Maggie . . . the Dyson comment actually made me laugh out loud, the kind of hearty guffaw that is rare these days.
Hang in there . . .
Sorry, Amanda…sending hurry up labor thoughts your way to get your little angel to make her debut, like, tonight!
You missed your opportunity to tell him that he was just "a couple of inches stabbed".
Because a jury with seven women would have totally let you off.
It's sounding like this 3rd little girl is already showing her stubborn side. She's in there just thinking "I'll come when I'm good and ready!"
Were Avery and Briar late? Or early?
I've never been more than 39 weeks 1 day pregnant & I was beyong miserable. Here's hoping she's here sooner rather than later, and that stupid doctor isn't there for the delivery!
My, I can't even imagine.
Get lots of foot rubs.
Thanks for the laugh. Hang in there. I enjoyed stopping by your blog,
Oh, the anticipation. I am so excited for you to meet you sweet new little one and sorry your doc was unsympathetic about the waiting game. If I go late I plan to do yoga like a mad woman and eat frightening amounts of spicy food!
