A couple “what the hecks?”:

— I have lost two pounds since Thursday, making total weight gain now at 22 lbs. What the heck? Bring back the Dairy Queen, stat!

— I had a dream last night that Sienna was born weighing in at 13.5 lbs, and was 15.5 inches long (both very, very strange measurements for a newborn). Even more strange, she came out with long jet-black hair, and was speaking Spanish. She looked at me, wide-eyed and said, “Yo quiero ir home” (I want to go home). What the heck?

Other items of note:

— Her head is still at station -1.

— I am 80% effaced, not dilated, but according to the doctor “wanting to dilate”.

— On the dinosaur ultrasound machine, she still had her legs closed (modest soul), but we pray believing she is STILL a girl. She also had a full bladder. Why do us girls always insist on holding it?

— We could see she has HAIR! Yay!

Over the last couple of days, I have fallen more and more in love with this little creature. I cannot wait to meet her, to hug her, to hold her, and to smother her with kisses.

And this Saturday is my baby shower!!!!!!!



  1. Your posts always make me laugh! I had a crazy dream about Gracie before she was born too. In my dream, she was born with a full set of teeth, only they weren’t teeth at all, they were french fries. She had hair sticking up all over her head, and had the amazing ability to leap out of her crib as a newborn! 🙂
