All Dressed Up With No Where To Go. . .

Alright, I dreamt it. I am NOT REALLY having a baby. It is all just a fabrication... a LIE. (You could tell by the pictures of the bulging belly, right? I mean, that is CLEARLY just an over indulgence of COOKIE DOUGH).


That is how I am starting to feel anyway. The reality of having a baby seems to be getting further and further away. I know my widget (floating baby) is missing from my sidebar, but, I am still not to my due date (Due Feb 2nd) So, I guess I am being a little hasty, but, I had high hopes! After all, Wade was 10 days early and this baby is BIG and ready to come on out. She has been working on it for a while... (contractions everyday that never get close enough to time but are persistent enough to a-drive me crazy, b-make it so I can't sleep and c- make me feel the need to get everything "ready" to leave the house d-the answer is all of the above)

So, I have now cleaned my house for the 3rd time.. Yes, the THIRD TIME. All the bathrooms all the floors, dusting and all the laundry.. for the LOVE, CAN'T I JUST GO INTO LABOR?
I have not had a full nights sleep in two weeks.. Between having to go to the bathroom (every HOUR last night) or having persistent contractions that are JUST uncomfortable to keep me up. And now, I am so run down, that I have a dirty rotten head cold. No amount of Emergen "C" has been able to knock this puppy outta the park.. so, here I am... head cold and all.. still waiting.
I guess it has given me time to be more "prepared" maybe little "K" just was waiting until I finished her Initial for her room.

I got one of those paper mache letters from Joanne's and covered it with the fabric from her valance and soon to be dust ruffle.. Of course that is not done! It probably won't be until I officially move her in.. After all, Wade is inhabiting her room right now, and it is unclear as to when that transition will take place.
I also got her diaper bag ready. Is this not the CUTEST DIAPER BAG? Made by my one and only MIL quilter extraordinare! (Really she is) I got to pick out the fabric and VOILA, she delivered it on her last visit. SO cute, and just what I needed to carry K's stuff in.
Here is her bag all ready to go.. I guess all I need to do now is get her an invitation!!! I have head flower: CHECK! Go home outfit: CHECK! Booties from my SIL: CHECK! Super YUMMY ORGANIC SWADDLING BLANKIE from the sweet blogger Kelly. (She is so thoughtful, seriously, we have never even met in person!) She checked out my registry and SURPRISE! It showed up on my door step. Seriously sweet. The bag has a few other items. Chargers, Cameras, etc.
Now, ALL WE NEED IS BABY.

This belle is ready for the BALL! Clean bathrooms AND ALL! So, come on little baby.. come on out!
OH! I have given you a little Poll to entertain yourselves (some of you are checking my blog just to see if I have gone into labor yet.. checking my tweets... You are lovely, thank you for being excited for me) so, now, when you come to visit and find that I am STILL HERE, at least now you can VOTE... (You might as well have something to do while you are here, right? ) ENJOY!

I need to send you some of my Labor Soup. I just gave it to my friend on Tuesday and she went into labor in Wednesday. She is now the mother of two beautiful twin girls. You need to be completely unprepared, then you'll go into labor.

I can't wait till it really starts happening. I am guessing sometime mid-next week. That diaper bag is SO cute!

♥Shally said...

My SIL is due on the first, and she is feeling the same as you!

Basically she is totally ready to die if the baby doesn't come soon... ;)

Leah said...

You are SO crafty! I have never had a nursery let alone a cute one. I am impressed. I think you need to start cleaning other people's houses (like mine) since you are overcleaning yours!:)

Yes...super cute diaper bag.

And the sin was mentioning this kegel exerciser device...not watching Oprah.

I'm hoping Deanna shows up on Monday night! And you go into labor. ;)

Oh yeah...my parents live on Lake Pend O'reille on the south end (Bayview, ID). It's just past Silverwood and Farragut St Park.

SUCH a cute bag. Hang in there.

yES, I Am one of the obsessive ones that checks to see if you have gone into labor. As if you couldn't tell by stat counter:)! I LOVE LOVE LOVE waiting for other people to go into labor. It is so fun! Looks like she is going to be one stylin baby...so fun.

I'm totally stalking you too. I am so excited for you to finally be done and on to the next stage. Then we can think of each other during those 2am feedings...

Hey do you know the date your in laws are going back to see you? I just want to make sure I don't miss them this time.

Oh you poor dear. I feel for you and I remember feeling like you do. I was beginning to accept the fact that I was going to be pregnant FOREVER. Other people go into labor and have their babies, but not me. It was NEVER going to happen. Good luck. I hope it happens soon, like 5 minutes ago!

I am one who has baby 2 - 4 weeks early without any warning. Although I can't relate to this fun time for you, I can say that my pregnancy's are terrible as far as morning sickness, weight gain, swelling, pelvic pain, back pain etc. I'm sorry you are so uncomfortable and frustrated. Hang in there! I'm sending you GOOD KARMA!!!

Tina said...

P.S. Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog. Isn't it funny that you can find "true" friends in blogdom? Even if we have never met, we can carry each others burdens....thank you again!

Pineapple Princess said...

I am following another friend in the last stages of pregnancy and I'm about to give myself hemmeroids everytime either of you mention contractions. Hurry up already! jk Hang in there girl!

Christie said...

Hang in there. Those last few weeks are THE WORST.

Heidi said...
