Yep... still pregnant. Baby girl is still hanging out in utero. I have my appointment a little later today but I expect everything to be the same as it was last week. The one big change that started last night is that I have been nesting like a maniac. I don't really remember doing this with Aubs. Maybe it's because I had more time then. Now I need to get done what I need to get done in the little bits of time I have at night, during nap and when she is at preschool two mornings a week. My house doesn't exactly sparkle at the moment but it is clean. Clean enough that if my in-laws had to stay her with Aubs, I wouldn't be embarrassed. All my laundry is done, I have 30 meals or meat for meals stocked up in the freezer, I figured out what the weird smell was in the pantry(bad potatoes)and there are no dirty dishes in the sink. Pretty good if I do say so myself.
I am still uncomfortable, obviously that will just continue to get worse before it gets better. This afternoon I was having a ton of braxton hicks. I think it was because I was moving so much today. This morning while Aubs was at school I vacuumed the entire house and beat out the rug in Aubs room. Her rug is really cute but it is a cotton jersey shag and it collects an insane amount of dust, sand and hairbands. I also finished and put away all the laundry. Then when I picked her up from school we headed over to Sam's Club so I could stock up hurricane style before the baby gets here. I guess all that activity got the baby riled up, hence all the braxton hicks. They weren't painful though, just really tight.
In super cute pregnancy news, every time someone asks Aubrey about her sister, she pats and kisses my belly. It took her awhile but maybe be is warming up to the idea.
I can't believe she's almost here. Hopefully I see you before she's here. I know its only been a week but I miss you.ReplyDelete
Wow, so soon. I admire your nesting behaviors. You are doing so well with being prepared.ReplyDelete
You're so close! I remember the nesting thing well from last fall. Sounds like Aubrey's getting excited about her baby sister!ReplyDelete
Yay! All that nesting must mean she is getting ready! I sometimes think I should get knocked up JUST so I'll nest... isn't it the freaking best!?ReplyDelete
I stocked up too at the grocery store yesterday! I just got home from my 39 week appointment and i'm not dialated at all. :( boo hiss.ReplyDelete
Any day now, lady. By lady, I mean you and the babe. I try not to be a creeper, but in the morning, one of the first internet-y things I do is check your blog and Twitter to see if you've gone into labor, yet. I am so excited for you (and more than a tad bit jealous). Enjoy these last few days with Aubs. Don't fret over the house. Nobody is going to judge you. I promise!ReplyDelete
