I came home today to find that our good friends from Fresno, the Hernandez' had ordered for us tons of books on just about everything related to pregnancy and parenthood. Each is pretty popular and well-rated by other mothers. I suspect these are useful for other expecting mothers as well:
- Eating well when you're expecting
- What to expect when you are expecting
- Nursing mother's companion
- What to expect the first year (must have!)
I think I'm set for the rest of the pregnancy if I can discipline myself to read these books in preparation of Boston. I'm sure when he arrives, natural motherly instincts will kick it, but it'll be nice to have references as well.
It's scary to think that our baby is on his way, and we have no set plans of care from a wheelchair nor even a crib yet! The type A in me is getting anxious for AJ to return home so we can work more on Boston's nursery and prepare for his arrival. But for now the exhausted me has taken over and is trying to take it one step at a time. My body has changed so much from pregnancy. I never knew I could be so bulgy and have to endure so much heart burn! 9 months worth! I'm sure many mothers out there can sympathize with me. I have to keep reminding myself that this will be worth it in the end. It's even worth it now to feel the little flutters and kicks of the baby. He already makes me feel so happy to know he's there. Kids, I hear they are just full of surprises. Let's just hope this little one doesn't surprise us with a visit before AJ returns. --feeling exhausted but excited :)
