Tamera Mowry, who is expecting her first child–a son–any minute now, says she is trying to be patient, but with her due date looming tomorrow and no sign of a baby yet, she’s growing very impatient.
“If I have yet to learn patience, my son is in the process of teaching me now. I have learned that I am not in control and that he will decide when he comes. However, I have not been as receptive as I want to be to his timing. If I am completely honest … at this stage, I want this baby OUT!” she wrote on her blog.
Mowry says sleepless nights are a common occurrence for her these days and is eager to be done with a pregnancy which has seemed to stretch out forever. Although it’s not uncommon for first-time moms to give birth a little later than expected, she says she’s already looked up natural ways to get labor in motion.
Her twin sister, Tia, says that they’re alike in more ways than one: neither of them can take much pain. She joked recently that she wasn’t sure Tamera would be able to handle giving birth.
“She is my sister and we can’t take pain. Pain and us, we just don’t mix!” she said. “She is trying to be brave, which is good….but I don’t think she is going to make it.”
These days, doctors won’t let a pregnancy go too far past the due date for fear of the baby getting too big, so if labor doesn’t start soon, she may have to be induced. Her official due date is tomorrow, October 30th.
