I know the baby ticker on my sidebar says 21 days until my due date, but as of today the actual countdown in 12 days!!! At my last appointment/ultrasound Gracie was still in breech position-so they went ahead and scheduled a c-section for Sunday August 21st! Why does 12 days seem like a lifetime away? I'm hoping that time will continue to go as quickly as it has the rest of my pregnancy, praying for patience and hoping that I can use this time to get things done and enjoy our time as a family of 3.
It's funny, now that I know there is an end I don't really know what to do with myself. A lot of times I find myself pacing, just waiting I guess, trying to pass the time. I think we are all in waiting mode. Every morning Preston gets a stool and sits by the pack n play. He just stares at it. He brought a mobile up from downstairs and plays the music and talks about baby Grace and being a big brother. The other day he told how it was going to be a 'big responsibility.' He likes to talk about how he will protect her and lay by her...it's so sweet. I cannot wait for them to meet!
Almost everything is ready. The bassinet needs to be brought up, the car seat installed, and my hospital bag packed. There is nothing left to do but wait and practice patience!!
