Not to compare, but...

It's not that I mind going past my due date. I always do. It just never seems that I find others that go past their due date as well, so mentally it can be wearing.

In fact, most people are shocked that I'd be "allowed" to go past 40 weeks, which is frustrating since no pregnancy is overdue until you reach 42 weeks. Please, oh please people, educate yourselves!!!!

Ahhh, now I've got that out of my system, I just read that Josh and Anna Duggar had their baby just two days ago on Oct. 8 and their birth story will be on TLC this Tuesday. They had what seems to have been a sweet homebirth so I look forward to watching their story for a bit of last minute encouragement.

Of course, she had her baby ten days before her due date. Is it okay to be a little jealous???

I carried Joshua to 42 weeks... and it felt like forever! Hang in there! I'm praying for you!

I carried Eden to 42 weeks and I talked today with two girls my age that were both 4 weeks late for their own births. Those were different times almost 30 years ago, huh?

Not to worry, Whitaker will be born on his birthday....whenever that is. :-) Love you.

Imani was a week "late" and Nadia was 10 days "late", so you aren't alone! Enjoy some moments with Simon and the kids while you can! :)

Oh yes, I'll be watching Anna and Josh Duggar; thanks for the reminder!
God has always known what Whitaker's birthday with be. Apparently God likes surprises just as much as we do! :) Praying for joy in the waiting!
Love you!
