5 things I will (and will not) miss!

Today is (hopefully) my last full day being pregnant until next time. It really hasn't been all that bad! I have enjoyed most of it. Here is a list of 5 things that I will miss, and 5 things I will not miss about being pregnant (in no particular order):

5 Things I Will Not Miss

1. Pricking my finger four times (or more) a day.
2. Waking up multiple times a night to simply roll my belly to the other side.
3. Joe not cleaning the house because I am not cleaning the house.
4. 4 doctors appointments per week ... yes 4!
5. Getting worried when I don't get punched in the kidney often enough.

Why was it so easy to come up with 5 things?

5 Things I Will Miss

1. The excitement of getting things ready for him to come home
2. Not having to Iron any of my shirts because my overly large belly pulls out all of the wrinkles
3. Feeling his hiccups
4. Having a good excuse to not clean my house.
5. Joe giggling when the baby kicks him in the middle of the night.

It has been a good ride. I am excited to meet him tomorrow. I can't believe that it is here ... real ... and happening. I am banking on the fact that the motherly instincts will kick in. I hope he is a good baby. Is there a place you can buy a users manual? :) I feel so unprepared ... but I know that we will be just fine. This baby is LONG LONG awaited and he will be well loved!

Oh, Jen and Joe, what a happy time! You will do fine even though they DON'T come with an owners manual.
Love you...

YAY!!!!! I am so excited fro you! Keep us posted and bring him in when you can. As for the user manual, I think they sell them at Barnes and Noble - they have everything there! I am sure you will be a great mom. How could you not be, you're Jen!

You will do great...and probably won't even have the energy to read this or do any blogging for the rest of the month. G'bye free moments! Hello cute monkey!

Well, Jen, congrats on the belly- rolling in bed and Joe giggling because he gets kicked. [You make me laugh.] I am glad you enjoy those little precious things. The users' manual is written in your heart. Will be thinking of all THREE of you tomorrow. Love ya --- Oh . . . and Hello, cute monkey.
