so ready...

I'm ready to...
wear my wedding ring again
paint my toenails without taking long breaks between each toe
have a long, can barely move afterwards workout
not pee my pants every time I laugh too hard, sneeze, or cough
look in the mirror and see the un-swollen me again
wrestle
wear normal clothes
sleep comfortably
play with my girls without being completely wasted afterwards
wear my converse again

but mostly...
I'm so ready to hold my sweet Maggie girl...  


come on body- I know your tired, funny-looking, and stretched to the max... just give me 11 more days.

Those last few weeks are definitely the hardest! I love the name Maggie by the way.

There isn't anything stranger than looking at yourself 9 months pregnant, naked, from the side view in the mirror. It looks like you should just fall forward. Gawk a little. It doesn't happen very often- haha
Love Ya!!

You can do it Jess! Wow . . . eleven days?! I'll definitely be thinking about you and praying for you and your precious family. You can do it!

I know what you mean, I'm so ready to be able to put my shoes on without having to maneuver strangely, and I'm ready to be able to walk up the stairs and not collapse from being so out of breath haha. Hang in there, you're almost done!
