All Quiet on the Baby Front

Good news all around - Finn's little brother or sister appears to be head down, and there is no sign of any dilation yet. Thank goodness, because this baby needs to wait until at least April 23rd to get moving. That's when my mom is coming to town and can stay with Finn while we're at the hospital. So far, so good. I have noticed a few Braxton Hicks contractions lately, but I guess they haven't been very effective yet. OK by me! I'm sure I will be singing a different tune soon enough, of course, and will be desperate for some sign, ANY sign that the baby plans of leaving my body once Mom arrives.

Now I just need to get that burst of nesting energy that will motivate me to clean my house from top to bottom. Hmm, those urges have been noticeably absent...


  1. I never got any nesting instincts and I was carrying two. I call BS on that particular symptom. Is s/he sunny side up or down? I double-checked that sunny side up is the tougher position.

  2. Thinking of you! And your bday is so soon!
