We're in the final countdown week of this pregnancy adventure. Which means waiting, something I'm terrible (TERRIBLE!) at. With the exception of pain and manual labor/chores, I'm probably the most impatient person you have ever met in your life. So this is yet another growth experience - to me, love The Universe.
I'm trying to adapt. With all of the baby projects complete (exception: disability paperwork*) I've been nesting other places. Like organizing my office, getting the garden/yard somewhat in order, having folks over for dinner, filing old paperwork, and you know - going on a last trip to Canada at 38 weeks (Photos from Niagara on the Lake).
Basically I'm bored with waiting. And even though everyone (EVERYONE!) keeps telling me to put my very swollen feet up or take a nap - I'm sorry ya'll, I just cannot. I wasn't built to sit still unless I'm procrastinating (something I am very good at). The baby will come of course when he is good and ready. I'm sure I'll miss the days of regular sleep, but I'm also really excited to get on with it. I'm good under that kind of pressure; a challenge to survive and own a difficult situation is my forte. It's the waiting...the patience...the "just be"... that I'm no good at.
Jonesing for the latest photos of the nursery? Here ya go. It's finally finished. Thanks to everyone who helped make it beautiful and this mama's dream come true.
*Bonus rant: How on god's green earth is any new mama supposed to chase down all of the info they need after birth? If we can't fix family leave in this country, can we at least fix disability/pregnancy paperwork? For Pete-sakes!
