Yes, Nina, the worst thing that's about to happen to you is that Tommie is going to examine you. Dear God, not the examination!
You might want to focus on the bowling bowl that's about to push itself out of you.
PS, am I the only one who thinks Tommie looks like a cute little boy scout in the first panel? "Just here to earn my birthing badge."

It's a little late, but let's start the pool anyway. I say we see our first drawing of an infant.... July 23rd.

I can't stop laughing at Scott's incredibly goofy grin in the first panel. It's completely irrelevant to everything occuring around him. Poor Frank, this whole pregnancy thing is really taxing his drawing abilities. He has to draw Scott being reassuring, which he kind of succeeds at, albeit he's being reassuring that giant, green pillow/bean bag chair. And Nina doesn't look in pain in the first panel, she looks super pissed off at Scott's heavy petting/grin, and in the second panel it looks like she's transforming into a She Hulk. Look at those guns!
Tommie will probably have to stop and have some thought bubbles about the impending birth/her nervousness about midwifery, plus she's going to have to tell Margo where she's going/what is happening, and then stand there silently while Margo stokes the rumor mill. I don't think you stoke a mill, but I'm not really up on all the latest mechanical doo-dads. All in all, I'm going to guess Monday? Cross those legs, Nina.

That is the most cryptic answer to the suggestion that someone call the paramedics that I have ever heard. They follow their own rules? I'm guessing that Nina does not give to her local fire house when they call annually for donations.
Tommie to the rescue! A home birth with a rookie midwife is clearly the safer option than going to a sterile medical facility with trained professionals.

Oh my. A couple of days ago Megan said she was hoping that blackness on the floor by Nina a shadow, not something coming from her body. Now I'm worried it's neither, and is in fact a shadowy, sentient being that is wrestling Nina to the floor and, it appears, pushing Scott down the stairs. I'm getting a Rosemary's baby vibe from all of this.

Maybe the reason that Nina's mother died in childbirth is because she thought it was the stomach flu and decided to take a long walk by herself away from town. I hope that black puddle on the floor is a shadow and not Nina's water/bile that broke on the floor. Seriously, where is Tommie? I thought she would have sensed Nina's distress by now. Gaines Manor has a wine cellar but no clock?

Oh wow! I think Nina reads the blog! Yes Nina, you are a little bit of a fool, but acceptance is the first step towards recovery. So, if you're still reading the site, here's what I think comes next in the baby having process, based on baby-having episodes of my favorite sitcoms Full House, Step by Step, The Office, The Nanny, Friends, Mad About You, and I Love Lucy. So, you start having contractions (maybe someone with a stopwatch will "time" these, but I don't really know why), someone whisks you away to a hospital, and then after hours and hours of contractions, you push out a baby! That's... it? Maybe there's more I don't know about. Sorry. Should've hit the books!
Oh, also, your water will break at the most inopportune moment, which is usually good for a laugh.

P.S. I hope you've noticed that Nina's egregious lack of common sense has made it to the banner. She earned it!

Don't worry Nina, Scott is probably just out running errands with his publicist Margo. Gotta keep that rumor mill grinding!
In my mind, Nina's horror in the last panel results from her revulsion at common domesticity. "What am I thinking? MAKE SCOTT COFFEE? WITH MY OWN HANDS? I'm too wealthy. Someone call Jeeves or have the concierge bring me some Starbucks."

Oh hey guys! It's me, Maggie! I'm back. Did you miss me/were you angered in my absense? (mostly addressing Casey and Megan with that last one)
So, WOW, I totally missed a lot while I was working double overtime the last couple of weeks. Thank goodness I returned to blogging in time to see Nina get out of bed and think to herself! I would've kicked myself if I had missed this game-changing moment. P.S. I like how Nina's unbelievably wealthy father hooks her up with a twin bed. Thanks, Dad!

Yup, the paparazzi will be banging down my door any second now. Annnnnnnyyyy second......

Wow, Margo was right. I mean, I figured Scott was a bad liar when he tried to explain away his drunken canoodling with Margo, but he's such a bad liar that he can't wait to tell his father-in-law the truth, even though it's completely unnecessary and he knows it will upset pretty much the only person who might be able to help him get his wife back. I guess when Margo told him he was a bad liar, he really took it to heart. "I am going to be the worst liar ever!"

Another Tuesday, another four day recap. If this happens again next weekend, I'm leaving it for Casey :)

I think she's technically only Scott's publicist, as I doubt Nina would have signed on. Margo's pretty sure that Nina hates her. And Tommie believes that Nina can hear remote conversations from her undisclosed secluded location within the Blake home.

"Haven't you read the word Margo? The Holy Scripture of Midwifery by Olga Buttinski-Oldemaid? The second commandment of midwifery, after followeth your pregnant woman hither and thither, is thou art like a priestess to both mother and fetii, keepeth both in confidence most close."

Margo is so cruel. As if Tommie has anyone to tell gossip too. You could at least let her whisper it to the elderly, unconscious patient she has to give a sponge bath to.
Mary Poppins did say a spoonful of sugar helps one swallow the uncomfortable truth of potential/almost adultery...or something. I like how Scott is hiding this call from his father-in-law and not Nina. He's probably right beneath Nina's window, which she opened because she was feeling stuffy in her father's panic room. Scott's going to have more explaining to do.
