Happy Due Date to Me

November 11, 2015


A date I anticipated since my nurse called to tell me I was pregnant on March 9th, my 33rd birthday.
A very specific date down to the minute since they knew exactly how old our embryo was.

You’re definitely pregnant! Are you ready to hear your due date?
Ummm, YES!
It’s November 11th.
OMG that’s such a cool number!


Baby boy apparently has other plans and is much too comfortable making me uncomfortable at this time to make his grand entrance.
If he took after me, he’d be here early. But being late, that’s all his dad haha.

I can’t wait to see and kiss his face.

But if I may, I’d like to make a sappy cliche statement:
I’m in his birth plan now. I always was all along. It’s up to him on how and when he wants to come out.
And I’m okay with that.

Third Trimester Bumps and Must-Haves

Last one of these trimester wrap up posts! I’m being impatient and not waiting to include my 40 week bump pic in this collage. I am, however, being optimistic that our baby will make an appearance before then, but my midwife tells me most first…

What’s on my hook: Ombre ripple blanket
