Still no baby...

I am officially "late"... the hours are ticking by. Not really, but it sure does seem like it sometimes. Zach and I went shopping on Saturday, my official "due date". I just knew that he wasn't coming, so I had to have some meaningless tangible item to fill the void. :) Shopping for clothing really isn't appealing for me right now. The hardest thing about shopping while you are 40wks pregnant is that you know you shouldn't buy maternity clothes because it will be over soon, but at the same time, I couldn't remember what size I would normally buy if I didn't look like I swallowed a huge basketball. I found a few cute dresses and I had to have Zach hold them up to my back to see if they would be long enough once I wasn't carrying the little one anymore. I had some success... Zach calls the dresses "motivators". Isn't he so sensitive... not!
So, I'm not getting too down on myself because my mom was always 2 weeks late with me and my brothers. In fact, the average length of pregnancy for a first time mom is 41 weeks, 1 day. I'm sure that is changing now-a-days with the increase in scheduled inductions or c-sections. There really is no exact science I guess (if you aren't planning an induction), which makes me feel a little bit better. I still feel great. We are just excited to meet the little guy. Not to mention, our families are going crazy back in Idaho. Every time Zach or I call we just disappoint. :)

Finally! You know, your friends back in Washington are getting antsy too. I actually had a dream about you having "him" the other night and I woke up saying, "I can't deliver a baby!" and got scared. Not sure why you were the person in the dream, but it must just be because I have been thinking any day now Jordanne and Zach are going to be parents...crazy!
