My due date is just around the corner, I can’t believe there are only about 3 weeks left. We are busy trying to get the nursery put together, hopefully that’ll be done this week sometime. I don’t procrastinate and am one of those people who has to have everything done early, be on time (or early) to everything, and the fact that the nursery is not done yet is driving me a little crazy. But I’m dealing with it.
My last day of work is this Friday. I’ll be a stay at home mom (for a while anyway) and I can’t wait. I’m glad I decided to take a couple of weeks to relax before the baby arrives, provided, of course, she doesn’t decide to come early! It will be nice to get a few things done around the house, prepare and freeze a few meals for us and just spend some quality time with myself. I know a lot of women don’t get the opportunity to do that so I am very grateful.
My husband and I attended our first childbirth preparation class yesterday, it is a two part class so next Saturday is our other class. The class was pretty good, we learned a few things and got to take a tour of the maternity ward, which is just beautiful. You should see the security system they have set up to prevent baby abductions. I know most hospitals here in the US have these fancy systems now but I really had no idea how high tech they were. We got to see the nursery too. The babies were adorable. Soon we’ll have one of those!
I have been very lucky so far and haven’t had much, if any, of the third trimester aches and pains. Hopefully with only a few weeks to go I’ll get to miss out on that part! I have had a back ache every now and then, nothing too bad though. I’m not sick of being pregnant yet, and everyone seems to think I should be by this point. To me it is still fun, and totally amazing.
Time to get back to working on the nursery
