Week 38 and 1/2. AKA When My Feet Grew 3 Sizes

We are almost there.

We are at least 1cm dilated.

We are waiting anxiously!

But we are also super patient.

I know that sounds like an oxymoron but the truth is, I can’t wait to meet her though knowing that her life will change ours, I’m willing to wait. Even beyond these terribly swollen feet, enormous weight gain and extreme exhaustion.

Please pretend you don’t see the terrible nail polish and gross cuticles. I’m getting a pedicure next week.

I got a good breakfast today. I got bacon on my way home from dropping hubby off for work. I figured we only have however long she wants to take so I’m going to finally get some bacon in me. I’ve missed it so very very much. Plus Starbucks has the Casi Cielo coffee right now and it’s my favorite. You should go get some right now.

So my body is so swollen it makes me wonder how we’re going to get thru this natural birth thing. Most of the squats and positions cut off circulation and make me numb very easily. I know I can do this, I know it’s possible. I just am a little more anxious about the amount of intense labor that I’m going to be feeling and wether my body can handle it. Though this is what women have been doing forever right? Yikes.

In other news I only have three full days of work left and I actually have zero motivation to go to any of them. I’ve had the past three days off and it’s been marvelous. I’ve been able to get stuff done, and I’ve been able to just chillax and watch TV, clean, organize, and re-organize over and over again. I actually feel ready for her to come where a few weeks ago I was flipping out that we weren’t ready.

Next week, when I actually start my leave I’m going to do this little project…Lord willing. She recently re-did the frozen meal plan and posted it here. I’m going to try both I think. ┬áIt seems like it could be a lot of work but if I pace myself I’m sure I can get it done. Plus Naph’s mom is coming on the 6th, our little girl’s due date, and my mommy & daddy are coming on the 13th so they can help finish it up. I’m stoked about it. Having over 10-12 meals already ready to go and simply cook makes me smile a bit. Takes a lot stress off.

I recently finished up some pictures of my trip to Maine in October. For some reason I had them all color corrected but not actually finalized and now that I’ve had three days off I was able to work on it. So wonderful.

I ALSO have a picture of the gorgeous new baby bag I just got off Ebay. I’m so excited. I love it. So many pockets, waterproof, pink and gray, birds…love. Plus the front pocket comes off so I can throw it in a different bag just grab it for a quick walk out instead of taking the whole bag. Though Hubby’s first reaction was that he wished I had purchased something more manly. OH well.

I made a pear cobbler the other day but didn’t get any pics of it in it’s final stage. It was too delicious.

The ingredients.

All that sugar. Lots and lots of sugar.

Anywho. That is the update as of late. 39 weeks hits on Tuesday and I’ll let you know if there is still a kiddo in here. :-)
