Week of pregnancy: 30 (7 1/2 months)
Time left to go: 2 1/2 months (yikes!)
Weight gained: enough, and that’s not a subject I like to discuss
Recent medical discoveries: negative on diabetes (hoo-ray), also negative on the Rh status (not so hoo-ray, it meant getting a shot, but not a big deal)
Baby supplies purchased: uh, that would be a big, fat zero
Baby supplies still left to purchase: I’m not sure of the number off the top of my head, but all of them is about right
Things still left to do: too many to count or remember
We couldn’t be more excited that our little girl will be here before you know it. For a long time it felt like the end would never come, and now we’re in the home stretch. It is also unbelievably frightening, and I wake up every morning in a sense of panic that we won’t be ready. I know we will be, but this isn’t like packing for a vacation or starting a new job: this is a complete and absolute and permanent life change. In 2 1/2 months, our lives will never be the same again. But they will be better. I can’t wait to meet her.
