This weekend was a good and prodeuctive weekend! We got a lot done in preparation for little Eli to come.
And let it be stated, that now that I'm almost 39 weeks (Wednesday) I'm ok with Eli coming at any moment.
In the past I heard women talk about the uncomfortable feeling at the end of pregnancy, but of course I never really understood it...... until now.
I told Luke we needed to buy new furniture because ours is completely uncomfortable, but he thinks it could just be me. Not necessarily the furniture.
Also, I feel like my face is getting bigger by the minute. Of course I try not to worry about the weight aspect of pregnancy but my face is outta control.
Anyways, Friday my baby sister and mom came to my town to take care of some things, so Luke and I met up with them for lunch. My mom was hoping I would just go into labor that day since they were already here. It didn't happen.
Here we are after a hearty lunch of chips and queso. Yes I complain about weight gain in my face and then eat chips and queso. Whatever.
Friday night Luke and I ate with some friends and then hung out for a bit afterwards. Of course we talked many times about how this could be our late couples date without a baby in tow! Craziness.
Saturday morning we had a house cleaner come to clean the house for us. This is not something we normally have, and most definitely will not have the money for it after the baby comes, however many moons ago, I asked Luke if we could PLEASE set aside money for it for the month of March. I've decided to be a whiny baby this month and part of being a whiny baby means I do not want to clean. So my sweet husband set aside money and Saturday morning was the glorious day that our house was deep cleaned and I didn't lift a finger. Thank you Lord.
The feeling of coming home to a sweet smelling, freshly cleaned home is priceless!
Luke and I spent the day running errands. We returned duplicate items that we got at showers and picked up last minute items, like our swing, video monitor and pack and play. I'm so excited to get everything set up and ready for Eli!
I was so exhausted Saturday night after running around all day. I came home and put my pj's on around 6:00 and I was ok with that!
Sunday after church we ran a few more errands for baby/nursery items and then came home and started putting stuff together. Well Luke put stuff together, I just organized diapers. I feel like we have a million diapers (so thankful) and I'm curious to see how fast we go through them. I've heard you go through them much faster then you think you will!
I've been having lots of period-like cramps still. But thats it, no contractions or anything (however I have had lots of people tell me they only contractions they had were similar to period cramps) I go to the Dr. Monday morning, I am anxious to find out if I have progressed at all.
As we near the end of this pregnancy I have lots of emotions going on. I am going to do my best to put them in writing as I love going back through my blog/journal reading how I felt at the time. Hopefully I will do that sometime this week.
Now it's times for me to go to bed and have some of those crazy pregnancy dreams. Last night I had a dream that I was in labor at the hospital and WE FORGOT THE CAMERA. I was freaking out in my dream. It reminded me of the crazy pre-wedding dreams I had before we got married. Those were scary.
