Due date

Yesterday was my due date.

(thanks for the reminder just in case I forgot)

Today I am officially 40 weeks 1 day pregnant. I know that only 5% of babies are born on their due dates and most first time moms are late but it was still hard to see this day arrive and go by. 

Besides the first 16ish weeks or so I have had a great pregnancy. I really can't complain. I've gained an amount of weigh that I'm happy-ish with (as happy as you can be about weight gain,  I've had minimal swelling, Baby Boy has been active and healthy, I've been able to to maintain my pre-pregnancy activity level, I've been able to eat what I want and continue to exercise.  


I'm done.  I want my body back.  I want to be able to bend over. I want to be able to sit down with my legs closed. I want to shave my legs without injurying myself.  I want to be able to roll over in bed in less than 5 minutes.  I want to sleep in my own bed. I want to actually comfortably sleep.  I want to have a large caffeinated coffee.  I want to eat raw sushi.  I want a huge glass of wine.  I just want to be me.  

Clearly this little guy is just too comfy.   I'm hoping he decides his birthday should be the last week of June and not the first week of July.  I'm not sure I can make it another week.  

Sorry I'm being whiny. I just had to vent.



  1. Whine away. Being 40 weeks pregnant is tough. Hoping you won't be pregnant much longer!

  2. Oh man. I hear you. I'm at 37 weeks and already feeling that way! Come on little man, come on out! Sending you positive birthing thoughts, you can do it! :)

  3. don't feel bad about whining! whine away! {p.s. how depressing is that app..."you are past your due date." so rude.}

    i think you'll be very happy that you stayed active throughout pregnancy...i had a pretty quick recovery with minimal pain/discomfort, and i totally attribute that to being active.

    sending positive thoughts your way friend!

  4. Almosttttt there! Trust me when I say get as much sleep as you can right now!! Good luck momma :)

  5. Hang in there! I hope he comes out SOON!!

  6. It is close .. so close and before you know it, this will be past and over and you will have that baby in your arms. But yes, for those of us who have been there (and are heading there again- 6 months right now), we feel your pain. Put those feet up and enjoy a decaf iced coffee from DD... you deserve it Mommy xo

  7. It's okay to vent!
    Hope the baby come soon and you can enjoy wine and sleep!

  8. You're almost there! Little man will make his debut before you know it! I can't wait to hear all about it and see pictures! :) So excited for you! :)

  9. p.s. I hear you on the LARGE coffee drink and glass of wine!

  10. Oh I pray that baby comes soon!! I know how hard those last few days can be!! This is probably totally TMI -- but has your doctor stripped your membranes? I swear that is what made my baby come. Same thing with a girlfriend of mine.

  11. Girl I'd be SO frustrated too I just know it. I hope he comes soon! We definitely need a Target shopping date when you're settled ;)


  12. How exciting!!!! I can't wait to see the little guy!!! I'm getting kinda anxious and I've got 3 weeks left so I can imagine how you are feeling! I'm ready to be done too and sooo ready to meet my little boy! Almost there!


  13. wine + sushi + rolling over are on their way! so soon :)


  14. Hope he's on his way or here! I miss all of those things too and I can't imagine being so close to being able to enjoy them!!

  15. Congrats to you! I know from your instagram!!!
