39.5

We have officially reached the end! This week marks 40 weeks and hopefully this time next week we will have met our baby girl! I have truly been blessed with a comfortable pregnancy overall. However, when the clock struck 39 weeks, the discomfort got real. I am having more and more trouble sleeping, which is probably a good transition for the weeks to come. My ankles have swelled to new sizes and my feet can hardly fit in my shoes. Even as I complain, I am thankful that life didn't become so uncomfortable until the very end! We should be able to waddle through the next few days without too much trouble :).

This week has been an odd mixture of overwhelmed/excited, of feeling like there are one hundred things I should be doing, and not knowing what to do with myself at the same time. It is really hard to believe we are days away from welcoming our first baby into the world.
All 3 of us are eagerly awaiting her arrival! The next few days will mostly involve tying up loose ends at work and trying to get my ducks in a row on the home front. The nursery is 90% done and for the most part ready for it's resident. My hospital bag is packed and the preliminary paperwork filled out. The to-do list for the week ranges from thank you notes, to oil changes, to baby gadget assembly, to squeezing in one last pre-baby date!
