Adjournment was the word of this week for me, most certainly!
As you might know, I am expecting a baby boy. Any day now. This has been my slogan and opening line for the past, well, at least two weeks! You see, we have placed expectations on this baby based on our past experience with Emma and have anticipated his arrival early. By at least 9 days, that is!
But as my midwife said, this baby has his own ideas and wants to leave his own mark in our memories. By being late :-).
So, this week I have felt as if the journey to meet my little boy has been adjourned. And I won’t lie, I have felt tired, frustrated, relieved, down…all at once. But like with any other adjournment, I have a choice. I can choose to moan, groan and make my life and everybody else’s miserable. Or I can choose to go with it, make fun at the situation by asking friends’ opinion on provoking labour (and yes, nooky has been the predominant answer, if you are curious to know 🙂 Choose to reflect and enjoy the last moments of our life as it is at the moment.
So today we spent time together and with friends and we have really made an effort to appreciate what we have at present. Because we know that once the new chapter in our lives begins, things will be, well…different. We have another week, if this baby decides to stay put and until the planned induction next Sunday, to just take it easy. Enjoy the last leg of this pregnancy. Make the most of the life in three.
I will keep you posted if things change. If they don’t, see you in a week and a bit, with pics of my lovely newborn.
