The phone calls have begun. Folks we normally speak to 3 or 4 times each month are calling a couple of times each week now to ask if we have any news. We're ready. We'd love to have some news to share, but Ishkabibble continues to cook happily away in utero. The weather has taken a turn toward spring this week, so I'm planning to do a lot of walking. I'm ready to meet this baby, and based on the u/s calculations, Ishka's around 7 pounds now. We're considered full term and beyond the reach of preemie complications, so I have no qualms about trying a few old wives' tales to see if we can get things going. No castor oil yet (yuck!), but the more pleasant tricks are certainly appealing now. I'll certainly let y'all know if anything "works."

Oh my gosh, you're so close! I can't wait for your little one's grand entrance! Good luck. :)

thinking of you!
and yes, spring is in the air, I went outside for a walk today and really tried to breathe it in. Sunshine, cold breeze, cold cold in the shadows, but sun. Here at home we still have 2' of snow, and kate sized piles at the sides of the driveway.

hope the fun tricks work!
