The Waiting Game

It is funny that this whole pregnancy I have been so worried about this baby coming early and now that it is safe for her to come......we wait.
Many people's delivery date guesses have come and gone, today was the day that Christopher had guessed, and while the day is not over yet, it looks unlikely that today is it.

I went to the Dr. yesterday and was rewarded with the tiny progress of 1 cm. Which really means nothing, since some women are at certain stages for weeks but you never know. We are still hoping that she decides to make her debut this week or at least before thanksgiving.

But again.......we wait.

Though many of my friends are predicting that she is holding out for the full 40 weeks. I really hope not.
It is hard feeling this out of control, maybe I just need to plan a big day out with lots of important things to get done, isn't that one way to assure that plans get ruined? ;)
Anyway, I am feeling pretty good and will try to get some things done today, Ristow's birthday is in 15 days and I still have some work to do for that. Now, he has decided that he wants a surprise party even though he has been planning his birthday for months. Silly kid!
I promise to keep everyone updated.

Hey, Sweetpea. I came across the very poignant words of a mom I love and respect immensely today and I thought I'd pass them along to you. Written to me in the waning months of my pregnancy, she said, "What a blessing to get to be a vessel for creation."

What a wise, perceptive lady, huh? :) If you don't remember writing that to me, it's not a big deal, but knowing how difficult your pregnancy has been, I thought I'd pass those very meaningful words back to you.

We're all so proud of the way you've powered through these very long eight months. Your beautiful little girl is so very lucky to have you for her mother, a truth she'll learn very soon, 'cause I'm sure she'll be with us before you know it!

In the meantime, take it easy, enjoy your last days as a mother-of-one and know that you are loved beyond measure!

With all my love and admiration,
