A quick post

I wanted to write a really quick post to let all of you know that I'm still here - and big boy is still cooking!

It's been a crazy week and will continue to be crazy until I deliver (or so it seems...) I've been trying to wrap things up at work and make an organized list of what will need to be followed up and I'm trying to do the same thing at home for my mom when she comes to stay with YaYa.... There are way to many details in a person's life to communicate - like what YaYa will and will not eat in her lunch or how we pick out clothes to wear...

I am also avioding most thoughts about what is about to happen. Emotionally I'm just not ready to walk into that hospital and have a baby. I am very. very ready for Big Boy to be here - I'm just not ready for the actual labor and delivery part. In my mind that's still part of Ellie's story that I'm not ready to share.

(Changing subjects completely...) But on a slightly vain note - everyone has been telling me how great I look lately! That sure does boost a more than slightly rotund girl's mood!!!

Many thoughts to you and yours.. I agree there are way too many details in life to be able to comminucate with others. No one can do it like you! ;)

I am so excited that you're getting nearer and nearer - I hope that this last few weeks provides you with that sense of preparedness that you deserve! I bet you're just glowing!

I am so happy for you. I can imagine it is kinda hard right now - but wow - you have been so amazing this journey.

Enjoy the glow!

I cannot believe that you are full term! Congrats!

As far as the labor & delivery go, I kind of felt the same way, but I wound up with a c/s anyway.

Honestly, the whole in the hospital, with a live baby thing... It's rough. I think I'm still reeling. But you will get through it. It will hurt, no doubt, but you will overcome that grief and find the joy. I know you will get to see Ellie in your son's face and, while it will break your heart, it will mend it a little too.

I'm sure you look fabulous, and isn't it nice to hear it?! I appreciate your anxiety re labor and delivery. Already sending positive thoughts your way that everything goes as smoothly as possible.
