I am combining these past two weeks into one journal. I am actually 38 weeks today. SIX days to go. This is my last journal entry until I submit the birth story. I cannot tell you how EXCITED I am. I cannot believe it is almost here. Today is my last day of work, so I am getting everything squared away for my 12 week vacation (from work.) I will begin my new job, being a new mom again, after that! Being a mom I think is definitely more work than any other job out there.
I had my last visit to the doctor yesterday. Everything went great. I gained 0 lbs this past week, which I was happy about since I gained 3 the week before. I am not sure about the total weight gain yet but I am thinking it is about 35 lbs. I talked to the doctor about my anxiety that I am getting over the c-section. I am fully aware that this time will be different, BUT . . . I am still super nervous. He has assured me that the pain medicine and the spinal will be different than having just an epidural.
I feel like there is still so much to do, my brain is going in all different directions. Some things cannot be done until the end of the week. I need to get Allie's bag for the hospital and for my parents ready, mine and Claire's bag ready and some snacks for everybody to eat during the day. It will be a long day for them as well.
Next week, even though I am off work, I am super busy. Tuesday I go to the hospital to have some blood work done, not quite sure what that is all about. I am planning to get my hair cut and take Allie to the dentist for the first time. That will be exciting. My sister-in-law works for a dentist so maybe it will not be so bad. Then I planned to stay home one day and get some cleaning done.
Well next time I write I will have a beautiful new baby girl in my arms!! Can't wait to meet Claire Brooke Henderson!!!!!
