38 week appointment yesterday, no internal.  Weight gain = 1lb., so we're still good.  No real way to update progress this week.  Next appointment April 3rd, pending Baby T doesn't make his arrival on my birthday!

38 Weeks!!!

Cruising right along, shouldn't be long now!  I'm still working...crazy, yes.  I worked a 12-hour shift yesterday.  I don't want to cut into my 12-weeks of FMLA time that I get with  Baby T once he's here, so I'm sucking it up!

Feet are now slightly swollen and sleeping is getting more difficult.  I really can't complain though, this pregnancy has been good to me!

Our countdown....

AND, the bump...

Will update after doctors appointment on Wednesday!

Feeling like a BRICK HOUSE

I think I got bigger overnight.  Not even kidding. 
Here is the view of my feet: 

AND, since it's is my barefoot and pregnant look at 37 weeks, 5 days.

Baby T Progress

37 week appointment complete.

I am 60% effaced, fingertip dilated.  Baby T is at -2 station, which means he's dropped!  I can definitely tell as my tailbone and hips are aching.

Next appointment is Wednesday March 28th...

I'm all packed up and ready to go...!

2 weeks, 4 days til D-day!

We also received our high chair, the is it all put together!

We've made it to 37 Weeks...I have to admit, this pregnancy has flown by.  AND, I'm not that huge and uncomfortable.  I am literally ALL baby belly.  No complaints of swelling.  Just starting to have a super sore tailbone and some lovely contractions here and there, nothing to get excited over.

Here are our nursery prints hung, the hubs even got some nesting in this weekend!  The crib will eventually go back on this wall, but for not we opted to leave the most room for our changing table and soon to be arriving rocking chair, hence how the prints aren't actually centered over the dresser.

We are so blessed to have had the support and outpouring of gifts from our family, friends, and co-workers.  John and I each have amazing co-workers who have had showers for each of us.  Words can't describe the appreciation we have for the help we've received.  We have everything we need for Baby T's arrival (and then some :-).   Baby T is a VERY lucky little man!

Will post bump pic. later...

Nursery & 36 Week Appointment!

Appointment went well.  We are measuring right on.  Weight gain thus far is 13lb.  I am about 50% thinned with NO softening or dilation.  Next appointment in a week!

I have FINALLY framed the prints we purchased to place above Baby T's crib.  Hoping John hangs them this weekend!  Bedding and curtains are due to arrive the weak before Baby T...way to close to call if we'll have them by the time he arrives :-)
