39 Weeks & 6 days

Thursday, January 17, 2013

This will be short & sweet...or not sweet...LOL!
The doctor's appointment went well. I'm another centimeter dilated, so 2cms now. But as most of you can imagine, I'm growing more impatient, and more irritable, by the day. I shouldn't be surprised, as my kids have always been punctual, though I've never went past my due date (but right on it once!).
I'm actually missing school right now and that mental distraction.

So anyway, all is well. If nothing happens by next Thursday, I will go in for an ultrasound and a stress test.
I do have to remember, that I have a good idea of when I conceived (I was keeping track of everything, LOL) and if I go by that date, my due date would be 1/21 (Monday).

No picture update...just not in the mood. I look the same as last week anyway...though I did gain a pound this time...first time since December 27th, so I'm cool with that.

Alright, that is all. Just keep looking for me in the morning :)
Big Hugs to you all!!

P.S. I'm going to go workout now...and I will be hitting 500 fitness minutes for January today...booyah!

    You're amazing and putting me to shame with your exercise. If you want that baby out sooner rather than later, I recommend fireworks. It got both of my deliveries started. Hang in there. You're doing great! Spark on!

    You cracked me up at the end. I know you are getting to the point that you just don't want to be preg any more and you want to see and hold the baby. It will be here before you know it. Try doing some of the home/old school things they used down a bumpy can't think of any others. LOL

  Sorry that your mood is souring! But you know as soon as that beautiful baby is here that it will all be a distant memory. I know it's tough but hang in there! We are cheering for you!

    Bless your heart. We all certainly understand the impatience you are experiencing. That baby will arrive "right on time" - his/her time.

Good idea to put your energies into the exercise. You are a trooper - for sure.

Hang in there and know we share in your excitement.

Hugs, Sunny

    I don't know what to say. I want to be like "be patient girl" but I also want to be like "I'm so freaking excited for you" and I want to hug you.

so, yeah.

    Oh Beth honey, you tracking and setting your date at the 21st is interesting. Baby will get here when (s)he is ready and we will wait and try to support you from our distant homes as best we can.
Praying for rest and good health for mommy and baby.

    This baby is definitely not in a hurry! (S)He will be a cool little guy or a cool little girl, without a worry in the world! Which is exactly right! And (s)he is teaching mommy and all the rest of us a few things about patience, right? Good things need time!
I'll be here every morning. Although your morning is much later than my morning which makes me think everyday "today is the day!" You've put the SP community on baby alert!

    Oh Beth!! I literally can only imagine what you are going through right now - hang in there! Your little one is just soaking up his last few days of "just me and mommy" days. S/he'll come when it's time!!

Amazing the fitness minutes you are keeping up - Super Mom indeed!

    hang in there kiddo. I really should have come out and spent time with u now instead of waiting till after the baby is born. The more I think about it I will just wait till Emily's party unless you need some help before that. You cll any time even if you can only talk for a few mins. you can call more then once a day. Lots of love mom
