The 40th Week

Bump at 39 weeks

The last pregnancy photo; taken yesterday afternoon

My face in the photo taken outside of our house yesterday pretty much sums up how I’m feeling. Tired and a bit uncomfortable. What can I say? It’s been a long journey. I have few words at this point to capture what an experience this has been. And this is nothing compared to the whole point of it. These last 40 weeks come to a big, huge climatic end in a few days here. I’m a little nervous. But mostly I am very much looking forward to not being pregnant. There are so many emotions rolling around from excitement to anxiety and everything in between. Ahhh it all sounds so trite. A friend said yesterday that this was really the hardest part: THE WAITING. I think she is right. What will he be like? What will it be like to have a son in our lives? What will the birth be like?

Everything is in place and this week I’m trying to wrap up some freelance work and take care of a mountain of laundry before our little one arrives. Other things on the docket: drinking lots of water and resting. I’m also considering a matinee and some pool time to get my mind off of things.
