Countdown to Caderyn's Birthday

I'm still in shock that my little boy is going to be one-year-old this weekend. I've spent most of the week looking through pictures from when he was brand new, looking at ultra-sounds and reading the journal I've been keeping for Caderyn since we found out we were pregnant. 

I thought it would be kind of fun to do a countdown on my blog of what I was doing on the last couple days before Caderyn was born. So this day, March 10, just so happened to be a Tuesday last year. Here's a blog post I did:

Daylight Savings Can Kiss My Butt

It's only 9:30 a.m. on a Tuesday morning and I am about ready to pass out on my desk.
It could be the cold I have that's clogging up nearly every opening on my face EXCEPT for my nose or the fact that I'm just not sleeping very well in these last few days/weeks of pregnancy. But, I will make a point to say that I truly think I am dragging because I lost an hour of sleep due to the stupid Daylight Savings "jump" forward. Why throw half the country off their sleep schedule when you could just leave it the way it is!
I like being on the same time zone as my parents who are now an hour behind me. They forget and I forget and I find myself calling them at 7am on a Saturday morning when I think its really 8am there.

I'm having so much trouble with this time change right now I am seriously thinking about going home to bed! Mmmm wouldn't that be delicious!

But what else was I doing:
On this day last year I had a doctor's appointment. I was 2 centimeters dilated and 75% effaced. I was having some little sporadic contractions that weren't on any kind of a schedule. I was exhausted and would come home from work every day and take a nap and then I would wake up and play spider solitaire (love that game) before making something for dinner. The only pants that fit me were my black maternity sweatpants and I wore them to work! The only shoes that fit me were my snowboots and I wore those to work too. I felt so heavy and sluggish. Caderyn hadn't been moving as much but when he moved I ended up moving with him. 
I was craving beef constantly and still loving my cupcakes. 
We were madly preparing for baby and making sure we had everything in order. 

I have a picture of me at 38 weeks pregnant. I will NOT put it up online because I'm such a huge blob. I gained a lot of weight during this pregnancy and I really don't think I will eat like I did in my first pregnancy again. I ate fairly healthy, but I seriously ate enough for two or three people. I'm paying for it now as I'm finding out how hard it is to get the baby weight off. 
I am still just in awe of the fact that my little bub will be one. I might cry.

Another post to come tomorrow.
