So, the lab lady was wrong and the baby most certainly did not come over the weekend. I think I'm going to have to change my baby tracker to reflect the French due date after all.
I see the signs a-comin', but nothing that says "You are going to go into real labor any moment now." Lots and lots of Braxton-Hicks that are getting more intense and sometimes preceded by lightheadedness. Funky circulatory things going on in my legs and feet. All of my emotions are magnified by 100% (at least), so the hormones are definitely kicking up a notch or two. Or twelve. This has been both good and bad news for my husband. But my back doesn't hurt and I haven't had any signs of imminent labor, so I reckon Baby Girl is happy where she is. Perhaps I'll get to finish the cross stitch after all.
Edited: I had my visit with the midwife...baby monitor showed mild contractions but everything apparently looked good. The mandatory poke showed that the baby doesn't seem to be planning on getting here anytime soon. I know supposedly this could change at the drop of a hat, but for now we still have some time. If she doesn't show up by her due date, I show up at the hospital and I guess we'll talk then.
Haven't had a response from the secu...they were supposed to call back, but no such luck. I guess it's good for the moment because they just cause me stress. The new pain-in-the-ass administrative dealie for this week involves the tax office, who continue to deduct taxes from our bank account that have already. been. paid. As in, not only are we not getting money for maternity leave, we are automatically being double-taxed and can't get them to fix the problem.
At this point, I need you all to hope and pray that I have good breasts and can feed our baby, because if the trend continues, we're not going to be able to afford formula. Oh, okay, I am being a little bit of a drama queen, but damn. Other than that, things are great!
