I’ve found it very difficult to remain positive this week; there have been tears of frustration and impatience, and lots of moments of “is this it?!” when tightenings and surges have decided to ramp up… only to dissipate into nothing.
This frustration hasn’t affected my thoughts on Peppercorn’s birth though – if anything, it’s left me feeling more excited for his arrival! I came up with an analogy for this birth limbo (which is very apt if you know me and know how much I love receiving post): it’s a bit like waiting for a really exciting parcel in the post – you know it’s coming and it could arrive at any time… However, unlike the post, it won’t get lost in a sorting office somewhere! He is definitely coming at some point in the next three weeks.
I have to be patient.
Which is something I’m not very good at… so here is my chosen positive inspiration quote for the week; it’s one that I continue to repeat to myself in the hope that it may penetrate my subconscious at some point!
Just give Mama a small hint Master Peppercorn…? Today? Tomorrow? Your “due date”?
