that Note Spelling is gonna be one of those kids that just never moves out of the house until they're 40 or so....
You know, considering

I was two weeks early and still live with my parents at 30, I'd say Note Spelling looks like he's going to leave the house at 60 or 70.
Hi there, Jester!!

I was just thinking it might be more efficient for Mags and PG to add on an apartment to the new house now, since they're refurbishing the place and all :P
Well, we are considering adding a mother-in-law apartment

over the garage. Bedroom, bath, sitting room type thing. We can shove the kid up there after college, maybe. Assuming he/she doesn't wait until after college age to make an appearance in the world!
I'm beginning to fear that none of the newborn clothes will fit, they only go up to 12 pounds.
You're absolutely sure

that there's only one in there, and not the starting linup for the Miami Dolphins?
At this rate, it looks like I'll have a new nephew before Note Spelling appears

I just got an email from my brother to say that their latest scan shows that the baby is tranverse, and their doctor wants to get him out a few weeks early (basically, before s-i-l's back gives out under the strain - she's in constant agony at the moment because the weight isn't sitting right). So they're probably going to induce (I haven't told my brother what you said about inducing - I don't want to worry him even more!) sometime in the next week or so, have a "trial labour", and if that doesn't work, do a caesarian.
So Note Spelling and my nephew, who were supposed to be born months apart, might end up being virtual twins!
So long as Note isn't REAL twins!

I feel for your s-i-l. All the weight sits on the lower back where the muscle wraps around. If she has back problems already, that could be a real aggravation! I have really come to love my chiropractor these last few months. Sometimes I go more than once a week.
It's not that she has back problems already, I think,

but that because the baby is transverse, it isn't sitting quite where it should be, so the weight is all off-balance or something. And the baby is huge already (their first child was enormous too - we build 'em big in this family!).
Huge baby, scary. Ours is still on the small side, hurrah. I can't believe some of 'em are 11 and more pounds as newborns.

Sounds like a turkey, not a baby. Ouch!
Yeah, like I said
|May 25 2003, 9:54 AM |
I'm glad our is small. : )
Oh, poor thing!

I hope she doesn't have to put up with this for too much longer.
In the bad old days (i.e. before caesarians were a viable option), transverse presentations were often a death sentence. Thank goodness for modern medicine.
