Due Date Blues

Well ladies and gents the big day has finally arrived! February 24th. The day we have all been waiting for. The date that has meant to me the arrival of my first born child for the last nine or so months. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand.. still no baby! *Gasp!* Can you even believe it? The nerve of that child standing me up like this. How dare he inconvenience my life. Someone needs to send him the memo that spa time in the amniotic hot tub has drawn to a close and it’s now time to buck up and join the real world because he has a mom and dad out here that are pulling their hair out waiting for him to arrive!

Okay, so I’m really not that bitter, but I can’t help but feel a little down as this day that I have waited for for so long comes and goes without any sign of baby. My doctor’s appointment yesterday verified that he probably won’t be making any surprise arrivals in the very near future either, so that was also sort of disappointing. However, I am trying to remind myself that there is no reason why I should be trying to rush these last days sans baby. Our lives are about to drastically change FOREVER and we should probably try to cherish them for what they are rather than wish them away. Right?? Plus, many many women go way past their due dates all the time and I just need to realize that I just may be one of those ladies. And that’s ok. All that matters is that my sweet baby boy gets her eventually and is healthy and ready to begin his life here with us.

In attempts to shake things up down there I made Sam take me on a long walk around the neighborhood tonight. I actually had several pretty strong contractions while we were walking, but they seem to have gone away now that we’re home. Rats! Here is a picture of myself and my 40 week belly treating ourselves to an ice cream sandwich after enduring all that exercise.

Just in case you can’t believe your eyes, here is a close-up of THA BELLY. (Notice the mardi gras party beads!)

Full term belly!

Can you believe how huge it’s gotten? It is really an entity all in itself. This has all just gotten so surreal at this point. I feel like people are now looking at me like, oh God here comes the huge pregnant lady DIVE FOR COVER SHE MIGHT POP! I just feel enormous, especially around my little 12 year old students! That’s why I’ve decided that no matter what my last day of work is going to be Thursday. I just can’t handle trying to weave my enormous body around hyperactive middle schoolers any longer! I am only putting them in danger of getting sideswipped by any sudden movements I might make. :)

So, forty weeks down, how many left to go? At least I know that I’m close. Verrrry close. I just can’t wait for this part to be over and to get to hold that real live baby. I just hope that, like everyone says, it’ll all be worth it. I have no doubt that it will be.

Well, I thought I would come here and find a pic of the new baby! Soon enough….it is funny that we have those magical due dates in our heads that rarely ever result in the outcome we expect ;-) LOVE the pic with the ice cream sandwich by the way!

I really appreciate Baby Gonzo waiting in his “amniotic hot tub” until I’m over this cold!
