40 Weeks...I made it!

Well, I really never thought I would make it to my due date! Not that I didnt want to, but everyone has made me believe that I would go early from the very beginning. Umm yeah- thanks for all that.....:/ But its ok! I know that our baby is that much healthier because he is FULLY cooked. :) 
Now that I have reached the day that has been marked in my calendar since January, Im soo anxious! I am now hoping for a birthday of 10-10-10....I said that all along not realzing how much I did NOT want to be late, but if he is going to make we wait, I hope he comes on the 1oth. I always said he would be a perfect score baby if he was born 10-10-10! (I'm sure he will perfect anyways)
Im going to TRY to relax this weekend and make some kind of plans so I am not sitting around the house waiting for something to happen.....I cant stand thinking about it!
I have been praying for patience ALL week and while I do feel a little better about not having him yet, I still cant stop thinking about it...but is that even possible????

  1. I would keep the maternity jeans out because they are more comfortable to wear afterward. Really can't believe he is still hanging around. Give him his eviction notice!!!
