"D" Day... is the big day -- the DUE DATE -- I've been carrying this precious bundle for 40 weeks!!!!!! The time has gone by so quickly...far faster than I ever expected. When we found out we were expecting, this day seemed SOOOOO far away...& yet now, already, it's here!
Of course, she's not here yet...but I'm hoping she will decide to come SOON!!!! ;-) And, thankfully, there's an end in site. If she doesn't decide to come on her own between now & next Wednesday, she will arrive sometime (hopefully) on thursday, via induction. Everything is crossed off the "to do list" except for a few last minute now we just get to wait...& wait...which is definitely the hardest part!
I'm feeling anxious, excited, impatient & so many other emotions right now, I can't even begin to describe it. I'm anxious to get through labor, excited to see her, impatient to hold her...and YIKES...the realization that I'm actually going to be a mommy!!! What an enormous responsibility I will soon have for the REST OF MY LIFE!!!!! It's scary, but I am so grateful for her already & know that with God's help & grace, it will all be fine. I am truly blessed...and can't wait to meet this little gal!!!
