So, I’m teeeerrrrrrible at being post Due Date. I flipping hate it. There’s all this talk for 9 months about when baby is supposed to come and so far, no baby has been on time much less early. So, this time around with little baby #3rd I’m going to *try* a different approach: being POSITIVE. What’s that?, you say? Yes, I’m going to try it on for size, a very large 10 months pregnant size, but try I shall.
I am reminded by my dear friend Kathryn, whom I refer to a lot of Team Whitaker, that I need to relish and enjoy these pregnant moments. So, here I go, enjoying what and when I can. These are likely the last moments of being pregnant I will ever have. At 42, it’s proving to be quite a spiritual, mental and physical challenge, tho I am extremely grateful this pregnancy has been totally uneventful. Thanks be to God.
So: the Strategy list. I’m a list maker. It’s how I keep my brain in check with the world.
Eat, drink your H2O, shower and brush your teeth. Simple enough, right?
Stay focused on the good stuff like: our sweet little babe will be here soon; you get to see people get really excited about a new little life, your cute children who are so excited to meet little one, your husband trying to do everything he can to make things easier on you, having a really great hospital you get to deliver at; Delivering in Colorado!; it’s a gorgeous day.
Remember that God has a plan for me. And that I am His child and he for realz sent His Only Son to die for me. Dude.
I live in a beautiful state in the best nation on planet Earth and that the Blessed Virgin has my back.
Remember what cool timing it is that there is a Novena to Our Lady Undoer of Knots that I am participating in right now to promote the culture of Life in Colorado and the United States of America.
We totally have the name thing down. Saints- you know who you are- Pray for us! (sorry, not telling until little man makes his entrance. Tho- if anyone guesses first and middle name, I will personally send you something ridiculous and silly).
I can do this, I can do this, I can do this, I. CAN. DO. THIS. ~By the grace of God and a little divine intervention. Oh, and chocolate.
Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, Pray for us.
Entonces, no tienen que tener miedo. YO sólo necesitan tener confianza en el Señor.
Hope to have a baby by next post amigos. Thanks for stopping by!
Head over to Jen’s for maybe some non-preggo news and good reading.
