Went to the doctor and she gave me the impression I might have to be induced, although I haven’t actually gone past my official due date yet. February 8th is when I’m officially due. The problem she cites is that I haven’t started dilating yet, but there’s still time, so I’m trying not to freak out. Next Tuesday I go in for another sonogram to see how much weight he’s gained since the one last week, where he was estimated at 7.2lbs. Wednesday we’ll talk about possible options and how long I’ll let it go before I decide to be induced or not.
On another note, Molly Ivins has died. I never read her column, for which she was most famous, but I own a couple of her books. Most notably, Shrub: The Short but Happy Political Life of George W. Bush. She was a smart, sharp, funny lady, and Texas is sad to lose such a great political satirist.

I’ll write about Split Infinity tomorrow.
