I just tried having a bath with my shirt on only I didn’t realize it was on until I was submerged. I gotta get this kid out of me!
Naturally, like any woman close to giving birth, I took on a DIY project for my little boys. I couldn’t resist when I can across these adorable crib houses and since I’m planning to keep Wylder in a crib for a while yet, I obviously needed to make two! The project took waaay longer than necessary because I can only work on it during naps. Some days Wylder was gracious enough to give me 2 hours, others I was lucky to have one. Here’s my adorable finished project. The boys have matching cribs so these will eventually be side by side in their room once we move this new guy out of our room! I’m waiting for my call to be featured in Architectural Digest…
3 days now until I’m going under knife and I’m starting to freak out a little bit. I lie. I started freaking out a week ago and my amazingly patient husband talks me off a ledge every night before we go to bed! I’m already an anxious person and this past week it occurred to me that if I had the option for a natural delivery, I don’t like that either. Basically I’m not interested in any of my options to get this baby out, but soon enough it’ll be here and gone and we will get to meet this young gentleman that can’t seem to stop beating me up from the inside. Seriously, this boy might be a wild one or one day join the circus. I swear he’s performing Cirque de Soléi several times a day and it’s not so cute at this stage in the game!
This pregnancy has been so hard on me. Such a roller coaster ride. It’s crazy to think that had the complete placenta previa never resolved, our baby boy would’ve been here 3 weeks ago already and who knows how everything would’ve turned out regarding my health and recovery or how much time he may have needed in the NICU. There were so many points where all I wanted to do was fast forward to the end and have it all behind me after leaving so many doctor appointments in tears. I’m incredibly grateful I’ve had these last 8 weeks to enjoy the last moments of carrying a child. Not feeling worried that each kick might make me bleed and we’d have to run to the hospital and I’d either have a very premature baby or be kept there on bed rest. I’ve gotten to enjoy my last moments with Wylder being my baby and been able to hold him, rock him when he wakes in the middle of the night, take him to the park and meet friends for coffee and walks! It’s been refreshing feeling like I was living life again.
So here we are…on the final countdown. Lots of false labor already and I’m open to the idea of having an emergency c-section earlier this week to get it out of the way! Why not! Can you believe I couldn’t charm the anesthesiologist into giving me ‘calming aides’ prior to my surgery? So now I just have to be brave! I’m ready to bid farewell to the shooting nerve pain this babe sends shooting down my legs, back and ‘unmentionables’ several times a day. Plus, I’m so ready for another little man to come into my life and for the craziness to ensue! I’m also prepared to bawl my eyes out the moment Wylder and Nolan meet their new baby bro. Until then, I’ll continue to make my husband crazy so please pray for him.
