Another self-indulgent pregnancy post.



...but thankfully, this will be the last. I promise. I am going to be acupunctured tomorrow - to encourage little one to move. I've been talking it over with her (while I walk down the street, in the park, in the bath, etc. - we are two, so clearly I am not talking to myself). I've been presenting the early exit option as one that would foster better relations in the real world. She will see, I tell her. I point out all the things that she is missing out on - the crazy kid on the swing, the dachshund puppy whose yips she can only hear, the beautiful sunset. I tell her it is too bad she has decided to stay inside. (..."Ooohhh, look at that! Oh, you can't, because you can't see anything in there," followed by a cheeky snicker). Official due date - Saturday. She is done. She should come now. I promise to be nice. Xavier even nicer.

ah, this is all so very cool!! (yes, my most descriptive adj.)

besides a final congrats and good luck, just have to say, i have really appreciated the ways you've spoken to this process. your perspective, even at times subtle in your words, has been refreshingly divergent from normal ways of approaching maternity/paternity/parenting. and i think its been noted and appreciated by readers beyond me.

much love and well wishes on it all, alison

Argh! I thought radio silence meant she had arrived (and I couldn't believe you weren't liveblogging one of the most important events in your life...) *good thoughts* Bisous!!

It's not self-indulgent if it's your blog and it's the biggest life-changing event of your existence so far. Good luck for the impending delivery.

I have been thinking of you Emilie. Your posts are just darling. I am not surprised this little one wants to be as close to you as possible for as long as she can. Best of luck!

Either fortunately or unfortunately, they come when THEY want to! My first was 13 days late. Others were a bit more cooperative and the 5th and 6th were right on their due date. (It only took eleven and 18 years to persuade them to do as their mother wished!)

Hopefully your wait will not be for much longer!
