Due Date Drama

Well, our August 6th due date came and went, and we still don't have a baby. We went to the doctor yesterday and I had not progressed any further. Oh well. Needless to say, I was in quite a funk yesterday. I'm starting to agree with the research that says women should not be given a due date...maybe a due week or month. How much pressure can you put on one day? I have another doctor's appointment on Monday, and then on Tuesday, August 12th, they are going to induce me. Not my picture perfect idea of how I wanted this kiddo to arrive, but the beautiful thing is I'll get to hold our baby regardless of how he/she arrive. For that I am eternally grateful. So, now I'm just saying that I'm going to get to meet Peanut on the 12th. If anything changes, you'll hear me shouting with excitement.

I agree... why should they give you a due date? How are they supposed know? Estimates are always less disappointing :)
I'm going to say "Peanut, we'll see you soon!"

We've been thinking about all of you!! I want to call you to chat now because you won't have any time soon! Don't worry, Rhonda, at least you know that within a couple of days the Peanut will pop!! Maggie Moo had to be coaxed out as well-I understand your frustration in the passing of D-Day. Can't wait to find out if we have a Miss or Mr. Peanut!!

Congratulations to both of you:) Rhonda, I feel like you've been pregnant for a year. I noticed that you used the word "pee" in a previous post. I'm not sure I agree with such language.
