The Day has arrived!

And I am a total basket case. We're going in tonight to start evicting Miss Jessica and I have been crying on and off like crazy. I feel her little feet squirming around and get teary-eyed, knowing that I won't be feeling that for much longer at all. I looked down at my gigantic belly in the shower today and lost it. I had to soap up with tears streaming down my face. I won't have my little "shelf" for much longer either!

I had spent the last week hoping that Her Snowiness would wave her white flag and come before today, but that's ok.. with how cruddy the weather has been over the past few days I can't blame her for wanting to stay baking. It's been all dreary, cold and rainy and that makes this mama want to do nothing more than curl up under a blanket! To make matter worse, PUNKsatoni Phil predicted 6 more weeks of this crud back on 2/2. ARGH! Kill Phil! (OK, just kidding about the last part y'all, I promise! They do say "Don't shoot the messenger, right?)

Once I arrive at the hospital we will drag our suitcases (and my own pillow, thank you!) up to L&D and get situated from there. Yikes! Hopefully they'll let me wear my own shirt at least for tonight. I know I'm going to have enough trouble sleeping due to anxiety and excitement brought on by upcoming events- I don't need wearing some foreign, oversized and uncomfy rag to add to the commotion. ;)

Keith just finished packing his suitcase and is now starting to load up the car. Wow, how time flies.

I will be thinking about you all! It's so exciting. Cherish every moment you have left of your pregnancy - I miss my belly and feeling her move inside of me a lot. But the next part is so amazing. The memories of her birth will be with you forever. Good luck mama!

Keeping you in my thoughts and praying for a smooth delivery for you! Oddly enough, I don't miss my belly or the movement as much as I thought I would. I miss it, but just a little. Natalie is right - the next part is just so amazing, and so far just keeps getting better and better!

I thought about you last night just before I fell asleep. Hope L&D went smoothly. There are no words to express the feelings you will feel when Jessica is placed in your arms. :)
