The Final Two Week Wait

Everything about pregnancy was new to me. Until now.

The last two weeks are so very familiar.

It's the two week wait. Except a little different. Every cramp, every twinge, boob pain, discomfort, back pain, temperature change, feeling "off", feeling "great"... they were all signs I read into every month for the past 3 years. And now they are all signs I'm reading into today. Instead of searching the TP for spotting to show implantation, I'm looking for the bloody show. Instead of twoweekwait.com I'm googling "how did you feel before labor".

Of course there is on amazing difference...I know how this will end. And pretty soon Beautiful Baby Bea will be here.

Very soon. If I don't go before - my induction is scheduled for the 17th.

11.17.10 That feels like a good day to have a baby.
