no baby yet, a little exausted!

well, I woke up this morning feeling exausted like I could sleep all day, but with three little boys running around thats not going to happen. I vaccumed and did dishes, a load of laundry, stoked the wood stove, washed the floor after the kids ate and now I am on the computer. I need to keep busy and keep my mind off this little one.

I am now 4 days late and really ready for this baby to come. My 2nd was 4 days late, and my third was 9 days late, so I knew I would be late, but hoping not too late either.
I think I just need some pick me up words as my spirits are a bit down today thinking I will Never have this baby. We don't know the gender so waiting is taking longer than I like. I really want to see who this baby is!
Theres nothing left to clean in my house I have nested for like 3 weeks now, its snowing and -21 and we are not going outside at all. brrrrr.

I need ideas how to pass the time, or keep my spirits up. I love being pregnant, but I would love to hold my baby more!

Thanks for letting me whine.

Hmm.. ideas to pass the time....
Is there anything you can cook up to have some meals ready to go in the freezer?

I pretty much have everything else ready.

Maybe the baby is waiting for the weather to turn nicer! Where are you? -21 would feel balmy here today. We were at -36 this morning. I think we're probably about -30 now.

Im in the interior of B.C. I think -21 is cold enough for me! its suposed to warm up in a few days so I will try and get outside to walk.
Maybe baby is waiting for the warmth. I don't blame it.

Re: no baby yet, a little exausted!

I'm 5 days overdue! So I obviously have no effective labor vibes to send anybodys way. The one thing that keeps me patient is knowing that the babies we waited on and didn't push labor or work at keeping labor going had nice short labors like 1 hr 45 min (with me only knowing this was it for 45 min). Here's hoping for a nice short and sweet labor for both of us!

Re: no baby yet, a little exausted!

I hear ya.. we have the same due date.. I went to an appt today 3cm 80% doc thinks she will see me by the weekend.. I have a feeling he's holding out for Superbowl Sunday.. and I have an *induction* for Monday.. so I know I will have him by next week. I cleaned yesterday which brought one some good contractions but fizzled out.. and I pass the time by sitting here on the puter and knitting.. but I am running out of things to knit.. and it's cold here too and my car is not going anywhere since we have over 1 1/2 ft of snow and more to come on Thur.. (( HUGS))

Re: no baby yet, a little exausted!

and to all you overdue mamas. I had to wait almost 3 weeks past my due date, but I am now gazing at my beautiful bundle. The wait is hard, nothing I tried worked (and I tried everything), but it is well worth the .
