I’m not the world’s most patient person. In fact, I’m probably one of the least patient people you could meet. When I ask someone to do something that means I want it done now. Not in 5 minutes, not in 5 hours, right now. So playing this waiting game with the baby is driving me nuts. We finally got everything ordered or bought. Packages are arriving everyday full of baby stuff. But, no baby. I now her due date isn’t for another 2 weeks but come on! She is my third baby, isn’t she supposed to come early? Odin was late but he was my first so that is normally. Gray was right on time, only missing his due date by 2 days. Baby girl should keep that pattern going and come early.
I feel like my patients is really bad because of how uncomfortable I am. Not only do I have a huge belly hanging off me but baby girls butt is pushing my ribs and lungs up where there is no room. On top of that I have a cold, so if all that lung crushing wasn’t horrible enough for my breathing, my stuffy nose is doing the job. The thing that makes me the most impatient though, is just wanting to hold her and see her. To have her here for real. To see her with her brothers and her family.
I keep thinking about what life is going to be like when she is here and I’m excited. Most people only think about sleepless nights and diaper changes but none of that ever bothered me. My boys always slept very well and diaper changes are just a fact of life for the first 3 years and people need to get over it. I just want our life with her to start already. For our family to be 100% complete. I know she’ll come when she ready but I’m ready for the waiting game to be over.
