Today is my due date...

Today is my due date.  The ultrasound we had back in July predicted it might be a bit earlier, but not by much.  Therefore, I never let myself believe he would come sooner, until they put my on bed rest. Then I've been anticipating his arrival every single second since. 

Yesterday I couldn't handle being home one more minute.  I begged Chris to take me to the new Hunger Games movie.  Chris has been so protective about me resting.  However, I think he knew I was on the verge of breakdown, so he took me.  We got a seat on the end so I could go use the restroom a billion times and it was perfect, just what I needed. 

When I got out of the movie I had a number of missed calls from friends and family.  I get calls and texts everyday from people wanting to know if there has been any progress.  Unfortunately, I can never tell any of them any good news, I'm still just laying here.   I'm sort of over even responding half the time. That sounds horrible, but I never had any news so I just stopped calling back.  So sorry everyone who has called or text me since yesterday.  I've given up on notifying everyone of my condition.  I think I will be so excited when labor does happen, all your phones will be ringing off the hook with the good news. 

As of today Chris and I are going across the street to take the sacramenat together. It seems fitting since I will need any extra help I can get this week.  Otherwise, I will just be here wishing and hoping this guy will come hang out with us soon.  Thanks again entertaining my pregnancy play by play.

  1. Happy Due Date! Next time I'm preg I'm saying my due date is a week later than it really is. I was sooo annoyed with people when I was still pregnant on my due date and for the following week that baby was still cooking. I hope baby Bates decides to make his appearance soon. I can't wait to meet him. Also, glad you got out to see the movie!!!
