Heyyyy, guess what?

by Courtney on July 22, 2013

I’ve still got no baby news for ya this morning. Winking smile

Baby Tooth is still hangin’ strong in there, despite our efforts to coax him out all weekend long. Although there’s a little extra discomfort, we’re all doing well over here and still just playing the waiting game. We have another appointment this morning, which includes a non-stress test (apparently routine for the babes that are overdue) so we’ll see what’s happening.

Word on the street is that the Royal Baby may wind up coming today, so who knows…maybe Baby Tooth will share a birthday with him/her? If not, that means I’ll be living with two Leo’s in one house…oh boy!

As for the weekend though? Despite some emotional outbursts, it was actually really nice! A leisurely breakfast on Saturday…

A nice two-mile walk on Saturday (also repeated again on Sunday for 4 miles in total). Apparently didn’t do much to help, but it did feel good to move!

Date night on Saturday night with Jay at Jose Malone’s, with the same quesadillas I got there last time on date night. Super yummy. We also wound up renting the movie 42 that evening and it was a GREAT movie. I would definitely recommend!

Sunday morning rolled around…still no baby. So another leisurely breakfast was enjoyed.

Kodiak Cakes with lots of fresh blueberries. YUM!

A little time spent poolside on a gorgeous day…

I hung out while Jay attempted and successfully completed swimming a whole mile’s worth of laps in the pool. I was impressed.

After a couple text messages back and forth with my pal Kate, we wound up having her and Joey over for dinner for one of our favorites…pizza on the grill!

We cooked up two pizza doughs, cutting each in half, giving us two cheese, one bbq chicken, and one chicken and veggie pizza. We still have a ton leftover, which is perfect, since the whole cooking regularly thing still isn’t really happening. Winking smile

Honestly, I was feeling a little grumpy yesterday afternoon, but having a couple of our close pals over really helped cheer me up and get me out of my funk. Thanks again for coming over, Joe & Kate!

So now this morning, we’re off to our appointment…then, depending on how that goes, I may go back into work for a few hours. As long as I’m feeling alright, I figure it’s better than sitting at home all by myself!

I know exactly what you’re going through. There are so many emotions that come with each day overdue. Frustration, anxiety, annoyance at everyone asking if anything’s changed, wanting the baby here but wanting to cherish every last second with hubby before things change. I was right there too. Praying for you and baby tooth!

This is super last minute but have you gotten a sound machine? If not, check this one out. We got it as a gift for our son’s baptism and we still use it 9 months later.http://m.target.com/p/mybaby-by-homedics-soundspa-lullaby-relaxation-machine/-/A-10707864. You can have sound run all night and we use the projector to keep it dark and give him something to watch while we change his diaper in the middle of the night. Well worth the $25! Here’s hoping your little man makes his debut soon!

I know the anxious feelings you must have. Our boy did come a week early but I walked around dilated for 3 wks always wondering when it was going to happen. He came around the change in the moon.

I swear it got easier after the pregnancy ended (at least with Braedon). I could actually sleep again (even if only for a couple hours at a time it was more than I was) and just FELT so much better after the first initial week of recovery. Hope you’re holding that precious one soon!
