When I arrived at the office, the technician instructed me to take 4 laps around the office and drink my fluids before the session to wake Alana up. I immediately did what I was instructed but I couldn't finish it. I thought I just needed to drink half, but when I got back in the office she wanted me to drink more. I think I drank at least 30 oz. of fluid within 5 mins or less, but it worked like a charm. She was pretty happy with the strawberry lemonade as you can see below.
Whenever I see these pictures, my first thought is, "Wow, that little baby is in my belly....she's in there right now!" Then I think about how much of a little miracle baby she is. I look at her and am immediately amazed at what Francis and I have made together. What once was a passing thought is now less than 2 months away. The days grow closer to meeting her and even though I'm extremely scared of what's to come, whatever happens will be worth it.
I have a little less than 3 weeks of work left before I go on maternity leave and I'm a little overwhelmed with all the things that I need to do before she gets here: pack bags, wash her clothes, build the crib, write thank you cards, clean the house/room, prepare the nursery, finish work, stay active, prepare my desk for a 4 month leave...and the list could go on and on.
At the end of the day, my motivation are the sweet faces of our little girl that you see below. I love you Alana!!! You make my day so much happier!!!!
