Let the countdown begin!

I would've posted this yesterday except but I wanted John's happy birthday post to be the only one.

I'm now 13 days away from my due date. I'm seeing the Dr. today, next Wednesday the 10th, and Monday the 15th. I really hope I'm not still pregnant on the 15th, but we'll see. If nothing else, then I'll be induced no later than the 23rd. That means that I will have him in 20 days or less.

I have to admit though, I'm so ready for him to show his face. I feel like I've been pregnant for so long and waiting so long for him and now that it's so close it seems unreal.

The last couple of weeks I've started to get nervous about labor and delivery. Not about anything going wrong, more like, I won't know when I'm in labor because I didn't start naturally with Malachi, or I won't be able to keep track of my contractions. Really, I'd prefer it if my water would break to let me know.

Malachi hasn't been sleeping very well at night. John and I are starting to explore the idea that it's time to stop naps pretty soon. I think we're going to wait for a bit because it'll be nice to have a couple of hours during the day when I can still nap. I'm a firm believer in "quiet time" for kids once they're done napping. I think we'll have Malachi sit in his room and read books, or play quietly with his toys. That way mom and dad will have some time everyday to chill and make sure we're not going crazy. :)

Best of luck on segundo/a! I remember around this time last year. My wife was ordered on bed rest the last two months of her pregnancy and she was going stir crazy (she delivered on our segunda in early March). Having two kids is quite the adjustment, but it is totally worth it. I wish you a healthy delivery!

Congrats on being so close to meeting your new little one! I found your husband's blog when doing a search on class 2 medical clearance. . . My Hubby is in the midst of the FSO hoop-jumping process. . . Came across your blog and am very happy to meet you!
