7 weeks (give or take) and our sweet little boy will be here. I'm so ready (well not really, I need my baby shower because I don't have a thing for him yet besides furniture-but other than that I'm ready).
I've been getting the tummy stares a lot lately, everywhere we go people ask when I'm due. I have to be honest-I'm soaking those moments in. I used to be that lady-gawking at every pregnant person I saw...now I'm 'the' lady getting all this belly attention. :)
My mom bought me my hospital clothes the other day, some nightgowns and a cotton robe. Crazy to think we are that close that things are being bought for that...eeekkkk!!! :)
Sleep is still hard, some nights (good nights) I wake every two hours just to pee...bad nights I see every hour of the clock because I'm either peeing or my hips are throbbing....and even worse nights I wake up at 2-3 wide awake and can't go back to sleep. I'm certain God is preparing me for a little night owl :)
Cravings are pretty much the same-I can't eat too much because I feel like my stomach is so smushed it must fill up faster? Not quite sure? But I'm loving spaghetti (which I was not a huge fan before pregnancy, I'm not a big red sauce girl...I love Alfredo...but Miles loves spaghetti with meat sauce) :)....grapes are a must have...cereal has become a yummy snack...still watermelon.
My appt on Monday went well...I go back in two weeks then I will start my weekly checks. :)
I'm not quite sure what I did to deserve all of this, why our prayers were finally answered, why God has chosen us to be Miles's parents but I couldn't be more grateful for this whole experience. There were times I often wondered if pregnancy was ever going to happen...it's still all so surreal to think I'm almost done and so close to have my son (MY SON!!!!!) in my arms!! I'm so elated. :)
