Will Baby C Ever Come?

17 Jan

Good morning and happy Tuesday to you! 

Oh and a special shout out to my all time favorite celebrity ever, Betty White!  She turns 90 years old today and she is still going strong!  She rocks!  I recorded her birthday special that was on NBC last night and can’t wait to watch it today once Keith leaves for work.

Over the years, when Keith and I talked about the celebrity we would most want to meet or the one celebrity who would leave us speechless, I always picked Betty White.  It’ will probably come as no surprise that I’ve watched my complete DVD collection of the Golden Girls (owned since 2003) too many times to count and on any given day you can find me watching reruns on the Hallmark channel.  Weird obsession I know, but I swear the Golden Girls is the best television show ever created, I laugh constantly!

So with that being said, I got really excited about the fact Baby Cameryn could be born on Betty’s birthday!  When I told Keith, he didn’t respond to me and just walked out of the room.  I have a sneaking suspicion he doesn’t care if the baby is born on Betty’s birthday or not!

Not only would today be the perfect day to have her because of Betty White, but also because my doctor is on duty delivering babies until 7am tomorrow morning, I too was born on a Tuesday and there are 22 more days until her official due date (my lucky and most favorite number is 22).  So, they way I see it, all signs point to Baby C’s arrival today!

*I must note, I would love Baby C to cook longer but if my doctor is right and there is a good chance she will be here before Friday, I think today is a lovely day!*

Ever since my appointment last Friday, I’ve been on baby watch.  I think I started having a few contractions last night while I was falling asleep but when I woke up this morning, they had all gone away.  My stomach would get pretty tight with an almost crampy sensation that wouldn’t last long before it was over.  This happened multiple times and eventually I got tired of waiting for them to come so I just fell asleep.  I really wanted to wake up in full blown labor!

I’m finding myself super antsy lately and the unknowingness of labor is driving me nuts!  It is so hard to think the baby could be here today or I could still have another 3-4 weeks to go!  I’m excited for my appointment on Friday to see what changes my body has made in the past week if Cameryn isn’t here by then.  I’m such a planner so waiting around doesn’t come easy to me.  It also doesn’t help when the doctor basically convinces you your baby is about to be born!


I must admit, against my doctor’s suggest I did a little working out yesterday (if you can even call what I did working out).  My body was feeling so tight and like it really just needed to move.  I took the dog on a very short and slow walk around the block around noon, followed by an easy 8 1/2 minutes (2 songs on Pandora, I didn’t want to over do it) on the elliptical at our house.  Moving felt amazing!  I can’t wait to be able to workout again soon!  Maybe by Friday’s appointment the doctor will let me work out again since I am full term tomorrow.  When Keith got home, we decided to take the dog out for another slow paced walked.  It felt great  (besides being cold) and I think my leg muscles and hips were thanking me.  I also credit the little bit of moving I did yesterday to sleeping so well last night.  I only woke up once at 2am and that is pretty unheard of for me since I am usually up 5-6 times running to the bathroom.


Onto other things, eats have been healthy.  Lots of chicken breast and salads for dinner, breakfast sandwiches made on Ezekiel English muffins for breakfast, apples and bars as snacks and Greek yogurt mixture for lunch.  I have been having my fair share of chocolate too.  Something about being home with a bag of chocolate just tempts me.  I’m all for it though since I’m keeping all my other eats healthy and protein packed.

Recycled pictures:




That’s it from me!  My life is so boring right now, I don’t have too much to post on.  I’ll try and get that workout of the week posted later today or Thursday for you all!

Make it a great Tuesday!!!

    haha- Betty White is pretty awesome 🙂 I’m sure its irritating to be told the baby could arrive any minute…and then waiting and waiting! Kay really wanted to cook forever, so we never heard those words (could arrive any minute ;)).

      It is funny because I was super content with waiting until February to start getting excited for her arrival but since the doctor said those magic words, my whole outlook has changed. I’m constantly thinking about baby 24/7 and it is so hard not being overly excited and antsy!

    I love Betty White & the Golden Girls too! I actually haven’t watched an episode in a while now tho!

    I can only imagine how frustrating it is when your doctor tells you that you’re baby will be here any day, and then you just keep waiting and waiting! Well she will be here soon so you don’t have to worry! 🙂

      I know she will be here soon! I think my bank account (and husband) will be happy when she arrives so I quit buying baby items online! It is the only thing keeping me distracted and is entertaining me!

    I think it’s pretty darn cute that you love BW so much — she is one heck of a woman!

    My contractions started the same way you’re describing but were infrequent and when I woke up they went away, but ultimately they *were* the real thing! Here’s hoping!

      I haven’t had anymore today that I’ve distinctly have felt, but then again I’ve been up and moving around the house most of the day. Maybe I’ll take an afternoon nap and see if laying still makes them easier to feel.

    I’m very superstitious with numbers too so here’s to hoping today is the day!! And love love Betty White too…my fav show is the Golden Girls also and I was actually watching them last night…they can always make me laugh and nothing is more priceless than the looks Dorothy makes!

    My labor with my youngest started the same way! I was just crampy and then later in the day…WHAM!

    I can’t believe you are still pregnant! I don’t know why but I thought for sure you would have had her by the time I got back to cali! I bet you will have her before the end of the week for sure. Still somehow, I can’t believe how fast everyone’s pregnancies are going! Time goes by so fast after the never ending first trimester. I am so happy you and baby C are doing great!!! I can’t wait to see pics after she makes her arrival!!
