In this case, no news isn't necessarily good news. I haven't been quiet because I'm having a baby. I've been quiet because in the absence of a baby, there isn't anything else going on worth mentioning! I am just totally consumed with waiting. I'm now 17 days over due...but you know what? My mom went 20 days over with me. What goes around, comes around, I guess. I have taken to bring a newborn diaper, a blanket, my herbal remedies, and a couple of waterproof pads with me whenever we go anywhere farther than about 15 minutes away. The amount of contractions I've been having could amount to a quick labor, so I want to be ready to birth in the car if need be, if we're away from home. And Don doesn't even go up to do pig chores without taking his phone with so I can call him if my water breaks or something. But, for now, we just wait. And wait.
