A little teary eyed

Throughout my pregnancy I haven't been as emotional as I expected. Everyone always talks about crying over silly commercials, bouts of anger, stress, etc., but I haven't really experienced this too much...until now. (Francis may disagree though :P) Every time that I watch Alana's 3D ultrasound video or look at her pictures I get a little teary-eyed. It's so exciting to know that in a few short weeks she will be in our arms. I can already imagine myself staring at her for hours while she sleeps.

The one thing that hasn't hit me yet is the nesting phase. Same as always, our room looks like a tornado blew through it. Boxes stacked near the closet, clothes on the floor (and more in the hamper waiting to be washed) and an almost broken bed. It's a wonder we're able to walk around in our room right now. I'm literally rolling out of bed every morning cautious to not step on something. I think once I'm on maternity leave I will be cleaning like crazy.

Because of this, I'm realizing that I have a little more than a week of work and as much as I'm glad that I will be able to rest, I'm probably going to be extremely bored before the baby comes, wishing I was at work. I must say, I will miss my coworkers. But they got nothing to worry about...I'll be back soon enough :)
