i was thinking today about some recent purchases we have made that will DEFIN-A-TELY still be around when the baby comes. i have featured them here. it's weird to think about (i guess NOT everything will change around the house, eh? it's probably not REALLY that weird, but i think it might have taken this to make me realize how soon this thing is coming out of me. yep. soon.) UNLESS, i guess, i do over 64 loads of laundry (DOUBTFUL!!!), wash my hair 18 thousand times, my husband uses an extraordinary amount of hair gel... like A LOT (now that would be weird), or i force feed us pancakes for every meal b/w now and then.
i am including my 35 week belly picture. i love being pregnant but i am missing feeling 'normal." let's just say it is a good thing i didn't pull the 'pregnancy card' with karl early on, because let me tell you, i actually need it sometimes now! for the record, he has been great about running in stores/running errands (honestly, at this point, it is faster without me!), getting me water (or gatorade or ice to help reduce swelling!), and oh-so-much-more.
i have been working on my thank you cards for recent gifts we have received. i promise yours is either written and in the mail or will be written soon. (and now that i have typed that statement, it shall happen!) my arm is falling off. people's generosity = still overwhelming. it is hard to be personal on all of them but dangit i am trying!!!
i don't go back to the doctor until the 10th (yikes! that feels far!) because they said there is no reason for me to come before then. that is my SWAB (ew. swab is a weird word.) for GSB and my first 'internal' (pelvic exam) as they say in OB language. fun, huh? oh, yea, lots of fun starting!! i promise to try and be honest with you all about it. (without grossing you out by sharing too many of the details!)
