4 AM Blogging

My last weeks of pregnancy are usually sleep deprived. Some of it has to do with not being able to sleep comfortably- the other part has to do with strong nesting urges in the middle of the night. This morning I am up for a variety of reasons.

I treated myself to a pedicure last night and came home to Sam who was throwing up- a lot. He was really sick and it has me worried so that is probably why I am up right now. Russ said it came on out of nowhere and Sam spent most of the night on my chest whimpering and drifting in and out of sleep. He hasn't thrown up in a few hours and he is asleep in his crib so I hope he is feeling better by morning. The worry over your sick child is so strong it still surprises me.

This weekend we are going to finish up the few remaining things we want to do before #2 arrives. Russ is going to put the bassinette together and I am going to pack my bag for the hospital. I have been feeling some pretty strong contractions off and on and I want to be prepared. I don't want to fill these last weeks with too many tasks. I want to spend the time enjoying these last weeks of feeling the baby move and spending time with Sam. What a great pregnancy this has been and I am so anxious to meet our new family member.

35 weeks today... 5 weeks to go.
