Painted Toes-ready

39 weeks...that is what I will be tomorrow. Good and ready to have this little one out and in my arms! It is gotten stronger and stronger in it's movements over the past week and actually is starting to hurt when the bum comes out one side and the leg stretches itself out the other:-) Something I will miss for sure, but do admit it hurts! Had a doc appointment on Wednesday and after I told her about the false labor she checked me and said I was 3-4 cm and 50% effaced, very soft. She said she thought I would go in the next few days and I wouldn't see her next week...what excitement for me! Then she stripped my membranes (sorry if TMI) and caused some major cramping and other stuff yesterday, but unfortunately did not put me in to any labor. I remember with Austin I was so disappointed when I didn't go early like I did with Logan. I was so crabby and upset, I even went running at 40 weeks to try and get him to come out! HA! I do have to say my attitude is much better this time around and time has flown up till now!

(no Mike did not paint his own fingernail...a pelican case-very heavy duty case, fell on his finger and bruised it)

We do have most things ready now, bags packed for me and the boys, diapers ready, bed set up, and even my toe nails are painted and beautiful! Yes, I made the hubs paint my toe-nails. He picked out the color and took the time to do a very good job! What a sweet man:-) When I had my false labor on Tuesday, it did hit me that I may not be as ready in other ways. I mean...this sweet bum that sticks out half my belly...soon I will be changing it and wiping it every 2 hours! The little hands that punch, will soon by folded in a burrito swaddle. And that sweet face that I can't WAIT to see will be zonked out after a satisfying nursing session. Another little one to raise, guide and love with all our hearts. To just watch in awe of how cute and perfect they I ready for this flood of emotions? For my heart to be stretched yet again and overfilled with love, care and concern? aaaahhhhh yes...I sure am:-) Now I just need the patience to wait for this little babe to come on out!

Again, if you want to guess the gender, weight, date, etc...go HERE and put in your vote! Who ever is closest with all the stats will win a crocheted item from me:-) Just to let you all know, the doc says I am 3-4cm and good to go any day now...but I do feel like I will go over my due date. We shall see!

heheh Joey painted mine right before Daisy was born too! I was really appreciate of him doing that but, I have to say he didn't do nearly as good of a job as Mike did for you..I think I had more pant on my toes! ha. I'm so excited for you Elissa. Anytime now!

How sweet of your hubs! You make me want another baby SO bad but I am trying very hard to be patient and let my little girl grow up a little more. I'm so excited for you! Can't wait to "meet" this new little treasure.
