Today Cupcake is officially overdue. Her due date was yesterday 22nd June and it came and went without so much of a twinge. Thankfully I’m no stranger to overdue babies as Munchkin went 12 days over and I had to be induced. However, doesn’t seem to make it easier when every morning you wake up and still nothing has happened.
One of the most irritating things about the whole process is that people start emailing, texting and even facebooking the question “Any news yet??”
To which my natural response is tempting to be “what the f do you think?” This question is inevitably from the very people who would be first in line to inform if something was happening.
I have told my husband to respond on my behalf ” oh yes, we had it a week ago, didn’t we tell you??” but perhaps that may be seen as rude.
The other part of the waiting game is hospital appointments for checks for progress. So far today I have now sat for 1hr 45 mins waiting for my appointment and there is still a big queue ahead of me.
Come on cupcake!!!!
note added later: I had to wait 5 hours in the end at my appointment!!!!
