So my birthday is this Sunday. I have a full fun planned weekend with all my family and friends. Events Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Mainly to keep myself busy and not think about a possible proposal. Eeeekkk!!!!
Initially I didn’t think he would do it on my bday because that’s just typical and too easy since he claims to want a surprise proposal. Plus I hinted at it a few weeks ago when he asked what I wanted for my bday. So I figured he wouldn’t do it then because it would seem like I told him too.
But now as it approaches & as it is getting closer I’m thinking it’s going to happen but then again thinking it isn’t because I don’t think he has had enough time to save the money for the ring.
Anticipation is killing me. I’m not sure if I’m just like this because I want it to happen. But I’m just focusing on all the signs. Like he was at the mall right across the street from the jewelry store where the e-ring is. He never really goes to this mall unless we are together. But again it could be him just being there to buy me a “gift”. I don’t really want to get my hopes up. But it’s hard. He asked what was the bday gift budget (amount we’re spending on each other). Since his bday is 6days after mine. So that’s another reason I figured it won’t happen this weekend. My mind is all over the place.
I guess if it doesn’t happen this weekend I will be a little bummed. But at least I get to have fun for my bday. I just don’t want to get a gift from him and have a look on my face like “what is this, it’s not a ring…so you could have kept this and spent that money on my e-ring”. That’s bad I know. I won’t say it but I sure will feel it. LOL
Stomach in knots!

Isn’t waiting the greatest?!! ::rolls eyes::
For real though, I hope you don’t let the stress of waiting ruin your birthday celebration!!

Try to remain calm and breathe. Keep reminding yourself that it’s your birthday and you should be happy for being alive another day. I hope this helps. If not have a few drinks and forget about everything else.

First- Happy Birthday!!!
It’s so hard (for me, at least) to not analyze everything and wonder about every opportunity for a proposal. I think if you’re in the final stages of waiting and know your guy is “working on” stuff then this is expected. Just don’t let it consume you, especially not on your birthday! I know you’ll be so busy and having such a great time that nothing will get you down this weekend. Enjoy your Birthday and check in with us on Monday!

HEEE HEEE HEEE HOOO! (labor breaths)
I’m trying to breathe! I will definitely not let it consume me or my weekend. I have so many things going on and I will have a lot of fun. So will definitely enjoy myself.
@7mom: I will definitely be having those drinks!
@PinkBubbleGum: I am so analyzing his every step, action, and word. I’m trying not too but I can’t help myself. Ugggghhhh!!! Thank you for the birthday wishes!
@MapleMoose: Please roll your eyes again for me! This waiting is torture!
He has also been getting really mushy and lovey dovey lately. I’m trying not to read too much into it. But he’s calling a lot, sending a lot of text messages. Just little stuff. It could just be a phase or just because my bday is approaching. WHYYYYY???????

Ohh I am having the same thoughts my birthday is thursday and normally he is driving me up the wall batty asking me what i want what he should do on and on (although generally i find out that is all a front because he throws the best birthdays!) but he hasn’t been doing that so I can’t help but think/hope based on that and a few other clues that it could be happening soon. of course…i have been wrong on this matter before! lol

My birthday was last week and I thought there was a possiblity that it could happen, but it didn’t. The waiting and anticipating is tough! I keep telling myself that it will happen when it is supposed to happen…not always helpful but I tell myself that anyway.

Hey! Happy birthday!
I know how you feel about analyzing everything… We’re getting engaged by the end of this year (2 days!!! Ah!!!!) and we had a big trip to Disney World planned (we got back Dec. 17th). My dream proposal would happen there. He even told me that it wasn’t going to happen there because he wanted COMPLETE control of the proposal. Of course, I took this as he was just wanting to throw me off therefore gaining the “control” back. Haha! Twisted mind I have, eh? Plus, everyone thought he was going to so they fueled that idea into my head as well… Well, it finally hit me when we were there that he wasn’t going to do it and I got upset. I had to get over it because I wanted to enjoy my vacation.
Also, since I know we’re getting engaged within the next few days, I started analyzing everything again. We just can’t help it! Well, then he started doing things to make me think he was going to propose just to teach me a lesson. He told me, “Don’t think about it, just wait for it and enjoy it when it happens” (well, no duh, sweetie! haha.) I have to admit, he was right… *Dang!* I have stopped, well… lessened my analyzing and it is MUCH better!
That is what I recommend. Just worry about enjoying your birthday because the disappointment isn’t worth it… I know… easier said than done!
