The time is finally here for my daughter to give birth to my first grandchild! We are all so excited and hope every minute that she goes into labor! She is not actually due until Monday but about a week ago, she was having timetable contractions which were getting closer together and we thought it was finally TIME!! The problem is I live in South Carolina and she lives right outside of Boston, MA. Well needless to say, I got on the first plane out the following morning only to have the contractions stop later that night. I was so nervous about missing this amazing experience that my daughter was about to go through that it was worth being here for an extra week or so. I had 3 C-sections so I am so excited to live vicariously through my daughter delivering this baby all on her own!!
And now I have been here for over a week and contractions come and go but nothing consistent. We walk everyday and try all kinds of different foods but so far nothing has worked. We can barely wait another minute!! But that little girl is in no rush to leave her comfy home and is determined to come on her own time.
So we fill our idle time with nursery projects. Everyday we come up with another cute thing to do in her already adorable room. This baby better hurry up and come before we paint everything in the house pink! The one good thing about my early arrival is that we’ve never have had this much time together to craft. And we are so enjoying it!! I will be posting nursery pictures very soon so stay tuned.
We now have everything a baby would ever want or need…..now all we need is a baby!
