The Home Stretch

One month from today, Emma will be here (unless she decides to follow her older brother's example and come a bit early).

With a scheduled c-section, however, this little lady has an eviction notice posted. Which means that we are also on notice.

Is it just me, or is Pregnancy Time kind of weird? You find out you are pregnant and the first trimester crawls by. I seriously do not think time could go any slower. The time until your first appointment, first ultrasound, first listen to the heartbeat seems to inch past you. Part of it is probably the exhaustion, sickness, and, for us infertiles, the fear and unease of every twinge, pull, and "sign" of things going right or wrong.

Once the second trimester kicks in and movement quickly follows, it's like time catches up. Things start flying by. But even then, you feel like you have forever. The baby won't be here for months becomes your standard response to people asking you if you are ready. Suddenly, however, it's gone from months to weeks and, soon, days.

M is upstairs putting up curtain rods and wall art. I am going to iron the curtains during Will's nap and get them up. I have been waiting for the curtains to be up for awhile. I feel like it's going to make a huge difference in the room. So will the wall art. Just those little finishing touches that make it seem more personal, give it that little extra je ne sais quois (wow, look at me, busting out high school French).

And Will is closing the computer lid. So that's all for now.

I just cant believe it is so close! Really!!

But I know how you feel about "Pregnancy Time" its something completely different from all other aspects of life.

What is your favorite purchase that you have made for Emma?

It seems like just yesterday that you were announcing you were pregnant. I cannot wait for Emma!

It is what it is said...

Adorable nursery. What a lovely, tranquil place to be.

beautiful nursery! i love the shelves on the wall and the asymmetrical way you hung them.

Am also a little jealous of your scheduled c-section and knowing you won't go beyond that date. Really really hoping that S follows in G's footsteps and comes early as well.

We are so close I can taste it!

I have one week till my due date, and no end in sight, and it's crawling by so slowly. It's odd how fast things went until I hit 36 weeks and suddenly everything is taking so long!

And I still don't have a crib either! Not that I need one right away. But this poor child has no space of her own in our home right now. Kind of sad.

Emma's nursery is beautiful!

I can't believe how time has flown. Wow. I know what you mean, though. "I have plenty of time to finish those blankets I keep meaning to crochet!" Maybe I'll finish them before they're two...
