Pregnancy is FUN!

This has been very hard to convince myself of. So many women tell me, "Oh, it's so great, isn't it?" I think they must have spent the entire nine months high or in a coma. I have about a week and a half left and I think I am only just getting used to being so exhausted all the time. And it's much worse now than it ever has been. For the first seven months I was a sleeping champion. I could get ten hours of sleep at night and still take a three hour nap. For the last two months I can't sleep no matter how empty my bladder is, no matter what position I'm in and no matter how tired I am. If I get two straight hours it's a miracle.

I guess I shouldn't complain; there really are some amazing things. This little man inside me moves around so much at times that I really think he's going to come out doing cartwheels. It's crazy to picture him in such a tight little space breathing fluid. It is fun to watch my husband talk to him and feel for him as he rolls around. It's fun to think about who he will be and how he will like us. We really can't wait to meet him. And I can't wait to breath again!

I'm so excited for you! Not only do you get the best prize in the world on the day you give birth, but you get an instant recovery from the 9-month flu. (Instant in the sense that you can breathe, the heartburn goes away, and the nausea disappears within a few hours of delivery.)

You're also sooo lucky to live close to your mom and my mom. They are the best. Your mom and dad are gonna forget about my kids completely.
