Tomorrow would have been my EDD

Well tomorrow would have been my due date :( I am trying to remain positive and thankful for all I have, but it's SO hard not to think about what "should" have been. I've also been tearing up randomly throughout the past two days...so I'm not sure what tomorrow will be like.

I had plans to do dinner and shopping with a friend tomorrow because DH has class all evening. However, she cancelled on me last night. I'm a little irritated because she knew I wanted to do something fun that day and since she waited until last minute, no one's free tomorrow. And it's not really a good reason. Just, she'd rather do a weekend night instead of a weeknight. I'm a little hurt.

I may treat myself to a massage tomorrow. It would be a nice relaxing thing to look forward to :)

How did you ladies handle your due dates?

You should treat yourself! I am sorry about your friend. If I were near I would love to go out with you ( I happen to prefer week nights anyways ;).

For me, my due date came and went pretty uneventfully. For whatever reason, I associate June 9th with Avery, the day I had him... And January 3rd with the baby I just lost because I think of it more of a birthday. I have not hit the year mark yet, but I plan on either making a donation in his name, or some sort of act of kindness or service project in his name. I really want to be happy and joyful, and keep thing positive. I think that will make me feel better honoring their little lives.

I haven't hit my EDD yet. I think treating yourself would be a nice idea.

Im so sorry for your loss.  The due date is always really tough and Im sorry that your friend bailed on you.  Its always really hard when people arent there when you need them.  I agree that you should treat yourself!! That will help you get through the day and keep your mind off of things a bit.

I hoope the day isnt too terrible and we are here if you need support!

 I am not sure how I am going to handle my dd... Its the same day my son was stillborn... On the 21st. We are going to put flowers on his grave and release some balloons... Other then that I am going to be hiding in my house most likely.

*hugs*  I'm sorry.  That was really douchey of your friend.  A massage sounds like a good treat.

Thanks for the support ladies :) Things worked out after all! Apparently, my friend was saying she couldn't do a couples night (her bf was busy). She ended up coming over and we ate pizza, drank wine, and chatted. A very enjoyable evening!

I wasn't sad at all today. Work was crazy and then I had things to do all evening. I wasn't nearly the wreck I thought I'd be! Hopefully this is another step in the healing process.
