3 weeks from tomorrow, Baby D will be entering the world! Unless the Lord has other plans, of course. But as of right now, we are scheduled for a c-section on Friday, December 21st. In a way, I cannot believe it is so close. 3 weeks! I have to do so much still to get the nursery ready….

In another way, I cannot believe I still have 3 weeks to go. I feel like I have been pregnant forever this time. With Big Boy, I had nothing else to concentrate on except being pregnant – I sat at work for 8 months and loved every minute of it. This time, the pain is more evident – I’m more active chasing after the Big Boy, and while I haven’t felt like I’ve had the time to count every day as with the first pregnancy, it has seemed like a much longer time.

I think I’ve written about this before – maybe earlier this month. Baby D, don’t get me wrong. I’ve loved all the same things about being pregnant – knowing that my body is being used to grow a big, strong baby boy, being able to feel you move (and move and move!)… But I am so ready to hold you in my arms! Seeing our family complete (again, unless the Lord has other plans) will be absolutely amazing! And spending Christmas day this year at home, surrounded with love and family… I am so excited!

We get to have another ultrasound with you in 2 weeks, Baby D. I’ll post the pictures when I can. I love you and can’t wait to meet you!
