No one has ever birthed a toddler. No one has ever birthed a toddler. (repeat mantra ad nauseum)
I'm 40w3d today. Like everyone else, was sort of hoping to actually have a babe in arms by now. However, tomorrow is my 32nd birthday, and I'm feeling... well, greedy. I don't particular want to share a birthday with my child. Is that selfish? Mostly I just know how difficult it is to make a special day special when multiple people in the household share said day. (My DH and my families sort of suck at looking nine months into the future, apparently.)
So tomorrow I'm superglue'ing my legs shut.
However, this is also the part where I admit that I have said from the get go that I would go into labor on Apr 1 and have her the morning of Apr 2. It's even a sticky note in my file with the midwives. Talk about your positive confessions coming back to bite you in the butt, eh?
Anyhow, I've started the regime of walking, eating pineapple, drinking RRL by the gallons (was just doing the three cups a day previously), and roping DH in for a little action. If the wee one is still firmly entrenched next week, I'll probably get another prenatal massage and let her actually touch my feet and ankles.
Thanks for letting me vent, rant, whine. I know she's going to come out eventually... because no one has ever birthed a toddler...
