Waiting for Baby

Well, here I am at 34 weeks. It doesn't matter how busy you are, you start to get anxious and/or eager waiting for that special moment. The thing is it could be anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks from now before our little one decides to come out and join the party. I am torn between feeling that things are going so fast to feeling they are going too slow, mostly the latter.

She seems fine and healthy, although I've definitely reached that uncomfortable stage, with a lot of pressure down low and little feet and/or a bottom up in front of my ribs. She's trying to force me to have good posture! She goes from days of moving around like crazy (today) to lazy days like yesterday where I have to lay down after a snack and try to entice her into letting me know that all is well (which she always does).

We have been getting all the details in order for her birth. We've got the homebirth kit already and have made arrangements to rent a birthing pool. My midwife appointments are more frequent (every 2 weeks now). There are still some things we'd like to get done around the house (like paint the living room and bathroom), but I don't know if we'll get to all of them or not. We've got most things in order for her (diapers, clothes, carseat, etc.), so maybe my brain is like, "Okay, we're ready! How about you, little one?" (not that I really want her to come before she's ready).

I am having a blessingway in a week and a half. I can't wait for that. It will be so nice to have my friends here and to spread some of that good energy in the very place where my little girl will be born. They are all so great; I'm lucky to have them!

Well, even I can tell I'm rambling today. Just felt like writing a little something. That's all for now!

Can't wait to see you at the blessingway, I'm already excited about it!
