We put on our walking shoes...


All week, Cliff and I have been taking a brisk walk at lunch over to Abbott Northwestern hospital, trying to get some exercise and hopefully help this baby get ready for birth. I've read about natural induction and some things you can do that may safely help to encourage your body into labor. Some foods are suspected to help things along as well as accupressure, exercise, etc. So, baby doesn't seem to be quite ready yet, but I'd rather encourage the labor naturally if possible than be induced with drugs next week. There is no reason to worry since our due date is actually Friday and we could still safely go several more days, but it's just something we're mindful of. We may have encouraging news Friday morning after our 40 week doctor appointment. Wish us luck and a healthy baby!

Luck, luck, luck. I was born on my due date and I think Chris and Patty were too. I have my mom's calendar with all the X's on it leading up to Baby day. It's really cute. I'm soooo excited. I'm sure you're tired of hearing everyone say that and I'm sure your tired of everyone asking if you had him/her yet but we're as anxious as you.
