This Time Last Year......
I WAS HUGE. No ifs, ands or butts about it- its the plain and simple truth- I was a whale.
I was surprisngly cool, calm and collected about the birth.
I was renting movies up the wazoo to kill time till the big day.
I was getting up 700 times a night to pee.
I was eating enough to feed 4 horses and 9 elephants.
I was frequenting Maggie Moos once (sometimes twice) a day.
I was washing Maeves clothes and trying to decide on the hospital outfit to take her home in.
I was waddling around with the most annoying, dull, aching pain in my pelvis... nice huh?
I was waking Ryan up at 1 in the morning (my tummy growling) begging for McDonalds because "I only ate a pan of brownies, ice cream and 7 bowls of cereal, a bag of chips and 3 helpings of lasagna for dinner..."
I was going to the doc. twice a week.
I was debating between the names Maeve, Miley, Elisabeth and Annabelle
I still liked my dogs.
I slept alone in our bed with this GIANT "S" shaped pregnancy pillow wrapped all around me. (sorry hubs- I know that pillow was massive...)
I was having nosebleeds and bleeding gums like no other.
I was soaking up every moment- every SECOND of the pregnancy- I knew that soon I wouldn't have baby bugs flipping in my tummy-and although it was exciting to think about holding her in my arms, I was terribly sad that the pregnancy was coming to an end.
This time last year, I didn't have a baby- TOO crazy- because as soon as Maeve was born, it was as if she had been here forever- life without Maeve was nothing- and life with Maeve is everything. How blessed we are to have her- she has brought more joy, happiness, smiles and laughter than I thought was possible. She's my heart, my soul, and I am SO thankful, SO grateful that God gave her to us. I LOVE YOU MAE MAE!!!!!!!!!!
