Here we are 3 days away from “Squirt’s” due date. Waiting… patiently for our little one to arrive. I had a considerable list of things that I needed to do and wanted to buy for the baby before his/her arrival, the list is just about completely crossed off and then I’ll literally be waiting for the baby to arrive. 🙂
It’s nice to be so organized, but now the waiting with not much else to do might drive me nuts. My doctor says things are going smoothly and they have been for the entire pregnancy and we will take it a step at at a time to get this baby to make their appearance.
*pt* and I are very excited, as most can imagine. We have daily conversations about how our life is going to change and what each day could possibly hold for us. We try to plan out possible scenarios of when the time comes to call the doctor and/or go to the hospital. We also continue to remember how blessed we are that he is now working so much closer to home as opposed to having been on the road almost this entire third trimester.
We recently saw an episode of “I Love Lucy” when Lucy was pregnant with Little Ricky and how Ricky, Fred and Ethel planned out and practiced how it would go when Lucy said it was “time”. It was quite hilarious because they practiced a few times and of course in the moment when it was time they were all so disheveled and excited that they forgot what each of them was to do and Lucy was left standing in the living room when all of them had left the apartment without her. Hopefully it won’t be that way for us, but we are as prepared as we can be with bags pack and a list of last minute items we should grab.
