He's Almost Here...!!

36 weeks

Ok so it's been a quick minute since I last blogged...I know I've been terrible.
Today I am: 36 weeks and 6 days pregnant.
37 weeks tomorrow..HOLLA!

Thursday, September 29th was my last day of work. It was bittersweet. I've worked since I was 16 and had been at ACS for over 3 years so NOT working is kinda new to me. This week was my first week of not working and I will admit being 9 months pregnant and just getting to have my own schedule has been nice. Now when I say that let's remember 9 months pregnant so I really haven't done much except lounge with my big belly and try to do some baby things I have not done in the last 9 months.

I have most of my hospital bag packed, including Wyatt's things to bring him home. I washed all his clothes and most blankets. Mostly I just want him to be here already. It's been 9 months and the end is SOOOO close. I just wanna hold him in my arms instead of feeling him jab and kick me from the inside.

I have had a couple friends have their baby and can I just say BABY ENVY! I want mine NOW. ahaha. I had my baby showers which were awesome and Wyatt got a lot of cute stuff.
Being a first time mom this baby stuff is all very unknown to me. Of course I'm excited for him, but I know there's a lot of hard work heading my way real quick as well. I kept telling my cousin Shara that I was excited to sleep on my stomach again..her response?
"Sleep is the key word, and you won't get much of it for awhile."

Oh man. I like to think I've actually done quite well considering it's my first pregnancy. No real morning sickness, no bad mood swings, no emotional break downs (although I do tear up for songs, commercials, etc sometimes), and no control freak outs. I impressed myself with my ability to just go with the flow this whole time, because stressing doesn't help and it won't change things. I hope to continue this thought process once Wyatt comes because I've learned that when you expect things to be a certain way they never end up that way. So I am just going with it...

I am ready to be un-pregnant. I am ready to have my body back, to be able to sleep on my stomach, to wear normal clothes again, and to not have a little human rolling around inside me. I am SO excited to meet my baby boy and welcome him to the world. I am SO excited to finally be a mama to my own child and to have Will become a dad.
It will be weird becoming a trio with this lil person to what's been a duo for so long. But we are excited to start our family. The biggest debate: What color HAIR will he have?!
Will and his dad still believe blonde towhead all the way.
I and most people believe my dark genes will dominate, but I hope he has Will's blue eyes. We shall find out pretty soon!!!!
