Waiting for Gracie

Okay, I'm starting to be an uncomfortable pregnant woman now. I am no longer in awe of the wondrous task my body has undertaken in creating the miracle of life, blah, blah, blah…

I just want my body back to myself. I want to make it through the day without having to pee every hour on the hour. I want to find a comfortable position to sleep in. I want to be able to walk up the two flights of stairs in my townhouse without getting winded. And I want to be able to bend over and pick something up without making old lady noises.

But mostly, I want to SEE this baby. I'm just dying to see what this little girl looks like. I want to kiss her little head, and count her teeny fingers and toes, and cuddle her and sing to her and just have her HERE.

Only six more weeks to go, only six more weeks to go…

It will go faster than you can even imagine (although it may not seem that way). I have 3 DD's and I miss the pregnancy part so much (yes I'm neurotic). Good luck in the coming weeks.

The last few weeks seem to take forever, but before you know it you'll be writhing in agony as the contractions start! There's something to look forward to, eh? Oh, but the labour is so worth it! I know they say you forget the pain of childbirth after you have your baby in your arms - I still recall it quite vividly, but I'm so greatful for the beautiful boy I have now...

Sappy mom!

I was waiting for you to hit this stage! I knew it was coming... it will go by fast though and you'll be sitting there rocking he ron one of your many upcoming sleepless nights snd you will realize that you miss having her inside you. Treasure it now while you can (I know it's hard when you feel like crap) try and make a mental note of what it's like because it is so easy to forget.
