The Due Date has Come and Gone

Today was my due date (well yesterday since it's after midnight, but I am going to report things as if it is still my due date). I was really hoping she was going to be punctual, but no luck.

I woke up at the now usual 11:00 am. I felt rested and not at all like I was going to go into labor at any moment. I leisurely rolled myself out of bed. I fixed myself a plate with scrambled eggs, an english muffin with peanut butter and some strawberries. I read some blogs, checked my email, checked my facebook.

And then I was bored.

I really thought things might have started up last night. I was having some contractions before I went to bed. I was nautious and feeling queezy. We even laid a shower curtain underneath all of the sheets incase my water broke during the night. Plus it was her due date. This was when she was due. But other then the hourly bathroom trips there wasn't much action.


Joe came home for lunch. He had a sandwich, I devoured a bunch of pineapple, because this could help me go into labor. We hung out until he had to head back out to work. After he left, I did some work with our finances and organized some things.

I'm not even sure what else I did. Obviously it wasn't anything important. Joe came home from work around 3:00 and we took a nap until 7:00. After we woke up, we made dinner (some grilled chicken and broccoli and rice) and then we decided to go out on the town. It was after all, Friday night.... we couldn't just sit at home! So we went to Fritz, our local custard stand and we had a couple of concretes (oreo for me, heath for Joe, both with Lite custard). It was a really nice night out, so we sat on a bench and enjoyed our custard. Then we went to Blockbuster to pick out a couple of movies, then to Walmart. Because anyone who is cool hangs out at Walmart on a Friday night. Why should we be the exception?

Mostly I just wanted to walk around. Ofcourse it didn't help.

So here we are at almost 1:00am in the morning. Joe just left to get some popcorn for the movie, as he somehow managed to burn two bags in a row in the microwave. He was too busy flirting with me to pay attention to it. How can I complain about that?

Maybe something will happen tonight. Maybe not. In the meantime, I have to admit I am really enjoy all this relaxing and hanging out with my hubs.

Enjoy every second of this time!!! It sounds great to me! She'll be here before you know it and well-rested won't be a part of your vocabulary. :) But it will be worth it!

Lol! This post kept making me laugh...sorry. AnyHoo, don't worry. Only 20% of women's water breaks on their own anyway and you're most likely to go past your due date on your first pregnancy than to be early or on time. Just keep on truckin! She'll come when she's ready! I wouldn't want to come out either if I was all cozy and was getting treated to Fritz's!
