At the risk of alienating everyone, I’d like to remind you all of the nothing song. Did you sing it as kids? It’s almost as annoying as ‘the song that never ends.’
“Nothing nothing nothing nothing,
we sing absolutely nothing,
nothing, nothing, all day long,
listen to our nothing song.
could be better –
but it’s gonna be worse.
Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing…”
And so on, and so forth.
It’s 5.50am on Friday here. I’ve not slept much but it’s certainly NOT because I have contractions keeping me awake. Mostly, I think, it’s because I have that stupid song stuck in my head, reminding me constantly of the status of my supposedly impending labour.
Midwife appt this afternoon. Hopefully the nothingness about which I’m singing is all related to my blood pressure – which, of course, will be low and result in nothing!
Meanwhile, why did I listen to all those people who thought I’d go early? Waiting for labour is something like purgatory!
