waiting

The midwife came for a scheduled visit this afternoon, and thought the baby hadn't grown enough this week, so we went to the hospital. They measured heartbeats and movements, and just about everything else when they did the scan. The baby's fine. There was some talk of being induced, but the consultant is for nature taking its course. So we came home to wait a little longer.

Apparently, it's very unusual for babies to go more than 10 days past their due date - so that means she's likely to be here before monday.

Yes, that's right, 'she'. The scan showed a baby girl!

What's the feminine form of 'Godot', one wonders? 'Godat'?
