38.75 weeks nesting (or lack of) thoughts

My pregnant twin (no, not my actual twin, but my friend who had her due date three days before me) had her baby yesterday. Which kind of sent me into a slight "am I ready" panic. But I am so happy for her, and everything turned out wonderful, and her baby is precious. I think the most nesting-ish thing I did last week was make a 5 hour playlist consisting of mostly Sufjan and a track that plays ocean sounds for an hour. Hospital bag not too packed, cause mostly it's stuff I can't pack until right before. (right?) Our car seat was ordered weeks ago, and is still not here. All I know is, I still may not have him for another 2 weeks, but each day I get more uncomfortable and feel pains that mean this situation is going to go down. Sometime. Anytime.

But with all those natural anxieties, we are so excited to meet this little guy. And it's ok if he doesn't have hair at birth, but I just want this ranging, crazy heartburn to have meant something, you know?

O.K. now I'm freaking out. It had not yet hit me. But now I'm thinking, "My little girl is having a baby!!!" I'm so excited. It will be worth all the heartburn you've suffered, because Jon now gets to suffer the heartburn of concern for the next 20 years!

I think you'll be ready when the moment comes....and like you said, it will come, nothing can stop it now!

Yay for another boy. I cannot wait to meet him. And here is to hoping that the heartburn=lots of hair.
