Only a little less than 10 weeks left in the Levi count down. I am getting more and more excited! I have to be honest, though, and say that I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with my list of things I want to get done before he makes his grand arrival. Zack has been so helpful in helping me "nest." The thing about the nesting stage is that I get all these ideas and things that NEED to be done but I can't do it all. I can't climb to clean, I can't lift heavy things or move the furniture where I want it. So I end up giving Zack a major to-do list. Thankfully he understands and loves me enough to carry out my wishes. I am so blessed with such a wonderful hubby and father to my children. I just can't wait to meet little Levi and I want to be ready for him. For the most part I am feeling very good but there have been some moments where I feel every bit as pregnant as I am. I tend to over do it and then regret it. But, other than that I feel great. Zack has been sure to force me to sit down and rest when he thinks I am doing too much. He has even ordered me to nap before. Surprisingly, except for the occasional trip to the bathroom or to soothe Moriah, I have been sleeping very well. I think that totally helps in the feeling good department. I have noticed on the nights where I don't get enough sleep, I have a pretty rough next day, as far as feeling good. I have my next appointment at the birthing center on Wednesday and then I will go to an appointment every two weeks. Wow, crazy to think that I am that close to giving birth that they want to see me so often!
