8 Months In!

Ocho. Yup, that's right 8. I'm eight months today and pretty soon my bubby will be here. Wowzers! Seems like it went by fast, then it feels like it goes by really slow. But every Sunday gets just a little more exciting to count down the days :)

I have nothing interesting to add this month except that I'm pretty close to the big day. I'm glad Summer's coming to an end, it really sucked this year. Especially since I broke my foot and all. I'm not really a Summer as much as I used to be, weird.

I can't believe I made it this far though, pretty crazy still. I think these last two months are just going to come so fast, I'm scared! Well nervous mostly, but I'm also anxious for her to get here. I want to meet her so bad! I have no idea when she plans on arriving, before or after her due date, but we shall see. If I make it all the way to 40, I'll die. Just kidding.

I'm finding out these last minute "preparations" are a bit crazy to handle. Like birth plan and getting the overnight bag ready. Despite all the madness, it still doesn't take away how ecstatic I am about the whole thing and constantly recapping the journey it was to make it this far!

It might be weird to think that sometimes I don't want her to actually leave my belly. I feel like she's protected from any danger from the outside world, and I know where's she at at all times. As much as I want her to stay, I also want her to get out :P just so I can hold her already! But I'm not going to wish for it, I don't want her coming too soon. I know she'll come out when she's good and ready, so I have to keep playing this darn waiting game a couple months more.

Ehh, it's all worth it :D

Can't wait till October!

I love you Sariah <3

P.S has anyone seen the commercials for The Baby Wait show? I just watched the first episode a couple days ago, stuff is depressing as crap man. Especially when the series actually starts two days after my due date -_- yeah, that's really depressing to me. But I know for sure I'm not giving my girl up! No way :)

7 Months In!

Which mean 'tis the beginning of third trimester! 7 months in, only two to go! Holy Batman, this would now be the time where I feel like it's going by very quickly. Of course, I don't have everything set up, so here goes the pressure!

On the surface everything still feels the same. I'm just more sluggish and so cannot wait for this stupid cast to come off next Monday. The heat hasn't been helping and I could just imagine how sweaty and gross it's getting inside it :/ I think that's my biggest complaint so far.

And then the loverly glucose test tomorrow -_- what fun that will be, hopefully I pass it.

On the bright side my baby shower is coming up soon, on my birthday which is the 13th! I have mostly everything done, except the decorations I'm going to make fresh before the shower. I'm actually really excited to have one, kind of surreal that this time the shower is actually for me.

Last but not least, Little Miss Sariah is doing fine from what I can tell. She sure loves wedging her little butt into my ribs, hopefully she'll start to move down like they're supposed to. She's definitely mastered the art of kicking, and I just happen to be her punching bag. But in a way I don't mind, least I know she's alive in there.

I cheated a bit and helped myself to a cup of decaf coffee and it was delish! Haven't had coffee in like 5 months, which is a world record! Well for me at least :P

Also now know what it's like to have an outie belly button...huh.
