Now that Peter and I are pretty much settled in our house, my life has been consumed with thoughts and plans of baby baby baby. It’s the only it thing that is coming up and so it consumes most of my life right now and it’s not even born yet! Although, I have been working a TON and that keeps me occupied most days. Otherwise I am just waiting patiently, or rather impatiently, for baby time to come. We have a nice supply of diapers, every piece of new clothing, bedding or blanket is washed and ready in the nursery. We have our crib and cradle ready. The car seat is all set to be installed in the car. The only thing that hasn’t come in yet is the stroller. It is ordered and paid for and should be ready for pick up mid-October. I love love love my car seat and stroller combo by the way! They are red and black and suit me perfectly. Plus the stroller is made for jogging, so I can take the baby out on runs with me!! As soon as I get into good enough shape for running that is LOL Anyway, I bought the Graco lotus car seat and the Valco tri-mode stroller.
I seriously feel as if I am ready. I am so excited to meet our new little addition. I have decided for sure which day will be my last at work and am almost ready to start counting down the days. It may be cutting it a little close, but November 9th will be my last day of work, given baby doesn’t have other ideas and comes early. Due date is November 15th so I should be alright. They say that the first baby often comes late anyway. Although I wouldn’t be opposed to it being a bit early. Just as long as it doesn’t come October 22-24 because Mom and I really want to go to Great Falls, MT those days. If for some crazy reason I do go into labour while we are in the states, we will throw everything in the car and safely speed our way back into Canada. Great Falls is only about 1.5 hours from the border anyway. I’ll just keep my legs crossed haha
Babies seem to be in every corner of my life as well. I have been visiting my friend, who had her baby in July, quite a bit and I am finding it harder and harder to give her back her daughter each time. She’s so cute and adorable and my motherly instincts purr while I hold her. Another one of my online friends had her baby daughter on September 17th, after being almost 3 weeks past due. Although she spent a few days on oxygen in the hospital, she’s happy and healthy and home with her family now. Then I went onto Facebook this morning and saw that Lissy and her husband welcomed their son this morning!! Congratulations to the start of their new little family!!! Ah so many babies and so much joy.
It’s my turn next and I feel like it can’t come soon enough. I am getting antsy. Although, I am definitely trying to treasure every minute of sleep that I can get these days. I know it will be a precious commodity soon enough. It will definitely be hard for me but the joys of motherhood will outweigh the loss of rest, I hope. My goal is to try my best to sleep/nap when baby sleeps.
So anyway, that is where I’m at right now. I am feeling fantastic for being almost 33 weeks pregnant and I really have no complaints. I truly hope the remainder of this pregnancy sails smoothly by! I am sure that I’m starting to annoying my friends with my constant baby talk and regaling of my baby related dreams. Crazy stuff happening in my head in the middle of the night let me tell you hahaha. Here is my 31 week bump photo
