That is the question I have asked myself several times over the past nine months. I just can't believe it's almost coming to an end. It will then be the beginning of our next step in our lives together. Last week I started my weekly visits with the doctor and tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon is my next visit. They will be checking to see if I am dilating and all that cool stuff that happens with labor. My braxton hicks are getting to be more frequent and stronger which at times can be uncomfortable. Sleeping is becoming more and more difficult. I toss and turn all night long with pillows flying everywhere and my body aching with every move. Plus my head is full of thoughts of this baby coming and that keeps me from getting restful sleep. Jason and I went to our birthing class on Saturday all day long. It was the best thing for us to just do the one day class versus the 4-6 week class. Most of the information is stuff I have already read or knew. It was nice to go to the hospital and get a tour of all the rooms and get comfortable with that aspect of what is ahead of us. My coworkers threw a baby shower for me last Thursday and they gave us a huge gift certificate to Babies R Us. So, yesterday Jason and I went to use it and came out with a carseat and stroller. We are very grateful for that and it's one less thing for us to worry about. Here are some pictures of me after I got off work. Everyone at work made a fuss about what I was wearing and here it is. By the end of the day my toes were killing me and all I kept telling myself was "This is nothing compared to labor." But darn the swelling was really getting to me and my feet were screaming to get out of the boots. Next time I wear them it will be for a short amount of time and not and entire work day!! I hope you enjoy and next time it won't take so long to write.
