from Beginning to End (almost).
I have been feeling sort of badly for myself the last day or so. You know, earlier in the week, I felt like the wee-one was going to come at any time! I was energized! I was ready! And now, time seems to be at a crawl and... I feel like I will be pregnant forever. I know, I know. I still have a week to go till my due date. A week seems so far away! And so many people I know delivered before their due dates recently (first-time moms) and I just thought I'd be one of them, too. But now I am coming to terms with the fact that I really could be pregnant for another 7 days and possibly longer. But that's okay. After making this collage this morning, I realize just how far I have come in this journey of growing a wee-one so what's a few more days? It is pretty amazing to look back and see the progression of my growing belly (I was so skinny!) and to think she could be here any day now. Any minute, really. So I am just trying to relax (so hard for me). Slow down. Take deep breaths. Enjoy the quiet. And dream about her cute little wee-face.
Any tips to help bring on labor? Honestly... I've googled everything under the sun and I've come to realize that there isn't much I can do. This wee-one will come out when she's good and ready.
