OMG! I am so tired of everyone asking me how I'm feeling, if I'm in labor, if I'm having contractions, if there's any news yet. The list goes on and on but it's all basically the same. No I'm not in labor yet, if I was I would be letting people know. I'm feeling very pregnant but otherwise pretty good. Getting really pissy though with all the questions. And wow do people ask the strangest things of pregnant women. Why is it anyone's business if I've lost my mucous plug yet or not or what I'm dilated to? Grrrrrr...... And being dilated does not predict when you will go into labor. You can be dilated a few centimeters for weeks at a time. I'm seriously ready to just shut my phone off for the next week and a half.
My main issue with all of this is that it's not even my due date yet. She's not past due. It's driving me crazy how everyone is acting when she's not past due. If she was, then to me it would be more understandable. I feel past due just because people have been bugging me non-stop for the last two weeks. I get that everyone is excited and people just want to know but asking me every single day is not going to make me go into labor any faster. Most first time moms go past their due dates.
Okay - ending my rant. Really I'm feeling pretty great. Just the same old huge belly which makes moving around a bit uncomfortable. I'm enjoying working from home. It is super awesome to have my bathroom close by. I think my cleaning part of nesting might be hitting a little. I actually cleaned out my fridge this weekend - wiped the whole thing down and all. I don't want to think about how long that had been. LOL I kept telling Lily she had to wait until Monday afternoon before making an appearance since I had a test to take for my online class this morning. Wow, that test sucked. So now I'm feeling crappy about my test. Not sure what I'm going to console myself with, but I'm thinking maybe some Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt after I have my doctor's appointment at 11:45.
Only 6 more days until Lily's due date and then only 11 more days until my induction if she isn't here by then. Crazy! And very scary. I'll be honest, I'm terrified. That terrified excitement you get as you climb up the hill at the beginning of a roller coaster.
