Hopefully last post before I become a mom

Well, we are approaching 40 weeks on Thursday and the time has finally come to await the arrival of our little girl. Gosh, how many emotions can you really feel at the same time, didn't know it was possible until this week. I'm up/down/backwards/sideways/etc stomach is either braxton hicking, moving around or contracting so hard to tell the difference at this point. Am I ready? I am excited/nervous and mostly scared out of my wits end that something will go wrong. We had a great pregnancy in the fact that all was healthy up to this point, I want to keep it that way and until I hear her breathe for the first time, I will be a ball of nerves then I will want to make sure she is healthy and I know she will be happy.

I realize I cannot predict all of these things so I am just hoping for the best and doing what I can do to stay sane and calm.

Been thinking a lot about patience lately since everywhere i go and everyone i meet really tries to take it from me. I think I am a very patient person and in the long run it helps me out, but why are so many people in a rush, rude and just don't realize that when you push people they will get upset. As the holidays come, patience is necessary to deal with people, traffic and life. I am holding onto my patience for dear life and only hope that I win this battle with the world.

Okay, think i am going to have to come up with a new way to look at being balanced because it is impossible to find my balance in both senses with this belly of mine. I can calm my mind for minutes then it starts racing again and again about everything that is coming up and forget about balancing my body, our little girl has taken control of that part of it. I hope I can find a new way to balance once she is here and we can enjoy our time together. I'm so excited and scared at the same time, good reasons why i can't seem to get balanced.

37 weeks

We made it to saftey zone, today we are 37 weeks and one day!! Our little girl's lungs are developed and she is baked for the most part. Would like her to come out when she is ready but not to far after our due date. Been thinking about delivery more and more and imagining her with us and how that will work out. We are just so excited!! Here's to our little girl and making it to her saftey zone.

Feet and hands

Well, the countdown has officially started! We had the shower and we have gotten organized to the point that I feel good about the baby being born. Now I just need to worry about my swollen feet and hands. Lucky for me, I am going to spa night at an awesome place and getting a hand/feet massage, waahooo, here's to 37 weeks and making it to saftey zone this week.

Butt in gear!

Okay so I keep on saying that after the baby shower I will get my butt in gear well, regear and start working on the baby's room again. The shower is this weekend so now is the time to start. Okay sounds good, but where am I going to get the energy? Guess I will have to work on the reserves and get it from there.

Here's to crunch time and preparing the house/life/etc for the baby's arrival.

Getting closer

We are at our 36 week mark this week and only a month to go. wahhooo! We are so excited and now I have to get remotivated so we can get the rest of the stuff done. It has been increasing more difficult to get around and I am less motivated to do so I need to suck it up and get my bootie in gear for our little girl's arrival!
