Life lately…


Although my doctor had a hunch that my baby girl might arrive this past weekend, she decided to hibernate in my belly for a bit longer.  I was honestly kind of happy because MT and I were able to go out for dinner on Saturday night to celebrate my birthday (which was yesterday- April Fool’s Day).

I had pretty strong contractions all weekend though, and on Sunday morning, I was totally convinced that I’d have her that day.  I even made sure that we brought my hospital bag with us whenever we left the house.

When I didn’t go into labor on Sunday, I became convinced that she’d arrive on my birthday.  So many of my friends even called, sent texts, emailed, left Facebook messages, etc. wanting to know if I thought we’d be sharing a birthday.

By the way, yesterday the cashier at Publix asked me when I was due, and when I told her that I could basically have the baby at any moment, she said, “Well, you don’t want to have her today.  April 1st would be a horrible birthday.”  You should have seen her face when I told her that it was actually my birthday.

Anyway, my baby girl obviously wants her own birthday, and that’s fair enough.

I know that she’ll get here when she is good and ready.  I mean, she can’t possibly stay in there forever!  But I am definitely dying to finally meet her.

In the meantime, I am just enjoying some quality alone time with Michael.  I am a little sad to see it coming to an end, but hopefully, he’ll love being a brother and things will only get even better.

Once again, I’ll keep you posted on her arrival! 🙂

  1. it’s not a horrible! it’s my daughter’s too. happy to you.

  2. Foot in mouth for that cashier! haha. My uncle’s birthday is April 1st too and he’s a total jokester so it’s a good fit for him haha. I don’t really see the problem with having an April Fools’ birthday so not sure what that lady was talking about. I think being born on a Friday the 13th would be a little more justifiable haha!

    Can’t wait until you have your baby girl and find out the deets 😉

  3. Happy Birthday Sweetie:) Wishing You the BEST that your little girl decides this week to come out and play with you and her big brother and dad. Enjoy the time you have left in being pregnant and get plenty of rest. Happy Thursday:)

  4. Hope you had a happy birthday! Here is to a healthy and happy delivery!
