I’m still here plugging away at my little list of things I’d like to get accomplished before the baby arrives. Between the nice weather outside and the doctor giving me the two-week notice before they induce (but still not a specific date yet), my blog has gotten shoved into last place on the list. Well, actually showering is in last place…no. kidding.
I’m feeling pretty good. Although, I’m a bit sore (and huge) and not sleeping all that well because of the amount of effort it takes to swing this belly from one side to the other. Dan said to me the other night when I was moaning and groaning about having to get up for the bathroom again, that I’ll probably feel like I’m getting more sleep once the baby is born! I figure this is all preparation for the sleep deprivation that lies ahead.
I’ve been at my sewing machine a lot in my absence from here. The curtains are finished thanks to some tag-team sewing with my mom on Monday. And I’ve begun the bumper project that I’ve been putting off. Things are really beginning to take shape in the baby room.
I’ll be back in a day or two–hopefully with pictures of a nicely finished bumper. In the meantime, congratulations to my blogging pregnancy partner….welcome Lucie, you cutie!
Talk to you soon, friends. xo.

ooooh, that last month is soooo hard. Sleeping was so hard. I remember the constant turning, winging my belly from one side to the other, peeing all the time. It was nice afterwards though, I felt like I could not my pee for days or something, it was a nice change. Hang in there.
I agree with Dan that you’ll feel like you’re getting more sleep after – at least that’s what happened to me with my second. Of course that sleep will be in tiny bits. I hope these final weeks are sweet and calm.
I’ve been thinking about you. The last few weeks of pregnancy are hard, but having a newborn is hard, too. I hope you get some rest soon. Hopefully you will be so exhausted one night you will sleep all the night through. (I did that many, many times without having to roll over or go to the bathroom.
The end of pregnancy is really hard on the body, I remember! Hang in there.
two weeks only? you are almost there!
I remember longing to be able to sleep on my stomach for just a night. My baby is now 3 months but I still can’t because of my distended breastfeeding boobs!My guess is that you do get more sleep collectively and definately way more comfortable throughout the day without having to carry your wee one in/on you everywhere you go.GOOD LUCK!! Not long before you meet this littleone…very exciting! xox
Just think that soon you’ll be able to sleep on your belly again! Good luck these last days!!
Awwww, thanks Molly. Can’t wait till your sweet one is here too. I’m enjoying it so much more this time. She is sweet as pie.
Ah the lack of showers. Yes, low down on the totem pole. Take care.
final countdown! 🙂
final countdown! 🙂
Thinking of you, my little one is 2 weeks old now, and that all seems like a distant memory. I’m getting loads more sleep now than the last couple of weeks of pregnancy, and sleeping on my tummy is bliss. Hang on in there, it’s worth it in the end.
I am getting excited. I keep checking in to see whats going on. I can’t wait to know what it is!! Hang in there- you are almost there!
Oh, oh, I remember this part so well… Thinking of you and sending you lots of calm, strong thoughts.
And eager to get a peek at this new little person, too!
I’m thinking of you..looking forward to meeting the new little!! xo.
