Thirty-nine and a half weeks and still no baby… Something tells us, we may be going all the way to the 12th (but, hopefully, not beyond).
We were thinking it would have been cool to have him on April 5th — the date would have been 04/05/06. It would have been even cooler to have him on the 5th at 1:02:03pm! Too bad for us.
The 5th was last Wednesday. It was the day our 39-week checkup. Everything went very well. Our nurse-midwife said that Julianna was 1cm and 50%. (I’m not going to explain all of this, so if you know, good — if not, too bad). It turns out that Julianna has the a prime, baby-making physique… Who would of thought?!
Monday is the 10th. Way back when we first found out that Julianna was pregnant, Julianna had a dream that it happened on the 10th… We’ll see.
Julianna never ceases to amaze. Her last day at work was Friday, although she was thinking she should work half days next week… I don’t think so!
Friday night, a bunch of us went bowling for our friend, Jenny Wang’s birthday. It was a lot of fun. Julianna bowled a 90, which might not be the best score, of course, but she’s ten months pregnant for goodness sake! And, she bowled two strikes, which surprised us all.

Saturday, Julianna and I pretty much cleaned the house from top to bottom. We have been cleaning bits and pieces over the last couple of weeks, but yesterday was the “get it all done” day. And, we did. Julianna kept up with the work better than I did.
This coming Wednesday is the 12th — our due date. Also, through a number of appointments and rescheduling, et cetera, it also turns out that it is our next doctor’s appointment. I’m hoping that, if Julianna hasn’t gone into labor by then, our nurse-midwife will just agree to induce…
