Oh, say hello to my last week of pregnancy!
Where has the time gone? This picture was taken at my last doctor's appointment before Little J gets here! Reality has finally hit in and I can't believe I will have a baby in just a few short days. To say I am freaking out would be an understatement! There are so many things I feel like I still have left to do, and things I wish I would have done (like get maternity pictures taken!), but he is coming whether we are ready or not. No backing out now! I'm sure all you mommy's out there know the feeling!
I am so nervous for the whole labor experience. I know that my body is physically and mentally able to do this, but it doesn't stop me from jumping to every worst possible scenario. I wake up every thirty minutes from a mini-nightmare about some crazy problem that arises. It's just that my pregnancy has been so emotionally trying with all the problems we have had, so I find myself expecting the worst. However, we do have faith that everything will work out how it is meant to!
I asked Scotty if he was nervous and he said, "Why would I be nervous? I get to hold my baby boy soon." Heart melt. I think he has the attitude I need! (But on the other hand, he isn't the one who has to push a small human out his hoo-hah.)
I know that all the nerves and stress of the last 9 months, and particularly this last week as I prepare for labor, will all be worth it when we get to hold our sweet boy for the first time. I have never been so anxious to meet someone in my entire life. Wish us luck!
