Well, I'm still pregnant this morning. No baby yet. Many of my friends had guessed dates in and around this past weekend for the Monkey to arrive, so it looks like they are outta luck! Sorry, gals.
I must admit - I was kind of hoping that this weekend would be it.
First of all, my oven broke on Thursday, my car broke on Friday, so I figured my water would definitely get the hint and break on Saturday. No such luck.
I also figured that since I went to my cousin's bachelorette party that was 1.5 hours away on Saturday night, my luck would have it that the baby would decide that would be an excellent time for me to go into labor. Again, no such luck.
One thing I have discovered over the past few days is that Mr. Google is not always my friend. I have to admit that I have been incessantly googling things, hoping that somehow, magically, Mr. Google will tell me I am going to go into labor soon.
But, Mr. Google takes the easy way out. His answer for everything is the same....
"A return of morning sickness can indicate that labor will begin sometime within the next few hours to the next few weeks".
"Women who note losing their mucous plug have indicated that labour has begun within the next few hours to the next few weeks".
"Some women note a sharp, stabbing pain in their whahooige (yes, Mr. Google said wahoogie) near the end of pregnancy. This can indicate that dilation is beginning and means that labor may begin anytime within the next few hours to the next few weeks".
"Many women notice a sense of lightening as the baby drops late in pregnancy. This can occur a few hours to a few weeks before labour begins".
"Cramping in late pregnancy indicates that labour will begin sometime in the next few hours to the next few weeks".
So, thank you Mr. Google, for your undeniable wisdom.
Now I know the truth - I will have a baby anytime within the next few hours to the next few weeks.
Who could have guessed?
