    Can't believe he's so close! Thanks for being real throughout your whole pregnancy. If I have to read one more blog about how pregnancy is just THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER and EVERYTHING IS PERFECT … UGH. I'm going to be a hot mess so it's nice to know others out there are realistic about it hah.

    Single digits! Good grief!!! I'm happy to hear that I'm about to get so uncomfortable that I won't be so terrified! I have also been dealing with lots of anxiety lately and I can't even handle it. I swear, I rub lavender oil on my pressure points every hour just to get myself to calm down. Thinking about you in these next few weeks!

    ahhh, you are so close!! I remember that slightly panicked feeling…like that baby has to come out oh my lord! but you can do amazing things, and meeting that little babe is worth the panic. you will do great!

    I think you are definitely right. You become so uncomfortable that you actually look forward to giving birth. As someone that has gone through it I can tell you that labor is not fun but it is also not unbearable. It only lasts for some hours and then you get to have your beautiful baby forever. Also, that moment when you finally get to hold and meet your son is so magical that it may be the best memory of your entire life. Instead of focusing on the pain just think about how wonderful it will be to meet your baby.

    Yes, yes and yes. I totally remember all of these feelings. I think it's some sort of survival tactic — you get so sick of being pregnant that you cease to be afraid of the birth anymore because you just want that baby out so badly! But you're right to cherish those special moments while it's just you and your hubby, because they will be few and far between for the next few years. Hang in there this week, you're doing great!! Can't wait to see the first photo of Baby Jack.

    I feel like we're soul sisters. Chick fil A – was brought to me for two of my 4 meals in the hospital and it was glorious! Ahhh, I'm so excited for you guys. And I love your comments about Chris and being a team. Isn't that the best feeling ever? You want some good news? That team mentality is about to get kicked into high gear when your little man makes his arrival. I wish I could tell you that the uncomfortable part gets better but it doesn't until you have your baby in your ams. I remember the first time I rolled over after I had given birth and I was like… woah. That was so easy! Ariana came 7 days early and it surprised the heck outta me so maybe you won't even have to wait the full 9 days. Whenever he makes his appearance will be the perfect time. So excited for you! xoxo

    "When you're 38 weeks pregnant on your anniversary, you may not get mimosas with brunch, but you do get double servings of pancakes…so really, it all works out."

    Hahaha, I love this.

    How cool + reassuring you got to tour the hospital beforehand- definitely puts your mind at ease knowing where you'll be + what the process is. šŸ™‚

    And happy 3 years!

    It is so true that feeling uncomfortable is the only thing that combats the terror. When I was pregnant, I remember my mom telling me that the end of pregnancy discomfort is God's way of getting you ready to give birth because you're so miserable you'll do anything for your pregnancy to be over. And you're not alone in crying about the hospital tour. I did the exact same thing, and as you can now attest to, being able to visualize where it will all take place is so helpful. Pregnancy and birth are full of so many unknowns, and those little things help so much when it all feels so out of your control.

    YOU GOT THIS, GIRL!!! And I felt the same way on Christmas morning–our last Christmas just us?! Whaaat?! But really, you're right, and it stopped being "just us" the moment we found out we'd be having a baby! I'm hoping the last few days pass quickly for you. Can't wait to see the adorable baby pictures!!!!!
