After the whirlwind of emotions that I awoke to on the day of Finn’s arrival, I pulled it together because there was one final detail that I had to take care of before I headed to the hospital… I needed a manicure and pedicure! 

My nails hadn’t been done in weeks and weeks (as any mom of toddlers knows, getting your nails done regularly is almost impossible), and I was NOT going to let Baby McDermott meet me for the first time with anything but flawless nails.

So with my husband and gusband in tow, we set out to find a nail salon… which turned out to be a lot tougher than we expected!

After the mani/pedi (which was super quick and turned out looking amazing) it was time to head back to the hotel, and that was when it hit me that in a couple hours, I’d be having a C-section. Actually having the surgery is the part of my pregnancy I had dreaded since day 1. I was anxious to get it over with, and was definitely feeling the stress of what was about to happen:

Next up was saying bye to the kids before we left for the hospital, which (as you can imagine) was quite emotional for this Mama.  In the next episode of documenTORI, you’ll see me say my goodbyes to my babes for the last time as a pregger.  Stay tuned!!

What was the very last thing you did before your little one’s arrival?
