Any Day Now!

We went to see the doctor today and it looks like the behemoth-spawn could arrive any day now! I have already dilated 2cm and my cervix is soft- all good things! Now please keep your fingers crossed for me and I will keep my legs crossed that the spawn doesn't arrive this weekend!! Matthew is over in Dawson Creek standing in our friends wedding. I am so jealous that I could not go! If I need him, he is only a 6 hour drive away.

It is 11 days until my due date, but the doctor didn't think I would last that long. Hurray!! But I was almost hoping I would make it to July 4th so I could go and see Transformers at the theatre here on the 3rd :)

The behemoth-spawn is kicking up a storm tonight! It is so odd to see my belly moving around; it still creeps me out a bit. I guess he is just trying to kick his way downstream!

Edmonton is loud and insane tonight. I am up on the 29th floor and I think I can hear ambulance and fire trucks from anywhere in the city. And when I look over my balcony I can see all of the people that come out after dark- it definately makes me stay in my hotel! I am looking forward to getting back to Kugluktuk where it is quiet in comparison!

That's so exciting! If you have wee-spawn before I come to visit, you must stay in Edmonton so that I can meet him and see you.

ooooo, so exciting! now the forcing the baby out game begin!, try walking and sex, it didnt work for us, but maybe it will work for you.

i am sorry if i sound like an ass here, but maybe Matt is right, cause I was dilated for 2 cm for 3 bloody weeks and was finally induced at 39 weeks cause she was stuck but i hope your little man will cooperate. girls are so much more stubborn i guess! :)
