new territory... Day 12

i have never made it this far in a pregnancy before...
It is sort of a surreal feeling to wake up in the morning (or several times during the night) & realize that you're still pregnant - that you have no signs of imminent labour - that you will need to make a new plan for a new day, a new week... with no new baby.
Physically, i feel fine. i'm lucky in how i seem to carry my babies with minimal discomfort. i'm still enjoying little punches and jabs... the curiosity is killing me though... as i wonder about this tiny one who just isn't ready to come & meet mama yet.
i had meals mapped out perfectly - if i went 3, 4 or 5 days past dates... but we're starting to eat out of the freezer. Part of me is rebelling - i don't want to go to the grocery store *again* - when i thought i already went for "the last time" before baby.
Neil has been sneaking to Sobey's or Superstore - picking up that extra gallon of milk, another dozen eggs, all those things that seem to disappear all too quickly in a family of 8.
i can't put it off forever though - our pantry is wearing down - my parents are arriving tonight - another weekend has passed & another week begun. The littles have violin, awana, lessons and appointments... life has to go on...
As we continue to wait on life.
Baby, mama's sure ready for you...

I really wish I had some great encouraging words or advice to give you. Everybody's waiting is different and not sure what words would help you as you wait...
Just still thinking & praying for you.
Want me to do a grocery run for you?! Ooooh, I so wish it wasn't a 4 hour drive....

Sounds like tonight might be a good time for baby to decide to make his appearance (yes, I think its gonna be another boy!) with Granny and Grandpa arriving to run the show on the home front. Blessings as you prepare for the blessed event! After all, you can't be pregnant forever!!!

My little one seemed to take forever to come too. Glad you're feeling well, though. I was totally miserable!

Come out little baby! I'm thinking and praying (and neurotically checking the blog) for you. I'm glad you are comfortable. I have a knitting project going that I hope to send your way and it's almost done!
