well-read and ready

so, i finished What To Expect When You’re Crazy (okay, maybe i changed the title a bit– but I feel that’s a more appropriate one)… and still no baby.

i would like to point out that the authors kindly wait until about week 36 to break the news that, though you have been counting down to 40-week gestation… this could last up to 42 weeks… yeah, i know. i thought the same expletive.

i also love the parts where they detail bits of possible pending labor… but then say- or you could have these symptoms and still be weeks away. awesome.

i am in that gray area now… feeling some movement, but nothing noteworthy. oh well… this waiting game is kind of fun (at least i keep telling myself this… my new mantra)… and the end result will be worth it… so keep your hands and arms inside the ride at all times, and enjoy!

  1. I know how you feel. This was me almost three years ago: http://clearepic.com/2007/07/enlightenment-a-new-plan/

    I HATED when people would say “She’ll get here, hold on.” So I won’t say that. But I will say – someday, you will miss being pregnant (crazy, I know) so anything you can do to trick yourself into enjoying this part, I’d try.

    One thing I did was take an afternoon off of work, buy some candy, go to the movies by myself and get the buttery popcorn. Probably still one of my favorite afternoons 🙂
