This is the second time I've tried to post this, so sorry if it shows up twice.

Just wanted to check on you and see if you've had the baby yet. Please let us know how you're doing. :)

That keeps happening to me too! My posts don't show up for a long time, so I re-post just in case. Anyway, thank you for checking up on me!

The baby has *not* come yet. I'm 2 days past the due date now, and starting to get a bit impatient. I'm feeling pretty good, but I definetely have all of the unavoidable discomfort from being so huge and having the baby super low, and it being summer!

My mom, who lives nearby, keeps being shocked at the clothes I'm wearing, but I'm just so *hot* that I'm going to wear a fitted little tank-top with my loose flowy skirt, or short-shorts with my looser t-shirt, if that's what it takes to be comfortable! :)

Any tips for bringing on labor? The doctor stripped my membranes on Wed and I went for a 2.5 mile walk, and ate a spicy lunch, then Thurs I went for a 3.8 mile walk and ate a spicy lunch. I think the little guy is just too comfy inside! (Supposedly my cervix is ready to go - I'm 60-70% effaced and dialated 2 cm as of the Wed morning appointment, and baby is "right there" at 0 station.)

In the meantime I'm distracting myself with a little bit of work, an entertaining but no-thought-required book, hanging out with my in-laws who are staying with us, and hopefully getting my nails done today. :)

And FINALLY, I just have to share this one: Last night, DH, in-laws and I went to a restaurant. As she was seating us, the hostess asked "when are you due?" I said "Yesterday" and she said "Whoa! So your water could break all over our booth!" I swear I felt like sticking my toungue out at her! It was pretty funny. She went on to say something about how gigantic my tummy is, so I forgave her. :)

SEX!!!!!!!!!!!! I was 2-3 cm dilated and my OB had stripped my membranes and DH and I had sex and I went into labor about 4 hours later!! We read online that you need to have an "O". Not sure why, but it worked. I remember waking DH up and telling him "the sex worked!"
