Week 36
~ One More Week!

Another roller-coaster of a week. I have been really emotional this past week due to the fact that Rob is not working. I know we'll get through this. I just wish the timing was a little different. I feel so stressed that I am having trouble sleeping. I keep telling myself to take advantage of all the sleep I can get at this point, because in a WEEK (yikes!) our baby will be here and then it's all over, ha ha!

I had what I thought was my last appointment yesterday, but it turns out my doctor wants to see me one more time (the day before I deliver). It was the quickest appointment I've ever had because I was scheduled at 11:45 and my doctor had to leave at noon for a delivery. I was rushed in, she listened to the heartbeat, asked if I had any questions (I said I'd ask them next week; I wanted her to go through the steps involved in terms of what will happen for the c-section), and then she was gone! Rob didn't even have time to park the car and get up to her office! Well, luckily he will be with me next week and I hope that we'll get another ultrasound, as he has only been with me once when I had an ultrasound. That sounds silly now that I think about it, because he'll see the baby in *person* the very next day, hee hee!

I am now off of work, thank God! This week will be spent Christmas shopping, getting our tree, and washing the baby clothes, and packing for the hospital. I'm starting to get really nervous now! I can't believe it's almost over. Rob is so insane. Last night we were talking and I was holding Daisy and I said, "This is my only little girl" and he goes, "until we have another one!" I swear, he is loony!!! He has mentioned several times during this pregnancy that he wants at least one more (preferably two) and I *really* think that I am done. I just can't imagine going through this again. When I tell people I am pretty much done having babies, they always say, "That's what everyone says when they are pregnant!" but I didn't say that last time! I just think that since we have one of each we should count our blessings and leave it at that, you know? Who knows what will happen in the future, but I can truly say right now that I am done, and *if* we have any more it won't be for at least 4-5 years. I have been day dreaming about getting my body back and I just can't wait. I feel so large and uncomfortable these past few weeks.

Only one more entry to go and then comes my birth story!!
