I’m 38 weeks pregnant tomorrow and trying with allll my might not to get too antsy for baby girl to arrive. We had some false labor signs on Friday night that got me a little too excited, I think, because today it feels like she’ll never come. I keep trying to tell myself that even if I go two weeks overdue, that’s still only 29 more days until we meet our sweet babe.
In an effort to circumvent these feelings, one of our midwives suggested we plan a special date night for the evening of our due date.
Obviously, that date has become so important to us, but since very few babies come on the actual estimated day, it can be a bit of a let down when you wake up the morning of your due date and still have a baby in your belly. She says that having a date to look forward to makes it a little bit easier, and I think it’s a great idea.
I’ve been wracking my brain this weekend trying to find something great for us to do. I want it to be more special than going out to dinner, since we do that all the time and I really think it would be nice to have something special to look forward to. But at the same time, I don’t want to commit to anything that requires buying tickets ahead of time, just in case the baby comes early.
You all are fabulous and creative… any ideas? My due date is on a week day, so this should probably be an evening/night time date. But other than that, we’re up for anything!
