40 weeks

40 weeks
so here we are. yesterday marked 40 weeks and my "due date," that day that hangs over your head for 9+ months and then more often than not goes by leaving you waiting still. so as i wait patiently i just keep thinking about how lucky i am.
i have always dreamt of becoming a mother. from a young age i knew that no matter what i did career wise with my life what i wanted most was the opportunity to have a family. and so i've waited, waited for the day when i would finally be able to feel a life growing inside of me and waited for the day when someone could call me mother. as i sit here typing this watching my little girl swimming around i can't help but feel overwhelmed by the immense joy of knowing that soon i will meet her. soon i will be able to look into her eyes. soon i will be able to hold her in my arms and kiss her little head. soon i will be a mother. soon all that i ever wanted will be a reality.
