The countdown begins....

Lilypie Expecting a baby Ticker

So I am officially 2 weeks away from my due date and this is where it gets hard for me. I start to worry about how this is all going to play out. I worry about my boys and what I will do with them when I go into labor and while I am in the hospital (even though I have wonderful people lined up to help us out), I worry about how everyone will adjust to life with this new little person (although I am sure that it will work out just fine...right Austin?!), I worry (or am more annoyed rather) that my maternity clothes are getting tighter and tighter and soon I will have to work to lose all this baby weight, and overall, I am just ready to move on to the next stage...life with a newborn. Did I mention that I am starting to have crazy dreams about going into labor? It makes for a very restless nights sleep! I still have a few things to do to prepare, one major thing being that I need to pack my bag for the hospital. I will do that today! I decided that 9 months is a really long time and I am ready to wrap this up (goodbye heartburn). Thank goodness I am not an elephant as their gestation period is 22 months, however, at the moment I am feeling slightly larger than one. I think that I need an afternoon of crafts, so my plan (after packing my bag of course) is to start sewing my diaper bag (hopefully tomorrow). The race is on...we'll see which comes first the baby or the diaper bag. Here's hoping the baby wins!

Everything will turn out just fine. Besides, if you were all prepared and had everything ready, it would just make the time go even slower. So, enjoy the last few days of having only 3 kids, because it will change soon enough. (I can say this because I'm not the one who's pregnant!) I wish we were closer so I could come help out. When ya movin'?

Don't get stressed out! Everything will be great and besides life goes on after the baby comes and you will still have time to do other things. You will even still find time for yourself and time to do crafts. You have some helpers who will come to your aid, even Brett will help you find time to still do the things you enjoy! It just takes some planning. This is life in my fairy tale world. Hopefully it will work for you! Don't forget I'm coming down for a week and I will help you find time to do some fun things! We can't wait until this little one is here. Any names yet?
