The anticipation…..

It’s killing me (…not really).

Third time in, I’m realizing that I am a completely, hopelessly, horribly IMPATIENT person.  Luckily I married my exact opposite.

It’s the not knowing when labor will start. 

It’s the not knowing how it will all go down.

It’s the not knowingThe loss of control.

002I’m reminded that patience is such an important virtue to have…in fact, it’s a fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22)!  Patience (endurance) produces CHARACTER!  And I can always use more of that!

So…..I’ll just be over here WAITING for this sweet babe to arrive.

Waiting and praying and cleaning the crap out of my house.

QUESTION:  Are you a control freak (like me)?  More relaxed?

  1. I’m totally a control freak, too! But I have a feeling most every woman would say they can relate to what you’re feeling right about now. :-) I love that verse, thanks for sharing!

    ps. I’ve been meaning to tell you, but I love the new blog design!

  2. I don’t know how I will be when I do decide I want kids. I think the unknown will kill me. Good luck to you! I am so happy for you and your family.

  3. This waiting for labor game almost did it in for me with my first, unfortunately I went 13 days past due and had to get induced which was worse in a way as ‘sure’ it was scheduled but I felt I failed pregnancy as I couldn’t do it naturally so my type A was mad. Oh well, it’s not necessarily a race but sure feels like it at the time! Wishing for labor in the very imminent future for you!

  4. I’m right there with you on the patience part. If I had a dollar for every time someone has given me the ‘be patient’ speech in the past couple months, I would be able to pay off some debt. Ha! It’s very hard to wait, but it’s all worth it in the end. Plus, once the wait is over, you will have been given the most wonderful gift again… be a mommy all over!! :)

  5. I’m a total control freak too! But pregnancy is definitely teaching me to give it up and just trust God…so much is beyond my control with my body and the babies at this point :) I have a Fruit of the Spirit bracelet that I wore for our wedding I may have to wear it a couple times next week to remind me PATIENCE AND TRUST!
