While I am Waiting... Weeks 4-40

Happy Due Date, Violet!
It has come and it is almost gone with no more indications of when she will actually arrive! I never thought about how this actual day would feel... it was always just a distant goal in my mind. When we first found out we were pregnant back in early December 2009, August seemed a lifetime away. Now that we are here, it feels like we have been waiting for her for an eternity! I have to remind myself that God has had her birthday planned way before I even knew she existed. As I sit here through sporadic contractions that still make no sense, I remind myself that the longer I have to wait, the more precious the moment will be when I finally get to see her sweet face. Pregnancy has not been nearly the horrifying experience I expected, and many of those naysayers were proved wrong. I have really enjoyed being pregnant through the summer, I have had only a handful of hormonal ups and downs, and have felt generally wonderful up until these last few weeks! I absolutely cannot WAIT to sleep on my back again, enjoy a nice glass of red wine, have a waist, paint my own toenails, and BREATHE again! Most of all, I cannot wait to experience life with a tiny new little piece of us. I know that everything will change in the blink of an eye, I will experience complete sleep deprivation, probably completely doubt myself as a new parent, but again, I cannot wait! I am so ready for this new life transition. Now all we need is the baby. :-) Here's a quick trip down memory lane from weeks 4-40. I cannot wait to see what happens next!
