The countdown begins

It is now only 7 days until Wyatt turns 1. How can this be possible? Where has the year gone? It seems like only yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital.
Here is a post from a year ago. Reading this I can remember the excitement, fear, nervousness, and everything else I was going through. I still can't believe it's already been a year!
"Oh, I am so excited, nervous, anxious, impatient, emotional, so on and so on. I can't take it anymore! I just want to hold this little boy in my arms! But, I actually think a big part of me will miss having him all to myself! My emotions are all over the place, I am such a mess! But, I have to say for being 38 weeks and 4 days, I actually physically feel pretty good. I am still working, and even though I have a bit of a cold (runny nose, sore throat) I don't feel nearly as bad as I have heard from others. I mean, yeah, I am definitely done with being pregnant, but as far as a few aches and pains here and there I am feeling pretty good. I think I got my butt kicked by morning sickness early on, so I'm lucky to have it a little easier now. I am sleeping pretty well, only wake up a few times for the potty. And my right hip is killing me, so I do a lot of tossing and turning, but overall I don't feel sleep deprived. Anyways, I guess check with me if this baby is past due... I might feel a bit different. But, since my Dr. EDD is April 19, but by the LMP it is April 14- I really hope this little guy will be coming this weekend!!! That would be so PERFECT! Ok, Wyatt, do you hear that? You better listen up and arrive right on time.
That way I can try to not even think about the possibility of scheduling a c-section. We are doing a growth u/s tommorow and if they are saying he is 9lbs the dr. said she'd give me the option of scheduling a c-section. Which, I really don't want, but then maybe I do.. I can't decide. And I think that is why I am just going to say no. I might as well wait and give this baby a chance to enter the world his own way... but it is mighty tempting to go ahead and have his birth scheduled.. especially if he is THAT big and will end up with a c-section anyways. Ugh, I am so torn. I just can't wait for the u/s tomorrow to find out what is happening!"
