Another week

Yeah, Thursday next week I am meant to give birth to my new child which has been incredibly active, tiresome, achy, hungry and moody in these nine months.

Notwithstanding all this, I can't help a few questions which were never answered in my last pregnancy due to him being induced:
  1. Will this babe be early by a few days, on time or late?
  2. When will the contractions start- while at home in the morning, afternoon or night; while out and about or what?
  3. How will we all react with calmness, nervousness, anxiety...?
Another question which isn't however part of the never answered series, is, will it be another quick birth or a long one? 

There are moments were it seems the focus on the baby is simply pushed towards me.  Something that I am trying to avoid coz at times I get the feeling the more you focus on something the less quickly it happens.  But apart for my strangeness in these equations, I am in good health.  I can't really complain as my pregnancy was plain sailing as such.  But boy, do I look forward to a lighter and skinnier me again?

I dream- I dream of being me again, of buying clothes which I am in desperate need, of being able to run, do yoga, clean the house and bake without feeling exhausted within 5 minutes.  I dream of playing with my son again the way he expects me to do and not just read stories to him or plunk him in front of the TV.

Another week is all it takes if my angel makes a move- given a message from above that its time to meet the world- another week and our lives will once more be irrevocably changed!
