Here I am 1 week and 4 days (or so) until I have a baby and you would think that I would be miserable. I'm not, and I can't believe it! I have so much energy that one walk a day doesn't seem to cut it. I have been spending most of my time outside playing with the kids (we are all so sun burnt) and just doing things to keep us occupied. I have even been sleeping better! It is great! My back doesn't hurt as much, my hips don't hurt as much, and my legs are feeling a little less jumpy.
They say that most people get more energy before they have the baby, but I have never felt this great being this pregnant before. It is strange though, I am not really all that concerned with going into labor right now. I am not really to the point of having the "get this baby out of me now" attitude yet. There have been 2 people that were due after me already have their babies and I find myself only a little jealous.
I do feel bad for my friend (Yay I have a new friend in my new neighborhood!) that is due tomorrow. She goes on a walk with me every day, and still nothing. I hope for her sake that she has him soon, she is so ready! Maybe I will have to take her a special treat tomorrow just to get her mind off of it for a few minutes.
So anyway, I feel great and I am loving it! It makes it so much easier to look at the next week or so with a little happiness and not misery! I can't wait to hold my little guy and get him here, but I am very glad that I can feel good enough to keep on going for a little longer.
My friend had her baby this morning. Right on her due date! I am so excited for her. Now I am a little jealous, but I still know that my time will be soon. Congrats to her and her family!
