Before we start, how crazy cute is that pea coat?! Osh Kosh sent over a little surprise package of some baby man clothes from their holiday collection and it’s all. so. perfect.
He’s fully cooked! It’s kind of freaking me out to think that little guy could come any time and he’d be good to go. Zoinks. The good news is he’s head-down, according to my doc. So everybody is in position and ready to rumble. The bad news is that his feet and hands are seemingly permanently trying to bust out of the left side of my abdomen, which feels pretty creepy and looks even creepier. Imagine a tiny foot stretching a blown-up balloon from the inside out. You get the picture.
But! I feel good, mostly! And I’m leaving it at that. No, it’s not comfortable being 9 months pregnant but who really cares at this point. We’re in the home stretch. Fingers crossed that I get a few more little projects done in the guy’s nursery before he’s here. At the very least, we have a carseat installed so we get that one little gold star on our parenting chart. Yay us! xoxo
EATING ohhhhh so much leftover Halloween candy, but I’m pretty sure that has nothing to do with the baby.
DRINKING coconut water. Who do I think I am?
READING back through all of the pages I dog eared or underlined in our baby books. Because, ya know, that’s what’ll teach me to be a good mom right? (Just nod and agree please.)
WANTING the feeling in my fingertips back. Remember that whole carpal tunnel thing? Just getting worse.
SLEEPING shockingly well! I’m starting to wonder if some of the pregnancy horror stories I’ve been told were told to me by overly dramatic people…
WEARING anything tight. Because when I wear tight things people tell me I look smaller. And then I win the game.
FEELING scaaaaared. What are we going to do with a baby?!?!
LOVING the thought that all moms have done what I’m doing right now. As in, every single woman who has ever had a child. They’ve all been pregnant, they’ve all been through labor, they’ve all been through the first few scary and sleepy weeks with a newborn, and they’ve all come out the other side. It’s a comforting thought.
