Estimated Due Date!

Yup, it's my 'due date' which I know means very little as far as actually having the baby
in my arms, but I was hoping to be one of the lucky ones! It has actually been quite an 
exciting few days (exciting or frustrating, whatever you wanna call it) as every night I am 
up with contractions. Everyday once the sun comes up they dwindle and eventually disappear
leaving me wondering what to do for the rest of the day. I feel kinda like a ticking time
bomb, especially since my husband wont let me out of his sight, he's even started nesting (keeping one eye on me, while the other cooks and cleans)

So thats the story, starting saturday night I have been having contractions all through the 
night and try my best to recover sleep during the day. Monday night my 'water broke' or so 
I thought, but it turns out it was a hind leak. This means a piece of the bag broke but the 
baby's head has blocked the leak so it will either repair itself or leak every once and a 
while when the baby moves its head. My body has chosen the later of the two, leaving me
quite 'uncomfortable' a few times a day. 

I hope I have better more exciting news for everyone over the next few days, but until then
I am trying my best to remain patient and well rested. I have decided I will see a movie
everyday until baby comes (there is a cheep theater by my house) so that I have something 
to look forward to. Yesterday was 'Crazy Sexy Love' today will be 'The Help'. Hopefully 
tomorrow I will be swimming in my birth pool, but if not it might be a 'Smurfs' day! 


  1. Sending you lots of labor luck! We're in the same boat- both are ticking time bombs! I'm now 40 weeks 3 days and the only difference is that I've had NOOOO contractions at all! BH's..nada. I'm 2 cm dilated though, which I guess is better than 0 but I'm now just sitting at home and waiting. Anyhow, I can't wait for us both to go into labor and meet our little ones!!! Best of luck to you!

  2. yeah! You are so close.

    That is a bizarre thing about your water bag. I neer even heard of that before. Thanks for sharing. Now, baby needs to move his/her head and let it happen!

    hugs to you!

  3. I am so excited for you!!! Good luck!!!

  4. Super excited for you--I hope you have the labor and delivery of your dreams!

  5. Wow! Exciting! Keep us posted!!!!

  6. So exciting - it's almost time!!! Thinking of you!

  7. Sending good vibes and looking forward to photos when the time comes!
