That’s right, I’m 39 weeks and in one short week we’ll have a newborn in our arms; exciting and frightening all at the same time. We’ve got a busy week ahead of us and we’re just hoping that this baby can hold on 7 more days. Of course at that point, I’ll do just about anything to get him out.
I’ve experienced more pain this pregnancy than any time before and sitting just about does me in; which makes a three hour block of church real enjoyable. I’m hoping this is something that will magically vanish when the baby delivers but I just had a friend tell me that her tailbone hurt for almost a year after delivery. Poke my eyes out now! Aside from being uncomfortable while sitting I’m in pretty good shape. My clothes are all getting a little small and if I had much longer I’d have to do a little shopping but I’m okay hanging out in yoga pants for the week; so if you run into me, don’t judge!
This is the week I’m going to get done all the things I should’ve done a while ago – like get the car seat out of the attic and cleaned up. Charge the camera batteries. Find a good book to indulge in and throw some things in a bag for the just-in-case-he decides-to-arrive-early moment. It’s going to be a good week, I can feel it!
