It's pouring rain here today, I am not in labor, not holding a new baby, and the rest of my entire family (except DH and DS) are 6 hours away in VA for my cousin's wedding. She's my BEST friend- we've always been super close. I was supposed to be the matron of honor. I should be there today. Except I'm not. I'm sitting at home listening to the rain and nowhere close to birthing this baby.

It's going to be a long weekend.

Oh, mama! I'm so sorry! I'm sorry it's raining, I'm sorry you can't be at or in the wedding. Try and remember that you're resting up for this baby and maybe that will make it a teeny bit better. I wish I had some encouraging words for you, but I know how much it sucks to not have a baby yet and to just WAIT. Waiting sucks. Vent away. It's what we're here for!

Big hugs mama. I'm sorry... missing an important event like that sucks. I missed my FIL's funeral in April for the same reasons, and I hated that.

I'm sorry. That's one of the bummers about a June baby. There are lots of weddings, reunions, and open houses to miss.

Sorry you had to miss the wedding. That just adds one more aggravation to the fact that you are still waiting for your baby, doesn't it?

Can you do something you enjoy since you have a little free time? Book store? Pedicure? Shopping?

Well, she's married! Now I'm just missing the party : My wonderful friends and family are keeping me pretty updated via Facebook though, so I get new pics every few hours. It makes things a bit easier somehow.

I didn't do much today. Had some quiet time while DH and DS got haircuts, then I got out for a bit and bought a new car seat for DS and assembled it. Then I took a nap and we all went out to dinner.

I hope for some nice evening time with DH tonight- we'll watch a movie and maybe try some natural induction or at least have fun trying.

Hopefully tomorrow I'll feel better. I'm not upset that baby is not here, but it just seems so wrong that I missed the wedding of one of the most important people in my life. I went round and round about going, and it just didn't make any sense. She will come visit for a while after her honeymoon and we'll make up for it all then!

Thanks for the support. I needed it today.
