Note - I wrote these down before I had Baby J. Actually, I was working on them when I went into labor! I just thought it would be fun to share them with you. I probably could have written 20 more if the timing hadn't been off. I realize now, though, how crabby I was. And now I'm riding the awesome wave of happiness hormones and I love, love, love every minute of it all now!!
When I had my first child, all I could think about was what life was going to be like when he arrived. Everything seemed so beautiful, the human body was an amazing thing.
Now that I am on to my third baby, my thoughts are changing. Absolutely I'm excited about meeting this little one, and definitely in awe at what I know my body is going to do very soon. But, I also have some very random, sometimes gross, thoughts go through my mind and I thought it would be fun to make a list just for you. Here goes...
Deep Thoughts of Late Pregnancy
-It's so weird packing to go away and not pack any underwear.
-The doctor uses a crochet hook to break your water, right? I have a whole drawer full of those things. Maybe I could give it a whirl......
-I wonder if I'm allowed to bring my own mini fridge to the hospital.
-I hope the sunburn I got on my back doesn't hurt when the rip the tape off from the epidural.
-Hospitals should have Pay Per View movies like hotels, things that you could only normally see in the theaters. I would really like to watch The Help.
-I wonder if I push hard enough this baby will just pop right out.
-Shouldn't the doctor buy me a drink before some of these appointments? I feel like we are a little too close...
-Good job, Em. You filled the cup with enough pee, even though you had to pee 10 minutes before your appointment. Way to go.
-I wonder if anyone has invented a Bella Band for my face. Maybe then I wouldn't look like a bee stung me for the next 4 months.
