I have a lot on my mind tonight.
My computer is acting up..."why now?!" I'm thinking. So, I scrapped my work-out at they gym and headed to the library to do a post.
No, my priorities are not out of line. Making daily posts about my journey through to the end of this pregnancy trumps my work-out tonight because I know I have "theoretically speaking" five days in which to get in three work-outs this week.
But, unless I can get things resolved quickly, it makes posting before I head to the hospital much more difficult.
Before computer issues cropped up, I had wanted to write about some of the significance of some dates.
Yesterday ended the 70 days that I had started counting my calories...ten weeks ago. Making that decision has made such a huge difference in how I have felt and looked during this pregnancy compared to my other pregnancies. I'm so glad I did it.
I started a new notebook today...another 70 days.
I will admit that I have faltered in my eating in the past few days, but I also am determined to pick myself up and try again. To be quite honest...and I don't usually like using this as an excuse, but I do believe some of the eating is because of feeling frustrated with not having this baby yet.
I'll make rationalizations like..."I need the extra fuel for labor"...or the 3:00 a.m. time when I got up and had a bowl of cereal..."does it really matter? I'm going to throw this all up in a few hours at the hospital." Ha..now isn't that a nice one?
But as time passes on, and this baby hasn't come yet, I think to myself that I really need to keep a cool head here and not just throw all my efforts out the window. I mean as far as I know, it could be another two weeks before this baby comes.
A due date is really a good guess...based off the idea that the baby could come up to two weeks before the due date or get this...up two weeks after the due date.
But for fun, I thought I'd remind you all of some of the guesses that were made of when people thought our son would come.
*Our 15-year-old daughter guessed Oct. 31 at 8:33 p.m.
*My husband hasn't officially guessed anything... just that he'd like it to be election day, the due date of November 2.
*Our eight-year-old son has guessed Thursday, November 4
*and my guess was Friday, November 5 around 7:30 p.m.
SunshineMeg, I forgot what you guessed, perhaps you can recall.
Well, the library is closing. I'd like to share more with you about all the comments I am getting. You know that's what happens on the week you are due and especially if you go over due.
I will say that I was feeling slightly grumpy when I got up this morning to face my day. I wanted the baby to already be here and not have to spend another week homeschooling while pregnant. And it's not because I'm uncomfortable from being pregnant, I just think that mentally and emotionally I had built up in my mind that the baby should already be here.
Well, it's almost DD-Day (Due Date Day) ha, ha!!
Make sure you vote!
Have a good one!
Sincerely, Sunshine Mama
