I'm not normally a kick counter, but I do pay attention to every nudge and turn and cherish it, so not being able to recall the last time she told me she was there got me out of bed quite quickly. I moved around a bit, drank some water, and laid down on my left side again. Almost immediately I started feeling little hiccups and flutters inside.
I've possibly never loved her more than in that moment.
Today has been productive and I've done more nesting than resting, but I feel good and it's ok. Going through all my baby things I realized we didn't have any baby pants. So, I figured we'd venture out to Target and look for some baby pants and just finish up all the school supply shopping we had left to do.
I bought a pink tee shirt with matching pink pants. Pink with little apple trees. And it wasn't a gift for someone else.
Coming home and organizing all the school supplies and looking at the precious pink baby pants over and over has me feeling ready. For real we are ok. For real she is ok. And for real she is going to be here so very soon.
I've loved every moment I've known there was new life inside my womb. I can only imagine the bliss once she is living and moving with life on the outside.
