Can it really be true? In just four more days I will be having my baby! On one hand, I am excited and so ready to be done with swollen ankles and hemorrhoids, but on the other hand, I'd like to keep him inside forever. I'm going to miss being pregnant and having him all to myself. I cried yesterday when I got the automated call to confirm my weekly prenatal appointment, because it's the last prenatal appointment I'll ever go to. I'm having my tubes tied with the c-section on Friday because three kids has always been my dream family, and because I promised myself when I found out I was pregnant this time that no matter what, I would never be pregnant again. I just can't imagine ever having to go through the terror of the first trimester again, and not knowing whether I was going to lose another baby.
Assuming all goes well, I will be wheeling into the OR four days from now. I just can't wait to meet my true little miracle.
