According to the measurements at my 8 week appointment, this baby is due today. It’s the EDD I’ve gone with because it’s the latest one, giving me some extra room before talks of induction will start. According to the date of my last period, I’m 40 weeks and 4 days.

It’s not that I thought I’d have the baby by today. I have always been pretty certain this kid, just like his/her brother and sister, would make a late appearance.

But, you know, I wouldn’t be upset if he or she decided to come now or tonight or tomorrow. Dear God, PLEASE LET IT HAPPEN BEFORE AUGUST.

40weeks

I don’t really show any signs of going into labor in the immediate future, though I know that could change. I’m only 2 cm dilated, though I know that really doesn’t mean much. Every pregnancy is different, baby will come when it’s ready, the due date is not an expiration date.

BLAH BLAH BLAH.

I KNOW.

But still, stick a fork in me. I’m done. Time to GTFO, baby.

  1. I so get it! Was 41 weeks and had an induction then a C-section. The constant asking of did you have the baby yet was about enough to make me go postal! Hang in there!

  2. For forty weeks, you look so amazing. Hell, for any amount of weeks, you look amazing, but FORTY?!? I was a bloated in every way possible, with such a huge belly that people were scared of it. I was a whale. You are a gorgeous, wonderfully pregnant woman.

    Alas, BABY COME OUT. EVICTION NOTICE OFFICIALLY SERVED. (Also, WE WANT TO SEE YOU!)

  3. Evening Primrose Oil capsules in your hooha. I did it for 4 or 5 days and my water broke. Could have been a coincidence, but I think that’s what did it!

  4. My little one was born at 39 weeks naturally, and I was already done. Pregnancy was not a happy time. But labor was, amazingly.
