One more month.

One more month until this bouncy baby is bouncing in my arms instead of in my belly.  One more month until I am a mother, until I am responsible for someone else's life and well-being.  One more month until I test out all the parenting theories I've pondered for years.

It's been nearly three years to the day that my husband and I started trying to have a baby.  Three years.  One might think that I would be extra-anxious for this last month to fly by.  But I'm not.  I think I've even managed to develop some patience over the past three years; I am trying to enjoy every horrible moment of this pregnancy because there's always the possibility that it could be my only one.  As long as she's not in danger, I'm in no hurry to move faster than nature intended.  No matter how uncomfortable I am.

One more month.

And, with as much certainty as one can guarantee in the Army, my husband should be home in roughly half that time.

Everything's coming up Milhouse.  Finally.

1 Gosh, you're so cute, I just want to hug you.

Except that would be weird and creepy because I don't really know you.

And, I have personal boundary issues.

But, if it weren't for that, I'd hug you. :-D

2 You look radiant. I am so happy for you.

3 You look awesome!  You are going to be the best mom evah.  The only piece of assvice I will spew is this: Trust your instincts.  Everything else will come naturally.  I have loved being a mom more than being able to breathe.  I look at Olivia daily and am in awe of her. I'm losing my baby, but I've gained a little friend with whom I love spending time.  I don't know if I appreciate being a mom more because I'm older or if it's because it was a freaking long road to get here and I don't ever want to take it for granted.

Sending lots of good wishes your way.............
