Hello due date...goodbye due date...


Well, as you may have guessed, today was my due date and...no baby. My friend Amy (a midwife) told me that only 2% of women deliver on their due date so I actually felt more than any other day this week, today wasn't going to be the big day. I was a little happy to hear however from my doctor that I am 2-3 centimeters dialated. That's better than nothin'. So we'll see... it could be 10 hours from now or 10 days. I'm just trying to think positive and be patient. One good thing about being late is that Francis is now sick as a dog.

Yesterday she woke up from her nap with a 102.4º fever and by the time Matt got home it was 103.7º. After apple sauce, a lemon popcicle and a sponge bath, her temp got down to 102.2º and we put her down for the night. Well... at least until she woke up throwing up at 3am. The joys of parenting! After a long night of cuddles and storytime we finally got a few hours of sleep. Today was much of the same, up and down temp and so far she's been sleeping for 2 hours so we'll see if we make all night tonight.

So, maybe it's for the best that I don't have a newborn headed home to a sick toddler. :) I can't believe I'm having another baby...geez... what in the world? Am I ready for this?
