39w4d – 3 days to go

In good news, Julianna Nichole Marino has entered the world, to proud parents Michelle and Nick Marino, and proud big sister Adrianna! Congrats to my fellow pregnant friend – I will forgive you for giving birth before me even though you were due after me!

In bad news, I’m still pregnant, with no sign of labor. There’s more to this story, but Dr. Wilson bumped up my induction date to May 28th, going in at 7 p.m. to start the induction, so Angelica should be here on her due date. On the one hand, I am so happy because at this point I don’t care HOW she comes out, I just care that she comes out and is healthy. On the other hand, I feel that if I make it that far, I’ll feel cheated out of the whole element of surprise that I’ve been so looking forward to.

Either way, she’ll be here by May 29th and I can’t complain about that. I’m so ready for her.

About two weeks ago, the last of the pregnancy pains kicked in. I now have carpal tunnel syndrome in the same wrist that I had that weird tendinitis back in the 2nd trimester. As I type, my right hand is completely numb, aside from the pins and needles in my fingertips. “They” say it goes away after pregnancy, so here’s hoping.

I broke free of the “bed rest” today to go walk around Waterford Lakes and shake a baby loose, but it was all in vain. She’s still hanging in there, stong and steadfast. Scott & I at least got a good lunch out of it, and we went to Old Navy and Carter’s…exchanged a duplicate thing we got at Carter’s and got a couple more adorable outfits for the kiddo, and then got some new outfits for Scott at Old Navy.

Crossing my fingers for a baby in the next few days. I’ll be really sad if I go to work on Tuesday instead of going to the hospital to have a baby…I always predicted she’d come over the long Memorial Day weekend.


  1. Oh honey!
    I hope the pains go away….
    I’ve been thinking about you and scott for days… waiting to hear news… my friends sister had her baby yesterday… after like 2 days of Labor… being induced i think would be better 😉
    tell scott I want a pix msg of the cupie doll!!
