This, That, And Cupcake Cravings

Heeeey! It's Monday, and yep I am still pregnant!! I've been trying really hard to distract myself and just be *okay* with waiting it out. Some moments I am good and feel at peace with Baby Girl coming when she wants to come. Some moments I want to scream out of frustration at this seemingly never-ending journey! Right now? I'm alright! It really helps to have things to look forward to besides waiting for labor.

Michael and I decided yesterday that it would be fun to get the family together (both sets of parents and any available siblings) and go out to dinner as a sort of last 'Hurrah' so tonight we will be going to dinner at Olive Garden. It's been on my mind lately. The breadsticks with marinara sauce, the salad, and I think I will be ordering the eggplant. I've heard rumors that eggplant can start labor and so I will give it a chance, since I've tried just about everything else! I might as well, right? I'm not actually believing any of those wives tales anymore though. Nothing works on me! Oh well. Eggplant is yummy anyway :).

Tomorrow is my due date. I don't expect to go into labor just because it's my due date. But it is nice to know I will have reached 40 weeks! I feel like I have been pregnant for SO LONG. I think it will be strange at first to adjust to not being pregnant. I'll probably be feeling the baby move in me even after she isn't there anymore. Like when you get off of a boat after a long day of riding on it and you still feel the movements of the boat over the water. Except imagine riding that boat for 40 or so weeks! Ha. We'll see! Mostly I just can't wait to be able to MOVE without struggling. I'll be able to roll over in bed without it being a big ordeal.

Anyway, I hope you all had a great weekend!! Don't forget that today is the last day to enter my giveaway!!

And um, P.S? I want these. Like, badly. Who wants to order a pregnant momma cupcakes?! :) Kidding...kind of.
