I completed everything last Friday in a great hurry. I had a few hours of contractions and I thought that labor might be imminent. Unfortunately it wasn’t, and I’m still waiting. Time is running out on the deadline the doctor has given me. I have until next week to go into labor and deliver on my own before I have to go in the hospital for an induction. I want to avoid that for a host of reasons, so please pray that labor starts soon.*
(Just to round out last week’s yarn along post, here is the completed baby coat after it had been blocked and buttons sewn on:)
One of the more interesting books I read this week was Admiral Richard Byrd‘s “Alone”, describing the winter months he spent alone at a base in Antarctica. Quite a gripping tale.
