The Final Week

Last week I thought that I had created a new stage of grief – Persuasion to Acceptance. However, I’m starting to realize that I don’t need to use my head to talk myself into accepting my c-section fate. My body is doing a great job persuading me all on its own. I think there is something to be said about the miserable state your body enters into at the end of pregnancy. By Friday morning, I’m pretty sure that I won’t care how Avery is delivered as long as pregnancy is over (and, of course, we have a happy, healthy baby girl in our arms)! Aside from feeling pretty miserable, I think it’s totally unfair to make it through almost an entire pregnancy without a single stretch mark only to get them in your final week.

Anyway, except for feeling pretty uncomfortable, I’m really excited to begin this week knowing that we’ll end it with our little girl! Friday morning can’t get here fast enough! That said, I’m taking bets and/or guesses as to what kind of curve ball will be thrown at us this week. We’ve managed to fall into the ‘that only happens to less than 2% of pregnant women’ category so many times over the last 38 ½ weeks, I can only imagine what will happen in the next 4 days!

Any thoughts? What kind of ‘excitement’ should we expect? Will it be related to pregnancy? Traffic? Weather? The holidays? I’m sure it will be something!
