39 Weeks!

Well, it's the end of the road. Brynn has officially decided to live in my uterus forever, therefore she is being forced out in the morning.

I have to admit... I'm a little nervous.

I doubt I'll get much sleep tonight. Not only is the LOST series finale going to keep me up until almost midnight, the hospital is suppose to call sometime between 4am and 8am to let me know what time to report to the hospital.

So I'm looking at 4 hours of sleep at the most. That's if I sleep.

I certainly want to shower in the morning, but because the hospital usually only gives you an hour to get there, that means I have to get up around 4am no matter what. I guess I can always shower and then lay back down until they call... {pfft, yeah right.}

Well.... we got a lot done this weekend, so I'm excited about that! Bob took it upon himself to completely redo the front garden area of our house. He put in all new stones, mulch, and flowers and it looks soooooo pretty! Seeeee:
I have to admit, I was a little nervous when Bob woke up on Saturday morning and said he wanted to take on this HUGE project. I had to remind him that, once he started, he HAD to finish it this weekend because there would be so many people coming to our house when we got home from the hospital. He said he could have it done.... and he did {with the help of our brother-in-law, Ryan!} =)

Besides that, the inside of the house is completely clean, the laundry is all caught up, there's food in the house, the dishes are done, and we're all packed up and ready for the hospital.

We went out for a nice dinner with my parents tonight. And when they left the house, they took Carter's over night bag as well as his carseat. {But they didn't take Carter... I want him here with ME tonight!}

It seems so real now. This is really happening.

I'm making sure I spend some extra cuddle time with my Carter Man tonight and I also find myself staring at my belly a lot. While it's huge and uncomfortable, I'm going to miss it when it's gone. I'm going to miss my baby girl moving around in there.

But I'd rather have her in my arms.

Pregnancy: 39 weeks {belly pics taken at 39w1d}
