Hi Ho, Hi Ho,

Off to have my labor induced I go!!!!

Turns out my Dr is on call over this weekend, and since he will be at the hospital anyway, he is going to go ahead and induce me even though it's Saturday.

And to top off the good news, they actually came right after my last post and fixed the radiator in the bedroom. They also have an appointment to come next week and fix the other 2 that aren't an immediate danger. YAY!!!

Well, I will post pics and whatnot as soon as I get home... I'll see you all then.

Would you

take your landlord to court if your radiator heaters in your apartment built in 1926 were spewing steam and they refused to fix them?

So much steam in fact, that THE WALLS ARE SWEATING.

I am going to be bringing a newborn baby home in the next few days... into a SAUNA, not an apartment... And those pipes could be lead for all we know. There could be lead in the steam coming out... It's really easy to keep a newborn from ingesting lead paint chips, but lead in the very air she's breathing?

Realized I've been kinda quiet lately... my mom has been here waiting for Kahlan to make her appearance and I've not been spending much time on the computer. I'm still alive though... and STILL PREGNANT!!! *sigh*

Tuesday was my due date, and it's almost Friday and she still isn't here. I've been in the hospital twice thinking I was in labor, and both times it wasn't "active labor" yet so they sent me home. The second time I was having bad enough contractions that I was CRYING, but I wasn't dilating fast enough... so they sent me home and told me to take a Tylenol. And the contractions quit entirely for several days. Now, I just have random contractions, no dilation, and will probably be induced on Monday (or I hope they go ahead and do it Friday, but nurse said most likely Monday...)
