I am now less than 3 weeks away from meeting my little guy. To get ready means I have had to push it a bit in the evenings and on weekends, and I am certainly feeling the effects of not taking it easier. Or maybe I'd just feel this way by this point, no matter what. My parents and sister have been super helpful - running errands or helping me clean out cupboards, etc. and I feel almost as ready as I can be. I'm in the position where this could happen on my due date, or anytime before it, and for the last couple of weeks, that has had me on edge in a way that I didn't recognize until I woke up this morning and realized it is Nov 1st, and I can say that I am for sure having my baby this month. And for some reason, this has settled me down a bit. Yes, it could still be a surprise timing, but I'm much more at ease that with every passing day, this bebe becomes stronger and more able and equipped to tackle being born! Soon my people, soon.
