It’s amazing how quickly time speeds up, then slows down, then speeds up again.
At our last OB appointment we scheduled a (dun, dun, dun) c-section (more on that later). Mike is getting big and with my diagnosis of PCOS, chances are he will get even bigger and we would end up doing an emergency c-section anyway. We were in agreement, let’s just cut to the chase.
Since then, everything has sped up. And slowed down. I feel like with the June 5th birthday looming there seems to be so much to do! Everyone is packed for the hospital but me, I need to rest, dust, do everything I will NEVER DO AGAIN WHEN THE BABY COMES … But at the same time, I can’t wait to see his little face (or big face, apparently) and introduce him into a huge family who already loves him so much.
When Mikey asks about his birth, I look forward to telling him what his mommy and daddy did leading up to his birthday. We’ve been eating lots of ice cream, painted pottery and talked about what his arrival would mean, gone to brunch at one of our favorite spots and saw Hangover 3. Plus just spending time pondering what his existence will do to our life, different parenting techniques and what that day and recovery will be like. Plus we have been lazy. A lot.
It’s been a pretty fun few weekends, but things are moving so slow.
