So yes, my due date was yesterday. And no, I haven't had the baby yet. Since Kathryn was two weeks early (a whole other story), I never experienced this waiting game, and let me tell you, it's awful! I don't know why I thought I'd be different than anybody else and deserved to have the baby a little early, but for some reason, I was convinced he'd be here before now (maybe it was because of all those people who kept telling me I'd "never make it" all the way, because I was way too big, etc.). But it turns out I'm not as special as I thought, and have now joined the ranks of those who have gone past their due dates. The funny thing is, although there are days (most days) that I of course want him to be here, there are other times that I think, "Just one more day would be ok." I've been really trying to relish each additional day with Kathryn, take the time to get more things done (I've been a nesting cleaning machine!), etc. But I must admit that I am often not a fun person to be around, and am quite lacking in the patience department these days. Pray for my dear sweet husband, and daughter, and anyone else who happens to get on my nerves at any given time! I have a doctor's appointment on Monday morning, so hopefully I'll have some info or news on what our plans will be over the next week (or two?). The good thing is, all this will be over in less than two weeks, so it's not gonna last forever (even though it feels like it might sometimes!). Please pray for us as we are at the end, especially for a healthy baby, and a good transition into being a family of 4! (Whoa! Are we really ready for this?!?) And finally, because every woman who makes it to the end of their pregnancy realizes she's just as beautiful as can be (can you detect my sarcasm?), here are a couple of pictures taken today, at 40 weeks and 1 day pregnant. Can you say hot momma? :)
P.S. Please excuse the potential "weirdness" of this post, as I am obviously not thinking very clearly these days!
