No Baby Yet?

Is this a serious question?

Then commences the battle in my head whether to answer politely and smile or to just stare at the person.

 No. No baby yet. 39 1/2 weeks.


These last couple weeks have been a test in patience for me. You see, I'm Type A. I'm in control, things get done when I want them done, how I want them done, and I get a little, um, irritated, when things don't go my way.

I've already lost the 'guess the baby's date of birth contest' at work. My guess was May 10. That was a week ago. Boo.

But God is in charge. It's just hard to remember that sometimes.

I've been home (done with work) now for almost two weeks. And I'm doing my best to keep busy so I don't get frustrated with the waiting. So here's what I've been up to! :)

1. CLEANING
Why a picture of the blinds? Because I dusted them all for the first time in at least a year. Oh yeah!!



2. SHOWERING
I am enjoying every single shower I can get at this point.

3. SPENDING TIME OUTSIDE
Partly by choice, partly out of necessity. It's been so nice lately that one would be crazy to NOT want to be outdoors. But the necessity part comes in because Ben cancelled our cable and I have to do SOMETHING. :)

 Flowers have been potted. By the way, do you know how much buying colored pots will cost you?? Go with the basic terra cotta pots and buy whatever color spray paint you want.


The kitties get at least one walk a day, usually two. And they're loving it!


4. FREEZING FOOD
Because I'm determined to not have to officially cook for a while after the baby's here.

5. MAKING STUFF
A bunch of ladies customized some onesies for me at my most recent baby shower. I made a few, too.
As for me and my household, we yell "Go Big Red!" :)


6. CLOSET SWAP
All the summer clothes are out and ready to go.
"Don't expect to fit into your normal clothes for a while after giving birth." Oh yeah??? WATCH ME!!!!! :)

Just trying to keep myself busy and remember that I'm not in control. But when the time does come, I'm ready to go!

Jess,

This made me laugh. You sound like me (except I'm not pregnant)! You must be so bored but you are doing what I would be doing. I like your spray paint idea. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!
