39 Weeks: Yes, I'm Still Pregnant (Babies & Beyond Link-Up #34)


Over the past week I've made a certain discovery about myself. I dislike uncertainty. I like having a plan and knowing the details. It doesn't even have to be MY plan, as long as there is one and I understand it. 

Thus, this whole waiting for baby thing is pretty much torture for me. Of course, most people just assume I'm impatient, but honestly, I'm not! Everyone makes comments like "You're ready to pop," and "I know your tired of waiting," and "Any day now!". They are all very right. I am ready to pop. I am tired at least. And it really could be any day now. 

But it wouldn't bother me in the least if it was next week or March 1st or whenever! I just wish I knew when. I don't like the suspense of waiting and wondering, or making tentative plans and hoping that today is the day only to have my hopes dashed against the rocks.

Imagine that Christmas was this unpredictable. Every morning your head would pop off the pillow and you'd rush to the living room and there would be no presents. You'd look out your window while you make lunch wondering if Santa would magically appear during nap time. And every night as you lay your head on the pillow you'd hope beyond reason that tomorrow was the BIG day with lights and trees and Christmas songs! 

Except tomorrow would be just like today. No Santa Clause, no presents, no baby. 

Now I know there is one guarantee. I will go into labor eventually. It's inevitable. I will have this baby one way or another, I just don't know which way or when.

So I just keep looking out the window hoping to hear sleigh bells, and bide my time eating Christmas cookies and twiddling my thumbs. 

Come to think of it, I might be getting a little impatient.

Now it's Link-up Time!
