Day Four - Nothing Happening

Patty is pissed off, and who can blame her. It's now four days past term and she is tired of being pregnant. There's the occassional contraction or cramp, but otherwise barely a tremour; she feels like she is going to be pregnant forever.

But while Patty swings from cranky to grumpy to angry to sad, she is amazingly managing overall to stay upbeat and have a laugh. I can't imagine how she's able to do that, so good on her.

On the positive side, we've heard there is a less chance of a baby being colic the closer they are to term. So a few more exhausting days for Patty might translate into months of less crying down the road. Easy for me to say though, I'm not the one carrying this monster baby inside of me.
