Yes, but no. By next week.

And there we have it.

Yes, I've "progressed."

No, I'm "not ready."

And, "you'll deliver by next week."

She is doing her cute 16 kittens in a gunny sack dance right now. I keep telling her it's roomier out here, but she isn't buying it.

Today, as a way of not wallowing in disappointment about not going into labor, I wore a flippy dress and kicky shoes. Briar's eyes bugged out of her head as she saw me descend the stairs like a princess...a princess with an "e-noe-muss belly." I felt absolutely glorious. Gorgeous. Radiant. Cross your fingers I can hold on to that until "next week."

Awh, you can do it, you have done much tougher things in your life. A week is nothing!
I bet you looked beautiful in your flippy dress and kicky shoes.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel at least! I'm glad that you feel glorious. That's a great feeling to have this late in a pregnancy. Hope that she emerges before next week though, maybe while you're still feeling glorious!

And glad you got to have a princess day... I am sure, even without the photo to prove it, that you looked fantastic!

I'm back from my break and I came to see if we've gotta baby. Not yet I see, my friend, but soon. And still you are playing on playgrounds and flitting and glowing and glorious. You're my hero Amanda. A mama rockstar. That's one lucky baby in there.
