Waiting for Baby Sofia Marie

Sofia Marie is due September7th, which is this Wednesday…in case you were wondering that’s 5 days my friends… 5 DAYS!!! Saw the doctor on Thursday and she says that Sofia has no doubt dropped and the pains that I was feeling over the past few nights are pre-labor pains which means she could be here by the weekends end. However the doctor still in her heart thinks that she will be here on her due date. Either which way I am in crazy plan mode {which makes up for the lack of nesting going on I think}, making sure our Hospital Bags are in the car, a mini cooler is sitting out on the counter with a list of what needs to go inside once the onset of labor starts and the Laptop bag, consisting all its goodies are sitting beside the Laptop ready to go. 

Waiting for a flight to your anticipated Hawaii vacation, or waiting on a boy to call to ask you to the prom, or even waiting on the arrival of your new Louboutin Heels purchased off Gilt. These are all one kind of nerve that makes your tummy turn and toes never stop wiggling. But waiting on a baby to arrive, the explosion of water to burst, the onset of “the mother of all cramps”, well that’s a whole other type of nerves. For me I’m far from worried or nervous, the only word to describe my emotions are, excitement! I feel like I have all this love for her oozing out my every seam, and I need to suppress it for an unknown day ahead. I don’t do well without a timeline and so this unknown date that she will arrive drives me but a wee bit crazy. 

But I will let it be, I will relax, get as much sleep as I can and do the best I can to continue to prepare for her arrival. Sort her miniature clothing by size and color, iron and fold her ridiculously soft blankets, stocking her change table with diaper and wipes, put together all her battery operated furniture {which is everything}and of course remind the cat, lynx, that she soon will have to share out cuddling arms.

Alright Sofia Marie… come out when your ready, because Daddy and I are driving one another crazy with excitement.

  1. Good luck! I am so excited for you! She’ll be here very soon!

  2. Thanks Lindsay! I have a feeling I’m going to need all the luck I can get – so thank you! I will be sure to post an update as soon as she decides its her BIG debut!


  3. Enjoy every minute. The unknown is the hardest but someday you’ll look back and the pregnancy will feel like a blink. Labor/delivery are full of surprises but they are also completely unforgettable. I wouldn’t trade them for anything. And don’t be worried if in those first few weeks you feel more like you’re focused on schedules and just protecting precious Sofia than feeling that gushing mind-blowing love. Sometime it takes some adjustment (physically and mentally) but it will come and you’ll love her more than you ever thought possible.

    Thank you so much for your comments. Your story actually helps me believe that my labor/birth will too be one to remember and enjoy it being apart of memories.

    I am going to do my very best to roll with the punches {aka lack of sleep, poopy diapers and tears} and know that it will soon out shadow the amazing times with my baby girl.

    Thank You!

  5. Eek, loved this post and related to every.single.word!!! I was due yesterday (the 4th) and this “overdue” stuff isn’t too much fun. I have so much anticipation and you described how I’m feeling perfectly. Good luck to you, and I hope that the wait isn’t too much longer 🙂
