Yep, I’m overdue for the first time. Well, sort of. Miriam was born in between the doctor’s due date (Jan 2) and my estimated due date (Jan 4), so technically I guess you could say she was a day late in some sense. However, I went into labor with her at midnight on the 3rd, whereas this baby is not showing any signs of imminent departure and it’s already 9am.
Time for some drastic measures?….
In other news, Soren has a very strange rash that looks like either German measles or roseola. I’m obviously hoping it’s the latter. He had a fever for a few days which was completely gone for a day or two before he broke out yesterday, but the rash is all over his head, abdomen, inside legs, and back. The only other symptom has been a runny nose and extreme fussiness. Needless to say I am worried about what it might be with a brand new baby coming. The pediatrician’s phone nurse last night said that it didn’t sound urgent unless he was worse today, or scratching, and then we were to take him in, so we’ll see. Sounds like he is awake now so I’m going to check on him and Dave may have to take him in if he looks any worse – hopefully making it back in time, if any of my so-called “drastic measures” work today.
Edit: Soren’s rash is noticeably better on his back and belly… yay!
