38 weeks seems so far away when you first learn you are pregnant. The weeks can seem to take so long. At times the road was rough, and at others it was easy going, or energizing. Now, as I get closer to week 40, time is seeming to fly by. There is more I need to get done. There are projects I want completed first. There are things to purchase, and there are things to sort through. It will be interesting to see what I get done before Baby Girl makes her appearance. LOL 🙂
I think it is a mix of the time of year and nesting, but I am really getting a lot accomplished here lately. See? I just may get my list done. 🙂 In the past two days we have made huge headway in school work, I worked on finishing the painting from my Tackle it Tuesday (including in the dining room, living room, entryway, hallway, 1 kid room, my room, my bathroom, the kitchen and the laundry room), I have most of the kids’ clothes changed out from cold to warm weather and a whole bunch of “stuff” gone through. The kids and I even changed around and completely cleaned the living room. That made me feel so much happier!
Things are going perfectly in week 38. My blood pressure and check up were spot on. The dr. is very happy with how well everything is going and how healthy Baby Girl and I are. Yes!
I am having really good contractions periodically. You know, the ones that get everything ready for real labor. Not to mention lots of pressure that definitely gets my attention. It scares the crap out of me to go into labor, but once things get started I feel almost empowered. It is amazing how God made our bodies to work.
This week’s stats are:
My weight is holding pretty well at 173 pounds. Surely I will lose about 20 pounds when she is born. Right? LOL
My belly is measuring right over 45 1/2 inches around at the belly button.
My uterus is measuring at 38 cm.
I am carrying so low that I don’t think I can drop any more! LOL
Hubby snapped a few pics so I could share them.
Oh, before I forget. I am looking for a diaper pail. One of those has been on my list for 3 previous babies, and I have yet to find one. I am currently using a locking lid tub, but that is not good enough. I need a real diaper pail to hold the cloth diapers until I wash them. I have checked at ChinaMart (aka Wal Mart), K Mart, Sears, Target, Burlington Coat Factory and such. Does anyone know where I can find one? Thanks all!
So, how are ya’ll doing? Stop lurking and answer the stinkin’ question!!! 🙂 Until later my friends.
Fully Relying on God,
In response to a few of the comments below: I have tried the rubbermaid stuff, and items like those. I am really unhappy with them, which is why I am on such a hunt for a diaper pail.
Carrie- I am going to have to check out the diaper champ and see what it is all about.
Sorry for missing last week’s update. We were having a fabulous time camping. 🙂
