So I know sometimes a fun tradition to do with the birth of a baby is to start a baby pool predicting when the baby is going to make its presence into the world. I work with a bunch of men who like to bet on anything that they can, so I am just waiting for this to happen.
I am making the prediction right now. I am going early. I know, I know every first time mother thinks they are going early. I am not wishing to go early, although the further and further I get along in the pregnancy, the more EXCITED I am to meet this kid! I really would be more than happy to give birth to this baby on March 1st...appropriately Justin Bieber's birthday. My hunch comes from the fact that this kid is constantly moving. I have been feeling the baby since my 14th week. Everyone told me I was crazy, but now that I actually know what it feels like, I know that is what I was feeling! So essentially I have one heck of an active baby, which tells me this kid is not going to want to hang out the full 40 weeks. I truly think I am we are going to have our hands full with this one...oh dear sweet karma.
So here is another question, at what point do I start carrying a piddle pad around with me? Heaven forbid my water breaks in my husbands car- that truly will be devastating to him. Or the fact that Otis and I share a desk chair- I would not wish that on anyone. Am I going to look crazy carrying around one of those things when I still have a month before the baby is due? What did you ladies do? Or did you just say hey, its a part of life, it happens when it happens...deal with it :)
