During my 8th month of pregnancy I filled out papers for my maternity leave. I was so sure that I would probably go later than my due date, being a first time mom and all. I set the date to be the week after my due date and if there was still no baby I would continue to work. I really want to stay home as long as possible with her before I have to return back to work. Everyone would say you don't have long until your due date and I would reply I want to go later than my due date. This kind of shocked people because most times people would like to go on time if not early.
I am eating my words right about now. Every since I hit the count down of around 15 days left, I felt this overwhelming desire to have her here. I am not uncomfortable, so I could really do this longer, but my anxiousness of meeting her, holding her and seeing how she will look is tearing me down. All in due time!!
I am very grateful I have a job that keeps me busy!!
10 more days to go!!
