*Disclaimer: After re-reading, I realize that I'm just rambling. I'm sorry for that, but I can't find a better way to articulate what's in my brain. Thanks for bearing with me!*
Despite every fear and anxiety I've faced since July, Baby G has made it to full term! I think I'm still a little bit in disbelief that we're even here. I honestly never, ever expected to make it this far. Yet here we are, at 38 weeks, happy, healthy and READY!
I do have a few more anxieties, though.
For instance, ......
Holy moly, I'm going to have two kids!
IN SIX DAYS!
I'm nervous about the c-section recovery, about getting into the swing of breast feeding a baby, and about balancing a newborn and a toddler.
I'm feeling a little guilty for not being able to be the Mommy that KB is used to once G gets here. I cried when I put her to bed tonight because, in less than a week, I will miss a lot of bed times. I won't be able to lift her into her crib for a while.
My baby girl is a little bit rambunctious, and I often get clambered over while she's playing. Come Friday, that will be a big no-no. We've been working on "be gentle with Mommy!", but she hasn't quite grasped the concept.
She doesn't understand that there is a baby coming, either. Not that I would expect her to, though.. she's a bit young for that. She does, however, kiss and pet my belly because that's where the baby is. Those are some of my favorite moments.
The good news is that KB is completely obsessed with babies. Whenever she sees a baby, she gets so excited and points it out. I'm just hoping that she still feels that way when there is a baby in her house.
