Good news: I am just about a week away from my due date :)) I don't think I have ever been more excited for anything. I would have a countdown chain, but due to the fact that she could come at any time I don't want to get ahead of myself.
Bad news: Baby girl Anderson looks like she is very comofortable and things are progressing slowly so in the words of my doctor, "be mentally prepared for your due date to come and go. Be patient." For a girl who is not very patient this week ( we are guessing we will add on days for baby girl's late arrival. She is just like her mamma, showing up casually late;) ) is going terribly slow.
This pregnancy is coming to an end and as excited as I am to finally get to hold this human being that kris and I get to call our own, I am sad that I won't be able to watch her squirm around in my tummy or be able to just sit and stare. So this last week I am soaking in every second I get to hold my very large-basketball shaped tummy, watch her kick off my phone, bowls, etc.. when I put it on my stomach, and watch my husband's face in awe every time she does a big roll around. Never fails. Sometimes it gets uncomfortable, but this little girl can do anything to my body and I wouldn't change a thing.
This pregnancy has been amazing to me. I have been so lucky to have such an amazing husband/family/ friends to share it with. Without Kris I probably would have been a wreck 99% of the time so I owe him a big big thank you for loving me at my not so loving moments.
Kris and I are both overwhelmed with excitement and can't wait to welcome the third member to our family :)
This very unplanned surprise has turned out to be the biggest blessing in our lives. The man upstairs truly has his own plan for us and even though at times we may not understand, without fail they are the best ones :)
