This will probably be the last belly shot I post for this pregnancy. It was taken a couple of days early because we had such beautiful weather on Wednesday. My mom and I decided to have lunch at the little park that sits in the middle of our office complex. She just happened to have her camera with her so we took advantage of the sunlight (notice the extra squinty eyes) and took a few shots. I’m glad we did, because even though they aren’t the best pictures ever, these are probably the ones I will look back at one day when I want to show BabyG photos of her in my belly.
Right now I’m still a little bit in disbelief that my daughter will be here in 4 days or less. It has gone by so fast, and yet I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever at the same time. Of course, knowing that I went the full 40 weeks, plus an extra 4 days, with Zach makes this pregnancy seem short since I’ll be delivering at 38 1/2 weeks. I’m very thankful that I won’t have to wait quite that long this time. I’m so anxious right now I can hardly stand it. Every time I feel a little twinge in my stomach I’m thinking, “Is this it? Is it time?” But, of course it isn’t.
Today is my last day at work for a while and I have to say I’m pretty happy about that. I have a great job, but it will be nice to have a break for a while. I am completely caught up on my stuff and am spending the day today helping my mom out so she can be a little more caught up before she has to take over my job. I’ll be taking 6 weeks off, but will most likely be doing some work from home during the last few weeks of that. Since my boss provides a laptop, I really have no excuses not to.
Unless I go into labor early, this weekend will be spent hanging out with Zach and giving him as much special mommy time as possible. I have a feeling the next few weeks are going to be very hard on him. He’s very excited about his baby sister, but I know he really has no idea what it’s going to be like when she comes home with us. I’m not quite sure I do either to be honest.
