a couple of my family fortune tellers
There it was in teal highlighting on the shared online google family calendar- Baby will come. Lord knows it will happen if it's on the calendar right? It was my husband's attempt at manifesting. He put it up over two weeks ago. The 22nd of September was the first day when work was quiet, a good day to have a baby according to his very busy schedule.
I decide to go with it even though my due date is still 11 days away, I'm more than ready to have a baby. He's been on a roll lately with inviting good things to come into his life, and then claiming them whole heartedly.
I noticed his facebook page had been updated:
"Jorge is on high alert...we can't wait to meet our new baby!"
This, of course, started a flurry of return wall-to-wall comments and actual phone calls.
Have I mentioned I'm not even in labor? There has been not one contraction all day.
He came home from work last night and jokingly said, "Hmm...Is the baby here yet, is she cute?"
I have been walking around 3 centimeters dilated for weeks now. High alert passed for me somewhere around last Monday, I've moved to quiet desperation.
I decided to ask a very small child for a prediction as I've found in the past they can serve as excellent magic 8 balls. Lucy, at the age of almost three is the perfect candidate.
"Lucy, do you think we are having our baby this week?" I inquire.
"Nope." She says oh so casually.
"Do you think we are having our baby NEXT week?" I say in my best shocked tone.
"Yep." She replies nodding her head.
So I'm moving on with my family fortune tellers. The phone rang late last night. It was a dear friend who is due with her baby on the exact same day. She was calling to ask me if I thought she could be in labor. I think the google calendar was for her.
Calling all Supersisters- Care to make a prediction in the comments? Or at least tell me what you did to pass the time at the end of pregnancy when you feel like a whale?
