Things certainly do seem to be moving that way, and have been for the past several days--so I'm hopeful!! This is probably the oddest season of life I've ever experienced, to be waiting for baby. Waiting for pain. Wanting pain, because it signals the imminent arrival of our son! I don't think I've ever desired pain before, so that's been something new :-).
My amazing mama arrived here in town this past Wednesday, which has been so wonderful!! I've been so much more relaxed (compared to the hot mess I was before--still wouldn't categorize myself as "relaxed and zen" right now, lol). There's just nothing like the comfort of your mama! We've enjoyed our time of waiting by shopping, talking, and doing our part to encourage baby Carr to come on out (e.g., walking every day, eating pineapple, trying out the famous "Prego Pizza" in Folsom, etc.). The rational side of my brain realizes that this baby will come when he wants to, but it at least makes me feel better to try out some home remedies ;-).
So, that's all for now - thought I'd post a couple pics from my first Mother's Day, even though technically I'm not a mother just yet. But given the size of this belly, I think I earned the right to celebrate a couple weeks early ;-). And hopefully the next time I post, our son will be here!!!
