Now, with all that said, I have allowed ONE exception to this rule of "please no ALL pink".
Who couldn't fall in love with this?!?!? This is one of many wonderful and thoughtful items that Gramma Diane from LaceLovin-Librarian sent in a "Shower in a box". Unwrapping each item sent me into a fit of crying, especially this onsie.
So Gramma Diane...you slipped this one in! In fact, we love it so much that we have packed it in our labor bag so that when this baby makes her debut we can say "She is the one with tatting".
I have lot's of good news to report on the Piccadilly front. Firstly, I am now 36 weeks along and that means I have officially graduated from the "high risk" pregnancy group! Words cannot express how thankful I am to have made it this far. In fact all my doctors came in to shake my hand and congratulate me. It was bittersweet as I said my goodbyes to all the staff and nurses that I have gotten to know so well. But best of all, this means that I am off bed rest...whoo hoo!
The first thing I wanted to do was to go for a walk. I haven't really been able to do anything physical for over 5 months so I begged hubby to take to me to the hills even though he still had his reservations.Here we are! It was a short sweet easy little hike....or a more accurate description would be "waddle".
Now mind you, I am not going "hog wild" with my new freedom. We would still like to keep her "cook'n" as long as possible. But with the danger behind us I feel like I can finally, for the first time, enjoy being pregnant...even if the last month is notoriously the worst for discomfort.
I am still contracting like crazy...(and NO, they are NOT Braxton Hicks contractions) and baby is right there really low just waiting to come out....so I am like, "In or out kiddo...stop hanging out in the doorway!!"
Being in a constant state of pre-term labor for 5 months has been thoroughly, physically and mentally exhausting.
Every day now begs the question, "Is today THE day?" It's kinda driving me nuts folks! I'm starting to think that this little baby might be some kind of drama queen.
Is she going to be a Libra like her daddy or will she be a Scorpio like her momma??
All I know is that our lives are about to drastically change forever and we are as ready as we will ever be!
I want to slip in a big hearty THANK YOU to my friends and family who have really stepped up to help us acquire the baby essentials. Up until now I have not been able to do any baby shopping, and honestly I didn't even know what was needed. I have had some wonderful baby items arrive by post and just recently had family visit who helped tremendously in preparation. I am greatly humbled and grateful.
