I'm Impatiently Waiting...


I'm impatiently waiting the arrival of our little girl. 

She dropped two weeks ago and I've been having Braxton Hicks every single day for a few hours plus a ton of back pain. I've been nauseous and my body is acting like it is getting ready for labor and so I wait...

But I am not good at waiting. 

I've never been a very patient person and most people who know me, know this full well. I want things done. I want things to happen. I do not like to wait. 

So when all of these signs of labor start occurring I begin praying that it's the real thing. I begin praying that I will soon be able to hold my baby girl in my arms. I begin praying that with every sting of back pain it will become more painful, more real, more apparent that she will soon be making her appearance, that I will soon be experiencing the very real pain of labor.

I want to hold her.

I want to gaze into her precious little eyes. 

I want to feel those crazy emotions that overcome you when you first lay eyes on that beautiful little person who has been growing inside for the majority of the last year. 

I want to see if she has thick, dark hair like I did as a baby or if her head is smooth in need of headbands to let people know yes! she is a little girl!

I'm ready for the exhaustion of labor and I'm ready for the exhaustion of the sleepless nights. 

I'm ready for the feedings in the middle of the night and what seems hourly during the day.

I'm ready for Bryson and Remy to hold and kiss on their little sister. 

I'm ready for my husband to be wrapped around the finger of another little girl. 

I'm ready for our family to become a family of five. 

I'm ready and yet...I wait. 

I'm writing this to ask for prayer and support. 

I'm writing this so that loved ones will surround my family in love and maybe will me some patience. 

I know once she is here, time will fly. 

I know once she is here, I will wonder why I was so impatient.

I know once she is here, it won't matter that all of the back pain, the nausea, the signs of labor lasted for a few weeks up to her delivery. 

I know all of this. 

I just know that we are ready to embrace her fully and I'm ready for that day to be today.
