This pregnancy has definitely been filled with many emotions and thankfully my wonderful husband has seen me through every one of them. Last night, a whole new emotion hit me! Last week, I was still stuck at the 1cm mark and the doctor recommended that we try a few things to help little Lyla along. One of those things was walking. So, Jeff and I have been trying to get out at night (because goodness knows, it is waaay too hot to walk during the day-especially in this body). We came in and I immediately got back to working on our thank you cards (yes, they are coming-sorry friends for the delay) I sent a text to a my sister letting her know that we had a doctor's appointment today and that we had just come in from strolling around the block trying to speed this process up-AND THAT'S WHEN THE MELT DOWN BEGAN!
For the past few weeks, I have thought of nothing more than getting this baby here. I am uncomfortable in the heat, I am tired of this body, and I am just down right ready to meet my little girl! However, last night, it really hit me that WE ARE ABOUT TO HAVE A LITTLE GIRL! I called Jeff into the bedroom (he was washing dishes-a lot of dishes-we don't have a dish washer, so we have to hand wash them and they can very quickly pile up!-Since he was helping me out, it made the melt down even worse. )I just sobbed and sobbed to him that it wouldn't be just US anymore and how I didn't want things to change between us. I know that I am such a lucky girl to have found such an amazing husband and I don't want one bit of what we have to change. It just really hit me that while we are patiently waiting on Miss Lyla, I really need to soak up this last bit of Just Jeff time. We go back to the doctor today and I still hope that we are progressing along, but for now, I am just going to enjoy every second I have with the most wonderful husband in the world:)
