oven-timerNo, I'm not talking about the invasion of Normandy during World War II.� I'm talking about my due date (Maybe it should be DD Day?).� Well, it looks as though I won't be one of those few women who has her baby on her due date.� (Less than 10 percent actually do!)� My oven timer must have broken.� I'm also still pretty suspicious of Baby Lump's scheming plot to steal my birthday.

Maybe not though.� According to my doctor's visit today, I haven't really progressed at all since last week.� Although the baby's head is low and I feel like I've been having a lot more Braxton Hicks contractions, I'm still only two centimeters dilated, so my status is pretty much the same as it was during my last visit.� I guess my little tenant just finds me a much too comfortable mom motel to check out of.� I prefer to think of myself as a five star hotel actually.

I do, however, have an appointment for my induction.� It was originally scheduled for next Tuesday (January 20), but I was able to reschedule it for a few days later to give myself more time to go into labor naturally.� It looks as though the launch of Baby Lump will be initiated on the morning of January 23 at the latest, which means he/she could possibly share a birthday with (Boston's beloved) John Hancock and, - even better - Tiffani-Amber Thiessen!� I guess you could say that on January 23, I'll be saved by the bell.� Ha.� Ha.� (cricket, cricket)

The countdown begins - either way, there are only (at max) ten more days left of a pregnant me!
