39 Weeks

This is your mother speaking.

I know you know when your true birthday is- you will come when you are all grown and ready- I know that and I’m okay with that. I wouldn’t want you to come any earlier. I know that my body and you have a thing goin’ on, and you know exactly when the perfect time will be for you to enter this world.

But just in case you were wondering, YES we’re ready for you! I am anxiously awaiting your arrival and I promise we’ll love you to pieces when you get here! 
Can I just tell you how utterly impossible it is to get up and down from my couch? I’m not kidding you. It’s got to be some sort of freak show watching a pregnant women try and lay on the couch and then manage to get up. Oh, the things we go through…. 
I can’t believe I’m 39 weeks pregnant. 39 weeks! Even though I don’t feel like my baby has dropped and I’ve had no labor signs thus far- the truth is- I WILL have my baby here within weeks one way or the other!! And really, what else matters?! 
I’m hoping the 5 mile walk I went on today helped move him down a little. Or at least that it did something beneficial besides make my feet incredibly sore. Like I need another reason to waddle around the house.
