as you may have read in a previous post, i had a hopeful moment a few days ago that i was going into labor (loose stools....just how it started with dd2) but nothing more has happened & now i'd like Babe to wait a little longer.

my grandfather died yesterday. he went very peacefully with my mom & 2 of his sons at his side. because of this, i desperately want this baby to wait a week so my mother can grieve the loss of her parent & joyfully participate in the birth of her grandson. i feel selfish admitting that but it's for my mom as much as it is for me.

this is my second really big encounter with the cycle of life & it's powerful! last winter i m/c'd with subsequent hemmhorage & the day i came home from the ER i found out my brother & wife were pregnant with their first (after 2 years of TTC & eventual IVF). the news was a balm for my aching heart so perhaps this birth will be the same for my mom.

just wanted to share because it's heavy on my heart today....

I bet nothing will bring your mom more joy right now than a new grandchild!
