This is the week!

Oh my, I am a huge ball of nerves right now! It's only Monday and I am already freaking out a bit. I know what to expect and I am so, so excited to meet her. But it's so different when you know the day and you know what the c-section is all about, as opposed to the first time when it was all a surprise.

I also find myself incredibly sad. The end of a pregnancy is such a bittersweet time for me. So much joy to meet her and so sad to no longer be pregnant. What a roller coaster of emotions! I am also worried about being away from my G while in the hospital. I know he is in great hands with his Nana, but I haven't been away from him overnight ever. I know I will be missing him a lot.

I'll take a final bump picture on Friday before the c-section, but this will be my last update.

38 weeks!

How far along.... 38 weeks and 3 days.

How am I feeling.... Besides the nervous/anxious energy, I feel great! I have mild heartburn and I'm peeing a lot. Otherwise I can't complain. I walked around Disneyland all day Saturday, and besides the exhaustion at the end of the day, I did fine. My massage was amazing - I made myself a promise to do those more often. I'm looking forward to the mani/pedi tomorrow, and I'm paying extra for a longer foot massage hehe.

How is baby doing.... Everything looked great at Friday's appointment so I think she's a happy camper in there.

Milestones, etc....
It's the week of her arrival, so I guess that's a pretty big milestone :) The car seat is installed and my hospital bag is packed. We have everything we need, plus more. Our family, friends and co-workers have been so generous. I feel very loved.


  1. Good luck! Can't wait to see her!

  2. You look amazing my dear. I'm so excited to see her pretty little face and see G as a big brother. :)
