Waiting Game

So... last night I was terribly sick. (I will spare you the details!) And, I was up half the night. I was so sure that it was pre-labor purging that I got panicked. I actually started shaking so bad (from an adrenaline rush) that I could not lie still! I just knew that I was starting labor! I was wrong. No sign of labor at all today. No contractions, no back spasms, nothing.

My dishes are all clean, the laundry is all done, I got a nap, the house is clean, the house is vaccuumed... I am ready to go to the hospital... but things rarely happen in my timing. The way I figure it, the Baby will come when the dishes are stacked to the ceiling, the laundry is piled up, the house is a wreck, and I have not had a nap... that's usually the way it goes.

As you can see, I don't really have anything to say. I just wanted to write a post, so that you would know I am not having a baby today.

Oh Bethany! I know how hard it is to wait. Especially when you are waiting for such a good thing! It sounds like you are having a great attitude about it though. Maybe soon....

Yep, in God's time! You'll be surprised though at how His Hand will guide the whole thing, things like child care for the olders, Hubby being in the right place at the right time etc...

hang in there, I think the more pregnancies I had the more impatient I was at the end, I knew the signs of labor...waiting is hard!

Kimberly,

Maybe I do not know the signs of labor as well as I should. With 3 out of 4 babies, my water broke first! I am counting on that happening again, so I will KNOW that I am in labor.
