Well, today's date is the 2nd due date I was given. Can't help but wonder which one was more accurate. I know better than to hang onto a particular date ... I really believe babies come when they are ready. But I never knew that waiting, and being overdue was SO hard! I've been doing really ok up until today, but for some reason today I'm discouraged and a bit depressed. I'm bored and probably need to be out doing something, but don't feel like doing anything ... not even going out to get a pedicure or massage, which I probably could do if I wanted to. I'm totally having to take my own medicine, after years of "encouraging" my friends (including many of you!) that the baby will be here soon, that they come when they're ready, and to "hang in there". Serves me right!
It REALLY isn't helping that in the last few hours I have received no less than 5 emails or attempts to chat online from well-meaning friends saying anything from "Today's the day, I just know it!" to "Why aren't you in labor yet?" to "Did you have the baby?" to "You were supposed to go into labor on Sunday!". I know everyone's excited for us and just curious or whatever, but it's SO unhelpful when you're feeling doubtful and discouraged.
