40 Weeks

At this point in all of my pregnancies, I had a baby by now. I am really trying to be okay with still being pregnant with no end in sight, but it's really starting to wear on me. I was fairly sure I would go into labor last night. I cleaned the kitchen, finished the laundry, and vacuumed the floors in case someone had to come and sit with my sleeping children.

I had a fairly good attitude yesterday. Today, not as much.

So I am focusing on the after. I am coaching the kids that my tummy will still be big even after the baby comes out--and we don't need to bring it up. (After I had Munchkin, ET asked me when the other baby was going to come out of my boobs. AWESOME!)

So after the baby comes, we will:

Get rid of all the weeds in our lawn.
See if the pool will still hold water.
Pull out the fans.
Potty train the munchkin.

But for now--it's just a whole lot of waiting.

LOL I just popped by your blog from Dooce, but how could I not comment after reading ET's question last time? =)

Good luck on surviving another day or two until the baby is born. I hope she comes sooner than later!!

I'm sorry there's not a baby yet! Hang in there...I went 4 days over w/ McKay, so I know how bad going over can suck!

I am so sorry for you! I feel your pain. She will come soon though, if you need anything let me know!

I can't believe they haven't induced you yet. C'mon! Can't you see this baby needs out?!?

Paige asked me yesterday if I had a baby growing in my tummy because it's getting fat. For the record, I'm not. Makes you feel like a million bucks.
