Now, having said that, P-Nut: it is A-ok by momma if you want to come out anytime now!
I swear, within the last week and a half I went from "this pregnancy thing is a breeze" to "most uncomfortable I have ever been in my life!" That is exactly what they say, as soon as baby gets in the "go" position, your whole body changes. I feel pressure constantly, I am having Braxton Hicks contractions all day and I can't get comfortable when I lay down. TheBump.com says baby is the size of a watermelon now. And that's exactly what it feels like. We go to the doctor tomorrow to see if I have dilated anymore. Last week I was at 1 cm. No real contractions so far.
Ryan and I both feel like we are officially ready for baby to be here. Yesterday Ryan installed a carbon monoxide detector in the nursery and this past weekend we went shopping and got all the things we still needed. Tonight Ryan will be creating our wills.
I got a glimpse of what life would be like if we have a girl. Our good friends Tim and Carma had their son last week. Their son was 6 weeks early (she was due about 10 days after me) but is doing fine. They named him Jennings and we are excited that he and P-Nut will grow up together. Once we heard everything was ok, Ryan said: "If we have a girl, that Jennings better not touch her!" Ha! I just laughed. I always knew Daddy would be protective.
I feel like I am finally starting to nest now. And since I don't have a real baby yet, I have started nesting with my furbabies. Both are scheduled for a full grooming and deshedding appointment as well as updating their shots. Doggies gots to be ready for baby too.
Our bags are packed and the car seat bases are installed! P-Nut we can't wait to meet you!!
