Quick update

I don't have much to report, but didn't want to leave anyone hanging, either. First off, my friend's mother has recovered enough that she was able to be driven back home to Kansas. She has been transferred to hospice care there. The hope is that she will be more comfortable in her own home.

Secondly, the P family has all been reunited with their new children. The plane ride was survived and everyone is starting the process of readjusting. It's tiring work finding a new normal, but even with a few bumps here and there, the process seems to be going as smoothly as could be hoped.

Lastly, I'm still pregnant. I'm sure everyone has figured that out since there has been no post along the lines of 'They're here!" with thousands of pictures of cute babies. Tomorrow is 37 weeks, which makes them full-term. So I can have them any time. Really. Any. Time. Waking up at night is extremely painful due to the sciatica and muscle cramping. Last night was so bad I briefly thought perhaps I had been having silent labor and was in transition. No such luck. Walking is somewhat painful, also due to the sciatica. I've known 90 year old women who are more agile than I am now. Let's just say I'm pretty pathetic. My newest obsession is that I will go all the way to my due date (or later). I have a history of being overdue and the way nothing seems to be happening, I'm beginning to think I will not be having these babies anytime soon.

I will be sure to have someone post when (if?) these babies arrive. But, until then, I'm not sure that I will have much to would be just a lot of me whining and not very interesting to read.

Thanks so much for the update. I am sure after having five children by birth, you, like me, have tried everything to get your labor started. My babies were two and a half and two weeks late. My third was induced thanks to my doctor leaving for a missions trip. We will pray that things start moving soon. I can only imagine how "miserable" you must be feeling.
Blessings and prayers,
Kim Crawford

Crossing my fingers for a safe and easy delivery for all three of you.

Go ahead and post the whiny stuff. Or even just "still here" every few days... because otherwise? I'll totally be thinking you are in labor. I remember it drove me crazy when I was pregnant and friends/family would call and say "still pregnant?" and I'd be like YES! DUH. But now? I'm sitting here thinking, "I wonder if E is still pregnant or if those girls have made their big entrance?" So annoying, I know! (Also, since you just commented on my blog today I'm guessing that's a good hint that you are NOT in active labor right now...But STILL, you could have gone into labor right after posting your comment!)

Praying for you and for the girls too!
