Counting Down the Days

It's getting closer and closer to the big day. My doctors have set a date to induce me if I haven't already given birth...September 27. They apparently don't let women with gestational diabetes go past 39 weeks. But of course if I have no progression and the baby seems fine they'll wait a couple more days.

All I know is that I'm exhausted and it doesn't take much of anything to wear me out. Just folding the laundry wore me today. Then again we did run errands all morning. So I was already tired.

Monday is my last day "at" work and then I'll be working from home until the day arrives. It's amazing how tired I get just getting read for work...showering, dressing, driving...it completely wipes me out and by the time I get to the office I'm barely functioning.

I'll have to force myself to take showers though. :) Getting up and heading straight to the computer is an easy routine to fall into. Although I'm sure hubby will tell me if I start to stink too badly.

When the little guy arrives I'll be sure to share photos...though probably not right away as I'm sure you can understand. He's moving tons and hubby got to feel him moving like crazy this afternoon. It's like having a little alien in my belly and the two of them were cracking me up...baby moves and hubby makes a face of amazement. Totally adorable.

I probably won't blog a ton the next couple of weeks as I have bunches of work to get caught up on before I go on leave. Not to mention stuff to finish around the house. The crib is put together but we don't have a mattress yet. Hubby put the bassinet / playpen thingy together last week and it's in the bedroom ready to go. We've got some diapers in various sizes, plenty of wipes, and lots of clothing. Everything else will probably just have to wait.

If I haven't already mentioned it...I'm completely terrified and freaked out. :) I keep reminding myself that people do it ALL the time and have been doing it for thousands of years. But that doesn't always make me feel better.

Wish me luck!

Praying for an uneventful, pain free delivery and a happy, healthy baby!

I had GD with my first child and I lost 30 lbs after birth since I had to watch what I ate. When I was pregnant with the second I ate like I had it so I lost weight after having her. Breastfeeding also helps too! Hope everything goes well! :)
