Much of this week has been spent washing bottles, organizing the nursery and making a list of all the last-minute things I need to pick up before baby Otis arrives. I’m sure there will be some things that slip through the cracks, or things that I have that he doesn’t like, but I truly feel like I’ve done as much research with books and of course with my friends, that I’m as prepared as I can possibly be…
With that being said, I thought that would calm my nerves a little bit, but it hasn’t. I had hoped that because I was as “prepared” I’d at least feel semi-confident going into this new chapter of our lives, but I have to admit it’s pretty scary. I’m trying not to drive myself crazy with “what if’s” but so far it’s not working!
My doctor cleared me to travel this week, so I made the trip down to Daytona with Kevin. On the plane, I remembered in February as we were going to Daytona for the 500 I felt baby Otis move for the first time. It seems like forever ago! I had waited on that day since we found out we were expecting. Now, I almost take baby Otis moving for granted because it happens so often throughout the day, but I’ll be honest, it’s not something that I’m going to miss.
Although my pregnancy has been easy (knock on wood), and by easy I mean I never got sick, I always had energy and I never experienced any complications, I’m not one of those women that loved being pregnant. I will feel much better when I get my body back and get back to normal, and yes I use that term loosely as I know baby Otis is going to change everything.
I’m looking forward to being his mom, not “cooking” him!
