When I was little, we would often chant the phrase "first the worst, second the same, last the best of all the game!"
Lately I find myself chanting that phrase several times a week! My first trimester was pretty miserable, my second was even worse, but now that I am in the final weeks, I am finally feeling good! Well, pregnant good anyway!
After months of my doctors being very concerned and telling me over and over to prepare for an early birth, I have stabilized quite a bit. The fibroids have stopped growing, my pain is minimal, and I actually have energy and I can walk and move (things I really couldn't do a few months ago). I am officially 37 weeks, so only 3 more to go! And if she starts to come, they will just let her, so we are in the safe zone as far as the birth goes!
The funniest story of the day is that our neighborhood was having a garage sale the day of the shower. Abby went out early to check out a few of the sales, and she came home with something wrapped in a blanket. Her eyes were all lit up and she was so excited- she told me she found the perfect thing that I had wanted for a long, long time and she wanted to give it to me at the baby shower.
She was so cute- she could barely contain her joy and excitement! She kept saying "I just want to tell you what it is- you are going to love it so much"! Of course, I couldn't make her wait any longer than I had to, so we opened that one first....
