Blah, indeed


I’m still here….still pregnant…..still waiting.
I know I must seem like a big whiner for complaining about her not having arrived yet. After all, my due date isn’t even for another 10 days. This is a different situation for me this time, though. I have never had to wait like this, not knowing when the baby would come. By this time with both the other pregnancies we had inductions scheduled. Now, Madalyn didn’t make her induction date but I didn’t know she was going to arrive early so I was focused on the date we had set. Johnny had a date set and we actually made it to that date. I have never before been sitting around at 38.5 weeks having NO idea when to expect the baby to be in my arms. It could be tomorrow and it could be another two weeks from now. *Sob* (Have I mentioned I’m a really big planner? Uncertainty and tentative plans don’t suit me well.) I’m thoroughly convinced this is the right way to do things this time, so I’m not complaining; it’s just different to deal with, is all.
I know that a lot of women are fed up with being pregnant by this stage because they are physically uncomfortable. Strangely enough that doesn’t really figure into it much with me. I did just tell Robert last night I miss lying on my tummy. However, I honestly have felt better the past three weeks or so than I had since last summer, so it’s not that I’m wanting her out because I’m miserable. I’m just bored. I’m bored with being pregnant and thinking about having a new baby. I want to have her here and get on to the fun stuff! Plus her arrival will be the first event in a virtual cascade of exciting happenings that stretch from now through the end of summer. I’m looking forward to getting that started.
So, ho-hum, that’s what’s going on here. Not much, in other words. I’m afraid my brain is rather consumed by this at the moment so I don’t have much else to write about. The kids are out on Spring Break this week so we will all be hanging around the house a lot, attempting to not drive each other stark raving mad. I don’t hold out much hope for our success!

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. I’m right there with you Mary. I’m so anxious as I fall asleep and think, is this the night the contractions will start? I have so much to do and yet I just want it over with so I can actually see the baby…tired of not knowing if it is a girl or a boy. Maybe your birth will jump start mine! Only a week behind you. I do want to get through spring break…let the kids have one final trip before we are saddled with a newborn. Good luck. Call me if you want to complain because I think everyone else is tired of listening to me!

  2. Soon! I hope by the time I am writing this (7 days later) that she is in your arms and you are no longer bored!!! Thinking of you!
