Not Today

Oh my goodness. My head. It is heavier than my belly right now. Just about the time when most women in my pregnant state would be praying for baby to come out already, I am praying she stays put. Not today. Not until I get better, please! Sleep. And rest. I need.

And I'm writing at 5 Minutes For Parenting about another day coming up that could quite possibly be my baby's birthday, next week, you know the day.

  2. I know the feeling. I so wasn't ready for Stella the day she was born. I thought I had 10 more days! Fingers crossed for the other day too!

  3. Giggles! I know it's not funny, but I went through a major case of the flu the week Esme was due. And I was so annoyed that she wasn't coming yet that it probably made things worse. But I don't know how I would have handled it being sick and blowing my poor little nose all through labor.

    As soon as I was feeling a tiny bit better, she came - two weeks late by my calculation. And in retrospect, I was so grateful for that delay!

  7. Isn't the flu a sign that the baby will come soon? I had it bad with my first, ended up in the hospital ensuring it wasn't strep day after Xmas, and lo and behold, was in labor!

    *huge feeling better hugs*

  24. Getting over a head cold myself, but at least I don't have a baby due. At almost 42, I am probably past having anything other than Grandbabies. However, I hope that won't be for a few more years yet, my dd is only 19.
    Praying that you feel better quickly & your dear sweet bundle waits long enough for you to be ready for her.

  25. Yeah, I know the day. That's the day we leave the East Coast to travel to China to get our daughter.

    Originally, I was a little freaked out about leaving my four oldest to travel across the world "that day" to get my new daughter. But I figure, it's a perfect day to focus on change, on the joy we are facing, and the opportunities I can only celebrate in the US. To redeem my previous feelings of dread about the day. . . and turn it around to a day for our family to honor for a different reason. No less or more special, just different. Certainly happier.
