Can it really be just two weeks till Ashtyn arrives? Yes! And I hope it’s sooner actually. Because the swelling and heartburn cannot leave me soon enough. 🙂 Jeff and I are both ready for this baby to arrive.
Well, if I could just finish up my last project at work, then I’d feel even more ready. My sister Sara has been here with us for the last couple of weeks, which has been such a big help to me. And my mom showed up this past weekend as a surprise! She flew in from Texas. Mom, Dad, and Laura will be back out here when Ashtyn is born. Time really has flown by (until now, as it’s started just creeping along). Still, it doesn’t seem like that long ago that I first told Jeff we were having a baby. And here we are–days away from having a daughter of our very own.
I read this article online yesterday with tips for things to do during the last couple of weeks of pregnancy. Things like taking time for yourself, spending time with friends, spending time with your partner, organizing, gardening (that was a strange one–I can barely lean over to tie my shoes! Much less plant flowers!) and so on. The taking time for yourself and being with your partner jumped out at me the most. Maybe it’s this realization that soon I’ll rarely be alone and Jeff and I will be alone even less. So I’m going to take the advice and set aside time for just me and time for me and Jeff.
But I won’t be doing any gardening. 🙂
I’m off to a doctor’s appointment this morning. Be looking for the post announcing Ashtyn’s arrival any time between now and the 20th.
