Ready for Cooper!

3 weeks from today is the day that Cooper is planned to make his grand appearance! It has been an amazing pregnancy with some of the usual ups and downs. However, I think I have finally hit rock bottom. I am super, super busy right now with school and clinical. 4 hours of sleep at night is not enough to get me through the day. I am constantly on my feet and running around the halls of the hospital. This week I have put in 26 1/2 hours at the hospital alone and I still have 24 hours this weekend. In between those days/hours I have put in class time and homework time. My nursing instructor this semester has us doing pointless, busy work that just takes up time.

On the upside of things...we get to hold our little boy in just a few weeks! I look forward to that moment where nothing else in the world matters except for our little family.

I now go to the doctor's twice a week. I have a non stress test done on Monday's and I meet with my physician later on in the week. So far, the non stress tests have been perfect. So it seems as though everything is going to be great!
