100 Day Countdown!!!

Only 100 days to go until baby is expected to arrive!  And given that only 5 percent of babies are born on their actual due date, for all we know it could be sooner than that {though I hope not much sooner of course}!  Can I get a YIKES?!

Although this pregnancy has felt at times as if it's been passing by too slowly -- mostly due to my pregnant-after-a-loss nervousness and never-ending physical symptoms {yes, nausea, I'm talking to you!} -- the 100 day countdown makes me realize that it's passing by much too quickly!  We still have soooooooo much left to do to prepare for our little one's arrival.  There are classes yet to be taken, birth plans to be decided, registries to finalize, a small nursery to fix up from paint to furniture, books to read, exercises to be done, time to be spent with one another as a twosome before we officially grow our family into a party of 3...  I'm overwhelmed just thinking about all we want or need to do in the next 3 months!  But I know that time will keep passing, and there's nothing I can do about that, except to try and enjoy every minute of waiting for this baby that Shep and I both already love so much.

P.S. -- This isn't the first time this clock has marked an exciting countdown for us.  We used the same timer {with a different face plate} as we anticipated our wedding day, just about 5 years ago!  Here's a "throwback thursday" photo:

Let the countdown continue!


  1. Awesome countdown clock!! I'm sure the time will start really flying the closer you get....hopefully you can enjoy the ride and not stress out too much :) At least everything that needs to be done is FUN! And, take advantage of the last 3 months by letting people be extra nice and sweet to you....milk it for all it's worth, haha!

    Hey, I wanted to let you know that this morning we found out that we are having and BOY and a GIRL!! We're thrilled!! Everything looked great, both babies are measuring perfectly (little girl is right on, and little boy is actually a bit ahead!), anatomy scan went great...we are beyond blessed!!

    1. A boy and a girl?!?!?! That's so exciting, Allie -- CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! That is going to be so fun!!! And I'm so glad to hear that both babies are on target in terms of measurements and that the anatomy scans looked great; that must've been a big relief for you! Thank you so much for the update -- I was thinking of you and was hoping I'd hear from you with good news. :)

      I know yesterday was the due date of the baby you lost over the summer. I imagine it might have been difficult for you, but hope that this doubly positive news was able to help ease some of the sadness. Due dates can be hard -- I know mine was. For me though, it was also the start of a little bit of closure, in an odd way.

      Hugs to you and your 2 healthy growing babies!!! :)

  2. Congratulations for making it so far! Those last hundred days will fly by!! I am just so excited for you guys. By the way, that's a cute little ticker you have there. I've never seen one before. XO
