C-section scheduled? Check.

Ladies and Gentlemen, We have a due date scheduled. The doctor's office called and confirmed I am scheduled for a c-section April 13th, a scant 1 month from today. Luckily, NOT a Friday the 13th. This is all assuming that I don't go into labor before then. But it is exciting either way because at least I have a for sure date to know I will meet my 2nd son by.

In some ways I am more than ready and feel like I have been pregnant forever but in others I can't believe my pregnancy is almost over. I know my body is ready for a break. I already feel like I am busting at the seams and any day a rib is going to pop out and impale me. Mentally I am not as prepared but how can you ever really be ready for a newborn and a toddler? I know I will just have to take it one day at a time.

I did get a box of receiving blankets, onesies, and sleepers today in the mail from my husband's step-sister. Nothing like seeing tiny little footie sleepers with dinosaurs on them to get you all excited about meeting your new baby. Yay for baby presents.

Ooooh, I can't wait for pictures! i know what you mean about being pregnant forever. I was pregnant for 3 years in a row! YIKES! It'll be over soon, you'll be holding what you thought was a newborn that is now a 1 year old in your arms and wonder where the time went!

(BTW, this is Stephanie that usually comments, I changed my real blog address, let me know if you want it)

I love the sight of a finish line.

Or I guess, the starting line in this case.
