No I am not talking about the public holiday held in honor of the working people in the US. I am talking about the process by which childbirth occurs, beginning with contractions of the uterus and ending with the expulsion of the fetus or infant and the placenta, better known as -popping out a kid. I'm in the home stretch guys and I can say...I can DEFINITELY feel it!
I have been feeling so miserable I feel like she could come about (at the earliest 3 weeks) -which is a crazy realization. We are roughly looking at about 3-6 weeks until her arrival. So things like, packing the hospital bag, putting down a water proof covering on our bed, and scrubbing and cleaning every inch of this house and washing, folding, spot treating ironing and hanging up baby clothes has been on my mind. Am I nesting? No. I would call it something more like a total modernization, restoration, redecoration, refurbishment, revamping makeover of our entire house. :)
Today hubby and I did get some MUCH needed baby things, and items for Mama that I have been lacking so that does make me feel at least a wee little more prepared for all of this. This is a new adventure our litle family is about to embark on and everyday the journey becomes just a little bit more real with each passing day.
Whatever the outcome may be -ready or not baby's coming! I guess we're as ready as we'll ever be! -Tina
