There is no sign that labor is imminent. In fact if I wasn’t keeping track of how many weeks I probably would not be quite as antsy. Overall I am having a pretty decent last month (36-40 weeks). Sure, I get what they lovingly refer to as “lightening crotch” from time to time (when baby’s head hits a nerve down below and down shoots an incredible sharp pain – ouch!), it is pretty hilarious to try and see me roll out of bed and I cannot say that I am not ready to be done…
I am so so ready to meet my little boy! Gary and I both are getting quite excited. Hey, 9 months is a long wait, we are ready! And our friends and family are clearly ready as well as the texts and phone calls are coming in — asking about how I am doing and if I think it will be soon. And what do I think? I think it will be 2-3 more weeks. I don’t expect to go early, not that I wouldn’t love to move this right along, but I am fairly content to just wait it out. It is quiet around the house, just myself and the husband still trying to prep things here and there and enjoying spending time together. We know it will be busy once Leif arrives on the scene so the quiet is nice but since we both like to keep busy we are suffering from a slight bit of boredom.
I am still hoping to post up some photos of Leif’s fun little wardrobe and it is my plan to take photos of some of my favorite outfits later this week to post soon.
Otherwise this is a pretty short post, just hanging out playing the waiting game!
