Pregnancy Week 39

39 weeks pregnant

Here I am, 2 hours away from being 39 weeks pregnant! And just 36 hours away from being admitted to the hospital to have my second sweet baby boy. I am so happy I have made it this far, but am ready for the pregnancy to be over at the same time.  There have been so many times where I was like "Is this the night?" because I have had so many irregular contractions. Its all been so uncertain yet surreal.  I am quite honestly not looking forward to the recovery, but it is par for the course when you have a c-section.  My preferrable choice?  Of course not! But it is the least dangerous choice in my particular circumstance and I would just like people to respect that.
     Anyway, I have definitely felt a spurt of energy this evening preparing 5 baked potatoes, 4 chicken cutlets, and 12 blueberry muffins and not even for me!  I am preparing some food for my Dad, who has so lovingly and graciously decided to help us out while I am in the hospital by watching Judah.  I love him so much.  Tomorrow I also have planned to make a chicken pot pie, banana bread, and 3 dozen pancakes.  I will probably freeze some of these things, but I just kind of wish I had this energy a little sooner and not at the last minute : )  At least its getting done.  Tomorrow also on the agenda is some last minute food shopping, signing some mortgage papers (ahh! yay!), and prepping for the surgery.
     Almost there....!

  1. You are looking lovely! We are thinking of you and praying that all goes well.

    Recovery is a drag but at least you have support all around you (and a loving husband to do six weeks worth of vacuuming) :)
