waiting and waiting...

Today I went out and ran some errands. It was nice to be able to make my stops alone, big sister stayed home w/ daddy. I went to my favorite place, Target. :) Then went to the grocery store. I am stocking up on things, or trying to stock up before baby comes. I am 38.2 weeks pregnant today... We are just waiting. I had a "good" night's sleep last night, only woke up twice. lol The night before I woke up every hour. I did wake up today in a lot of discomfort. The bottom of my feet hurt, making it difficult to walk. I have some very mild cramps, very mild and sporadic contractions, pain in places I didn't know existed. BUT with all that said and done, I am very happy that baby sister is staying put and I will miss my fat belly. lol I love feeling her move around and will miss it. BUT I am SO looking forward to seeing her for the first time and holding her. I think what excites me the most is to see my daughter meet her sister. She keeps asking for her and it's so cute.

I am dreading the hospital stay. I have NEVER been apart for long from my daughter. I've always been here to put her in bed, I will miss it so much! She will be staying home at night with daddy, during the day she'll be with friends and family. That makes me feel better, knowing she'll be home with daddy. But I already miss her so much. It hit me today how weird it will be that my husband will be going to bed alone. I've never been gone. lol He has gone out of town, but I never have.
I know once I have my baby is in my arms I'll feel much better and my worries will be gone.
