Just got out of the shower. Throwing some last minute things in the hospital bag and heading out the door. It is a snowstorm here. We decided to leave abit early so we could take our time on the slippery roads. I am very very nervous now.. Surgery is a very scary thing. Next time I post I will be a mum! Stay tuned for cute pictures of baby!

#Appoitments #OB #Pregnant #pregnancy #39 weeks
Today my OB appointment went rather unpleasantly.
Me and baby are healthy and I know that’s all that matters in the end, but a grumpy OB and not having things explained fully or having them switch dates around with no warning is no fun. I later had a emotional breakdown at wal-mart and refused to eat McDonalds. The life of a pregnant woman is exhausting sometimes. We than had a meeting with a Government worker and I was left confused and frazzeled about money situations. My brain is about to shut down due to emotional overload. I just want to eat squares and lay in bed for the rest of the day..
All in all, what I’m trying to say is.. I just want my baby outside of my tummy so I can cuddle him/her and have lots of baby kisses all the time. Is that really too much to ask?
Tonight is the last night we will spend in the apartment as a baby-free couple. The next time we spend the night in our bed we will have a child between us to cuddle. We will be crawling out of bed at all hours to hold our crying child. We will use our stove to sanitize bottles, and use the tub to bathe our little one! We are heading to my mothers house tomorrow to spend the next week or so.. We have our family Christmas on Sunday, and on Monday we see our OB, and Tuesday we meet the surgeon. The nurse on the phone said Wednesday will most likely be the day we get to meet the little one if he or she has not come out yet! Than, because I am a c-section we have decided to stay at my mums for a week because our apartment is 3 floors up, and I won’t be able to do the stairs right away. I am starting to ramble. The point of this post was to say how I just cleaned the whole apartment from top to bottom. Scrubbed every surface, and made sure everything is in its place. I even organized and cleaned the fridge. I know I won’t have the time or the energy to do it when we get home and I don’t want to be living in a disgusting house the first couple weeks home. Plus it will be nice knowing we are bringing the baby home to a clean environment. Now, I’m going to fold our clothes and get them all ready to be packed in bags for tomorrow. I just can’t feel prepared enough. I feel like there is still so much to be done, even though we are really ready.. Well, as ready as we are gunna be :)

#pregnancy #update #38 weeks
It has just dawned on me that we only have a week left with this big ole belly of mine. In one week I won’t be pregnant anymore. As much as that excites me and I can’t wait to meet my little son or daughter, I will miss my belly terribly. I feel like we have gone through so much together. I like having my child inside me too. All safe and snug. Having him/her running around in the world makes me nervous.. Am I going to be one of those mum’s who is certain that everything is out to get my baby? Oh, probably. haha
38 weeks. I am really sore. I have leg cramps all the time and I have pinched a nerve in my hip as well. By night the pain in my legs is so bad it bring me to tears. I live with a hot water bottle attached to me all the time. It is my savior. Patrick has been a sweet heart though and his massages make me smile. He listens to my complaints over and over again and always tries to make me feel better. I have a wonderful man in my life.
