Come Out Already!

So most of you know that I am pregnant. This has been quite a long journey full of happy moments and not so good moments. My due date was Friday April 6th and it is currently Sunday April 8th and in less than an hour it will be Monday April 9th.

I am clearly a few days past my due date and when I tell you I am beyond ready to have this baby I mean it. I am over 40 weeks pregnant and I am just fat and heavy. It is extremely tiring carrying around all this baby weight. And of course my unborn daughter doesn’t care. She is just comfortably, although I don’t see how when it’s obviously not that much room in there, and patiently taking her time to enter this world. I have been having Braxton Hicks contractions (false contractions) for weeks now but they have not been progressing into true labor. Which obviously sucks for me!

I have literally been doing everything to get this baby out of me such as exercising (walking, climbing stairs, doing squats and yoga), eating spicy foods, eating pineapples, and I even been doing nipple stimulation. Research suggests that nipple stimulation is one of the best ways to naturally induce labor at home. But to no avail, nothing and I mean absolutely nothing has been working. I genuinely hope that she hurries up and come on her own because if she is not here by Wednesday April 11th (which is actually my 30th birthday) then my doctor has me scheduled to get induced on Thursday April 12th at 7am. I am dreading getting induced because I actually had planned to have this baby natural without using any type of pain medication. So I am praying that she just stops being stubborn and come out on her own before Thursday.

All in all, this baby has got to come out already! I am slowly losing my patience with having to wait to meet her and hold her. I have never wanted to experience pain so bad. I am beyond ready to experience what it feels like to go through labor and delivery and just have this baby already. She has officially received her eviction notice and she has got to go asap!

Day 2 – Where you would like to be in 10 years

In 10 years I will be 37 and just looking at those numbers has my head spinning right now. For starters I would love to have my PhD in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) seeing as though I’m working towards my Masters in ABA as we speak (April 2016 needs to get here sooner than later)! I would love to have an Autism Center to serve those families in need in my neighborhood and the surrounding areas.

I would love, love, love for my handcrafted jewelry line Young Beautiful Fly to expand to selling clothing and shoes as well. By the way, I will be launching my website very soon and I will share the link to it! This is something that I am looking forward to for this year.

Within the next 10 years I hope and pray that I have gotten married and had children. Two things that I have always wanted. If you would have asked me 10 years ago (I would have been 17) where I would be now, this would have already happened for me, but things don’t always go according to plan.

Another major thing that I see happening in 10 years is that I WILL publish the book that I have been working on for the past year or so. I have been on and off, on and off again with writing this book. I know that writing a great novel does not happen overnight, but I can admit that I should probably be further along than what I am.

I really, really want to have traveled the world or most of it within the next 10 years. I have never been outside of the U.S. and that is something that I long to do.
