Still No Baby...

Do you know how many times people have asked me that this week? Along with: "Where's that baby?" "Is he ever going to show up??" As if I'm not ready OR I was somehow instilled with this knowledge of the time and day he will make his grand arrival? So confusing. I mean, hello. I'm waiting too. And I can promise you, I am more ready than you are. I know their intentions are sweet and I'm sure thankful people care enough to check on me. But good grief, don't ask a 9 month pregnant girl when that babies going to come? Just don't do it. It should be along the same lines as telling them: "WOW! You are HUGE!" Never appropriate. Never. due date came and went...For fear of not having "my last pregnant picture" I have been crazy about getting at least one picture each day. So here's what I did this week...

Tuesday: I voted (at 39 wks & 6 days pregnant). After an hour of standing in line- I got escorted to the front. So nice of them to let me pass an enormous crowd of people. I was sure thankful. I then headed to my Dr.'s appt. where I took this:

Then Wednesday rolled around... I did some laundry and had Dylan take my picture (hopeful it would be the last day...) I was wrong and clearly, very tired. Story of my life. :)

Then Thursday arrived. My due date. Dylan was off. We sat around and contemplated life. I wished my water to break. It did not. And I went to bed having some strange pains, but just decided I should rest and try again tomorrow. (So no picture on my actual due date.)


And here we are today: so tired, sun in my eyes, ready to meet our son and anxious to get this show on the road. 

In other news I feel the need to say: I am SO thankful for such a healthy/relatively easy pregnancy and I would do it again a million times over to meet our son, but I need to keep it real: I legit miss my wedding ring, my ankles and shaving my legs without it feeling like I just had a hard work out. ;)

Here's hoping I have him sooner rather than later. It's seriously exhausting keeping my hair clean every day just in case I might need to head to the hospital.
