When is that baby due and other things I can't answer
So due dates are kinda like Santa Clause...yes they come and give you a great gift but it is really make believe told to you by a caring person that isn't totally true.
So the answer is, I don't know when this baby is coming. Yes I know I am huge and look like I could go into labor any minute....I get so many comments, at the gym, at school, during the 3k Tuesday Night races, but really, I feel great. I like being active and I like being at work. Better to have my water break at school than sit home for 2 weeks waiting for the big day...which could come early or later, one thing we know is she is coming sometime soon.
I do think it is unfair of Ocoee to not give me some little indication of when she is coming...this is the planner in me. After all I have been bonded with her for the last 9 1/2 months, 38 weeks, 266 days, 6,384 hours.....it is the least she could do. Makes me flash forward to the future when she will casually drop things like, "Mom, I told the teacher you would bring 36 organic strawberry cupcakes for the food day tomorrow at school," or "Mom, I got married in Vegas". GEEZ, we are setting a poor standard for mom notification already.
P.S. On a funny, hormone induced dream note, I dreamt last night that I was at home and she was born, but she was a chipmunk.....a really cool chipmunk but I was stressed because I couldn't breastfeed her. As I chased her around the house (boy chipmunks are fast) I looked down and was like, oh that's not my baby, I am still pregnant.
Is this a sign?
