It is hard to believe that I have just 17 days (or less) left of my pregnancy, and it is mind-boggling to compare Finn and Erik at 8 weeks...
...to their size 32 weeks! Only their heads fit on the screen!
Though we will meet them so soon, waiting for these last few weeks to pass is challenging. I can only compare these last few weeks of pregnancy to how I felt running the last mile of a half-marathon; even though that last mile was such a short distance to go in comparison to what I had already ran, it was tough for me to maintain the race pace I needed to in order to meet my goal time because my body was so tired / sore. It took me a lot of concentration and motivation to will myself to keep running during that last mile years ago, and it is taking a lot of mental toughness to hang in there right now (though at least now it is perfectly reasonable to rest while I wait it out)!
And so...until then...lots of naps and popsicles!
