28 Weeks Pregnant – Anxiously Excited

We’re now 28.5 weeks pregnant which means I am rapidly approaching the 30 week point. Up until this point I have not put much thought into who little Mia will be. To be honest, I’m getting anxious. I’m enjoying pregnancy but now that I feel like I’m in that home stretch I’m started to get excited at the thought of having her here. It’s nice being the incubator and all but I’m looking forward to the day when I can share her with my husband and her sisters.

My dreams have been so unreal lately, they’re either soft and cuddly or totally horrifying. I have always enjoyed the crazy dreams up until they recently when they’ve become downright scary. So are the aches and pains that are almost constant. Most days I either want to eat or sleep all day. This baby better be packing on the pounds because I sure am afraid to jump on the scale.

We spent some time in labor and delivery this week. I got a peak at the place where I will give birth and am glad to say that the stress of the past few weeks has finally died down and Mia is doing great once again. The last thing any parent wants to do is end up giving birth to a child who’s not supposed to come. I think we’ll be fine but it was reassuring to know the hospital staff is very caring when we do need them. It was so surreal to be hooked up to the monitors and yet a simple glimpse of what is to come.

The happiest days of my life were the days I gave birth to my children. Each of those days brings back a flood of emotions, all joyful. I’m looking forward to the day I meet you Mia but am so glad you’re staying put for now. I’ll keep you to myself for just a bit longer.

    I can remember how you feel. Seems like day & night are all one at one time. We won’t even go into that. But I use to drink decaf tea before bed. Seemed to help with the horrid dreams. You are in our prayers, God is continuing life with your soon to be here little one. Thank God for life.
