One

One centimeter. That's all.

I need to hold off until Thursday night because I have to pick O up from camp that day. August 5th is a good day to have a baby, right?

Tomorrow I will mostly be bitching my head off because it's supposed to be 105 degrees here. ONE HUNDRED AND FIVE. That's obSCENE. I have the girls' inflatable pool all set up in the back yard. I will fill it in the morning with nice, cool water. I will slather up the Boo with sunscreen. I will slather up myself with sunscreen. I will fill the cooler with ice and we will be spending 99.9% of the day getting pruney. Tomorrow is going to suck sweaty donkey balls.

Hooray for 1cm!!! Here's hoping for Aug. 5th because then O will be home, it will be the weekend, and you won't have to be pregnant in this horrible heat anymore.

Hoping for you, J.

I hope your waterland day helps!

daysgoby said...

And WHAT am I thinking?

SQUEE! It's happening!

(I mean - slowly! I hope it happens slowly! Well, until the painful part...then I hope it goes like a greased ape down a slippery slope)
but I am so EXCITED for you!

and my wrd verif. has 'cj' in it!

Sure, Aug. 5 is nice, but Aug. 3 is BETTER...

But anytime soon is good! Woohoo!


I'll toast to you both on my birthday (the 3rd, of course).

Rachel said...

I've already predicted Wednesday for you. ;) (But I didn't know that was before O was back...)

I'm glad the heat has left us, but not glad it has reached you.

Cross your legs girl! You don't want to tell your baby that he? she? was born on one of the hottest days in MA history. Make yourself some frosty drinks to bring out to that kiddie pool and pretend they're adult beverages. Maybe that will make the time go by faster.

105. Yeah, and global warming isn't reality, Shrub. I don't know nothing about birthin no babies ms. Julia... is 1 good or bad?

Angela said...

You know my guess was for the 3rd. lol

it is suppose to hit around 104 here.

I am sending you tons of easy labor vibes!

lildb said...

may you be as comfortable as possible. and oh, dear, I hope things go smoothly and safely for you in the baby-deliving dept.

*big hug*

Caro said...

Oooh... that heat does not sound fun.

And yeah, August 5th sounds like a great date!

Thinking of you.

Andrea said...

Fingers crossed for August 5th. Good luck!

In the meantime, here's hoping for COOLER WEATHER. It's supposed to be 105° in St. Louis today. That's just wrong.

Jane said...

Or you could have the baby in that nice inflatable pool. Keep cool, it's horrible hot here too.

Allison said...

Hehe. Forget August 5th! How about August 6th? That's a *much* better day.

Okay, well, I am a tad bit biased (that will be my 21st). Wouldn't it be cool if we had an OCer and an OC Jr. with the same birthday. Not that I'm asking for you to go an extra day just for me...

seeing as how bitchy you are feeling i guess sex is out of the question to help bring on labor?
