No Christmas Baby…Yet.

Kate’s contractions are small and erratic…signs that her body is preparing for birth!  These are the warm-up contractions…like a boxer sparring with his shadow before the big fight.  Our visit with the doctor was fast and easy as always.  No baby this week (as expected) so no Christmas baby; much to my, Kate’s, and the Doula’s delight.  Kate is at 2 cm which is good.  For those who don’t know the next step to look for is 5 cm, water break, and larger contractions closer together.  Then its off to the Birth Care center, then 7 cm, then 10 cm, and viola!  Baby.  Then we become outcasts from society and communicate solely through fragmented sentences on Facebook.  Till then…it’s egg nog time ya’ll!
