Well, we’re here. The big due date. December 16th, 2008. We’ve had this date in our minds for a long time now! It may come and go without a baby, and we’re okay with that. I’m trying to be relaxed and patient….but it’s harder than I thought. Tomorrow is my brothers 27th birthday, and Monday is my 25th…so I would prefer if Nessy decided not to come on those two days….but I won’t be mad if he does. How could I be? I’m just ready to get this show on the road! I’ve had contractions on and off today, contractions that don’t go anywhere….it’s a little frustrating.
I actually really thought that something was happening last night. I felt even crampier, had pain low in my abdomen, and had to sit down multiple times….but then everything stopped. The boy was more active than ever. I seriously thought he was going to kick or punch his way out of there! After he quieted down, I had a pretty good night’s sleep, so I was thankful for that. Our MW appointment is first thing tomorrow morning….I’m so interested to see what she says. I don’t think she will want me to go too far past our due date if our Wee One is already around 8.5 lbs….but we’ll see. Here is today’s 40 week belly shot (next to last week’s photo to show you how much he’s dropped). Surely this will be the last belly shot, no?
