I am two days shy of my due date. I had some photos taken on Friday and I think they are an accurate depiction of how this pregnancy has been for me. I feel like I'm living a miracle with this baby girl growing inside me. I've been blessed to be healthy, happy, and able to fully enjoy being pregnant. Although I am so excited to meet the little one, I really think I'm gonna miss her living inside me. My belly has become a part of me, and it's not gonna be around much longer.
I'm still only dilated to a one, but I did have my membranes stripped yesterday and this morning I lost my mucous plug. (Pardon the gory details.) I'm having contractions that are mild and inconsistent- but they are happening nonetheless. My mom and I took a long walk today so hopefully this gal will be on the way soon.
Emotions of all sorts have been manifesting themselves this week: anticipation, anxiousness, excitement, and a little bit of nervousness. But last night as I went into the nursery to add one more thing to my hospital bag, I was overwhelmed with joy when I realized that sometime in the next week Ellie Layne will be resting quietly in her yellow crib. I can't believe I'm gonna have a baby.
Oh happy day!
