Me too! But I imagine that in your case its about the imminent arrival of 2 little ones.

Jen said...

Une véritable vertu effectivement... Bisous.

*sigh* me, too. But I think what you are being patient about is completely worth being IMPATIENT about ;)

nikki said...

i don't think anyone can blame you for a little impatience in this situation. i'm getting impatient for you! can't wait to meet the little guys. :)

I'm also getting impatient for you. I check onto this blog regularly, eagerly anticipating news of the babies' arrival! Guess I should work on the patience thing too, huh?

Claire said...

ditto!! i feel for you, my dear...
my daughter - now 13 - engaged on 18 december 1997 and didn't enter the world till the 29th! truly, those were the longest 11 days of my e-n-t-i-r-e life!!

OK, try this. It worked for me 19 years ago. Say to a friend, loudly and with the kind of self-pitying exhaustion only a pregnant woman can feel, "I ... Just ... Can't ... DO THIS ANYMORE!"

(Two hours later my water broke.)
:D
Sending you happy and hasty wishes!

I have not commented here in a while...in fact I wondered if I had missed the big event. It'll soon be here. Best wishes to you and Edgar!

I can't even imagine what you are feeling, but know that I am keeping you in my thoughts. Also, maybe this should be a print. It seems many of us struggle with patience!

Don't worry...one of the side effects of rearing babies is a great expansion in your patience well...that's as opposed to growing babies, which merely results in a great expansion in your midsection.

With twins, I have no doubt that your patience will be quadrupled!

For now - rest up...take deep(ish) breaths...enjoy those quiet moments with just you and Edgar!

Thank you all for your sympathy and commiseration. My official 'twin' due date is today, so it could happen any day now!!!!!
