Over the Hill

The due date has come and gone and we are officially on the other side of 40 now. We are sure Nutella’s body continues to make more progress, however, things are slow and steady and have not yet crossed over into active labor. We highly anticipate that moment. Until then, the wait is at times excruciating because…well, aren’t they all when you’re waiting on something important?

We’ve been continuing to take walks and do some of the fun and not-so-fun ways of trying to induce labor, but basically it’s gonna happen when it happens. This weekend marks the 6 year anniversary of the day we met/our first date, so it would be nice if it coincided with Cupcake’s birth.

I had a serious chat with the little boy last night, letting him know just how much he is loved and wanted, how we ache to meet him and how many wonderful things there are to see and do out here. He responded by wiggling his butt back and forth, and moving various body parts (arms, legs) outwards (good boy, but the exit is DOWN). We know he is still doing well in there but hope he will be able to bask in the glorious heat wave that is coming to our area over the next few days.
