August or Bust

Every day I intend to post. And every day after work, I am just exhausted. It seems as though we're extra busy, but I could be biased because everything seems like it takes more effort for me now. My feet are swelling more and more after work...especially after my 12 hour shifts. At my last baby dr's appt I mentioned how I'm getting closer to the end and can see the finish line. He just looked at me like I was crazy. I still have a little over 3 months to go he pointed out. I told him that I have a lot going on in those three months and and they should go quickly.

I hope.

I mean, the summer always goes fast. I have things to prep for both at work, and getting ready for Ninja Baby. I have my shower in June. I have books to read and summer movies to watch. We have weddings, and baptisms and birthdays. Holidays and cookouts.

I'm a planner. I have always had a tendency to plan for and anticipate the future. Sometimes I'm so into thinking ahead that I forget to stop and enjoy the Now. Since being pregnant, I've tried to slow down and just enjoy the moment. I won't always be pregnant. I may not even be able to again. My house won't always be this quiet or this calm. I won't always have this much free time. I need to just Enjoy it now. Because my life as I know it is going to Change. In a big way. August will be here before I know it.

I hope.

Sorry Sarah, I forgot....before I posted. Listen, you're a smart cookie, don't let them cut you until your epidural has set up. I honestly think this young girl was just petrified you know? There are millions of these things a day. From what I understand it's better than having them vaginally (though I don't have a personal account of this...) Surgery is surgery....and when you work in medicine...it's still surgery ;) Just remember the end result is a beautiful little someone new!

Yes, August will be here before you know it. Take it from me, enjoy the down time while you can. You will miss it. It's worth it, but you'll miss it. A C-section is not all that bad. You just have to remember that it's all worth it in the end when you hold that little, healthy, wonderful baby. That's what I told myself when I found out I had to have one. Plus, the meds are fabulous!

August really isn't that far away. I am excited for you! BTW just wanted to let you know I'm still reading your blog, my internet access is just limited these days. ;)

Sounds like we are a little alike. I get so caught up on what's coming next that I forget to pay attention to what's going on now. I think that's the blog's job.
