40 Weeks + 1 day

Whoorlita seems to be comfy and cozy and NOT going anywhere. Her due date came and went with not an ounce of fanfare.

So we took a 2-mile hike this morning.

Although this might be a better depiction of the way I currently feel.

Have you read about the Sneaky Hate Spiral at Hyperbole and a Half? Yeah. I am nearing Rage Sprinkler territory. (Also, check out Wito’s windblown Dwight Schrute hair.)

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must scarf down an enormous bowl of incredibly spicy Kung Pao chicken. Peace be with you.

    I went over every.single.time. Even though I thought I might because I knew each time almost exactly when we’d conceived, it was still maddening. Hang in there. I’ll send some labor-y vibes your way!

    Hahha, so funny!

    I remember running up and down my basement steps to get labor started. It worked!

    I’m thinking labor-y vibes for you!

    Little Miss Mel is cracking me up. I always think the spicy food before labor combo is a risky one!

    Hang in there. The days of waiting will fade into memory soon enough.

    Hang in there! Make lots of baby-free plans for the week? Then she’ll be sure to ruin them…

    too funny! my second is due Sept 23 & my first came on her due date, so I can imagine I’ll be feeling the same way if it passes and no baby this time.

    I totally feel for you- my first was 10 days late. At least your parents are there, so they don’t need to think of excuses to call twice a day to see if the baby’s arrived yet (“Hey, did you hear? Blueberries are on sale this week!”).

    My first was three weeks early. So my second pregnancy I heard about how I would be early, was already dilated to 2 at 33 weeks, and then she hung in there and was 3 days late. I was so miserable.

    I am so sorry that Whoorlita is late, but I am sure she is figuring that you went to all the trouble to make the induction appointment, she might as well wait until then.

    I won’t scare you with details of how overdue my children were, especially Giggles…trust me it was too long.
