how much is 17?

Sorry I haven't posted too much lately. Honestly, I'm a little self-absorbed and exhausted. In the mornings I feel like I have mono when I consider my energy level and in the evenings, I MUST sit down as soon as I can. I'm in the last few weeks of this pregnancy. Before I know it, our little fella will truly be a part of our family and I can't wait for that. But now, I'm waiting.

My counter says I have 17 days to go... only 17 days? and SEVENTEEN MORE DAYS??!! Discomfort, pain, lack of sleep, and exhaustion can make me feel it's an eternity away. Cleaning, nesting, preparing for our youngest son, and last minute appointments can make me feel like it's coming tomorrow.
I know that regardless of when I go into labor, I will forget the way these days seem so intense. Once I have him in my arms, in our home and a part of our family, I will know it's all worth it. But for now, with hormones raging, I will wait. Day after day after day after day...until the day is here.
Pray that my family can tolerate me until then! :)
