I’ve come to the realization that this baby is just preparing us for a lifetime of testing our patience. And you know what? I’m actually perfectly okay with patiently waiting for our little babe to decide when he/she is ready to meet us! We’re so excited, and only getting more and more excited as each day passes! But what is really wearing my patience thin, is people constantly texting and calling me asking if the baby is here yet. I am the worst texter to begin with (mostly because I hate texting), so I have been ignoring pretty much everybody – which makes me feel so rude, but I honestly just don’t have the energy to answer the same question 50x a time when it’s fairly obvious that the baby is still in my freakin’ belly. Okay, I’m finished my little venting session. 😄
This week has been a roller coaster ride of different emotions for me. Maybe it’s just hormones or exhaustion, but I feel more moody in the past week than I have in my entire pregnancy. We are scheduled for an ultrasound and non-stress test on Wednesday, and then I will be induced. We still have our fingers crossed that the baby will just come on it’s own terms before that.
My parents got here on Thursday, which has definitely brightened my spirits! It has been so nice having them here, and Joey is finally off work for a few days. He and my dad went snowmobiling yesterday, and today. My mom brought a big tray of Christmas cookies, so baby and I have been eatin’ gooooood. We all went over to Joey’s parent’s house last night for a delicious steak and lobster dinner. It was so good – I think I’m still full! 😂 We intended on only going over for a few hours, but it ended up being 1:30 am before we came home! I was definitely ready for bed by the time I crawled into bed.
Anyways, Merry Christmas Eve! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with your families! I know we will! 😊
P.S. How exciting is it that this is officially my LAST pregnancy update?!?! I hope you’re all prepared for the non-stop Baby Rich spam you’re in for! 😎
