The c section is scheduled for 4 weeks tomorrow. I have just 4 very busy weekends between now and then and 4 full weeks of work. People keep asking me if I'm prepared for Hayden's arrival. For the most part the answer is yes...the nursery is ready (just need to sort through the sizes of some hand-me-downs), and we have the necessities (heck there wasn't much to buy!). Plus I'm not too worried about it. After having one, you realize just how little you need in the very beginning as they just want to eat, sleep, poo and cry.
I have been trying to enjoy the last days of having just one child. Playing with Jillian whenever she wants. Enjoying an afternoon nap together on the recliner. Having two under two will be hard, but of course Jeramy is likely to be home for my entire maternity leave, which will make things much easier. I've been joking that it will be he who has the hardest time when I go back to work since he'll have two to take care of by himself. Or perhaps it will be his mom who gets it the worst when she watches Jillian, Hayden and their nearly 4 year old cousin.
Sorry for the sporadic posting as of late. My energy level has been quite low...lower than I think it was at this stage during my pregnancy with Jillian. I've reached the point I feel like I'm about to fall forward when standing up, and I find myself out of breath within a few minutes of doing just about anything. I'm looking forward to Easter this weekend, as it will be the first one where Jillian gets a basket of toys and goodies. I'm sure she'll be on a sugar-high Sunday.
I'll try to post pictures of those festivities and the nursery soon. Promise!
