I know many of you have known this for a while. It has been a fact for 32 weeks and 4 days. Why am I announcing it again now?! Well, that’s because it just hit me. Of course, I’ve felt the kicks & seen her on the ultrasounds. I’ve known she’s coming, but it still hadn’t fully hit me. This weekend, that changed.
On Saturday after visiting with my mom, we went out and bought a few of the necessities we need to have at home. While purchasing the diapers, wipes, pacifiers, & laundry detergent it hit me that WE ARE HAVING A BABY! In just a few weeks, I will be holding her in my arms. This revelation has brought up so many emotions.
At first, I was scared to death! How am I going to do everything we do with two kids? Do I go to the grocery with them or does this start a new trend of leaving them at home while grocery shopping on my own? How will I get a shower, much less sleep? I know I’m not the first person in the world to have two children. Many have more than that. They all manage fine. I will too. I’ve been thinking about how things would be when she got home. However, purchasing these things made it all real.
After the anxiety subsided, I started getting really excited. In just a few weeks, 7 or so, she will be here!! We will have another member in our family. Wow. This is something we have hoped and prayed for. She was definitely planned, and we can’t wait to welcome her.
During the excitement, I realized for her to get here in 7 weeks she has to come out. Again, there was anxiety. I’m really hoping once it’s time for her to get here, I’ll be ready to “get her out”. I know I was with Sydney. I’m hoping the same happens this time. As of now, I’m happy waiting for her arrival…in 7 weeks. 🙂
