Michael Phelps Method of Induction

Today I went to the pool and tried to Michael Phelps the baby out but she didn’t fall for it. 30 minutes of hardcore lap swimming left me tired and did manage to cause one contraction but I hardly think I can justify driving to the hospital and telling them I’m in labor based on just the one.

Magoo started preschool. So cute, so proud, I tell you. He clutched his little backpack straps and was all business as he went in and came out of the school. Normally when he goes to a play date or his little church class, I cannot drag any details out of him. Today he was all about the details, what they did, what they ate, what playground equipment they have, which kid misbehaved. He is BURSTING with excitement.

Or course it’s no surprise that Laylee’s SO happy to be back in school.

I’m thinking of Tweeting updates when I go into labor, whether I go on my own or get induced. It’s mostly for my family. I think the majority of people living on the interwebs do not care about every single living detail of my birth process but my family will appreciate the updates and if you care to find out, you can hit refresh on my site and watch under Twitter Updates or you can go to my twitter feed at Twitter.com/KathrynDaring. It’s very likely that the updates will be – “Headed to the hospital” and then I’ll forget to post anything from my phone and then “Had the baby two days ago. Must sleep.” But that’s something, right?

For now, I’m livin’ large with Dan and the peeps and waiting for Wanda to get squished out.

    That Meriaton got me to come back and read your blog—way to go Meriaton! Darling picture of you guys in front of Wicked–here’s to hoping I can get my hubby to take that picture too! Glad Mr. Magoo enjoyed preschool–the girlies in my car after pick up were most excited as well…talking their heads off. I just hope the disobiedent kid Magoo refered to wasn’t mine!!

    Looks like you got to go to your show- that’s a plus right? I’m done being pregnant also- let’s get this show on the road right? 😉

    Such cute pictures…and the Michael Phelps reference? Awesome! 🙂

    Glad you got to go to the show. I hope the baby spontaneously decides to be born soon. Either that, or else the hospital spontaneously decides to shoo everyone else out of the way and give you their finest suite and a free induction on any day of your choosing. That’d be acceptable. They should include an ice cream sundae as a reward for having to wait so long.
