Waiting

by Kim on August 25, 2014

Hi guys. No baby.

I’m 2 days overdue, and let me tell you, they’ve been some of the longest days of my life! It somehow never occurred to me that I might still be pregnant at this point—or even that I’d spend this past weekend pregnant—so I haven’t had a THING planned to help keep me busy and distracted.

For a Type A super planner type, this is torture. Everything was ready on Friday—house clean, laundry done, hospital bags (semi) packed, and Grandma in town ready to babysit. I feel extra bad about that last part—my poor mom has been sitting here all weekend, basically for nothing!

Not that it wasn’t a good weekend. This kid had a blast with his new toys from Grandma.

I just wish I could have enjoyed the free time more, and stressed less. I mean, who chooses a weekend at the hospital over a peaceful weekend at home with family?

So today, I’m trying to pretend that it’s life as usual. I’m working on a freelance project, running errands, blogging. My mom and I have some DIY baby wall art projects to work on, and there’s an end-of-the-year party for Mason’s daycare class tonight that I was SO SURE we’d have to miss.

Other than that, I’m just…waiting…

P.S. When things do happen, I’ll probably be sharing the news on Instagram first. Are we connected there yet?? Follow me (fittinpretty) and I’ll be sure to follow you back!!

xoxo

I can only imagine how hard it is to wait! I didn’t have a chance to wait with both of my kids. They both decided to arrive 10 days early! I hope your little one makes an appearance soon!

Sending happy thoughts your way! FYI I literally tried EVERYTHING (minus the castrol oil) to get The Love Nugget to come out on his own but they all failed me. Hoping your little man makes his appearance soon!

Hang in there! My first was 11 days late. It became a running joke at work that they’d just have to hire him on. Ya just never can tell when it’s going to happen. Sounds like you’re doing a great job keeping yourself distracted which is good.

Hope this baby pops out soon!!! I predict Day 5 will be the day. Sorry, is that mean to say for someone who was hoping it would have happened this past weekend? I had to wait 7, so I’m actually letting you off the hook by two days!! haha

Hang in there, and can’t wait to hear the news!!
