ashton's birthday

ashton will be born tomorrow sometime between 4:30pm - 6pm. i am nervous but excited. not looking forward to the recovery. which i have read/heard can take at least a month up to several months :o(. i am not supposed to be climbing any stairs after surgery (not sure for how long). i suppose it is unfortunate that i live on a second floor apartment (haha :o/). it also means i will be cooped up in this apartment for sometime. i was really looking forward to taking ashton on walks before my birthday (which is only 2weeks away! omg). but it is what it is and i just have to be thankful that ashton will (finally) be here! i pray he is healthy and does well with the surgery. i won't relax until i hear him crying for the first time.  

i still haven't packed a hospital bag! and we just NOW found a pediatrician (seriously like a few mins ago)! david started his paternity leave today so we plan on getting a ton of errands done. i have to go to the hospital to get blood work done for tomorrow (yay just what i love to do). last night, david and i went to target to get me some "c-section" clothes (read: frumpy, 2 sizes to big, ugly clothing that won't rub on my incision). pregnancy has finally made me miserable (i am so done!). turning over in bed is difficult/uncomfortable (i've started sleeping on the couch. i have a hard time getting in and out of our bed and heartburn is HELL). i bet i won't even get a wink of rest tonight! david thinks it's strange how this will be our LAST day/night as just us! tomorrow we will be parents (OMG!).

i am glad my mother came down for a week. we had so much fun, it was relaxing to have her around. i wish she was still here (she left yesterday). it makes me sad that i live so far away from her. in fact, because we had been spending so much time with them, last night i felt like something was missing. (i miss you mom!). it was a sad feeling. well, i'm not sure when i will be updating this blog again. i'm sure i will before my c-section tomorrow, but just in case, please pray that everything goes well!
