31 weeks ramblings

Wow, where did the time go!? I'm in the single digits for weeks…9 weeks till my due date…but I really don't think I'll make it that long. I seem to be following right along with my mom's pregnancy…the morning sickness (felt sick but never got sick), my weight lost followed by a very slow gain (I'm currently at a 5 pound gain), etc. I was born at 37 weeks, my brother at 38...I think Peanut will be here sometime in the last half of October (between the 16th and 23rd most likely). That means I don't have much more time left!!! I'm ready but I'm not. I so badly want to see and hold Sean. I just can't wait for him to get here. But on the other hand, I don't want this pregnancy to be over. I LOVE being pregnant. I love the feeling of my son moving inside of me. I love how bonded I already feel to him. I love my body for what it's doing. It's truly a miracle. It's amazing what the female body can do…create a new being and completely nurture it…and it doesn't stop there. I'm also completely amazed about how the female body goes on to continue nurturing that new being(breastfeeding). Female's are just amazing!! Anyways, back to what I was talking about. I will really miss being pregnant. My granny said it best when she said she's never seen someone so excited about being pregnant. It's the best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm not afraid of giving birth…again the female body is amazing! Actually (I know this sounds strange) but I'm looking forward to Peanut's birth. I can't wait. So, I'm ready in that aspect but I swear there's a million things I still need to do before he gets here…atleast that's how it seems…could just be nesting.
