Let's be honest. Being overdue stinks. If you have had babies but never gone past your estimated due date, count your mental blessings.
Apparently, my babies don't like to come early. And I absolutely agree that it's called **estimated** due date for a reason. But it's still no fun to see that day come and go.
I was five days past my EDD with Kaylee. Although, according to my calculations she was only two days "late". I really thought this pregnancy was my most accurate due date yet. So I suppose I had expectations that I wouldn't really go past my EDD and if I did, not by much.
When will I learn not to have expectations? :)
Today, I'm three days past my EDD. I keep having to remind myself that's not much. And you're not even considered post-date until after 42 weeks.
My friend sent me a verse I've been reading a lot lately when I start feeling sorry for myself.
"Surely just as I have intended so it has happened, and just as I have planned so it will stand...For the Lord of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?" - Isaiah 14:24,27
I want to wait for the Lord's timing. Throughout this pregnancy He has been showing me my lack of trust in Him. And I've realized I can't control as much as I'd like. This is no different.
|40 weeks and 2 days|
But it will be soon. I know it will. I just have to be patient.
In the mean time, I'll keep making memories with my other two not-so-much-babies-anymore :)
