Monday, David and I got to spend some time together since he isn't on service this week or next in anticipation of baby coming. We also got to take Kate to school together.
That day, I had an OB appointment, so I wasn't concerned; but we did pack the car JUST in case we had to stay. Um, yeah...NO CHANGE! All that contracting and no change. She said that she doesn't doubt I was having contractions, it was just not enough to do anything. So, we now have a plan and will have a baby at some point within the next week - either at his own choosing or eviction. I'd prefer his own choosing, but we shall see. I laid low for the rest of the day but did make a yummy new supper that has potential for lots of different options.
Yesterday, it was Kate's school picture day. I think she looks cute myself!
Due Date: September 25, 2014
How Far Along: 40 weeks
Gender: It's a BOY!
Exercise: Still exercising almost daily...though I still haven't gone to the gym, I'm just not feeling the machines! I took a break Tuesday after my OB appointment since I had such a difficult night the night before. However, I have been LOVING the morning walks and still doing my "video" after. David even went with me yesterday. :-)
Cravings: Not much to speak of.
What I love: Feeling and watching the baby move! Still SO going to miss that. Maternity leave!!! Time with David this week. Knowing that in less than a week we'll have baby with us (but that is also a little bittersweet).
What I miss: turning over in bed easily, being able to sleep well - I know that I won't necessarily sleep more with baby but hopefully that will be because I'm feeding him rather than an inability on MY part to sleep, being able to pick things up off the floor (I seriously make a sound whenever I pick something up off the floor!)
What I'm looking forward to: meeting baby!!!! Finishing the art project I have for baby's room - started painting the letters and will try to get toward finishing it later today or tomorrow.
What I'm thankful for: Getting to spend time with David and Kate, friends who are willing to help if needed, a job that allows for maternity leave, God's provision for us
