38 Weeks

Hard to believe this is all getting VERY close. It's all a bit surreal and I'm sure will feel even more so as the next week creeps along. 10 days until I'm due. No progress at my last appt, I should find out more at my next appt on Wednesday. I'm in no rush and fortunately still feeling really great. She is moving around a lot still and it's a little uncomfortable and she must be too, running out of room no doubt. This last week I worked only as a consultant when they needed me which was quite a change, but the week still managed to fly by. Got lots of things off the "to-do" list that we have been wanting to get done. I finally packed my bag and washed the baby clothes, which makes this all seem like she will be here soon.

People keep asking...are you ready?? I mean it's much more like ready or not! Yes you have all the supplies you think you will need but you can not really know what to expect until the time comes I don't think.

My hands are pretty swollen and that doesn't really go away anymore and one foot. My left foot lost it's ankle this weekend. It's just one big "kankle." But again can't complain much!

This weekend we attended the Boys and Girls Club Crab Feed. NOT the same when you can't eat a bunch of crab, but I did sample a little! Yummy!

There was lots of Rock Band Practice this weekend. Linny is pretty good on the drums, Mel is GREAT on the microphone and Hilder.....needs ALOT of practice! ;)

Baby room is getting more ready. We are waiting for the recliner - which will go in front of the window and should be here in the next week or so.

We have also decided what we are putting on the wall above the crib, so I'll send a photo when we have that up.

This Cuckco clock has yet to be hung, but we liked it. On the hour a cow comes out and "moo's", it's pretty funny to see the dog run around and try to figure out what is making that noise.

This chair in the corner was my moms when she was little, and we used it when we were little, so it's special that my dad and uncle Buddy refinished it to match the furniture in the baby room.

Sorry to all of you who are still so upset about us not telling the name... you'll know soon enough.

I'll keep you posted on the progress, have a great week!
