Meeting the baby tomorrow

Its May 19th, I’m home listening to the thunder. Sounds like there is going to be a storm – the perfect day to spend my last moments with my baby in my tummy.

I will be 40 weeks tomorrow and the doctor is a little worried that she is growing so much. So, looks like I am going to be induced tomorrow morning. Going to bed tonight is going to be difficult. Scared, nervous, excited just too many emotions running through my head. I’ve had some small contractions for the last couple of weeks and if that us any indication for the pain I will be having tomorrow….then wowza. I am seriously a wimp, and have low pain tolerance.

I know women have been having babies since the dawn of time but I just never thought this day will come. The only thing keeping me positive is that I will meet our daughter soon. That by the end of this weekend – all the stretch marks, throwing up, the peeing while coughing and waddling around will be worth it. Also, thank goodness for my husband, every night when I am wincing in pain from contractions he is rubbing my back, helping me in and out of bed and going on late night runs to Whataburger!!! My sisters and parents are another pillar of strength for me. Their excitement puts me at ease and helps me try to enjoy these last few hours before I go to the hospital.

Here are the last few belly pics. Weeks 36 – 39.

    I know you’re scared, but I also know you are extremely strong. You can do this!!!
    Do you remember all those late night conversations we used to have when I would sneak into your room in the middle of the night? The shadow puppets?
    Or when I would wake up to thunder, like today’s, and run to your room and you would scoot over and make room for me? I’d always fall back to sleep easily.
    I have no doubt in my mind that you were destined to be a mother. And you’re going to be an amazing one at that.

    I cannot wait to meet your daughter!!! I already love her sooooo much.
    I’ll see you tomorrow!!!
