Any Day Now
I’ve come to the realization that I could be having this baby any day now. And I still have so much to do. At this point though, I don’t really care about what’s left to do and I just want to hold my baby for the first time. He’s not due until the 15th, but I’ve started to have more intense Braxton Hicks contractions and backaches, as well as a few other signs that labor is on it’s way. Its just a matter of “waiting for the door to open.”
I do think little man will arrive sooner rather than later, not just because of the signs my body is giving me, but because my dogs were extra clingy today. Koufax and Reba would not leave my side this morning, not even for their breakfast. So even they know we’re getting close. In all honesty, while I think it would be cool for us to share a birthday (Sept. 14th) I think it would be really special if he were born tomorrow on the 8th because the anniversary of when we first saw baby Alex’s heartbeat before she passed away last October. Its as if it would be a sign from my baby girl that she is watching over us.
