Each day will have the same format and I will update everyday, so check back for more
And here we go...Today is: Saturday, March 16th
I am _41_ weeks _2__ day(s) pregnant
I am feeling: Calm and relaxed and happy my family is all in one place again.
Instead of having a baby today I: slept in and then cuddled with Whit while he snoozed on.... Had a relaxed morning, made some pancakes, watched Dumbo, played with Whit at the park and then came home and took a nap (with Whit, can you tell I missed him a little?). When daddy came home we grilled out and enjoyed dinner and the evening together and will soon be off to an early bedtime. A great day!
Today is: Friday, March 15th
I am _41_ weeks _1__ day(s) pregnant
I am feeling: Very happy that my Whitfield is home!! I missed him so much!!
Instead of having a baby today I: slept in (I had trouble going to sleep so it wasn't that much of a treat), shaped up the sourdough bread and 2 dozen cinnamon rolls for Whit's school's Teacher Appreciation Breakfast, made 2 dozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the baseball team, picked up some good herbal tea and picked up my Whitfield!
I am _41_ weeks _0__ day(s) pregnant
I am feeling: Very relaxed. I'm also working hard at taming my fears and anxieties... And I'm very excited about picking up Whit tomorrow and getting some good cuddles in.
Instead of having a baby today I: had a massage (heavenly!) and enjoyed the spa shower (also amazing!) Then I picked up Grams, took a nap, and went shopping. Last, but most important, I spent some quality time with my husband before he leaves for his trip this weekend. Oh yeah, and I started sourdough bread and got all of Baby Girl's quilt cut out!
Today is: Wednesday, March 13th
I am _40_ weeks _6__ day(s) pregnant
I am feeling: excited that this is my last day of work and sad that my Whitfield is not at home!
Instead of having a baby today I: went to work all day and went in for my doctor's appointment. Then I went home and tried very hard to relax and remember that this little girl does not like to be told what to do...sort of like her Mommy...
Today is: Tuesday, March 12th
I am _40_ weeks _5__ day(s) pregnant
I am feeling: very comfortable with Baby Girl not coming for a few more days even though I'm very excited to meet her when she does decided to arrive.
Instead of having a baby today I: went to work all day, took a nap, went for a walk (seeing a pattern here?) did some yoga, put together my nursing stool and made a pin board for the front hallway (a project that I've been thinking about doing for a while now.)
Today is: Monday, March 11th
I am _40_ weeks _4__ day(s) pregnant
I am feeling: shocked that this pregnancy is almost over. Yes, the last 2 weeks have been a bit of a drain because for some reason I felt that Baby should be here, but when I think about it I feel like I just found out!
Instead of having a baby today I: went to work all day, took a nap, had a nice dinner, played with Whit for a few minutes (it was tough to compete withe Nana and the exclusive "coffee club") and finished the baby gown. (yeah!)
Today is: Sunday, March 10th
I am _40_ weeks _3__ day(s) pregnant
I am feeling: good. Starting to get anxious about when baby will come and trying to keep calm, relaxed and patient.
Instead of having a baby today I: slept in (thanks Nana, and the time change), went to church, took a few passes at the big hill by my house, took a 2 hour nap, had a great dinner and went on a date with my wonderful husband.
Today is: Saturday, March 9th
I am _40_ weeks _2__ day(s) pregnant
I am feeling: pretty good. I am considering coming up with some interesting answers to the obvious "you haven't had that baby yet?" questions. Either that or I may become a recluse...
Instead of having a baby today I: made far too many pancakes for breakfast, cleaned the house (yes, again...) enjoyed a few hours of baseball in amazing almost-spring weather, took a nap, went out to dinner with the family, had some ice cream, and nearly finished the baby gown that I thought surely I wouldn't get to before this child arrived.
Today is: Friday, March 8th
I am _40_ weeks _1__ day(s) pregnant
I am feeling: a little tired still. We are all a little sniffly so no one in the house is sleeping very well. Not excited about working and not thinking a baby is coming.
Instead of having a baby today I: went to school all day, had a pedicure (yum!) then picked up Whit and enjoyed watching him run around at the baseball field for several hours.
Today is: Thursday, March 7th
I am _40_ weeks _0__ day(s) pregnant
I am feeling: tired. Whit had a nighttime accident and I couldn't get back to sleep. I really need a nap. But... feeling ok about NOT having a baby today.
Instead of having a baby today I: went to my doctors' appointment and cleaned the house (Specifically, I scrubbed the bathtub in case I need to labor there). Then I went grocery shopping, picked up Whit from school and went to HVA to have lunch with Kirk (and Whit). I missed napping with Whit because he woke up early, so we made chicken pot pie and angel food cake with whipped cream... all from scratch (and it's only 6:30).
The countdown ends on March 16th because I finally went into labor.
