Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Today is My "Due" Date {Yarn Along}

Today is My "Due" Date {Yarn Along}

April 30, 2014=My "due" date. For those wondering, Lil' J. is still inside me, and unless something happens today, I will NOT deliver on my "due" date. Honestly, I am fine with this. When I was pregnant with Charis, I was giving her {failed} eviction notices at least a week before my due date with her and still went 8 days past my "due" date. With this pregnancy, I have expected from the beginning that I would deliver about a week "late", which I'm secretly fine with because I'm hoping to do a few more things before Justin is born. I'm hoping next Tuesday or Wednesday, he'll be born, but God has the date of Justin's birth planned.

As much as I want to go to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this weekend, I do think it wise that I stay closer to home. We'll see... If I don't go, it will be the first time in 4 years that I have not gone.

Until my gymnast is born, I have been knitting baby clothes and cleaning {last night, I cleaned the kitchen and bathroom floors}. Today, I hope to take 4+ bags to the thrift store, then start to stack the boxes I've packed by the door to be taken down to our storage area in the basement. Charis and I have had many fun times of going to the park; sadly, it's expected to rain all week through Thursday. I had hoped to take her on some walks, but it's a cold rain. I might go to IKEA and walk there.

Knitting the WHW Plain Wrap.

What are you knitting or reading?
Join me at Ginny's Yarn Along.


  1. I was a week early for each child and was glad of it! Good luck with today :) The rain has been nutty here as well. Love your knit and the pop of white that is striping!

  2. Praying for you and a safe and healthy delivery, Sarah! How exciting. You sound like you're nesting... If I lived back east, I would join you for a walk at IKEA as I haven't been there in ages and have several items I need to price. :)

  3. I was two weeks early with each child, but I wound up with preeclampsia with each one and they had to be induced...Praying for safe and healthy delivery!

  4. You must be so excited, the time is so close. Congratulations mama! Maybe some spicy food and a little dip in a hot tub will help :-)

  5. A new baby, what a delightful gift. Plenty of walking and a warm bath would be my suggestion. Congratulations.

  6. Hope you'll have it easy, whenever it decides to pop into this world :)
    (whisper: if you do want to hurry things along, there's always the Italian way...)

  7. My youngest was a week late. CONGRATS!!! I hope all goes well and don't be cleaning too much lol relax because trust me this time next week you won't have time too anymore. lol :)

  8. I was early with all my kids but I had a friend who went almost 3 weeks late.
