oi--i'm here too, now 7 days past my due date.
i'm doing lots of lurking b/c i feel so impatient and don't want to sit at my desk longer than it takes to scan through to find out how everyone's doing!
i know this is normal, but i want to meet my baby! and the comments from strangers are getting wierder and waaay less appropriate (i don't want to hear birth horror stories right now, nor do i need to be lectured on the benefits of breastfeeding from outside my stall as i pee at the grocery store!!!) i know strangers are excited and only mean well, but when my answer to the first question, 'are you tired?' is 'yes', it is not so fabulous to continue asking so many questions...
and okay i know everyone means well and is excited and doesn't want to be left out, but i am also getting irritated by all the phone calls--mostly i think because i am irritated that i can't say, 'yes we had the baby and it's a....!
it's hard to believe it is ever going to happen since i don't seem to be showing any
signs, am still running around and throwing balls with my poodle at the beach, the nesting is done and when at home all i want to do is sleep, and i don't even know what a contraction feels like (has everyone in the world been having contractions for days/weeks/months before labour??) i thought i'd be right on time b/c i had my conception date so accurate...
but s/he could come any time....and despite being a bit of a sourpuss about this last little stretch i am still veeerry excited!!!
