I am not used to the change in light- it happens so fast these days! Dark at 5pm, dark still at 7:45-- just light enough to see trees against sky. My whole self wants to tuck in, sleep deeply and late, or get up and turn on ALL of the lights to signal to myself it is time to wake.

This morning we have an OB appointment: NST, BPP, then cervix check (gah).

I'll update later with where we are and where we're going.

Hoping that now that you're done with working, your baby will decide to come out and play. (Once I crossed the last thing off my to-do list, my daughter came the next day). Looking forward to hearing what the OB has to say and sending love.

Good luck with this morning's check -- we are all breathlessly waiting along with you!

Thinking of you and Doug and your little one every day, dear Kate...sending you hugs and love and wonderful welcome-to-the-world energy.

One thing a lot of new moms don't realize is how common it is to go overdue. The average delivery date for first babies is +8!! (I had researched this carefully as I waited... waited... waited for my first baby who finally arrived +10.) It is unquestionably a difficult time but rest assured that this is normal!! And you're about to have the experience of a lifetime as you birth this little baby.

Good luck with all the checkups this a.m. Not easy either, but will hopefully bring reassurance that all is well on the inside.
