Pregnancy Diaries Entry 13: 37 Weeks

Weird to think the pregnancy part of this adventure is coming to a close. I must confess even though I’m probably not ready to actually have a child and I’m sure I’ll be as confused as hell when I take the little bundle home with me. I do feel like I want to be done with the pregnant part. There are days where all I have wanted to do was take off this fat suit and be normal for just a few hours. The things I would do… lie on my stomach, and then lay on my back, then maybe my stomach again.…. I know rebellious right?
I must say with only 2 1/2 weeks left I am feeling very anxious. I excessively make to do lists without checking things off because by the time I get home from work I’m completely exhausted. My house is a disaster with Mason and me trying to reorganize our lives to fit this little person in. At times it feels like this baby is kicking us out of our own home.
They say to get a lot of sleep before the end of pregnancy so you can be ready for labor. Right… Since when do pregnant women get a lot of sleep? The last few nights I have woken up at 4 am and have been unable to fall back asleep mostly because of my massive body but I also think a portion of it is anxiety. I have so many things I feel like I still need to do before she arrives: Organize the nursery, organize the office, find daycare, pack the hospital bag and every time I check something off my list I think of another I need to do. Mason told me the other day I do not need to solve the world’s problems before this baby arrives. Please note I did NOT laugh at this comment.
