Aww, it was a busy Saturday. I won’t make you wait any longer since Anna still has not arrived. There are some concrete signs she’s on her way though. Good as in pain for my wife and not for me. For example my wife has had a dull ache in the lower back which is a solid symptom of labor. Friday night we took a dip in the pool as Mrs. Lessinges was unable to get any relief from the heat. It was a good time and I was happy to introduce mom and Anna to the pool which was so instrumental in my Ironman training the last few years. Swimming is truly one of the best activities.
We had great intentions to get stuff done today, but seeing as this could potentially be our last weekend we took a good long nap after a yummy breakfast. Yes, we did eat out this Saturday morning, lunch, and evening because who knows when we’ll get another opportunity in the near future. We’ll pretty much eat out if we feel like it these days. It’s all about the pampering.
However, a couple unexpected items did appear on the agenda today. I spied a mouse in our garage as I opened it to retrieve the MINI. For those of you that don’t know, I do NOT like mice or any other rodents. I have NO idea if this is the same spotted in our basement last November. I put out some traps back then and never caught me a mouse. I now have a trap in the garage and hope I never see the rodent again.
The reason I went in the garage to retrieve the MINI was to find some plumbing wrenches. Our garage is tiny so I have to back the MINI out to access our tools. So if I need a plumbing wrench, you know it’s not good. I attempted to replace a pipe on our bathroom sink, but had to give up. I didn’t quit easily though. I made three trips to the hardware store, sawed through two pipes, and used a few explictives in the process. NO dice! Finally a phone call was placed to a plumber who will have to fix it while I tackle other projects.
Anyways, to induce labor I’m going to be myself. It’s safe to assume my whistling, singing, and general smart ass remarks will create contractions. If not, then I will burn incense. Any other suggestions to induce labor? They can be legitimate or not. I’m not picky. By the way, Sunday is a full moon so we’ll see what gravity has in store. Have a nice rest of your weekend/Monday!
Pregnancy term du jour: “colostrum” –> some wacky secretion which comes out of mom’s boobies and is supposedly really rich in the miracle drug known as antibodies. Without colostrum, a baby is not likely to be destined for fame. That’s what I hear at least.
