February 25, 2013

My love,

You're late, you're late, for a very important date! By about four days at this point. You were due on 2/21, and here we are on 2/25 with no signs of labor. I know that you're happy and healthy in there, and that makes it a bit easier, but not by much. I also know it's common for first time moms to go over their due dates, but silly me thought I would be exempt. Haha!

I've been through so many emotions on this topic over the last couple of weeks. I started my maternity leave two weeks before my due date so I could relax before you got here and everything went crazy. Now I find myself trying to escape boredom. We have an induction scheduled for 3/3 if you're not already here, but I'd really prefer to not have to go that route as inductions tend to carry a higher risk of ending in a C-section.

I told your father that as long as you're okay, I don't mind being pregnant another week, but the truth is that every day that goes by, I have a stronger and stronger need to hold you. A stronger need to see and kiss your pretty face and tickle your little feet. Once you're here, life will never be the same. It's going to be loud, crazy, sleep-deprived, scary and expensive; I know all of this. But I have this feeling that it's going to be wonderful also.

I can't help it. I'm so anxious to meet you. Don't make us wait too long, okay?

Love,
Me
