**Update: 40 Weeks, 5 Days Belly Pictures**
I’m officially three days overdue!
I knew I’d be late I had a feeling the entire time but I didn’t realize how weird it would be to know that it would LITERALLY be any day now! At this rate I’m hoping to go into labor on my birthday which is this Friday and have him before it becomes February 1st. But we’ll see.
There are so many factors that are going into this and it’s really just driving me crazy that I don’t know exactly when he’s coming. Because that would just make life so much easier!
I still haven’t dropped. At least I don’t think I have it’s sorta the same that I’ve explained before sometimes it feels like he’s dropped and then he floats right back to where he started. Although I do think that he’s spending more time in the dropped position.
I spent some time on Twitter yesterday with a couple of great women who let me know some things I could do to help naturally induce labor. I think I’m going to start working on that on the 28th or the 29th. Is it really selfish of me that I don’t want to have him on my birthday? I know if he comes on my birthday I’m not going to be upset because well I’ll obviously be preoccupied but I’m going to be giving up so much to be a Mom and I’ve already given up so much…Can’t I just keep my birthday? I don’t think that’s too much to ask for. Maybe it is. One of the suggestions I was given was getting a pedicure so I think I’ll save that for my Birthday. It’ll be a nice little present for me I think. And hey if it induces labor that would be pretty cool too. And if I go into labor on my Birthday my parents will still be able to come. My Dad won’t have to miss as much work and David will be able to come as well because his finals will be over. I think his last test is the 28th.
So what have I been doing these last couple of days?
Not much. Just patiently waiting for the little guy to arrive. B hasn’t been as patient although he was thrilled that Bean didn’t decide to make his arrival yesterday during the Saints game…just like I promised. Speaking of the Saints B couldn’t be more thrilled that they won the game yesterday and we’re both excited to dress our little guy up in Saints gear. Although we have to get him a black onesie since the Saints one that B got him was WAY too big. Remember how cute that was?
Oh and I’ve been reading the Twilight series. Like it’s my job. I’m halfway through the final book and I’m loving it! I can’t wait to see what happens. Which also explains why I haven’t been on here as much as usual. That and not much is going on in my life. We’re pretty much as prepared as we can be for Bean’s arrival and we’re literally just waiting for that first sign that he’s ready. Oh and my computer has been doing this weird thing. See when I write in the compose mode on blogger I can’t see what I’m typing. So I have to write in the Edit HTML mode which would be fine if it wasn’t sorta weird. And other weird things have been going on with my computer. Any ideas? Maybe a firefox update? I don’t know. And great now and error has occurred while saving. I better post before I lose it!
