Waiting for a baby is like waiting for a pot of water to boil. You just wait and wait and wait... Wade coming 10 days early ruined me into thinking that I will have all of my babies early from here on OUT! Since then, I automatically moved this babies "due date" up 10 days and started counting from there. . .. All through this pregnancy I have thought, "this baby is going to come early!"
Clearly... I don't have much by way of "mother's intuition". Peter has known that since I was pregnant with Abby, because I SWORE she was a boy and said I knew by, "mother's intuition". When we found out "he" was going to be a "she" I was forever labeled as a mother with NO intuition and I have proven that fact, once again.. boldly, and nobly... (I should REALLY just learn to not listen to myself)
This baby is coming on her own timetable and the only thing that has REALLY gotten my goat this week has been that I have had a drop dead evil cold for the past 7 days... I mean, I didn't go to church last week because of this cold and it just got worse and worse and worse... When I would lay down to go to sleep, my lungs would start to rattle, and I would have a complete coughing spasm and cough until my head started to hurt and I had nothing left to cough. I was feeling despair in a whole new way. No sleep + No Baby= Crazy Emotional Frustrated Crying.
I kept thinking I would "get better" and finally decided that wasn't going to happen and went to the Dr. today. She gave me an antibiotic and I almost kissed her. I am happy to announce that thanks to my antibiotics, I might actually get some sleep tonight... Three cheers for getting SOME sleep. I have a whole new outlook on being OVERDUE! ;) I think I might actually make it now!!! Regardless, thanks for "checking" up on us. Good news will be here soon enough.
