Today is day number two at home, waiting for H to come. I really hope she doesn't decide to come today or tomorrow. Somehow that seems mean, not that I'm not dying to meet her and kiss her little nose BUT I also don't like the idea of a Friday the 13th baby OR a Valentine's baby. I think she's pretty snug in there though and I won't have to worry about it.
I've been thinking about all the things I'm selfishly looking forward to once H comes around. Here is a mini list:
-Wearing real pants again, even if they aren't the same size as I used to wear.
-Being able to bend over to see the back of the fridge or get clothes out of the dryer.
-No more swollen ankles or feet.
-Meeting my little girl for the first time and holding her little hand.
-An extra large Black Shaken Iced Tea from Starbucks, A HUGE White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks and a icy Mojito from I don't care where.
-Being able to focus eight entire weeks on my family.
-New spring clothes to fit my new mommy lifestyle.
-All the fun photos I'm gonna take of this child.
-Seeing her smile for the first time.

Top: Her crib of course with the super cute quilt mom made. Next: The super awesome mobile mom and I made last weekend. Next: H's fuzzy white lamp and wall color. I love the wall color. Well and the lamp. Next: Some books I purchased awhile ago for H. Also, the dog toy used to be mine when I was younger. Thank God mom keeps everything. Next: Hazel pillow mom made to match the quilt and H's Fox Jitter Pal, in which I am obsessed.
More room photos once the curtains get hung and pictures got on the walls. I don't have my rocking chair yet either but that's coming soon enough.

We're 14 days out now. We've got the room almost done. Our hospital bags almost packed. I've (or we really) have been dealing with another strange pregnancy thing. PUPP. Can't remember what that stands for but basically it's a pregnancy rash 1 in every 150 pregnant women get. My entire body pretty much is covered in what looks like 400 billion tiny bug bites which itch like you've never even heard of. Also, apparently not much can be done about it till H comes out. I won't lie, this has made this already frustrating part of pregnancy just that much more frustrating. I've been reduced to a crying mess more than once over the last few days. Today however, on the phone with the OB Nurse I begged for some sort of help. Some sort of relief. They FINALLY prescribed some sort of anti itch cream in which John, God love Him, is out at Walgreens getting right now. Other than the crying, the itching and the hugeness...things are pretty ok. I'm ready to meet my little girl. We're both ready I think.
Also, the weather is really nice the last few days. Temps in the 60's but I guess a storm is coming. Rain I can deal with though. I just hope we don't get anymore snow.
