We finally had to get out of the house this weekend and lucidly people were having tons of holiday weekend bbq's so we went to Sean's co-workers parents house on Saturday night and and old high school friend of Sean's had a bbq on Sunday. I'm still having contractions but they are occurring only once or twice an hour. Sean has been saying the baby would be born on 7/9/08 for a while yet, and I'm thinking it won't be until at least Thursday 7/10/08 so the red alert is off for now. Nothing is happening anytime soon.
Oh and thanks for the advice guys, but I'm getting the impression that if the baby isn't ready, nothing will speed it up because nothing is working. I haven't tried drinking Castor oil yet, but honestly it just doesn't sound like a good time to me so I'll pass on that trick.
People keep asking me if I'm nervous and mostly they are referring to delivering the baby. The answer is no, I'm not nervous about having the baby, but I am nervous about actually having (as in bringing it home) a baby. The labor part I have instructions and coaches, nurses and doctors all ready to assist! Once we get the baby home we are on our own for the majority of the time.
