Happy due date to meeeee

I always anticipated seeing this day come and go, still with the Turtle in my tummy. I'm not really disappointed. I'm still enjoying this pregnancy, feeling the closeness and the kicks and feeling special knowing I'm growing my little baby.

Sure I'm getting tired, I can't sleep well at night or get comfortable, my pelvis hurts and walking around isn't so easy. I can't do as many fun things with the girls during the day, but we manage some activities. If Turtle decides to come today or tomorrow, I'd be thrilled. But if he/she holds out for another couple weeks or so, I'm happy enough with that too. I'd rather wait until he/she is good and ready.

It will be great to find out if we have a boy or girl baby, to see what they will look like, to put them in all these little darling clothes I've washed and folded, to use these little cute prefold diapers on their tiny little bottom. I'm excited about it all.

I'm the kind of person though who doesn't just love opening the Christmas present, but I love the days leading up to it, the anticipation, the excitement, knowing something special is going to happen soon. I want to just savor these last moments. Pregnancy is such a special time, and this one has gone by pretty quickly, and pretty painlessly. I've been quite lucky this time around. No huge health concerns, and the baby seems to be growing bang on target without issues. So no reason to rush. I'm not sending out an eviction notice quite just yet. :)

Oh wow, Denise! I can't believe you're due date is here. It seems just like yesterday I read that you're expecting again. I'm sure it didn't seem like that time went by so quickly for you though! LOL

I know what you mean about Christmas and the time leading up to it etc.. I'm like that with all things exciting. Like now we're moving... I'm loving these days of clearing out, packing and cleaning! And I know I'm going to love making a wonderful new home for me and Steve!

Thinking of you and praying for a wonderful birth! Much love... x
