It's been a bit of a spell since my last post and I can report that there is still no baby, though I know by now Lisa is wishing and hoping it will all be over soon. It will be 39 weeks tomorrow making it her longest pregnancy.
We were sure the baby would come at around 36 weeks and true to form Lisa started showing signs of labour about 3 weeks ago. We were only at the hospital a short time before being sent home. To cut short a long narrative, we've been to the hospital 4 or 5 times now, each time with the same end result. I have to admit being a little perturbed at the state of health services here. While its one thing to read about how Fort McMurray has the busiest maternity ward in the province, its quite another thing to experience it first hand. Rather than go off on a tangent suffice it say that were we back in Ontario, I'm sure we'd have avoided a lot of the grief and aggravation we've had to endure.
On a more positive note,(we are expecting a bundle of joy here shortly after all) the decision was made a few days ago that should baby not make an appearance by this weekend that Lisa would be induced this coming Friday.
Yes, our baby may be born on April Fool's Day, which is kind of fitting, considering all the false alarms and run-arounds we've experienced the past 3 weeks or so.
