A Few Numbers

Written by Shannon Leigh

10 full days that I have gone over my due date
0 number of real contractions I've had
3 times per night I get up to pee
1260 times Peanut's foot gets caught in my ribs per day
9 (actually 10) LONG months of being pregnant
24 hours a day I'm reminded that I'm STILL pregnant
5 -percentage of women who go LONGER than 2 weeks after their due dates
80 -percentage the doctor gave me that I would go into labor on my own before my next appointment
2 days until my next appointment
6 weeks since the nursery has been finished and sitting empty
4 1/2 weeks since I've been considered "full term"
1,000,000 things on my mind
3 packed bags ready for the hospital
75 times I've RE-PACKED the bags for the hospital
1 very anxious mom-to-be
1 perfect baby
1 God, totally in control
INFINITE grace that is sufficient

I'm really thankful for the last three.

Hi Shannon,
Love your blog and your insights. Feel like I can understand your waiting a little. All of my kids were very late in arriving...2 weeks with girls, 3 and more with boys. Don't think they let you go more than 2 weeks over anymore, so should be soon for you. The first baby is so hard to wait for! Know that this baby will be blessed with a great home.
