Happy Due Date to Ella Morgan!
I have come to the conclusion that Ella realizes it’s 2011 and I am DVRing The Royal Wedding. When I was born right before Princess Diana’s wedding people actually had to get up at 3:30 AM to watch it. She may be taking after her mom and arrive fashionably late (in life…my mom was a week early with me). There were SO many signs that she was going to be here by now…but obviously you just never ever know. They come when they’re ready.
This ENTIRE month has felt like we are being held hostage. I haven’t gone anywhere too far alone. Michael and I have adjusted our social and weekend plans around the fact that I could go into labor at any moment. Then you have our families who have been “on call” and waiting…also held hostage. I just can’t believe by the end of next week she will definitely be here. I went to the doctor yesterday and I am a solid 2cm dilated, almost completely effaced, which means nothing because I have been these things for 2 weeks now. I lost my “plug” last week, and have felt contractions and menstrual like cramping every day. Definitely uncomfortable. Definitely thought she would have been here last Thursday. Still no baby. My attitude has changed though. I am not going to beat myself up for stopping working already, or feeling bad that everyone is waiting anxiously. I am sick of walking in the gym and people saying “you’re still pregnant!” But what can you do? I am bored but needed to get things to fill my free time with…..
Thanks for all your book recommendations! Before my doctors appointment I stopped at Borders and picked up these two:
Love her books and she’s from the Philadelphia area so most of her stories take place here, mentioning familiar places which is always fun. 🙂 I stared it last night and am enjoying it so far!
Excited to read this when I am finished with Fly Away Home. Depending on when Ella arrives my days will consist of exercise and reading so it could be soon.
Thanks to all of you I have like a MILLION books on my Amazon Wish List! Lots of Pool reading for this summer! Many of you recommended The Hunger Games, so I want to check that out. Also Katie made some recommendations including The Uglies Series which sounds like they are a fun read! I have been wanting to get into Harry Potter but just feel intimidated by how many there are. I do think I would love them though. I have tried to get into The Sookie Stackhouse novels…I LOVE True Blood. One of my favorite shows. Sookie was totally different in the books, I think I need to give it another try but it threw me off how different the book and the show were from one another. I almost wish I read them first.
Right now I am off to work hard to induce labor 😉
A long walk is in order before it gets too too hot here…
Lots of squatting…like I was going last night, and bouncing on my ball for an hour, cat/camels and so on. My boys kept looking at me like I was crazy. I told Michael I was trying to seduce him crawling around with my ginormous belly. At least I got a few laughs out of him 😉
maybe some Shiva Prenatal this afternoon…
with or without the full body leotard…I couldn’t tell you, depends on how I am feeling at the moment 😉
I am very interested at this point to see who is going to be right in The Baby Lottery…family and bloggies. Right now 6 family members and myself are still in the game. And as much as I poo pooed you May guesser, there were a lot of you that might be right!
Have a great day!!!
Have any of you read the books I picked out? What did you think?
I can’t believe it but I will have to get you guys my official 40 week pics later on to add to Watch Me Grow if I make it through the afternoon!
