ok...so I know where my baby is, but at 39 weeks pregnant I'd really like her to be here already.
We're all waiting for her...her nursery awaits...the super cutesie onesies and dresses and other baby gear I made for her are all hanging in her closet...her helpful Yiayia (grandma) is here from Pennsylvania, her awesome Titi Theresa is ready to book her flight from NJ, our amazing Doula is on call, and the Hubbs Joe is killin me with his sympathy pregnancy symptoms! He's had a picky appetite lately, he's had some bouts of minor tummy aches, and he's starting to get kinda annoying. hehe. Yeah, so now I know what he puts up with, with me. Gotta love Hubbs Joe...the best Dada ever.
So when I was 32 weeks preggers I began measuring 2 weeks bigger than my Doctor expected, per the sonograms. The glucose test results were all fine, no problems with my pregnancy, and all has gone smoothly...other than the couple of months of day-long morning sickness which was super yucky.
But ever since I started measuring 2 weeks bigger than I should be, everyone thought I wouldn't last til my due date and my baby would most likely arrive early.
So now here I am, due in 1 week...and already feeling late. Like I'm overdue or something. When in reality, I'm not.
So that's where I am. Now...where's my baby??
It's contest time. Yaaaaaaaay!!! I love contests!!! :D
Guess what day my baby will arrive and I'll send you something free from my shop. Woohoo! You can choose anything from the section in my shop called "be cool with the baby" which has lots of sweet hair scarves, headbands, or cuffs to choose from. So go find your favorite item here in my shop, and then come back and comment here with the date you think my baby girl will arrive. I'll contact the winner shortly after the little one (or big one) arrives. And I'll definitely post pics on my blog to let everyone know.
Need some more info for your guess? OK, so you already know I'm measuring 2 weeks bigger than I should be, but my son Joey was born 3 days past his due date and I was just as big with him. Now I'm carrying a baby girl, and I'm super big and carrying low. My official due date is next Saturday June 7th, and my Braxton Hicks have been very strong this past month and occur sporadically throughout the day and night. My wonderful Grandma Lily's 96th birthday is Wednesday the 4th, and I'd secretly love for her to arrive on that day. Oh and I've been walking around at 3cm for the past week. (Isn't that special?)
Here's a picture of us at Disneyworld last week. Yes, we went to Disneyworld while I was 38 weeks pregnant. It was Joey's 2nd birthday and he had a blast! Plus we figured...what better place to go into labor? I didn't walk the whole time though - too bad I don't have a picture of the motorized wheelchair the Hubbs Joe made me whip around in while we were at Disney. It wasn't really a wheelchair - it was more like a chair-scooter thingamajiggy, like the ones on the Scooter Store commercials. It was pretty cool actually, and I got rather attached to it after six hours at Disney...I really didn't want to turn it in when it was time to leave. The thing totally spoiled me.
Pick your favorite item from the "be cool with the baby" section here in my shop, and then come back and comment here with the date you think my baby girl will arrive.
Have fun everyone!! :D
