This past weekend we finally managed to get quite a bit done that I had on my list of to-dos: shopping for some things for the hospital bag, a few last minute items for the nursery, and we took our hospital tour on Sunday! Ahh – a sigh of relief! I still come up with a new list every day and I keep thinking – “OKAY, he can’t can’t come until I get ____ done!” Ha! In that case, I’ll be pregnant forever. Just gotta let some stuff go! And if we don’t have something that is a necessity – we will just get it when we realize, right?!
Mother’s Day was wonderful. It felt super weird to celebrate it for myself! I just don’t feel like a Mom yet, if that makes sense! I do but I don’t! I’m in a weird in between stage, ya know? Nate bought me tulips (my favorite) and took me out to brunch at First Watch before our hospital tour. Later in the afternoon we went over to my Mother-in-law’s to see her and my Mom! It was so nice to be able to SEE my MOM on Mother’s Day. That hasn’t happened in a long time! I got the chance to get in the pool while I was over there and it was GLORIOUS. I laid on my stomach for the first time in about 8 months. It was the most comfortable and relaxed I’ve been in so, so long. I could have stayed in there forever.
Well – this could be the last time I blog before this cute little bebe wiggle worm is born! I can’t believe we’re so close. I can’t believe we’re about to be parents. The time has gone by so fast and so slow at the same time. I am so ready for this. I’m “prepared” but I know there is just no way to know what this whole labor and delivery event will truly be like – but I’m ready because I know I’ve got Nate to support me and love me through it. He is going to be the best Dad and I can’t *wait* to see him hold his baby for the first time. I am so lucky to be his wife and I’m so blessed to have him as my support system. I’m so excited for our little family to become 3! <3
