New house but no baby...

Um, ya, so my due date came and went....and still, no baby. We got in our new house this last Friday. I was on my hands and knees cleaning, packing, and unpacking. Friday and Saturday were insane but we had amazing help, especially from my dad and sister. We couldn't have done it without them. My mom has been cleaning baby clothes and organizing the baby's room for us. We have appreciated the help so much because I have felt overwhelmed more than once. We love our new house but are so ready for the little guy to come. I seriously thought that once he knew he had a place to come home to, he would come. No deal.
I worked Sunday, Monday and today and still, nothing. On my feet for 13 hours...not enough. At my appointment yesterday, I was dilated to a 2 and my doctor stripped my membranes. Still, not feeling a thing. In fact, probably the opposite. I have felt my best in many weeks these last 4 days besides being tired. Incredible. Not sure what else to do. The little guy has a mind of his own and has decided he will come when he is ready. I refuse to be induced because I am going to try to do this whole thing natural. I believe babies come when they are ready. But my doctor will induce me by next Tuesday, a week after my due date. So I guess we will see. He is measuring 8'15" although my doctor said I don't look that big and he is pretty sure the baby won't be that big. But, you never know. And every day he is just going to keep growing. Pray for me!!!

Pictures of the new house to come. We just got our Internet up and running so I will post pictures soon...hopefully of the house AND new baby.

I waited for Pete to come naturally, and he was 13 days late and 10 lbs 10 oz! My doctor kept telling me he didn't feel like a big baby. With Ben, I opted to be induced 3 days early, and he was 9 lbs 4 oz, and my doctor was surprised because he didn't think he'd be that big. Take the inducement if it comes down to it.

Maybe your little guy is holding out to be a firecracker!

Oh Jadee.. I am so sorry. Good thing you are feeling well though. I have had a baby gift, wrapped, and waiting in my car for a month now! Can't wait to come and see you guys and bring the gift!

Those last few days definitely drag... like you are in limbo waiting for your life to completely change, but you can't quite picture EXACTLY what that change will be or feel like.

Good luck!

Oh man I can't even comprehend going past my due date let alone to it! I've had all mine 2-3 weeks early! You are such a trooper! At least you feel good! It would be a different story if you didn't feel good! Glad you are in your new house before he comes though!

I hope he is 10 pounds. Like Chase. Then they will have something to talk about when he is born. I hate to break it to you sista but I think we are doomed(or blessed maybe) to have fatty babies!
