May 2013 Moms

You know it's close when...

... the expiration date on the milk in your fridge is later than the EDD of your baby. 

For those of you who haven't had your babies yet, what little things have made you realize just how close it is getting?

    I've been having stronger contractions than before. Also, having the nursery finished and everything ready, I'm just kind of sitting here waiting for it to happen.

    We actually bought diapers at Sam's Club on Friday. That was kind of like uhhhh holy crap. Enough for me to actually start cleaning the nursery and getting stuff out of the attic today.

    Suddenly started paying attention to what I'm eating. Trying to avoid foods that stick, like lots of cheese, etc.

    Ugh is right! Went to grocery store today and everyone was asking how close I am. Got some sympathetic looks when I said yesterday... Hope it won't be too much longer!
  • ALL THE MOTHER'S DAY COMMERCIALS. I never paid attention to them before now, but my EDD is 5/12/13, Mother's Day, and I cant tell you how "in my face" all the advertising feels. I feel like it's the universe's way of saying "FYI, your due date is coming!!!" Im so anxious and feeling very impatient about the whole thing...I sincerely hope Im a mom by Mother's Day, I am ready to be DONE with pregnancy.

    Totally this! And paying attention to foods that don't stick! Bean and cheese burritos should be cut off from now on!

  • Every time I scan my monthly subway pass and the screen tells me it expires on May 31 (my EDD) it makes me smile - both because the baby will hopefully be here by then and because I won't have to pay for a monthly pass after that until October! :)

    I just bought diapers and wipes for the first time today and that helped it hit home as well!

    I didn't even think of this!  My dinner plans for tomorrow were for a Mexican dish with lots of pepper jack cheese.  Maybe not the best idea I've ever had.

    Dumb question -- What do you ladies mean by foods that "stick"?

    I agree! Buying diapers and wipes made it seem so close to me. Time to get stuff out of storage.

    Food like cheese tends to stick in your digestive track and make you constipated.  Food like beans tend to not stick, i.e., give you diarrhea. Aren't you glad you asked?  If you're about to have a baby, I don't think either of those options are great.  Although, personally my body seems to alternate from one to the other these last few weeks, so not sure how much it matters what I eat.
