While I'm Waiting

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Nope, no baby yet.

and I really thought today would be the day.

One of my favorite songs is by John Waller. I listened to the lyrics month after month while trying to conceive, waiting on the day we would see those two pink lines.

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it's not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve you while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord

Amazing how 9 months later, here I am listening to these lyrics again as I anxiously await for baby Cade to arrive. I must admit, I'm not the most patient person in the universe. I keep saying to myself over and over "Patience is a virtue". My granddad always said that. The Lord has taught me through this pregnancy that yes, Sandi you must indeed learn to be patient. It is not about MY timing. Always always HIS perfect timing and HIS perfect plan.

However, of course my lack of this virtue they call patience has had me trying everything over the past few days to naturally induce labor. Go figure. I desperately want to try and go into labor on my own so they won't have to induce and do possible c-section next week, but that may not be the plan. Yesterday I tried everything. I mean everything people. Everything except castor oil, which I will not do - yuck, and spicy foods. Nothing. Nada.

So now I'm just tired and still waiting...may go eat eggplant parm again tomorrow. Hot wings? Walk some more. Organize some more. Clean some more. Nest some more. I didn't even think I'd get everything done but see the Lord knew "the plan" and now I've gotten everything accomplished that I needed to. [which almost makes it harder on me because I'm not a "sit still" kind of person. I always have to be doing something! Now, what is there to do but WAIT? Everyone says I should rest. I know, I know and oh I have done that too].

There are still a few things I need to hang on the wall in the nursery, but most I can't do until after his newborn photos are made. So maybe I'll get around to snapping a few pics and posting them tomorrow. Who wants to see? We've spent so much time on it - doing a little bit along here and there - and finally it's finished, ready and waiting on Mr. Cade.

We're ALL ready and waiting on Mr. Cade.
Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes. Ya'll are too sweet.
Will keep you updated!


  1. Aw, I can only imagine how excited y'all are! Would love to see the nursery. Keeping you in my prayers!

  2. You sound like me. We rode in my husband's truck to dinner last night hoping to bounce the baby out. We had Chinese, but I couldn't make myself get it spicy because then it just wouldn't taste good! It is going to be 70 here today so we are going for a long walk tonight! I know exactly how you feel.
