Well, yesterday was her due date, and my dad’s theory that the baby would come right on her due date, because Ryan and I are so particular and organized, has been blown out of the water.
We did find ourselves in labor and delivery last night though. I decided to take a walk around 4PM yesterday, and I thought my water broke. By the time we made it up to L&R it was around 7. I was having contractions, but nothing major so I wasn’t in a rush. Well, they checked, and it appears it was a false alarm. We did stay there for a couple of hours monitoring just in case. Ryan passed out while watching South Park , and here I am trying to have our kid. He assured me that he would have woken up if something was happening….. and I’m sure he would have… because… it wouldn’t be up to him to continue sleeping. He did only get a couple hours sleep the night before… but still!
One major lesson I learned was EAT. OMG. Of course everything was closed by the time we got out of there, and I hadn’t eaten anything since noon. My poor baby had to eat Taco Cabana – the lesser of many evils I’m sure she was thinking what the heck is this crap, mom? I think that was her first experience with fast food. She seemed to do ok with it. She was jumping around in my stomach for a while, but I think that was more because she gets really annoyed when I’m hungry, and while we were waiting for the “food” to come out I had a glass of Fanta ‘Dontcha wanta? *cha cha cha*’. I rarely drink fizzy drinks or have anything with that much sugar. Quite honestly after the cuisine last night you’d figure she’d say…. screw this place… I’m outta here!
My game plan for today is walking. Ryan’s hip hasn’t been doing well at all, so my dad’s headed out to keep me company while running a couple of errands and walking around the mall. I’ll actually make dinner tonight too. Ryan’s excited about that. I can’t blame him. My appetite is so fickle, I don’t cook anymore. So maybe the errands and walking will get her to come out. I’ve been doing the whole relaxing thing for the past week which doesn’t seem to do the trick.
