Today is my due date Im cleaning house ... what would you be doing?

My first son was 2 days late and my 2nd was 1 day early so it could be any time now ... as much as I hoped he would be here by now its nice to be finishing up laundry and dishes so Im at least not leaving any dirty for grandma when she comes to watch the boys ..
If it were your due date what would you be doing?

  • with my first I was planning on going to a concert.... but the baby changed that plan.
    with my second I was cleaning and playing with the first
    with the third I was shopping.... trying to get all the last min. groceries, play clothes, etc so hubby would be fine with the first two while I was at the hospital with the new one.

    do what ever you want.... eat what every you want.... see a moive.... it is ALLL ABOUT TO CHANGE.

  • I went out to breakfast, then walked around the park for 2 hours, then scubbed my tub until it shinned, ate some scalini's eggplant parmesean, and then went to bed. Went into labor the next day.

  • I clean clean clean. Don't want anyone seeing a dirty house when they come to visit the baby, I am weird like that and don't want a lot to do after baby is born, it kills me to have other people clean my house. Plus it helps pass time and being physical is good to bring on labor.

  • I would be cleaning to. I'm a month away and that is all I have the desire to do is clean, sew, and take on a million projects that I know I would not finish if I gave in and started them.
