One day to go?

So, we are nearing the end of this pregnancy journey and I've got a mixed bag of emotions. I'm completely comfortable physically, as the baby has dropped significantly. However, I'm starting to get really anxious to meet the baby.

I believed it. . .I fell for the hype. . .

My doctor (who is AMAZING!!!!) Told me a few weeks ago that my body was progressing faster than usual, and that I could come at ANY MOMENT. That, of course, put me in overdrive. I got everything cleaned and organized thinking that at any hour, I could have our sweet baby in my arms. Here we are almost 3 weeks later, and I'm still pregnant. Don't get me wrong, I feel fabulous, and ultimately want the baby to come when he/she is ready. My due date isn't until Wednesday of this week, so I'm not trying to rush things one bit. I've always known that first time moms usually deliver late.

It's just that with all the excitement, I thought the baby would be here by now, and I'm having a harder time with that emotionally than I thought I would.

I know that all good things are worth waiting for, so I just need to be patient, and let things happen as naturally as possible.


  1. I know it doesn't help much, but I totally empathize. Ethan was 10 days late and those were the hardest and worst 10 days ever. They are so frustrating and difficult. And it doesn't help that everyone is asking you the same questions over and over. Hang in there, sweet baby O will be here sooner than later!

  2. You enjoy just sitting in total peace. Soak up the sound of, nothing. Charli is 2...she NEVER EVER stops going until bedtime. :) You'll be great and I plan to see you at the hospital. You know, one visit deserves another. Life will never be the same after this happens so take a minute to enjoy life as it is....and look forward to what it will be very shortly.
