I've never had to face this situation before since Scarlett came early. Almost 2 weeks early. When they say every pregnancy is different, it is true. I'm finding myself getting nervous. Nervous about all the "what if's". I know so many women go through this but honestly, this is the last thing that I thought I would have to worry about: a late baby. I feel like it's always the things that I don't worry about that happen to me. I just assumed that he would be here early since Scarlett was an early bird. All those mothers warning me, "If your first came early, the second will be sooner."
It just goes to show that every pregnancy, every woman and baby are different. And although all the bits of advice and tips are with good intentions, I brush them all off because I know that it's all going to happen how it's going to happen.
And so I try to be patient. I'm not good with the unknown. I am the girl with a planner and all of my dates and times are perfectly laid out in them. I am organized and when things don't go according to my plans, it doesn't sit well. So as you could guess, I'm struggling with the unknown here. Trying to let it all be in God's hands. Because it certainly isn't in my control.
Life keeps on going. And I've apparently got plenty of time to take selfies of my 40 week bump...Ha.
