Holy belly, batman
I actually think I am ready now for this little guy to get here. Not because the nursery is ready (because it really isn't) or we have all the baby things we need but because I KNOW. I know what the newborn stage is like, I am not scared or anxious, I am just ready to start the love. And sleepless nights. And the little coos. Bring it on.
Also, I must confess, I am a bit uncomfortable. I have to sit in a quite un-ladylike position to allow the belly to fall to where it wants to go thus allowing me to breathe a little easier. I feel so grateful to be carrying a new life, something that we created, but darn it all, let's do this!
My OB said I will probably go early like with Anna (she was 8 days early) and that labor will actually go by quicker (about 10 hours with Anna). So in a couple weeks, that bag will be packed, car seat installed and soon...very soon, we will be a family of four.
