Getting anxious for another one of these

097

These past couple weeks have been busy just finishing projects that I had on the to do list before baby comes and since that date always seems sooooo far away I've procrastinated, but when I reached 37 weeks I decided that date actually might come, so I had better get goin. The weather also kicked up like 100 degrees and I'm always a sweaty mess, so we play at the pool each and every day, sometimes twice or like today 3 times, it just feels so dang good, I can't get enough of it. Well it took longer than usual but I've reached that point where I'm totally ready for this baby to come. Just yesterday I started getting way too anxious. I feel like everyone who was due around the same time as me has had their babies. This time around I've had more comments than ever about how ready I look. Seriously wherever I go people do a double take or just have to comment about me looking "so ready" or that I look ready to pop. Some new ones this week have been as I was comparing 2 things at the store a man walked by and said "oh that's got to be nice to have a table to rest things on" another random guy said "pumpkin seed?" what? that's weird. Anyways I realize I'm huge this time around I must be much bigger because I seriously get a ton of comments and have been getting them for the last 2 months, I'm more ok with it now since I'm due in 10 days. I also aquired some stretch marks this time around, which scares me that she's going to be a big one. Thoughts of the delivery always scare me and are on my mind a bit more this time since I've heard some scary stories about the hospital down here. If I think about it too much I get anxiety. As anxious as I feel it is a fun and exciting thought to think any day she could decide to come and I know when she does everything will change for our little family. I'm excited to see how Maile and Emmy will react to a baby, because they've been so into babies and dolls lately (I'm definitely going to watch them closely so they don't try changing her diaper, feeding her all the crazy things they give their dolls or carrying her around the way they do their dolls), but really I think they will love having a new little sister.

As you can tell, we have been loving our backyard and are out there every afternoon. I always took grass for grantide, but boy am I grateful for it these days.

Your pictures are awesome...of course, those two darling girls can't take a bad picture. We're anxiously awaiting the news as well. Nice comment about the table...seriously - sometimes people just really need to keep their mouths shut. You can rest assured that NO MATTER HOW HUGE you get or think you get...you can KNOW for a fact that I was at least 20 pounds heavier and 52 inches bigger. Besides, when we saw you -- you were TINY!
