I am now at 36 weeks into my pregnancy. Here is an excerpt from What to Expect When You’re Expecting that summarizes exactly how I am feeling.
“Finally. The month you’ve been waiting for and working toward (and possibly, worrying about just a little bit) since that pregnancy test came back positive is here at last. Chances are you’re at once very ready (To hold that baby! To see my toes again! To sleep on my stomach!) and not ready at all. Yet despite the inevitable flurry of activity (more practitioner appointments, a layette to shop for, projects to finish at work, paint colours to pick for baby’s room), you may find that the ninth month seems like the longest month of all. Except, of course, if you don’t deliver by your due date. In that case, alas, it’s the tenth month that’s the longest.”
I find myself talking to my baby more and more, mostly about how I wish that he/she would come out already. I did not really start feeling pregnant until the beginning of last month. From struggling to breathe, to painful heartburn, to sore hips, to the lack of sleep, to a heavy belly, to that metallic taste, to people finally recognizing that I am pregnant, I am now “over” feeling this way. The hardest part is seeing the crib, swing, change table, and more set up and ready to go, but not having anyone to put in it just yet. I want to meet little Poppy so badly, but also know that I should cherish my remaining days of freedom. I am enjoying spending that one night a week alone with my husband to do as we please. Oh, how our lives are about to change!
Get ready, everyone. I know that I am.
