pending husbands arrival

they are sending the husband home tomorrow for 10 full days, which of course is before the birth of the baby, but I'll take it. You know when someone is about to arrive and you have all of the expectations in your head?  Ya know you plan little segments on how things are going to unravel .. As false as these expectations maybe we all create them. Well I have a couple for you.. here we go!

I plan on sleeping majority of Saturday.. not kidding. I plan on taking a big fat sleeping pill, putting one of those sun blocking sleeping masks and sleeping the day away.  Honestly, I doubt that happens but the dream is to sleep the whole day away and wake up just in time to head to the spa.

I plan on waking up to a clean house. Literally have been slacking on that part of my job because I'M HUGE and I don't want to move.. hence the first plane of action. So hopefully he swoops in to take care of the kid and clean the house. Well if he only 'swabs' (mops) I'll be deliriously happy.

Ok, we are all adults here.. yea? Ok. I want him to make me coffee naked. Butt naked. Oh lordy I want this as much as I want the first and next item. I found it in a meme and can't shake it.. so yea. It may not happen but I'm really hoping it does hehehe.

Following the naughty theme here, with a twist.. I wanna take a shower. I want us to take a shower together.. just so he can wash my back. I mean it's one of the most glorious feelings ever! You can't ever really wash your own back, it's a bigger weakness than a back rub, for me anyway. Plus I found these new scrubs from Bath n Body with real sand... I mean I can not wait.

My last & final wish, or expectation, is to go to the spa and get a fabulous pedicure & I need to remove the acrylic off my nails. I have been dying to go by myself for months so I have built the experience up in my head. Truth is my brother let me go while was here a couple of weeks ago, almost 2 months now, but I was so worried about them two together that it was hard to relax. SO at least with his Dad, during nap time, he'll be fine (lol).

Aside from the unrealistic expectations we are going to driving to Arizona for a couple of days. A good friends of our's Dad has melanoma cancer and isn't doing so well. So we would like to go before .. well before we can't. It will be at least July before 'I' can go back so we are going to do a quick trip. I'm prepared to have a baby in Arizona & lord knows I'm excited about the Whataburger. As long as he's not born in Whataburger - this should be a cool trip.

As far as the remaining time he's here.. I have no idea. He wants me to have a baby while he's here but I doubt that happens. Well anyway I'd love to hear some unrealistic expectations you have had about a trip or a family member coming into town. I gotta go shave four months worth of hair away before tomorrow.. haha just kidding.

36 weeks

I can't believe we are at 36 weeks already!! I'm so anxious to have this baby!!
I was looking back through pictures today & I was just thinking to myself that I could / should  have done a couple of things a lot differently. That if I could go back to the 29th/30th week - oh the things I'd have changed.

First off. Being told that we had placenta previa and we weren't able to workout, or have sex, anything physical. They called it pelvic rest & I've been on pelvic rest up until 35 weeks. So I allowed that to stay very still. I should have been more active b/c now, towards the end of this pregnancy,  it could be harder to heal.

I should have made meals, earlier along, and froze them instead of eating out. I am an adult and I understand that this is temporary.. but I have created a picky eater (with Little man) through always eating out & that's a huge regret. I'm starting to force myself to fix dinners at the house & he is refusing to really eat anything. Gearing towards the end of this amazing journey - I gotta start putting back some of the 'normal' pieces back together for us. I know I can't put a lot of pressure on myself at this point but I'm going to try while the husband is home.

I wish I had forced myself to make a schedule. Cleaning, cooking, and in any other aspects. It's so easy to get lazy and not get anything accomplished. I'm a very organized - usually- but lately I'm really embarassed of the state of my house. I honestly don't care about what anyone thinks - because I have been asking for help and nobody has helped. With that, I feel I should have forced myself to push through and mop these floors,

I can't go back and change anything but if I ever get the honor to have another child - I want to remember these things. I want to remember that being idle really isn't ideal. I'm so thankful that the husband will be here at the end of this week .. and then next week one of my sisters arrives. I'm at the home stretch and I can't wait to share the joyous news of my 2nd son arriving into our lives. Please continue to keep us in your prayers..

Thank you!
