Update (6:00pm): Well, Anna’s on her way back from the midwife. She’s dilated 2-3cm and 60% effaced. By the midwife’s calculations, this baby could arrive in the next day or two, as the Lord allows. (Now, do I take off work tomorrow, or take my chance and go in for one more day?)
Is Something Happening?
Anna called just a little bit ago. She says she’s feeling “crampy,” which she remembers feeling before going into early (middle? I forget) labor with Sofie. She said she felt that way last night, but that she figures it was a result of all the walking she’d done yesterday. (This weekend she’s spent a bit of time downtown at the American Library Association Summer Conference, visiting with one of her classmates from library school–and my favorite of her library school friends–Amy. What’s not to like in a friend of your wife who can go toe-to-toe with you quoting movie lines from Austin Powers and The Big Lebowski?! Of course, Ardis is also a favorite of my wife’s friends.)
Anywho . . . As Providence would have it, Anna rescheduled her midwife appointment (so she could spend time with Amy) from this morning to this evening about five. We’ll see what the midwife says.
We’re . . . I’m . . . remaining calm–but getting excited!
Keep us in your prayers, please.
