Beginning to feel like a watched pot that never boils...

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

Oh - I fixed it so anyone can leave comments. Sorry, I'm new to having a blog. Feel free to leave us comments now!!

Took a 38 week pic of the belly this week... thare she blows!

Technically, she's still got 3 weeks to make her appearance, but I've only got about an ounce of patience left. :-) No, no, it's not really that bad. Though it is much harder to not think about it all the time. The first 2 weeks of maternity leave were nice, quiet, calm, and relaxing. I got so much cleaning done, I got all the clothes washed, the room set up. I cleaned the kitchen every day, made dinner at night, and did it all again the next day.

Slowly as time goes by it's harder to keep up with the chores. I'm more tired than I was even a week ago. My body is just done.

But, there are definitely times when I know I will miss being pregnant. I will miss when her kicks and punches aren't our little secret anymore. I will miss the conversations I have with her when it's 3 am and I can't sleep. I'll miss saying, "Sorry, Baby!" when I accidentally bump my belly on the counter or with the refrigerator door...

Listening to my affirmations last night, one jumped out at me. My job right now is to just relax. I need to really work on that. Just relax. Take it one hour at a time. Don't rush this. Don't feel pressured to do anything that my body and my baby isn't ready to do. She will come when the time is right for her to be born.
