Is today the day I am going to have a baby?
Should I vacuum ONE MORE TIME?
What if my water breaks while I'm at Fareway or Target?
What will it be like to be able to bend over again?
Should I Swiffer the kitchen floor even though I scrubbed it just the other day?
Is this baby a BOY or a GIRL?!
Which doctor will deliver the baby?
Will baby like it's new room better than the womb?
Will I ever sleep again?
How long will I be in labor?
Will the baby have dark hair like it's mom and dad?
What will it be like to hold him or her for the first time?
When will my clothes fit again?
What will it be like to be able to see my feet again?!
Will the baby have really long legs and arms like it's dad? (It sure feels like it!)
How much will the baby weigh?
What day of the week will he or she be born?
What will Simon think of having a baby around?

How much longer do I have to wait to find out the answers to these questions?!?!?

Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord. (Psalm 27:14)

Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."

The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him; (Lamentations 3:22-25)


  1. I want to know the answers to all of these questions too!!! :Can I answer one of the questions for you - Yes, you will sleep again. There will be a time when you will feel like you will never get a full nights sleep again, but you will :)

  2. Although it might not feel like it, YOU WILL SLEEP AGAIN!! I totally agree with Kristy. It is key to remember to be thankful. Remember that this baby is your job now and sometimes he or she will require you to work nights for a little while. But thankfulness is key because they grow up SOOO fast! Can't wait to meet your little one!
