It’s now October 29th (two days to our due date), and no sign of Abigail’s desire to come into this world. Well, let me rephrase that…there are signs, but no definite action. I’ve lost 3 lbs of fluid from my swollen legs, my stomach has been very upset lately, and my back has been hurting a lot – all signs of early labor coming. For the past three days we’ve been hoping that she would come, but it looks like none of these early labor signs are triggering contractions.
I must say, I’m getting so tired of being pregnant – but, mostly, I think I’m just impatient because I want to meet my little baby. I’m afraid of just going about my daily tasks as usual, because I may be too tired for labor if I were to start contractions. Am I being unreasonable? Sure, treating each day like a normal day would make the time pass by faster – but then I tend to overwork myself and will be exhausted if I were to go into labor.
What a dilemma…
I have to decide if I’m going to start doing things tomorrow, or continue my lazy days of rest. It is so boring to rest. Really, how much rest can any one person handle?
Letter to my baby:
ABIGAIL, darling, mommy and daddy are ready to meet you. 🙂 I know you’re enjoying your time in my comfy and warm womb, but trust me – we will take good care of you and love you dearly when you come out.
