Nearly too stressed to function but at least the sun is shining.
New baby could be here anytime! Within the next three weeks Ella will have a teeny tiny sister! I pulled out my teeny tiny little baby clothes yesterday, the ones that Ella, at a hefty 8 lbs 4 oz couldn't quite squeeze into at the hospital. This baby (and birth mom) do not appear to be quite so rotund as Ella and I did, so I am betting on the weensy ones, folded dearly on a dinner plate in the kitchen as we speak.
I also bought a pack of newborn diapers at the "grocery store" today, or the MARKET, as I like to call it, which for some reason can bring gales of laughter from my friends and co-workers.
I'm stressed, I'm on edge, I know anything could happen, Birthmom is more stressed and on edge than I am, so I guess I can be glad it's not my 17 year old body about to go through this ordeal.
Today we are getting that Labor inducing pizza from Cafe Trio for lunch, as birthmom requested on Sunday, although this morning I was informed that her tune has changed. A few contractions and instead of demanding the baby be born NOW, she is willing to wait for as long as she can.
Send her your prayers! To be so young, so far from home, so afraid of what's coming, and to not even want the baby that is putting you through all this? Can you imagine? All I can tell her is it will be over soon, and in a few more weeks she will be wearing her cap and gown (perfect postpartum attire) and graduating with her friends. And I will be the one up all night in dirty sweats. :)
