It's My Due Date and I'll Cook If I Want To

Today is my official due date. And I have had absolutely no signs of labor. Baby must be pretty comfortable in there. No contractions, no water breaking, nothing. It's also my third day of maternity leave and I'm starting to go out of my mind with boredom. The first two days weren't so bad. I had work to do from home, I had lunch with the husband, got a pedicure with the sister. But then, the third day came and I didn't have anything to do.

It feels really strange to not get up and go to work. I'm a worker, I've always worked. Ever since I was 16 and a birthday hostess for Chuck e Cheese, I've worked. There have been a few stretches of time where I didn't have a job, like my first year of law school, but I've worked pretty consistently since high school. I feel guilty watching Captain America get up and get dressed for the office while I'm still in pajamas. Although I am still getting up before he does. Damn prego belly does not help the sleeping-in so much.

My big outing of the day was the grocery store. Woo hoo, so exciting! I went to stock up on food before the baby comes. I ended up making three lasagnas, two to freeze and one for tonight. I have never frozen a lasagna so I hope it comes out ok or else I just wasted a lot of time and money. I even had to go to the store twice because I forgot certain key ingredients.

I also read a book today and watched a ton of baby shows. Lucky for me there was a "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" marathon on today. Tomorrow I think my outing will be buying new dog beds. Sigh, this baby better come soon before I die of boredom.

  1. Soon it will be soon. And frozen lasagna tastes MOST EXCELLENT! I have frozen many in the past it was a good idea.
