So, yesterday I was feeling a bit down about it being 7 days until the baby is here. And then today again down bc 6 days (time is going sloooowwwww) I had to give myself a pep talk and explain that I knew this was going to be the LONGEST week of my life lol but it is JUST 6 days. Then my dad gave me his credit card to go to Target to get my mom a Keurig anddddd everythin suddenly became better lol. I started saying "tomorrow its only 5 days!" And I plan to go finish my baby shopping tomorrow. I think that bc Monday all I did was go to the doctor and today was just work and sitting around ...making plans to do something makes it seem like this week is going to fly by. Maybe that's my shopping addiction talking too lol. I still have to go shopping for a simple/washable/messupable lol diaper bag (currently have a nice coach one that I am only pulling out for NICE days) a diaper organizer a bath chair for my parents house another bed spread for my bed (after birth bleeding TMI I know) and I think that's its. So that will help with tomorrow.... And then Thursday I'm setting up my parents basement for the days I am going to be there my daughter also goes to Jersey to see her father for Eid (muslim holiday) so then Friday I go to my last day of work come home and organize everything here Saturday I'm going to pamper myself make sure I have EVERYTHING ready to go. Sunday I'm doing a special mother daughter day going to the farm to see the animals and going to a halloween festival and then taking a shower doing my hair for the hospital stay and then going to bed early to be ready for Monday morning!!! its now becoming exciting! I was so affraid I was going to be miserable! Now I just keep thinking tomorrow when I wake up its going to be 5 days. Sighhhhh

Are you being induced that you know exactly when baby is going to be here? Shopping for baby always brightens my mood too ;) Don't worry, every mother gets anxious. Enjoy these last few days :)

and just wanted you to know, that you don't have bipolar emotions. You may be hormonal if anything ;-)

I feel like my emotions from this pregnancy are WAY more out of control then with my first. Its like I am more in touch/excited/anxious about this baby then i was with my first. I am having a repeat csection *my daughter was a csection & the hospital I go to doesn't do the whole PLANNED vbac thing lol*.



I am totally a hormonal mess lol. In fact I am just a mess in general as I can't stop sweating - im tired even after 9 hours of sleep - and I am in love with ice.... sighhh im ready for her to be here already!!!
