momma developments: mainly i'm just giant and tired. other than that i feel great & am so thankful. the swollen feet and ankles persist but aren't nearly as uncomfortable as they were during my week at camp. the top half of my belly button has poked out now and you can see it through my shirts if you're looking for it. sleep isn't so easy at this point, i'm interested to see how it goes as the next two weeks pass.
total weight gain: ?? pounds. i need to weigh myself again. oops!
i got confused again about how far along i am. i thought i had 40 full weeks in pregnancy and know that i have 14 days until her due date so this whole week I thought i was 38 weeks along and would be 39 weeks on monday (tomorrow) buuuut that's not really true because the baby's due date is on day 1 (or 0) of week 40. all that to say...i had the right number of days going on my countdown but still haven't gotten this week / month count down just yet. sad.
finishing out work. it is really bittersweet because i actually don't mind my job and really love the people that i work with - but i am so tired and feel so overwhelmed with things to do at the house that i basically want to be anywhere other than behind a desk for 40 hours a week.
juggling life - what else is new!?
you got to see your friends shannon and andy this weekend. you technically met at girl christmas but you were only 8 weeks old so you weren't much of a bump yet. now you're a squirmy worm and she got to visit you so much. she talked to you and told you how much she loves you. lucky for us she'll be back soon after you come for a wedding so it won't be another 6 months before you visit her again.
breakfast at doodles with friends.
momma's tired face after staying up way.too.late visiting!
we were so generously surprised when my mom, your nana, brought us all kinds of yummy groceries to the house. i had been meaning to go to the store since we've returned from camp and hadn't gotten around to it yet. she stocked our pantry and fridge - one of the best gifts ever! thanks momma!
last but not least we went to a dr.'s appt.- at the 37 week appointment we had a strep b test which wasn't nearly as awful as i thought it would be and we get the results back tomorrow. i'm praying that they're negative so i don't have to get those drugs when i go into labor but if so, so be it. we gotta make sure you're healthy afterall. they noticed that your heart rate was slower than they'd like it to be so they hooked us up to a monitor for about 30 minutes. you were asleep so i'm thinking that's the reason it was so low. when you woke up your heart beat went right back to normal and everything was a-ok. quit giving us those little scares itty bitty!
everyday i wake up and think - "today we could have a baby. holy crap!"
i have 5 days left of work. - 'nough said!
