The end is near!

Tonight, I am sitting in bed thinking...

I can hardly believe that I will be a MOM sometime in the next 2 weeks!! What?!! I have dreamed about this for so long and it's coming so soon that I am almost in shock that it's really happening!

Tomorrow is my last day of work! How is it possible that it's my turn to take maternity leave???!

I have a nursery, baby products all over the house and a precious cradle next to my bed just waiting for a baby girl to come and LIVE AT OUR HOUSE FOREVER!

As hard as I try, it's just not possible for me to picture what she will look like. Will she have hair, will she be little or big, will she have my features or Matt's?? Obviously it doesn't matter but I just can't wait to put a face to her precious name!

My mind is racing with thoughts about labor, being at hospital and basically all of the unknowns but I know that it will all be perfect when I get to meet Preslee for the first time!

I absolutely can not wait to see Matt holding his little girl! I don't think he can even imagine how much he is going to be in love with her. And I feel like I may fall in love all over again watching him with her!

I'm just thanking God that my dream is about to come true! Oh My Goodness... I am about to be a MOTHER!!

Wow! This post made me cry! I had my first (and only, right now) son 17 months ago and sometimes I still sit and think, "Wow, I'm a mom to this precious little boy!" I love reading your blog and am so happy for you. Congrats!

I don't know you personally but have followed you for awhile :) What is so special about reading your post is that while reading it, I am feeding my lil man his bedtime bottle and got goosebumps! Our baby is 7 weeks today and we, too, struggled with infertility and were blessed on Sept 27, 2011 to welcome our angel into the world!! And 7 weeks ago, I had all the thoughts you shared!! As you know though...it's going to be amazing!!! I love being a Mommy and I sit here now in disbelief that he is really MINE!!!! Congrats to your family!!!!!!

Oh, you made me cry too!! I can't wait for that moment either and was just thinking about the same things earlier today - will he have hair, what colour, how big will he be? I'm so excited for you that that precious time is coming so soon :) xxx

You will be a TERRIFIC mother. I can't wait to see all of the picutres. Enjoy these few days, or weeks, of time just at home. God bless your family!!!

Carrie said...

Even though I don't really KNOW you, I feel like I know you. I've followed your journey and I just can't tell you how happy I am for you. We have similar stories and although infertility is heartbreaking and frustrating and scary....I really feel kind of thankful for it and I wonder if you might feel the same way?? I think it makes you TRULY appreciate this precious gift of a baby. It makes you realize just how incredibly lucky you are. I think a lot of people take pregnancy and having children for granted. Anyway, you are going to be the BEST mommy!! I'm so happy for you!

Taylor said...

Couldn't possibly be happier for you.... it is YOUR turn!!!! Can't wait to see Preslee too :) I think she will come out wearing a bow hahaha.... Praying for a smooth delivery and hospital stay! I know life is definitely going to be a whirlwind here soon, but I wanted to ask you some questions about your salon/((assuming))cosmetology school expierence/etc!

Sara said...

I am so excited for you! I still catch myself in disbelief that I am a Mom, even two years later.

I can't wait to see pictures of sweet Preslee and you and Matt with your little girl. From the moment she gets here you will forget life before her!!

I love your blog and I, too, think back to those same feelings, only mine were 17 years ago! I remember being only DAYS away from my little girl, and I, too, just couldn't put a face to that baby girl until she was born and then, you will be in awe! I am so excited for you, even though I don't know you! One thing's for sure....you know she'll be cute!
