I was one of those women who didn't want to make my whole blog about my pregnancy, but then I realized after getting pregnant that my pregnancy is pretty much my whole life right now. And hey aren't you supposed to blog about what you know and about your life?
It's kind of hard to believe that in around 5 weeks my baby will be considered a full term baby. So I can literally have a baby in anywhere from 5-10 weeks! Which is exciting and a relief! I'm so excited to be able to "see" the end of this pregnancy near.
I'm grateful that God has blessed me with the chance to be pregnant and have a child of my own, but I sure haven't enjoyed being pregnant like a lot of ladies have. I've been ready to have this baby pretty much from day 1.
I'm very excited to start the next chapter of motherhood. I can't wait to get his "routine" down and dress him in all the cute little baby clothes. I can't wait to go shopping with him and show him off... hopefully people won't be to touchy. Germs yuck! I can't wait to rock him to sleep, see him smile, hear him laugh. I can't wait to watch him grow, which is something I don't hear many people say. But I realize that I am blessed with around 18 years to teach him as much as I can about God, life, etc. and then it will be up to him to live his life. I can't wait to see who he has his first crush on. I want him to grow and mature so that when the time comes I'll know he's ready.. so begin the growing up because I can't wait to see what God has in store. I'm sure I'll be sad when he can't fit into his NB clothes, when he graduates preschool, when he graduates middle school, first date, first girlfriend, graduates high school, etc., but I take comfort in knowing that, that's the way it's supposed to be.
My husband is excited as well. I know he's ready for me to not be pregnant anymore so I won't be so sore and complaining about being sore, etc. But he also can't wait to meet Seth and just be a dad. I know he'll make a great dad, he loves kids and kids love him. I also know he'll be a loving father. And by that I mean he won't be afraid to discipline him when it's necessary, even if it hurts him to do it (Like God does with his children). There are to many guys becoming fathers that don't know how to be a father, they want to be the fun guy that has no real attachments and doesn't have to enforce the rules, but that's just not the way it works. I'm thankful to be married to such a wonderful man!
Not to much longer!
