Met a friend online--she's due with her 9th (!) in April...and I love her blog for many reasons. I just wanted to share this post because it's so great. I can honestly say I hope this baby stays in at least 40 weeks because I'm pretty anxious about how I'll do being a mother of two (I'm disorganized, lazy and I want to be able to continue working out and giving birth and having a newborn make all that very difficult), but for those who might want it all to go faster...My favorite line: Relax and enjoy these last weeks of pregnancy. They don't last forever and before long you'll be wishing for them again. Trust that God's design is perfect. He planned for everything in creating a woman's body. You are made for this.
