Baby Jacyn, Lilly, and I had a very productive day (!!)
I was on my feet for longer-than-normal today, which is not really that long, but it means my back is sore and it is time for the couch and some ice, but I am still excited about what we accomplished today…
The guest bedroom has been covered in “hospital bag” gear for a long time and, after today, I am finally almost ready to put it all in the bag and zip it up until Jacyn arrives.
Today I did not have physical therapy, but still needed to run a few errands.
I decided it might be a good idea to prepare a few frozen meals to have after Baby Jacyn gets here, so last night I compiled a list of goodies I needed to make a few meals.
It probably takes me longer than it should to prepare only these few meals, as I have no clue what I am doing.
While I was chopping, I finished the final load of laundry that needed to be done before Baby Jacyn gets here.
By the time I completed these tasks, plus a tiny bit of cleaning, I felt sore and ready to sit, but I still wanted to be productive, so I decided to start some crafts (!!)
My Mom explained to me that when they had babies, they all passed out cigars to their visitors. I am sure Hubby Ben would love to pass out cigars, but I decided to come up with something different…
It has been a busy day and I am hoping it helps me sleep better tonight…
Not that I have been sleeping horribly, but it just seems to take me a while to fall asleep. I actually cry almost every night after getting in bed. I know, poor Ben.
I’m sure this is a mix of pregnancy emotions, hormones, and nerves. I am excited to meet Baby Jacyn, but it makes me nervous to think about how much our lives are about to change.
As I try to fall asleep, I think about how much I love the way things are now, with Ben, Lilly, and I, and I know that even the most simple parts of our lives are about to change and it makes me very anxious.
But don’t worry, I know the change will be amazing (!!)
Love, ~Ann & Baby Jacyn
