I'm there.

Thursday, June 23, 2011

I think I finally hit the wall. I'm just about ready to call it quits on this pregnancy, you know, like I have a choice.

I don't care if we don't have everything put away for Baby Love.

I don't care if we haven't transitioned Isaac to his bedroom [yeah, you guys didn't know we're still bedsharing did you?]

I don't care that Isaac's "Big Brother" shirt hasn't been started, let alone finished.

I don't care that I still have half of a rag quilt to cut.

I don't care that my maternity leave still hasn't been finalized by HR.

I don't care that we don't have a hospital bag packed.

I don't care that we don't have a game plan for who will be responsible for Isaac when the time comes [due to multiple options, so thankfully we're more than covered].

I just don't care.

I'm ready to meet Baby Love.

I'm ready to move on to a family of 4.

I'm ready to share his name, with pride and to know the little one with the moniker.

I'm ready to snuggle a newborn again.

I'm ready to nibble on milk drunk cheeks.

I'm ready to learn the differences between my boys and enjoy the similarities.

I'm just so ready.

To be completely honest, I kind of expect this guy to make his appearance on Sunday. Let's look at the numbers.

Isaac :: due May 3rd :: born at 39w, April 26th a Sunday.
BLove :: due July 3rd :: potentially born at 39w, June 26th, a Sunday.

I know that going early with one child has no bearing on subsequent, but I can't help but look at those dates and be hopeful for this weekend. My midwife was surprised to feel some change from last week, as Baby Love has moved lower and there was some dilation, just like I was at my 38w appt with Isaac. I'm all about labor starting on Saturday, as opposed to the long drawn out evening of contractions I had with Isaac starting Friday night, and having another early morning Sunday delivery. A weekend baby would just be so convenient for friends and family too! I'm even going to go so far as to repeat the shopping trip I had with my Mom to purchase a "going home" outfit on Saturday, just for consistency sake.

So here's to a hopefully eventful weekend.

Leah, I am right there with you! I am so ready to be done with this pregnancy and to move on to snuggling up lots of love from baby. The end is always so hard. So uncomfortable. And can make one so very antsy...
Here is to both of us bringing new little men in to this world - very soon - like this weekend soon!
Best Wishes!

Oh, Leah...I hope Baby Love makes his appearance this weekend! Mostly for you, but selfishly, because I can't wait to see what he looks like and what his name is ;)

Praying for you, sweet one!

Oh, Leah, I am right there with you.

Baby's due date is Saturday. I am so hopeful he (or she!) will come this weekend... I've been off of work for 3 weeks now and all of the waiting is driving me INSANE.

Fingers crossed for two quick & easy deliveries this weekend!! :)

you crack me up. I love how you have the birth all planned out to be on Sunday, and hopefully it comes true for the perfect numbers game. But don't be too bummed if not and try to enjoy the last few days no matter what.

I'm in MN this week visiting my older sister and totally thought of you when I was at Target HQ earlier today (you used to work there, right?). There were people with Target badges EVERYWHERE. Anyway, I hope this weekend is THE weekend! GL!

I can't wait for you, Leah! Such a sweet, exciting time in your life. I'm praying for you girl.

So excited for you Leah! I remember hitting that point where I didn't care if everything was done - I just wanted him here! I'll be thinking of you all day tomorrow, hoping that Baby Love really does stick with the "plan". :)
