Baby Laura is “late” by 4 days. I’m not concerned about it – just very anxious, like most 1st time mothers would be. If only I knew, I could have saved 4 days holidays to take at the end of the maternity leave in 2011, instead of being at home just being anxious. Oh well.
The other thing – really minor, I’m not really into this, although I talk about it a lot – is that if she doesn’t come tomorrow she won’t be a baby Taurus anymore. If she is born on the 22nd May, like untie Lelei preticted, she will be a baby Gemini, just in the border with Taurus, and one month apart from mommy. Kinda cute. Mommy is also a border baby – Gemini / Cancer. As I said, it doesn’t really matters – signs are good if you want touse them to justify a certain behaviour/attitude.
Maybe Laura is waiting granny to come all the way from Romania to meet her and since granny is only arriving on the 23rd, it makes sense that she is waiting a little bit. We just hope that Granny & Baby won’t “land” at the same time, as we need to pick her up at the airport.
But this is not what this post is all about. I’ve been reading more about labour and signs of labour. The more I read the more confused I get, simply because I have no idea of my simptoms and what to expect. Since everybody says that when the time comes I WILL KNOW, I’m trying to think less and feel more. Contractions – although slightly stronger and more frequent – are still totally manageable. And they are mostly near my stomach, as opposed to near the pelvis (these, when they happen, are quite annoying). Back pain/contraction exists but are not that often and I normally only notice them when I walk too much or when I very tired, which is the confusing bit, because I think I had this before getting pregnant.
I’ll be able to ask all my questions to the midwife tomorrow as I will be at the hospital for the 41st week appointment.
As for now, all I can do is enjoy my basketball shaped belly – it’s so round and low that looks like a fake belly – and have fun seeing Laura moving inside (and she still does it a lot, despite the lack of space).
