6th day...

So today is my 6th day on maternity leave and last night was rough. Josh and I didn't sleep at all. I got in the bed, after trying to sleep and moving onto the couch watching TV and trying to get sleepy there and then back to the bed, at 2:30 this morning. I felt awful b/c Josh had to get up and be ready for work by 7 a.m. My mind was just flooded w/ thoughts and realizing that this is the last week I'll have Shelby all to myself kinda freaked me out. I guess I'm not ready to share her yet, other than with Josh that is. I like being the one that truly knows her and feels her but I am totally ready for her to be out and being able to move and function normally again! haha...please pray for us this week. My anxiety level is getting rather high and emotions as well. I've already cried this a.m. b/c there were these people in our front yard cutting our grass and edging and they woke me up, for what little sleep I had (they cut our grass like 10 days ago and just SHOWED UP again today and started w/o even callin Josh or ringing the door bell, etc...) that and then realizing that this is the LAST monday as "bekah the 40 week pregnant girl." haha.. it's so unreal to believe that this is our last week as just us and that this time next week we'll have a little baby girl in the house and in our arms. I cannot imagine the emotions and love that is going to pour from us in just a few days. Josh seems to be totally cool, calm and collected, FOR NOW, but me... TOTALLY NOT...haha.. We go tomorrow to the dr. so we'll know what the plan is and when to expect Shelby's grand entrance :)... I'll keep ya updated! Add me on facebook just in case I cannot update the blog from Josh's blackberry!
~need your prayers & God bless,

I've been checking in every now and then. Can't believe its already that time and you will have your baby girl soon!! My sister in law was due June 3rd, but she "luckily" had him May 15th, he was 6 1/2 pounds, boy would have been a whopper if he had gone 3 more weeks. :) I'm going to add you on facebook, so if you see a DeAnna and don't recognize my name (I don't give my last name out on my blog) you'll know who it is. Plus, you can see pics of my sweet, sweet nephew and get even more excited about holding your new little bundle. So, so sweet with tiny new little babies! I'll be praying for you!
