according to the countdown...

We have one day left. According to how I feel, I wonder if it may be more than that. However, I have never done this before so I don't know what it feels like the day before or a few days before one has a baby.

All I know is that statistically speaking, most first time moms breeze past their due date so I am anticipating my original prediction to be true, that this baby will be born sometime toward the middle or end of this week (I put my bet in on May 20th for a boy weighing somewhere in the 8s). But really, who can know right?! And I did buy some adorable girlie newborn stuff the other day because if it is a she, I want my girl to come home all decked out!

What is one to do the day before her due date or the week of you might ask? Well, I have decided that sitting around isn't going to help much so tonight we are planning to go to the youth group end of year bash. And besides compulsively keeping up on laundry & dishes (maybe to the point where I put things away before Ryan is done with them, whoops!), I hope to sit on patios with friends, take walks and fill the time with good things. Like more pasta and ice cream. Yes, even food right that actually tastes good right now is a welcome addition to my oh-so clear schedule. I keep thinking that it isn't bad to live on these staples for a few more days because I know it can't and won't be forever. So here is to mac and cheese & strawberry shortcake ice cream.

Maybe the next time I post I will have news!


  1. SO excited for you!!!! These last waiting days are so hard, but it sounds like you have a great attitude about it. Can't wait for you to hold your precious bundle!

  2. You have run this pregnancy race well, and you are almost to the finish line! I think boy too... 7lbs. 8oz. Can't wait to find out!

  3. Thinking and praying for you my friend. I can't wait to hear the good news!! I'm off to eat an orange, in honor of you :)
