Well, so much for two weeks!
Shortly after my first blog, I was informed by my doctor that the wait for our baby girl would not be quite as long as we anticipated. I’m being induced April 7, one full week before my due date.
It’s funny. Before I learned that news, I thought I was as ready as I could be. I was dying of boredom looking for anything else I could prepare. One little doctor’s appointment and all of that just flew out the window!
Within hours, my mom and I were out and about, doing what we do best – shopping. Suddenly, I had this horrible feeling that the closet full of clothes I’d prepared wasn’t full enough and the mountain of diapers I’d acquired wasn’t high enough. Also, the knowledge that she would arrive in time for Easter filled me with this strange, undeniable urge to hunt down and purchase some time of infant sized hat with bunny ears.
It seems odd how bumping things up by just one week has made it seem so much closer. Seven days can make a world of difference. Maybe it’s just the fact that I know when it’s going to happen, but what seemed before like a lifetime away, now seems unbelievably close by.
Four more days – I can’t wait!
