Any Day Now

anyday

Tick tock, y’all. The due date is Friday and we are just going about our lives, pretending that we’re not wondering every day when we wake up whether that day will be the day. Baby day. So for your entertainment, a few things that start happening when you’re four days from your due date.

Anytime you call someone you don’t speak to on a daily basis, they answer the phone with “Is there a baby?!”

You start to clean any and everything you can just so you don’t have to do it later. But you want to punch anyone in the face if they tell you smugly that you’re nesting.

If your baby is due the day after Thanksgiving, you set up your Christmas decorations in the middle of November to ensure that they’ll actually make it out of the box.

You stop caring that you’ve been wearing and washing the same two outfits over and over because they’re the only things that you want to wriggle your giant stomach into.

And that’s just the stuff that’s fit to print! Pregnancy is weird, guys. But pretty soon that whole adventure will be long gone (and hopefully some of the details forgotten?) and we’ll be on an entirely new roller coaster. In the meantime, hows about we set up a little baby day pool and make things interesting? Who wants $20 on Friday the 29th? xoxo

  1. E was due on the 21st and born on the 30th. I went into labor on Turkey Day. I think we are going to be pregger twins, a year different. My money is labor on Thanksgiving, but you can have your son sooner, so…. baby on Black Friday. 🙂

  2. okay, well you may not like this, but I’m guessing Tuesday 12/2/14. My baby was due 1/2/14, but came after an eviction notice on 1/14/14. And I did EVERYTHING to get labor going naturally. She was just snug as a bug in there. And she’s been a mover and a shaker ever since! LOL, as it got close and I would call my Mom, she would answer the phone: ARE YOU ALRIGHT?!?! drove. me. nuts. Hang in there….it really IS any day now!

  3. Hate to agree with Dianna but *I* was supposed to be a Thanksgiving baby…and I came on December 8th.

    Haven’t been late since!

    You look GAW-geous though! Hang tight!

  4. Oh, Chelsea. You look beautiful. Enjoy these last moments being preggo because, believe it or not, you will miss them. It’s a strange thing, like you said. You are about to embark on the most love-filled experience of your life and it grows from the moment he is born until ever. Wishing you a speedy labor and a wonderful Thanksgiving! I call Black Friday so you can always go bday shopping with him and get great deals =)

  5. $20 on sat.
    $25 on sun.
    $30 on mon.
    and $40 at least a week late.
