|Our little guys in their new home|
My to-do lists have all been crossed off and completed.
I vacuumed the house, mopped floors, baked a pie, washed and hung out laundry, finished projects, washed many dishes, and have had my hospital bag packed for over a week...
Am I nesting?
Is Little Mack soon to arrive?
As of yesterday, I am 39 weeks. All my baby newsletters and apps tell me "Baby is full term"... "Baby is ready to be born!"
I was asked yesterday via my pregnancy app, "Would you like to report a birth and share your story?"
Of course, I would, but Little Mack enjoys where he/she is, so no, thank you. I'll get back to you on that.
I have hit "Mama-mode." I am completely fine with wearing leggings as pants because they are stretchy and comfortable. I used dry shampoo on my hair in lieu of washing it this morning. (Or maybe it's just the "I'm-nine-months-pregnant-and-I'm-ready-for-Baby" mode?)
I feel good. I really do.
Sleep is still hit and miss. At my last appointment, I asked my midwife, "Do you have any advice on getting better sleep?" She responded, "Not being pregnant."
Last night, my husband and I went to our church to get our picture taken for the new directory. To be funny and cover our bases, he had written for How many people? "2-3." When the photographer looked at our form she asked, "There aren't three of you?" Nope. Just two. To be honest, newborns aren't the cutest in pictures, but I was really hoping that there would be three of us. Nope. Just two. I have also been feeling rather large and blah, so I didn't like any of the pictures of me. My husband on the other hand, super handsome and photogenic. We balanced out.
This late in the game, everyone who sees me asks, "Ohh, no Baby yet?" I may use my friend Mary Lou's comeback she told me yesterday, "Why yes, I did have the Baby, but I enjoyed being pregnant so much, I shoved the Baby back in for a little while longer!"
C'mon, people-- all ya'll will know when I have this Baby.
I will be posting waaaay too many pictures on various social media platforms.
How would I be able to keep such exciting and monumental news to myself??
I'm sure there is something I should be doing or buying that I haven't already done, but I am feeling ready. No one is ever really ready, but I feel calm. I'm definitely not ready to be sleep deprived or experience all the fun postpartum recovery I've read about, but I am absolutely ready to meet our Little Mack.
I had another dream Little Mack was a boy.
For real, I am going to be so surprised if Little Mack is a girl... and there's no reason why. I have no idea what Little Mack is. I do know that he/she is what God has planned for us and that is really exciting. <3
