So Jealous!

I read fairly regularly, and the woman who writes the blog was due on October 8th, just like me. It's been fun to read along as she chronicles her pregnancy experience, since we're both going through it at the same time. In fact, yesterday she wrote about how she was so done being pregnant, and was feeling big and blah. Exactly the same sentiments that I've been having about this pregnancy.

Then, this morning, I see via Twitter that her water broke. After being in labor for only 2 hours and 12 minutes (!), she gave birth to her little girl. And I became SO JEALOUS because my baby isn't here yet!

I know there's still two weeks until my due-date, and that he's better off staying in as long as possible, blah blah blah. But as any woman who has even been pregnant knows, when you reach this point, you just want to be done. Now. And nothing makes that feeling stronger than hearing about someone who was due at the same time, and already had her baby. Sigh. But i'm very happy for her, and wish the whole family well. You know. When I put the brakes on my jealousy, I find it in me to wish them good thoughts. :)

I also know that, while i'm wishing Joseph would hurry up and make his appearance, these next two weeks will indeed fly by, and he'll be here before I know it. Because of this, I decided that Dan and I needed to squeeze in a last date night, since who knows when we'll get another chance to do that.

My Dad came up to watch Stephanie for us while we went to see I Don't Know How She Does It, which starred Sarah Jessica Parker. It wasn't the greatest movie, but it was cute. I had read the book, which of course was much better. But it was a light-hearted movie, and a chance for Dan and I to get some time together sans children. (Except for the one that i'm carrying around all the time of course.) After the movie we went out for ice-cream and had grown-up conversation. What a novelty! It was a lot of fun, and I actually think that the fact that we don't do it often makes it that much more special.

Before I end this, I want to tell you all that I've started using Twitter recently. I joined a few years ago and never used it, but now I tweet about new blog posts, so if you're interested, follow me: @megRtaylor
