I don't think I could be more ready for this baby. I guess there are always things that could be done, like clean carpets, and total reorganization of the house. But honestly it hurts to move too much so I've been taking it easy this pregnancy.
Every day feels like a ticking time bomb, or maybe its ME that feels like a ticking time bomb. I can not believe that its Friday and I am 40 weeks and 3 days along today. I can not believe this little one is not following my "normal" pregnancy pattern.
Yes, I am 100% sure that my EDD was Tuesday. I had a really early ultrasound, like at 6 weeks to check for viability. My original EDD (based on my cycle) was March 19th, but the 22nd sounded better.
I have a midwife appointment that I had really hoped to cancel this morning at 11. I am trying so hard to be patient and to allow this baby to come when s/he's ready. But that has to be the hardest thing since waiting those 2 weeks to take a pregnancy test. (Something I have NEVER been good at, I think I waited like 8 days, before I peed on that first stick. It was at 10 that I had the first faint line. Can not believe that was so long ago!)
Bear with me everyone, I am trying to be positive... but it gets harder as each day passes and this baby gets bigger, and bigger. (Did I mention my fear of a 10 pounder? Its there at the back of mind... if s/he stays in much longer s/he'll just get bigger and I already expected at least 8 1/2 pounds, which I think I could handle.)
