2 1/2 years:
I am not the type of person who notices half birthdays, maybe it's because I don't have one. But I do notice half Anniversaries. Yesterday marked 2 1/2 years of marriage for Tim and I. I can't believe that it's been that long. It has gone by sooo fast! We are only half a year from 3 years! wow, really can't believe it. We have had so much fun together and have accomplished so much.
We quite Chuck E. Cheese and got real jobs :), moved 3 times, spent a summer in Idaho, I graduated school, Tim has only 9 classes left, fell more in love, and made a baby! May not sound like much, but yeah looking back where we were 2 1/2 years ago we have come along way! I can't wait to see what we will accomplish with in the next 2 1/2 years! Hopefully have another 2 kids, have a house, and Tim will have a good job that he really enjoys.
6 1/2 weeks:
Drum roll, please!!! We have truly begun to count down the weeks till Zachary makes his appearance! I can't believe that we only have 47 days left. It sounds shorter to me in days than it does in weeks. Counting from 40 weeks down to 6 has felt like forever sometimes but for the most part flew by. I have 4 weeks left at work and then I am resting up for 2 weeks to make up for the loss of sleep I will have for the rest of my life. In my opinion I don't think 2 weeks will be enough or any amount of time, but it will all be worth it when I hold him and see him smile.
We are moving out this month and we are very excited. We found a two bedroom apt and the bedrooms are huge! All I have for his room is a crib and a changing table. I am trying to talk Tim into letting me get a glider chair and hopefully that will fill it up a bit. This new apt is also within the boundaries of our old ward. I am so happy to go back and see all my old friends, and a bunch of them are due with their own babies around the same time Zach is due. So he will have plenty of baby friends to play with, and I will have adults to talk to!
I now have 2 doctors appointments every week till he comes. One normal appointment, and then a non stress test appointment. I am hoping that this will help time go by fast because it gives me something to look forward to. Yesterday the doctor said that he is sill really big. So, a c-section is still a possibility which he said they will do at 39 weeks if not sooner. I am still hoping for a normal delivery though because it's cheaper and I feel like a c- section will rob me of really "experiencing" giving birth. It may sound weird, but I want to feel the labor pains, I want Tim to cut the cord, and I want to hold my baby the second he is born. With a c-section I can't hold him right away, and I need that instant bonding moment. The thought of being cut open just scares me as well. My deepest cut has been a paper cut, and now I have a big possibility of being cut open. But I am preparing for it if it does happen. We can't wait to meet our little man!
