39 Weeks and 4 Days

This is how 'pregnant' I am. I am posting a picture for posterity's sake. And I will say:

  • Yes, I am still here.
  • No I haven't had the baby yet.
  • No I don't know when the baby will be here.
  • No I'm not 'due' yet.
If I had a dollar for everytime I heard one of those phrases today I'd be rich. I'm rather sick of it. I'm beginning to get performance anxiety. Like for some reason I have to have this baby to satisfy the desires of others. It's making me anxious.

For what it's worth, I had someone tell me they were happy to see me today and that I looked beautiful. If you want to get on a pregnant woman's good side, those are the types of things to say.

I am eager for him to get here, but hearing all of that stuff is not helping. Really it's not. It just makes it worse.

He'll get here. Sooner or later, he'll get here. No woman has been pregnant forever. *sigh* It just feels like it.

I seriously started to wonder just how long a woman could be pregnant for.

I was exactly two weeks late from my due date.

I didn't go very many places the last week or so of my pregnancy, mostly I was too tired. Part of me was also tired of exactly the comments you are getting.

I think you are stunning. Simply glowing with life!
God has that baby's birthdate all picked out and ready to go.

What a gorgeous picture! I'm going through the exact same feelings. I'm still amazed how close our due dates are.
