OK Scratch Everything and Move It Back 3 Weeks!

Yes, it's April Fools Day. No I'm not making this post up, it's true.

After two weeks of alternating knots and butterflies in my stomach, we get to do it all over again. I emailed "Lucy" tonight to say how glad I was the baby was not born today and have her birthday on April Fools. This is the reply I got:

Thank you so much Bobby. I was actually thinking the same thing. I went to the doctor today and thought the info they gave me was a really cruel April fools joke. Well as it turns out my due date has been set back. According to the ultra sound tech dec 17th reading was wrong. I was not 5 1/2 months I was about 22-23 weeks meaning my new due date is April 22. That is the 40 week 9 month mark. But with all the pre contractions and pressure she may come a little bit early. I will continue to have weekly doctors appointments until delivery. My next appt is april 8th. I will advise you of status then but earlier if she decides to make a guest appearance. Talk to you soon. Have a good night.

Arrrrrgh! No no no no no! Just when the hourglass was finally running out, it's been turned over and started again. Ugh! We have been on edge...drama over leaving town for Mema's funeral...packing bags for the "come at any time now" call...preparations to send The Boys to the PetsHotel...jumping every time the phone rings...checking email every ten minutes...and now we get to start doing that all over again! What can I say? We'll wait some more. The contest is ruined. (No Michael, you don't win by default!) So all our emotion goes back in the bottle for a few more weeks, and I guess we start the baby pool contest all over. So same rules as before. Whoever comes closest without going over. All the hints you need are in Lucy's email. Place your bets...

Well, you don't have to be nasty about it! What do you mean I don't win? ;-)

I know you guys wanted her to come soon. Trust me...I know. The feeling is palpable. Despite the set back, enjoy every minute of your experience. Before you know it, this part of the experience will be gone in a flash and you will be tired, very tired, spit-up-on, got-so-much-laundry-to-do-with-no-time-to-do-it, overwhelmed, blogging-at-midnight parents.

Should her arrival date not coincide with April 3, my new date is April 17. I'll stick with 2:42 a.m.

April 20th at 2:34 pm.
This really sucks. But she will come when shes meant to come.

Ugh... I'm sorry to hear that you have to continue the wait. But this will all be worth it in the long run.

I am, however, thrilled to be able to participate in the guessing contest! My guess is April 12 @ 3:26 am.

Kathryn said...

Does my guess have to be really specific?
I'm going to say sometime the night of April 14th-15th.... just in time for us to see her birth being announced before we go on our vacation... cause she better not wait til after that or we might not know until May!!!
If I had to be specific... I guess I would say April 14th, 10pm(ish), that's as specific as I can get!

I am going to guess April 11th at 10:00 am. I am sure the wait will be worth it.

April 15th. Tax 9:47pm.

That will be your daugther's birthday!

Lurker April again! My new guess is April 15 at 7:42 p.m.

Waiting stinks, but you're almost there!

jilliebean said...

lmao... having to wait another 4 weeks! We told you.... waiting on a girl stinks sometimes, but welcome to life with a daughter!!! She's showing you how it's going to go from now on!

My daughter's birthday is April 18th, so I'm going to go with that date.

As far as time, I don't know. I'll just throw a number out there! 3:45 pm.

Who knows where it came from?

Kate said...

Sorry the wait is on again- but it is only fair- you did get to shave months off of the waiting. :)

Bryce's birthday is April 19th- so I am going with that day at 8:10 a.m.

Good luck to you and Lucy.

Ann-Elise said...

Hang in there!
Apologies to the birth mom and you, but I'm guessing late:

Carole said...

Bummer! The good news is that you have more time to finish up those last minute thngs and stock up on your sleep. :)

My guess is April 19th at 11:45 pm.

So we're ready for a new baby EDD pool, daddies! Hmmm. I'll go with April 21, the day my little one has her tonsillectomy (eek). 7 a.m., coinciding with my dd's time, too. Ain't the waitin' fun? -- susan
