Holy Cow!!! I cannot believe that my countdown to Evy says 16 days today. SiXtEeN DaYs!!! I can't believe this pregnancy is coming to an end. As cool as it's been to experience all the things that come with it, baby movements, growing stomach, preparing for a new addition to the family, I am SO ready for it to be over with.
I'm just not one of those girls who adores being pregnant and would do it the rest of my life. I'm ready to see my little girl's face and start loving on her! I cannot get comfortable no matter what I do. Nothing fits me at all and I refuse to buy clothes to get me through the next two weeks when really she could be here any day now. I'm tired of having to be cautious of everything I eat and drink. I just want my healthy baby girl.
Zach is so ready for her to be here too! He has his daddy/daughter time every evening when we go to bed where he just lays his hand on my stomach and feels her swishing around inside and talks to her. Yeah, it's pretty sweet. She is going to be a daddy's girl for sure. I have a feeling I'm the one who is going to be laying down the law in this household.
People keep asking me what I need and if I have everything ready to go. I need a baby and I'm ready to head up the the hospital. Bags are packed and in the car. I'm just waiting for the first contraction. Which is scaring me big time. It's the waiting around for something to happen, not knowing how it's going to happen, that is keeping me a little crazy and anxious.
I'm still attending work every day even though it is getting harder and harder. It's not the getting up early thing that's a drag. It's the sitting at a desk all day in a chair that is uncomfortable and it feels like your stomach is being pushed up to your chin. And the fact that I have to tell people, "hey, if you see my stomach hanging out will you tell me? I can't see it."
I had my friends and family baby shower a couple of weeks ago that I've been meaning to post about but several of my nights were spent watching the Oklahoma City Thunder play in the NBA finals and that was obviously more important :) Really wanted them to win and very proud of how far they made it. Next year! I thought for sure some of those games were going to throw me into labor. They were just too close and too intense. I'm very excited to see a preseason game when they play in Tulsa in October.
Thanks to my sister and cousin for putting this shower together for me. It was a really nice shower and something I had been looking forward to since the first positive pregnancy test.
Here's a glimpse of 37 weeks.
Ready for my doctors appointment on Tuesday. They are doing another ultrasound to check on Evelyn's growth so I'm excited to get to see her again. Just wish it was in person :)
P.S - People of Wal*Mart, please do not slow down and yell at me from your car while I'm walking into the store, "I bet you're ready!" and smile at me like we are friends. We're not.
