I came across this poem which I wrote very close to my due date and thought it was worth posting now:

Waiting is hard.
Not being able to control the outcome, the timing.
To simply wait in peace...it's challenging.
I want to be able to do something to speed time along.
I'd like to just "know" what was going to happen and when.
Instead I am powerless.
It is not my nature to be passive about life.
But there is no person I can incessantly bother,
There are no tasks I can do to bring me closer.
I have to just surrender to waiting.
It's the submissiveness that really gets to me.
I must resolve to accept what comes.

- Corazon Aquino
