I went to the doctor yesterday. He told me not to worry about going into labor anytime soon. That's exactly what every 37 week pregnant woman wants to hear. They actually made my appointments for the next 2 weeks (which they've never done)...I guess that's just how sure they are that I'm not going to pop this kid out anytime soon. It's not like I really expected much else, but everything is ready for her - like the clothes washed, bags packed, everything bought and set up kinda ready...So now I wait!

She got a new ultrasound picture, but its not that great. It kinda looks like she's eating my insides, so I'm not going to post it... I don't want to scare anyone.

Not much else going on. I'm going to walk (more like waddle) every chance I get, so if anyone wants to volunteer to go on a waddle with me I will welcome you with open arms! Just a warning... I waddle very slow!

Nesting & Pictures

I've been nesting like a mad woman... which I guess is to be expected at 36 weeks pregnant. I still feel like I have a ton to do before she arrives. To date I've washed everything in the house, including all her clothes for the next year (just in case I forget how to do laundry once she's home), we've set up all her furniture, bassinet, travel system, changing area, my Mom made her crib bedding (which is totally adorable and I'll post pictures later), I've somewhat packed my bag for the hospital, I've shopped until we are poor (and not just for her, we are totally stocked up on tp, paper towels, soap and other everyday necessities - again just in case all stores go out of business after she arrives). And I'm sure there's more, but I can't think. Does anyone else feel like they get an adult case of ADHD when pregnant? If I could just focus on a single task at a time, I'd be a whole lot more productive!

Ok...well my phone rang and now I have no idea where I was going with this post (again with the ADHD), so I'll just move on to some pictures!

First, Baby Ellis at 34 weeks 6 days - asleep with her hand over her face - classic Ellis pose!

Second, me at 36 weeks - getting bigger by the day!

My last doctor's appointment was just over a week ago. She weighed in at 5.4 lbs and everything looks good. She is back in a head down position. And she has hair - 1cm to be exact! My next appointment is on Friday and I'll post more then. I'll be considered full term!! Weird!
