Well, it doesn't look like this baby will be here during my extended state holiday time off. Well darn! That would have been convenient. Looks like I have to endure some more looks and stares and questions "Are you stil here?" The good news is that most state employees will take tomorrow and Friday off....so hopefully I can hide in my cubicle and go unnoticed for a bit. I never thought I would say this, but I am actually looking forward to going back to work tomorrow since I have been bored to tears here at home! I also had planned to take New Year's Eve off (my due date) since Caleb will be off....but I may just go in now...this sitting around at home business is for the birds!
Oh...and in case you were wondering (stop reading if you don't want too much information), I started losing bits of my mucous plug on Christmas Eve. I've lost a little bit each day. At least my cervix is opening some! That's progress being made. However, I was kind of hoping that I would lose it all at once and immediately go into labor like 30 minutes later. Hasn't happened! Wishful thinking! The thing about mucous plugs is that they are no indicator of when labor will start. Some people go weeks without it or pieces of it. I knew this, yet remained hopeful. Oh well....this little guy will come when he is good and ready....and I just need to be at peace about that. Easier said than done!
