Jackie must be quite comfortable in there. We’re now eight days past the due date and Katie has yet to feel even the smallest little contraction.

Not to worry though (easy for me to say since Katie is the one suffering). We went to see one of our obstetricians on Tuesday, and the baby is perfectly healthy. According to the ultrasound, there is plenty of amniotic fluid in all the right places. They also did a non-stress test, which measured both the baby’s heart rate, which was normal, and Katie’s contractions, which barely registered on the print-out.

REX Hospital has Katie scheduled to be induced on Tuesday, December 23. If she doesn’t come before then, we might just have a little Christmas miracle on our hands. It would also be fine with me (and certainly Katie) if she entered the world tonight, as Tyler looks to break Phil Ford’s record.
