Waiting Game…

Baby Bump!

Baby Bump!

Almost one week ago I officially hit full-term. I was fully convinced that, because my daughter made her arrival shortly after hitting 37 weeks, this little guy would follow in her footsteps. Nope, that’s not the case at all. Tomorrow I’ll be 38 weeks and I am getting antsy to get this party started!!

While I’m so-over-the-top ready to have him, each day past that 37 week mark has brought with it a little bit of panic…. Dare I say, TERROR. I’m going to have a baby. I’M GOING TO HAVE A BABY!!!! I am seriously having a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that this is really happening. I know I must be crazy to have just past the finish line of an 18 year journey with my daughter, only to start up again. As my daughter keeps telling me, “Just think mom, you get to do back-to-school nights and parent teacher meetings all over again….” Yeah, not to forget, terrible twos, terrible teens and getting this new little man to eat his veggies. Instead of hitting my 40’s in search of travel deals, I’ve traded it all in for Boy Scouts and soccer.

I’m ready. I’m terrified. I’m ready…
I’m thrilled. I’m petrified. I’m thrilled….
Every time I have a Braxton hick, that has even the tiniest bit of pain associated with it, I’m giddy with excitement and anticipation. It doesn’t even feel like I’m starting a new chapter in life… it feels more like I’m starting a new book; a sequel. Fortunately for me, I am a book lover…
