Today’s My Due Date!

Today’s My Due Date!

Yep, today is my supposed due date.

I guess due dates are truly estimates though, right?

G was born at 40 weeks and 4 days. I guess my babies aren’t quite in a rush to come out? I mean its cozy in there and scary out here.

My mom and mother-in-law arrived yesterday afternoon because T.J. works on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s and I didn’t want to be home alone with G just in case I were to go into labor. He is an hours drive away and that just makes me nervous. New York and Connecticut traffic can be very temperamental. I can’t imagine myself going into labor and driving myself and G to the hospital. Can you imagine? 🙂

So, the three of us are keeping busy here at the house. Lots of outside activities and playtime. Luckily the weather is partially cooperating and we can get outside early even if there is a quick storm in the afternoon.

Crockpot is also my friend today and I’m pinning tons of recipes over on Pinterest. Today’s recipe is Hawaiian BBQ chicken and has just three ingredients! Chicken, BBQ sauce and pineapple chunks which you serve over rice. You can find the recipe here. I’m pretty excited about it and it smells delicious in here.

So, after nine months we are still waiting. Officially on baby watch. Went to the OB yesterday and I was dilated about 2cm which is the same as last weeks appointment.

Feeling large and tired. Can’t shave my legs or walk around much without getting winded. Trying to keep up with a 2.5 year old is damn near impossible. Eating is at a bare minimum since my stomach is up near my throat which sucks since I’m kinda hungry. And sleep…psssf…I guess I get some in-between all the peeing I have to do at night.

How did you pass the time while you awaited the arrival of your baby? The first time around I was napping at least twice a day and lounging around. Two things I’m not doing at all this time.

  1. Ya I’ve hit the eating/full/hungry stage which sucks. Back to grazing I suppose? And insomnia has kicked in. Sometimes it’s when I lay down. Sometimes in the middle of the night after I get up to pee. Friday my mom is gonna keep A so I can get some freezer meals done!!

  2. With my first, Cheistmas shopping kept me occupied the final weeks between working and birth. With the second, the first and I were always on the go, but I slept every moment I could!

  3. Ahhhh, I can’t wait for you and baby to come!
