Today is my one month mark until my due date (July 18th)! Only four more weeks to go until our little bambino arrives. It's hard to imagine that in four weeks (or less) I will be holding our son. It is still so surreal to me. I see my big belly, I feel and see the baby moving (which weirds Josh out by the way), and my doctors have yet to tell me I'm not pregnant. Of course I know I'm not going to be pregnant forever, but to go from one day to not having a baby to having a baby is pretty wild.
This whole month we have been pretty busy with getting everything ready for our son's arrival. I think we are just about ready. I keep saying the baby has to wait until Josh is finished with his boards. Well, Josh takes his boards this coming Monday (on his 25th birthday) and after boards the baby can come whenever he would like (just as long as it's not after his due date). Josh actually has the last two weeks of June off and would love it if the baby came then, but we'll see. Those are my last two weeks of work and I wouldn't hate to be done working early, but I'm pretty sure I have no control over when I go into labor.
Josh will actually be taking his boards in Dayton, so we'll be traveling home this weekend. At first I was really hesitant about traveling during my last month of pregnancy but my husband, father, and mother-in-law all assured me I will be okay. I actually asked my father what he thought about me traveling this close to my due date. Thinking my over-protective father was going to back me up, he told me he drove my mother out west during her last month of pregnancy and she was fine. Josh's mom told me she traveled even closer to her due date. I was clearly out numbered. No worries, I will just be super prepared. I told Josh I will be packing the car like we are planning on having the baby in Dayton. Here is what I'm thinking…if I am prepared and ready for the baby to come, he won't come. So last night I got everything ready and packed for the baby.
Call me crazy but I feel like I already posted about me traveling during my last month of pregnancy. Maybe I'm just having serious pregnancy brain today but I feel like I've already mentioned this. So if I have, I'm sorry. I'm pregnant.
