If baby girl were to come on her due date, that would mean we only have 5 weeks & 4 days left! I can't believe how close it is now! I feel both really ready & not really ready at all. The nursery is still a work in progress but we have most of the necessities (at least I think). & even though I've been saying I'm over being pregnant, I don't know that it's fully sunk in that the baby growing inside of me for the last 8 and a half months will suddenly be here & my life will be changed forever. Maybe that's something that doesn't become reality until it's actually reality.
I only have 4 weeks left at my job which has made the days a little more bearable. It's so nice having an "end" in sight. So, if she doesn't come early, I'll have a little time at home to hopefully nest & rest. Nursing & birthing classes are scheduled for next week. & for now, I'm going to keep enjoying the relief that came right around the time she "popped". I noticed about a week ago, my stomach was significantly rounder, harder & sticking out farther! To the point some of my longer shirts don't curve under my belly anymore. It seemed like it happened over night & at the same time I felt better! I'm not as achy as I had been, there's not as much discomfort or pressure in my lower abdomen. Sleep is still a fleeting thing & I move a lot slower but neither could overshadow how nice it feels to generally feel pretty good. I'm also liking my body more than I have throughout the entire pregnancy. Maybe I've embraced it or maybe I'm finally experiencing that pregnancy euphoria I heard women talk about. Either way, I'm going to sit back, hope these good feels last as long as possible & enjoy however many weeks I have left!
