My little girl and I had a pancake date this morning. I woke up feeling really discouraged that a. I'm still pregnant b. I'm still coughing c. we're dealing with a crappy personal situation etc and so forth and I thought, "what's happy?" Then I thought of Matilda, our baby, and Sam and all of the things I have to be thankful for and I decided that pancakes were necessary for the gloomy morning. If nothing else it would be a time to avoid the nasty political commentary online and to get some great face time with that cutie up there.
Matilda wanted to wear that hat and mittens all morning and she just warms my heart. She said, "I just love ------- SO much. I can't wait for her to get here. I love her." Music to my ears. I've had to have some tests done over the past week to check on our girl and I fully believe that everything is fine but it's been hard and I've really been feeling alone in it all. Texts and messages are so appreciated but it's always nice to hear from friends, too. I'll have to remember this in the future when my other mama friends get down to the wire. It can be a real emotional and draining time.
So, this post was supposed to be about dealing with waiting...
Would love to hear your suggestions for biding your time during the final days of pregnancy. Everyone I know who was expecting has had their baby. I know they come out but I feel a bit despaired. I just can't wait to meet her. Love to all of you!
