Hold That Baby!

Really. One of my very best friends is at the end of her first pregnancy right now. If she has not given birth herself by next weekend then she is going to be induced. I was talking to her on the phone yesterday and she said “I am just ready to go ahead and have this baby,” and I thought “Whoa sister! Enjoy these last few days! Go to the movies, get a massage or a pedicure or just sit in a silent room and relax for a while. Do things that you will not be able to do with children.” I know, I know you are big and fat and can’t breathe or sleep and at this point there is not even any enjoyment in activities that are typically quite fun like eating and sex but listen, these are the last days that you will ever be able to go out to eat or get a pedicure without having to think about what you are going to do with the kids. I love nothing more than being a mother. Really it is my favorite thing! But when I want to do anything besides be a mom I, like all other mothers, have to make sure the kids are accounted for and that is something an expectant mother does not always realize. So my advice to you is enjoy these last few days because your life is getting ready to be shaken up a bit…to say the least!
