Good Things Are Happening

Lately things have been going really well. Jonathan is enjoying his new job, the pregnancy is going well, and our little girl is due in less than 30 days!! I had a prenatal today and everything is perfect - my midwife said I'm a textbook case right now. The baby has started to drop, she's in a great position, and her heart tones were good. Next week I get my belly painted at my prenatal. I'm really excited for that! Our friends Chris and Rachel had their second, a boy, on the 10th of April and I've been enjoying cuddling him. I can't wait until my little one is here, but it's fun to get some of my newborn cravings satisfied. I thought I would be bored out of my wits by now and ready to head back to work, but I am loving the down time. I'm actually quite busy, busier than I thought I would be, but it stops me from obsessing about when the baby will arrive. She will get here when she gets here and I'm pretty sure she is going to be late. Life

4 Days Left

I only have four work days left! It's hard to believe my time at the bookstore is almost up. I've loved my time there and I don't think I will ever have another opportunity to work with such fabulous people. Unless I go back after a few months off. Right now I'm confident that is not going to happen, but I am also a fickle, fickle person. (Just ask my husband about gliders in the nursery). Next Sunday I will officially be a stay at home mom. For now that means laying around, wearing very little clothing since nothing fits anymore, and eating tons of cupcakes because I can't have chocolate and cupcakes have been the next best thing. And continuing my walking and exercise routines because I want this baby to come before June. I have a feeling these last few weeks are going to be hard on the bank account. I went to Fred Meyer today to buy a couple things. Somehow my purchases went from four things to nearly $100.00. I headed for the pharmacy aisle to buy su

Almost 34 weeks

On Friday I will hit 34 weeks and I cannot wait. Time has really started to drag lately and I haven't even quit working yet! April 17th is my last day of work and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my time after that. I think I will enjoy being lazy for a little while. And I'm going to love staying in sweats all day since my pants aren't fitting so well anymore. When I was first pregnant I couldn't quite grasp the concept that I would be hugely pregnant at some point. I woke up on day 1 of week 33 and realized my days of being huge had begun. Right now I'm at the point where I don't know how much bigger I can get, and I don't know how my baby will fit inside of me if she gets much bigger. Now I know why everyone hopes for an early delivery date. I'm tired and grumpy and I have a constant headache. I cannot wait to put on non-maternity clothes. As soon as I can get back into pre-pregnancy jeans I am boxing up the maternity clothes and
