Waiting for Baby, part 3: Hurry up and wait.

Now, we wait.

I'm at 37 weeks, 2 days today. This is as pregnant as I've ever been. With both boys being early we all, my doctor included, expected an early baby this time as well. Every day I expect to be THE day.  While I haven't gained a ton of weight, I am heavy and awkward and super uncomfortable. My shirts do not cover my belly, as you can tell in that picture since I am holding it down. I am READY.

Meanwhile, life goes on right? Thursday night we had meet the teacher night at The Pirate's kindergarten. Can you believe he starts school, REAL SCHOOL, on Monday? I can not. Last night we had meet the teacher/ open house at his new daycare.  Because kindergarten is only a half day here he had to change to a new place that will do pick up and drop off for us, as his old daycare couldn't do it. He'd been going to the same in-home place for almost 5 years. We were all a little sad about that ending. (The Bug and the Baby will continue to go to her house though, so we'll still see her!) I was nervous about not being able to attend one or the other of those events, but made it right past them with no issues.   School starts on Monday and now we wait to see if I'll make it for that as well.

While we wait, I have most of the clothes washed and ready. We have diapers and wipes. Her bed is waiting (in our room) and her blankets have been washed. Her brothers and her mother can not WAIT to meet her. (Her father is still a bit nervous.)  Every day I get messages about the baby and every time I call someone they expect to hear news. Wait wait wait.

Maybe we should think of a name for this child while we wait? (We thought we had one. One of us changed our mind. There's just such pressure to Get It Right!)

  1. I know you're ready but I think you should really cross your legs and wait to have her until after the first day of school!

  2. Hang in there! You look wonderful and she will be a beautiful baby. Congratulations to Pirate for his upcoming first day of school.

  3. It happen as soon as you are busy with something else, of course! I can't wait to see a little girl photo to add to the already adorable boy photos on your header.

  4. The waiting is the HARDEST part!!!! Especially when it is your third (well for me anyways) and miserable and uncomfortable...etc. Good luck and we can't wait to see pictures of her when she finally comes.

  5. Yikes, I can't even imagine all the last waiting for baby. Good luck, and I hope you get to go to all the fun things coming up -- first day of school is so exciting!

  6. How exciting for Pirate and the rest that he is starting school tomorrow! I hope he loves it.

    Wishing the very best for you and baby. Good luck coming up with the names you like.

  7. Hi Lisa! I love your baby bulge! ^_^

    Waiting is indeed the hardest part. Hang in there. She'll come when she's ready --regardless of anyone's expectations. ;) I hope, however, her arrival is sooner than later for your sake!

    All the best to Pirate as he starts "real" school! Yippeee!

  8. You definitely look ready! The baby is so low! Go do lots of walking! Well, at least that's what I hear. Neither of my babies wanted to come out, I had to be induced! I can't wait to see baby girl! Good luck!

  9. Can't wait to hear what name you decide when the time comes. Wishing you a delivery soon. That is the most uncomfortable type of uncomfortable ever! :D But worth it.

  10. Girls are different. LOL. She wants to make an entrance.

    I do hope you are not too uncomfortable though. Even though you might feel a bit awkward you don't look it. You look great.

  11. Well, I hope you get to go to all the fun things coming up.

  12. You haven't got a name yet? OH NO! Good luck. Waiting is the worst, especially for something so exciting..
