Today is THE day on the calendar that has a little heart on it. It is 10-10-10 which has been my due date since my first ultrasound all those months ago!
Let me tell you, I have been in denial about having a baby. Today was the day I was REALLY hoping to have my son so that he could have an awesome birthday. It doesn’t look like that is going to happen. I have had contractions today since 12:45, every 15 minutes apart. No pain, just tightness. And they don’t seem to be getting any closer together. Being that it is almost 4 pm it is unlikely things are going to get going fast enough to have this kid by midnight.
In my head I am suffering from the mainstream medical notion that I should have had a baby by now. Logically, I know this is not the case. It is an “estimated due date” and not an “expiration date.” I don’t need an induction or a C Section because baby isn’t here yet. He is working on things so hopefully I meet him soon. Still, I can’t help wishing he were here! (and as I type that I get another contraction, woo hoo!)
I will be sure to let you know how things progress. We might have a baby by tomorrow. Or maybe this will all evaporate and he will come later.
