Last Preggo Post?


So it is 6:00 a.m. and I'm 3 hours away from heading into the hospital for a couple of tests. My doc. suspects the beginnings of preeclampsia so for the past 24 hours I've been collecting my urine (one large container not a bunch of little samples but gross none the less). Two days ago when I found out there was a very good chance Stella would be coming ten days earlier than originally scheduled I started freaking 'cause I just didn't feel ready. Now my bags are packed, Madison and I had a great day together yesterday and Justin and I had our last date night last night for probably awhile. At this point I'm ready as I'll ever be. Sure the house could use another good vacuuming, there is probably another load or two of laundry to do and a pedicure to be had (never got to that yesterday) but nothing monumental. Definitely not anything that can't be handled by Justin while I'm in the hospital or anything that won't need to be done once I get home and on my feet again!
I really can't wait to meet my little girl, see who she looks like, smell her sweet baby breath. I know Madison and Justin can't wait either but at the same time I feel slightly guilty for making Madison share us from now on. I know the bond between sisters will be an amazing one that I've never experienced and she will be better for having a little sister in her life but the guilt is still there. I know it is not just me though 'cause I've heard the same thing from other moms going from 1 to 2 children. Well I guess we'll just have to see now if today is actually the big day!

In the meantime don't forget to check out my new giveaway for a Soda Club Fountain Jet.








Dropping Madison off at my parents' before going to my fav. restaurant Labrador Lounge. I can't beleive how swollen my legs are! No Madison is not happy and yes she is wearing a Cinderella costume!

Good luck!! I hope all goes well...I can't wait to meet little Stella too, and I'm glad you're feeling more ready now. :) And yeah...the guilt thing. Sigh. I'm doing pretty good with that, but I still do have days when I feel guilty for not having enough time for Tate, etc. But I know you can do it - you're an awesome mommy!

Congrats!!! I hopped over from Danielle's blog...I know what you mean about the guilt of going from 1 to 2 children. I dealt with the same thing, but I looked at it as though my first born got to do and experience things with just mommy and daddy and baby 2 has to share their firsts ( like 1st christmas, 1st trips)... It is amazing though how when you hold baby 2 that you can love them both just as equally. I was always afraid of how I would love a 2nd as much as the 1st, but it just comes. It's wonderful!!! Again, congrats!!!
