Subira Swahili for Patience
“If you want to go fast, go alone,
if you want to go far, go together”
“Look at me for a moment and please tell me how you really are?” were Pascal’s words in the evening on the 19th of June. It’s been a hot Monday evening and we just settled into the quiet after being out to refresh. Pascal went with Lea to the outdoor pool while I was walking labs on the running track next to the pool.
Here I am walking labs at 42 weeks. I was convinced that the latest day of arrival of our new family member would be no later than the full moon on the 9th of June.
Day after day passed with me feeling physically rather better than worse, dropping into the deepest sleep all throughout pregnancy and getting more and more annoyed by people asking the f****** obvious: “You’re still pregnant?”.
