40-Week Update

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Today is my official due date.

As a Virgo, I'm an uber-planner. I do realize that certain things are beyond my control -- and the birth of my child is one of those things. It is driving me crazy to not know when he will make his appearance. I'm trying to surrender to the experience and be all zen about it; but it is difficult.

My plan for today is to keep busy and hopefully distract myself a bit. I'll relax in the afternoon and finish reading my book.

Just... WAITING!

    I'm a Virgo too - and also an uber-planner! I had no idea the 2 might be related!

Best wishes for you, sweetie - keeping calm and healthy thoughts for you uppermost in my mind - take good care!!!

    You sound JUST like my oldest daughter - who is pregnant and also a Virgo. They are expecting their 2nd child in September. Her first, my gdaughter, was delivered via C-section. I'm hoping she can avoid that this time.

Hang in there - all in Gods time. Plan as much as you can and accept the fact the when the baby is born, there will be many things that you just can't plan for! kids will do that to ya emoticon emoticon

    Be calm, try to relax, try to think that not everything in life can be planned but try to enjoy the surprise, especially like when your baby will come to the world :D But as you said it, make several backup plans, can't hurt to have contingency plans :D

    Good luck! The waiting is the hard part but enjoy your last few moments of peace and quiet!

You're in my thoughts and prayers.

    I saw the email for your blog, and my first thought was that you had delivered. I know how slow the time goes when you just wait for something to happen. But it will, and the time will speed by.

Take care!
