This kind of "late" is worse than a late period.

So we are now looking at 40 weeks and 5 days of pregnancy. I actually googled "longest" pregnancy yesterday and one woman was pregnant for 375 days. I'm only at 285 days. My pregnancy apps have officially stopped notifying me about things that are going on in my womb and what to expect. Tomorrow I have an appointment with my Doctor to talk about induction. I'm not even sure how I feel about this.

I have officially been asked nicely not to return to work or I would have been working today. But between trying to figure out if my husband should drive me in so that I could take an ambulance home if need be, just didn't seem okay with my boss or my husband. Needless to say that I'm not overjoyed about taking unpaid time off with out a damn baby here! But......I do see their points.

Sunday I had to go to the hospital for a non-stress test. They check the baby's heart rate and my uterus to see if I am having any contractions. When you've never had a baby before and they consistently ask you "Are you having any contractions?" you answer truthfully...."I think it's just gas". I honestly have no idea.

My mother texted me yesterday morning to let me know that she was going to go buy hair dye to look good for "what's her face". We haven't decided 100% on a baby name yet. It really all comes down to if she is born a ginger or not. Also, I told my mom that she may have roots by the time she decides to make her appearance. She asked if that was a joke, I told her I wasn't sure.

In lieu of some voodoo karma vibe shit, I told my sister that the baby hasn't come yet because she hasn't put together the pig rocker and delivered it. She dropped it off on Sunday all put together and ........... that didn't make her come either.
Cutest thing Ever!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pig Rocker
We received some of the best news yesterday. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that my husband has been out of work for almost 2 years with a back injury. After 22 months of jumping through all of the workmans compensation hoops, he has finally been approved for back surgery. Naturally, this is the worst timing ever, but I am completely ok with it. This man hasn't slept longer than 3 hours at time in forever! We can't even go out to eat for longer than an hour because his back kills him from sitting. Especially now with the little one on her way, he will hopefully be able to do everything with her!

I made a decision to give our labor and delivery nurses and doctors cupcakes after we have Baby Casey. We have this really great place near us that makes the yummiest cupcakes. Flavors like cookie dough, reese's peanut butter cup, buffalo chicken (this one has a chicken wing on top of the blue cheese frosting) and boston cream, how could I say no? We had these for my baby shower and my mom had some left over cupcake boxes so I used those and decided to personalize them with stamps and pink bakers twine.

Enjoy your Tuesday, I'm off to go and bounce on a birthing ball, have good sex, take long walks and eat pineapple. And all of those activities are code words for "sit on hammock".
