At this point, I find this wait agonizing. Despite doing everything in my power to distract myself for the past week, I’m so confused and frustrated every day.
I don’t want to complain. I know due dates aren’t exact. I know my body doesn’t work like a computer or a machine and neither does this baby. I know the same thing that happened last time (delivering on my due date) wasn’t likely to happen again. I know it’s so important that this baby comes when ready and not a second before. But why won’t he just come out already?! This really stinks!
I need distractions, but everything I do to distract myself, only reminds me how much I want to have this baby now. Right now! I don’t want to wait. I know that’s incredibly selfish, but it’s the reality of how I feel. Nothing I own fits me anymore without cutting off circulations somewhere, I can’t keep up with Little Man, I have no motivation or energy to continue to “nest” (plus I don’t know what more I could do), I don’t have the energy to cook or bake, I can’t go out without someone asking me when I’m due, and I can’t comfortably sit in the car for more than five seconds.
Other than just a way to get these feelings off my chest, this post is a request. I would love ideas on how to distract myself. Ideas on how to help things along naturally are always welcome, too. I do know most natural ways to induce aren’t exactly based in fact, but it’s still fun to hear what other women tried and what they feel worked for them! Plus, if nothing else, you’re helping me to distract myself 🙂
