Still no baby

And I really didn't expect one, except that for a second time this week he has kept me up for hours and hours with contractions. He had me so convinced that I started my "labor project" which is baking chocolate chip cookies. The rule is, start the cookies and when they start burning that means it's time to head to the hospital. From 2:30 in the afternoon contractions came regularly, anywhere from 15 minutes to 5 minutes apart, but not consistently 5 minutes apart. So at 8:30 when they got the teensiest bit stronger and about 8 minutes apart, I started baking. I finished baking. I finished watching a movie. I had showered and dried my hair. We cleaned and finished packing. Everything is by the door. I got tired. Fell asleep around 1. Woke up at 9 this morning and not a single contraction for the rest of the day. Faker! Faker faker faker! So now I have rebought chocolate chips and added a package of brownies for good measure which I fully expect to bake while this little guy fakes me out a few more times and my husband and I will gain 20 pounds each from fake labor.

LOL You know when I got pg the 2nd time I started from the very beginning telling people that the baby had to make up for his brother. My 1st was 10 days late so I said that the 2nd baby owed me 10 days to make up for his brother being late. Amazingly enough I did have him 10 days early. So - I think this 2nd baby is just making up for the mistakes of his older brother. LOL

I know you're just anxious. I would be too! I'm sure you've reached the point where you're tired of being pregnant and just ready to get the show on the road. :) Hang in there.

With DD2, after my first pre-enclampsia child, she did this every nite for almost 3 weeks then she had to be induced. She still likes it cozy,
