I haven't ever been pregnant, so I don't know what these last few days of pregnancy are like. I have had pregnant friends and I know it gets uncomfortable at the end. For me, this ending is a stomach twisting time of anticipation. If you are pregnant, you know that you get to meet the baby the minute you give birth. In our situtation, we wait seven whole DAYS after the birthmom signs her papers to meet the baby. So this means the baby will be eight or nine days old when we meet her and bring her home.
"They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength..." I think I will be very strong by the time this whole thing is over. I'll be able to lift a car with all these mental muscles that I'm working out.
I'm sure many of you out there are tired of hearing about this, the baby. And I can't promise that once she's home I won't be babbling about how cute she is or what cute little baby things she is doing, or what sappy little sounds she makes. If this bothers you, I'm sorry. But it's my life and I'm still sharing it.
