First and foremost, YES, I am still pregnant. 6 days from my due date and time is moving at a snail’s pace. But…I digress…
I’ve decided to try and find the joy in these last few days of Little Man being an only child. As exhausting as it is getting out and about, I’m trying to do special things with him daily: mommy and son dates, if you will 🙂 Plus, the more I can walk around and let gravity do it’s thing, the better!
I took him to the aquarium for his first visit earlier this week. He wasn’t too enamored with anything in particular. I mainly just let him wander around at his own leisure and I followed closely behind. He was, albeit briefly, interested in the sharks OR it was simply the fact that I set his snack bowl on the tank ledge so that he’d have to walk over there to grab it. Regardless, I was certain to snap a picture.
We may be excited to welcome Baby Girl to the family but this Little Man will always be the one who made me a momma.
Here’s to the next chapter….
Until next time Mommas 🙂
The rumors you’ve heard are true. I can confirm that I am, indeed, STILL pregnant! Ugh! 38 weeks and more exhausted and the most uncomfortable I’ve been in my entire life.
For all my fellow Friends fanatics…this about sums it up….
You see, Little Man arrived at 36 weeks so I never got the pleasure of experiencing the last month of pregnancy that I had heard so many women complain about. Well, this time around, I’m in the thick of it. The complete 60-70%-effaced-and-1cm-dilated thick of it. Yes, that’s where my doc told me I was at may appointment 6 days ago. Let’s hope I’ve progressed a bit more when I go to the doc tomorrow.
I’m trying to rest in gratefulness that Baby Girl has chosen to stay in longer than her big brother…I know it’s what’s best for her. Not to mention, I’ve had a very healthy pregnancy thus far and no signs (knock on wood) of preeclampsia which I dealt with with Little Man.
The bright side of this time is that we are about as prepared as we can be for baby’s arrival. The nursery is ready (except for the rocking chair that hasn’t arrived yet), the freezer is stocked with food, the hospital bags are packed and our list of cleaning projects to finish is nearly complete.
On the business front, I’ve worked hard on getting some final few client meetings in this week before Baby Girl comes and I won’t be available for a while. Thank goodness for a great team of consultants who will keep trucking along while I enjoy quiet time at home after her arrival.
Hopefully my next post will be all about a beautiful baby girl entering the world in a very quick and pain-free fashion. Here’s hoping 😉
Until next time Mommas 🙂
