At 37 weeks, I am officially full term in this pregnancy. It seems like I always struggle with waiting patiently once I know the baby's lungs are fully developed and she could survive if she was born now. I am just really tired now and ready to have some energy back. But I know once little Sugar Plum arrives our family dynamics will change and my time will have to be shared with four family members instead of only three. So for now I am trying to enjoy the time I have, and I'm praying for patience.
I have tried specifically to spend extra time with Lil Pumpkin and Sweet Pea because my lap will be full of a newborn in the next couple of days or weeks. I think Sweet Pea will especially miss cuddling up into my lap anytime she wants. She's my little cuddlebug.
Though I want to be patient, there is a special reason I would really like for Sugar Plum to arrive tomorrow. Tomorrow is Sugar Plum's great grandmother's birthday, from whom she takes her middle name. What a special thing it would be if they not only shared a name but a birthday as well!
