Size of Baby: Baby N is the size of a small pumpkin, although it feels like I’m carrying around The Great Pumpkin under my shirt.
Feeling: So. Bloody. Done. But – my doctor is away right now so I’m OKish with holding out until next week. I’ve been going for short “walks” on our treadmill to help things along just a little bit, but my legs hate me for it. Just goes to show how out of shape I have become. At least my ankles haven’t ballooned – yet. Fingers crossed!! I have a pedicure appointment today and I’m sooo looking forward to it!
Craving: Spicy food. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s rumoured to help induce labour, but there’s a jar of medium salsa in my fridge with my name alllllll over it!
Other: Like I had mentioned, my doctor is away this week. He’ll be in his office Friday and I’ll see him for my usual prenatal appointment, but then he’s away for the weekend filling in at a hospital just out of town. (Actually, in my hometown!) As much as I desperately would like for him to get the ball rolling, I also am quite set on him being the one delivering this baby and not whatever OB is on call at the hospital. (I’ve met a few of them and so far there’s only one I actually like.) I’m keeping all of the things crossed until next week – but of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean much; “Baby will come when baby is ready.” *sigh*

Good luck with keeping “all of the things” crossed this week, ha ha! Nathan took me out for spicy food a week before Topher’s due date and he was still 10 days late. Maybe you’ll be okay if you eat that salsa?
So far it has caused nothing but yuckier heartburn!
Have them do a really thorough foot massage at your pedicure. I went into labour with Oliver the day after having one. Could have been a coincidence but there are pressure points in the feet that are said to induce labour! Can’t hurt!
So excited for you!!
