All I Can Do Now Is Wait

It's almost midnight so I'll just pretend it's Friday already.

I currently look like this:

Yes my friends.  You wanted to see pregnant.  I'm pregnant.  No more cut belly.  Just the really huge one. Really huge.

I don't know what time my surgery will be.  I just know that I can't sleep.

I've been told to call between 4 and 5 for them to tell me what time in the morning to come.  Of course my alarm is set for 4 though I doubt I will need the clock to wake me.

I know it's not a big deal to most.  Women get pregnant all the time.  Babies are born all the time.

But if every mother loved their children the way I love mine, the world would be AWESOME.

I love my boy.  I loved him before I knew him. 

Lael is super excited. She asked me if we would bring Bubby home by Tuesday.  I told her as long as he was healthy we should.

She gave a fist pump followed by a "yesssss" and then proceeded to ask if I she could take him in for Show and Share on Tuesday. 

That girl tickles me.

Well I'm sitting here on my bed.  My suitcase opened and mostly packed...all I need to put in there now is my Notebook that I'm currently using to type this.

Wish me luck my friends.

I will post pictures as soon as I can because we all know once he's born yall will not longer care about me.

It will be all about this bundle I am about to hold, and cuddle, and smell.

Oh I can smell him already..............

I'm Hanging In There

Hi friends,

I know I've been a bit of a ghost the past few weeks.  I'm ok.  I'm surviving.  I'm having kick-ass contractions.  But that just means I'm that much closer to meeting the newest member of our family.

I went to the doctors yesterday.  He is head down and over 6lbs.  The doctors predict he'll be 8lbs. 


Lael was 7lbs 4.3 oz so 8lbs seems like a big jump.  Maybe I'm being paranoid.

I spent last weekend in PA at one of my best friends wedding. Lael was a flower girl.  I was supposed to be a bridesmaid but seriously.  Too pregnant.

 It was beautiful.

I wore a green maxi dress and my hubby said I looked like a 2-liter of 7-UP.  He's a jerk like that.

I'm happy. I'm nervous.  I'm not really ready.  But I am soooo ready.

Next Friday people.  That's 9 days left.

That's like no time at all.
