Last night I was finally able to get some sleep! :) I was even greedy and slept in several more hours than I should have considering all I have to do... Sunday is going to be a very long day.
According to my Ipod Baby Center App there are just 34 days left until Mia's due date. I was mostly excited reading that today. I am just so excited for her to be here! At the same time, I am also starting to get nervous about the how she is actually going to get here. I have been reading other Mommy blogs since very early on in my pregnancy and I find these women very inspiring! I have read many of their birth stories and frankly most have freaked me out more than calmed me. This is mostly due to the fact that none of them went as planned or were as simple as the books lay it out. I mostly just fear the not knowing (that is actually my greatest fear in life I think, fear of the unknown.) That said, I am mostly excited. Mia's birth while incredibly important will be just one of the amazing moments in her life and I am excited to experience all of those moments! There is a lifetime to look forward to and that is what I choose to concentrate on.

and I am awake. I wish I could be asleep but after hours of tossing and turning I gave up trying. This has happened the last 3 nights. I go to bed each night and the first hour or so is fine and then I get a pain in my chest that wakes me up and has me tossing and turning until day break. I called my OB the first night it happened because I thought something must be horribly wrong, but he thinks it's just heartburn. It really doesn't feel like heartburn and not getting any sleep is not really working for me and my busy schedule. I think I might start sleeping in the reclining chair we have in the living room and see if that helps. If not I will have to call the doctor back instead of waiting for my appointment Tuesday. :(
