of course we can ‘t hold anything too firmly; but um, guys???—- we’ve got 10 days left.
how’d that happen?? i remember the excitement of the last 10 days of school. i remember saying to The Mr. there’s only 10 days until we get married!!! (that was LOTSA 10 days ago!!!) 10 seems like a very quick number, no??
usually 10 days can fly by. but i hope this won’t. people ask me if it’s dragged on or gone quickly- and for once, i say that “it’s gone by appropriately”. which is surprising. The Mr & I talk a lot about “gosh: where’d the time go”… yes. we’re already old fuddy-duddies. but we were that way well before we decided to have a Little Bean.
everything up to this point has been appropriately timed. i hope LB will stay on schedule. I really would be sad to miss out on my last 10 days of being w/ The Mr & by myself. i want to enjoy my last 10 days just as i would before in the summers. which is great. b/c 2 weeks is about my limit for being in the house w/o going stir-crazy.
i know i have been incredibly fortunate thru all this. any complaint i can make is pretty minor. i know there are lotsa women who want it to be over with by this point in their pregnancy. they’re huge. uncomfortable. swollen. hot. miserable… i consider myself very lucky. i’m totally fine w/ carrying LB. in fact, i may even miss it. the bean has been very very good to me.
so— am i/are we ready? sure. but that doesn’t mean we’re rushing it!!!
