Baby Book Addict, Miscellaneous Ramblings

Getting Closer….

…. to my due date!

Friday the 18th was my last day at work. I will still be working from home until I go back to work. It’s not a lot of work, luckily, because I will be super busy once little G makes his arrival.

Tomorrow marks 38 weeks. I’m anxious. I’m ready. I hate having my doctor asking me every week if I’ve felt any contractions – because I have to keep saying no. I want to get this show on the road already!

The nursery is almost complete. Nathan painted the two shelves to hang on the walls yesterday. Today I hope he will hang them. Then we will set the monitor system up on one of the shelves. And that’s it – we’re done! (Except for the baby, haha!)

I feel the nesting instinct starting to kick in. I’m not completely there yet, but I’m starting to get a little bit frazzled about the state of my house, the nursery not being entirely done, etc. My mom said that when it hits in full force to let her know because it’s close to being time.

I’m determined to make the most of these last two weeks (or until G decides it’s time). My life will change forever (in a good way, of course!). We want to see two more movies before he comes (Battleship & Dark Shadows) and I want to finish the book that I’m reading (and would love to sneak in just one more). Yesterday Nathan had an early tee time and I was able to sleep in until 8:30 – sadly, that is sleeping in for me. The days that I am going to be able to do that are definitely numbered.

But I’m ready. I’m excited. I’m anxious. I’m nervous.

I’m ready to be a mom!
