Forty Two and Four

This is the third time I've tried to write an update post for y'all. The other attempts came off as crazy....which is exactly where I am at.

Our baby is extremely well and firmly ensconsced in my extremely healthy uterus. It is not being bullied out before it's ready and quite frankly I truly respect it's ability to ignore the any and all peer pressure to leave the party.

Scorpio indeed.

Jason and I are exhausted and I'm a little too close to the crazy line for my own comfort but that's a result of being confined to a hospital for three days (more on that when it's not so fresh)

I have some tea and some cashmere that need attending to. Will let you know when/if le Pork Bun arrives.

Thank the Gods for tea and cashmere! The only thing missing is some Walkers shortbreads (but that may just be me)...so very buttery and yummy.

So what ya knitting with it?

Thinking of you Jen and wishing the path was a little easier on you. We love you and wish that we were there to give you and the pork bun a big tight squeeze.

Thanks for the update

It's like Steph said, those qualities like independence, determination, strong will and definitely knowing their own mind that make children want to drive their parents to drink? They're Great qualities in an adult. You're obviously growing yourself one hell of a fine adult in there my dear. I just wish it wasn't so tiring for you.

Big hugs. Hope the tea and cashemere are helping.

WOW! I love you honey. Good luck.

Jillian said...

Sorry to hear that you've had to make a trip to H-town. And hopefully the cashmere takes some of the edge off.

To be fair, I would expect no less determination and stubborness from a child of yours, Jen.

Dr. Steph said...

Oh baby, I'm so sorry it's taking so long. You are making a very centred and strong babe.

Hugs and all the best.

Hugs and kisses to all three of you. We are thinking of you and hope the pork bun decides that his mama deserves a break, even if he/she is only setting the scorpio example to a tee. We love you :)

This baby is going to take exactly as long as it needs to be perfect.

(It's too bad about your sanity though...but really, all kids take you off the rails sooner or later anyway.)

stephanie said...

Good grief. That last one was me. I have no idea how my name came out to be tvyzfjoh.

Sandi Purl said...

wouldn't all of this stubborness make the Bun a Taurus? does that mean you'll have to wait till late april/early may? hmmmmm...am i making you crazier!? loving u & sending you awesome vibes xooxoxoxoooo

Samantha said...

Wow ... you are a trooper! Good for you! Your baby is not even born yet and you are already a top-notch-Mama! :)

fibersnob said...

One of these days this baby will be fully baked, some ovens are just so comfy that buns don't ever want to be done.

Sophia said...

Oh my darling--thinking of you and sending lots of love. That crazy little bun. As others have said, it's definitely your baby. :)

xoxoxo

p.s. my word verification starts with 'oof' and ends with 'beg'

Our wee girl is a scorpio too and let me tell you , it's a fun ride! Our kid's birthdays are going to be so very close!! It's amazing the way 40 weeks is really just a ball park figure eh? As long as baby is healthy and you are too, your uterus is the place to be I guess. :)

We're thinking of you.
