I have been looking forward to this day for awhile…today marks the day that I only have 100 days left until my due date. I have been through so much with this pregnancy so far that making it to this point seemed impossible at times. Just this past Thursday I wasn’t sure I was going to make it to this day. I was once again having horrible contractions and was at the hospital. Fortunately, baby was okay and I was released to bed rest for a few days and told to take it easy. I apologize for the lack of posts and I have MANY amazing reviews and giveaways coming up (hopefully quite a few in the next couple of days) so I hope you will stay tuned. So when you see lack of posts, know it’s most likely because I am being forced to take it easy. I never knew it would be so difficult to grow a baby. This has been the most difficult pregnancy that I have ever had. She is definitely worth it though and I can’t wait to finally meet her….I just pray she stays in until October!
This baby girl is already so loved and I have already been receiving lots of gifts for her. I am so thankful to all the sweet friends (and family) that I have. It’s so fun that they are as excited as I am about having my first little girl!
My boys even picked out a few outfits for her. Tobin picked out the cute little dress…he is so excited to have a little sister!
My husband has also been spoiling his little princess with her very first piece of jewelry, first Minnie Mouse, and of course her first 49’ers shirt (and the cute little headband so everyone knows she is a girl)!
I have also been having so much fun buying girl clothes and getting her room ready. Some people think I am crazy for already having so much done for when our little girl gets here. I have even done a lot of Christmas shopping and hope to start wrapping sometime soon. I know it seems crazy, but since I have had so many problems, I want to be prepared in case she comes early or I end up on full bed rest until she is born. I am hoping to avoid full bed rest since I feel like there is still so much I want to do. I have friends wanting to throw me a baby shower, still quite a few summer activities I would like to do, make lots of freezer meals, and of course do more baby shopping once winter clothes come out! Of course, none of that is as important as making sure this baby cooks for as long as possible. So I’m willing to do whatever I need to do, but hoping the next 3 months goes by smoothly…and quickly!
Anyone else go through something like that? Feel free to share your stories and/or advice!
