I never thought I'd have this baby early. Never thought baby would be born on his/her EDD. So, here we are. Today's my EDD. Nothing. To be expected.
My last two were 6 and 11 days late so I know what it's like to "go late". I know babies come when they come. I'm still rational about it. I know in another week, I'm no longer going to be rational.
So, meanwhile, I need coping ideas! Do we stay super busy and schedule stuff to do every day so we have stuff to look forward to? Or, do I let my schedule wane so I get bored? Dh thinks we shouldn't plan too much or baby will never come because there will always be "one more thing to do". I think he's right.
Dh is off this entire week. If baby is not born by next Monday, I'll probably send him back to work as I have a feeling this is going to be a VERY long week.Today
we're going for a long walk with our 3 year old while the older kids are at a play. Oh, and stopping for ice cream at my favorite homemade ice cream store!Monday:
All the kids are gone. I work in the morning. Dh and I are going to go out for lunch and run errands in the afternoon (housecleaner is here so no dtd'ing while we have no kids, unfortunately).Tuesday:

I work in the morning. Our older 2 kids' last day of school - potluck picnic.Saturday:

Any ideas for us on Tuesday and Wednesday? We just have our 3 year old these two days.
