31 More Days!

Give or take a few!
Today I am 35 weeks and 5 days.  I've started the whole not sleeping well, feeling huge, having a hard time getting in/out of the car phase.  I've also started the gagging thing again like during the first trimester.  I almost didn't get to finish brushing my teeth this morning.  It's also become very clear that I shouldn't fill a plate with the amount of food I'd like to eat (like a normal dinner portion), because I can't eat that much at once anymore.  I'm glad baby is growing and all, but pushing my stomach into my lungs... I could live without that part.  One good thing about this stage is that I've become addicted to hydration, I have to have something to drink all the time.  On the other hand, it's not so fun when you're out and about and don't have a drink in hand.  I thought I might die in line yesterday for Wendy's, I was so thirsty!  That's when the gagging really kicks in.  I've got to say gagging is such a weird preggo symptom, I don't think it's all that common either.

My BabyBump iPhone app says I have a honeydew melon sized baby.  Approximately 18 inches and 5.25 lb.  I've never seen an 18 in. honeydew, but I guess that sort of gives you an idea of what I've got rolling around in me.

I know this is a whiny post, but I do have to say I've felt really good for the majority of my pregnancy.  After the morning sickness subsided I didn't have many symptoms at all until the last week or so.  During the first phase I kept telling FB we'd be considering adoption from here on out, but I'm pretty sure if it's in God's plan I'll be in this same boat in a couple years.  And probably another time or two after that.  4 kids... I know crazy right?  Maybe I am, we'll just have to wait and see what the future holds.

In non-childbearing news... We went to my 10 year high school class reunion over the weekend.  FB was a good sport and let me show him off, even though he was pretty much done after dinner... I guess I'd be bored if I didn't know anyone too.  It was so interesting to see what happens in 10 years!  Most everyone is married with a career and some have kids.  I thought it was funny that FB and I were probably the most recently married and preggo too.  There were several couples who've been married 5 or 6 years and still no kids on the horizon.  I'm not saying that either way is the right way, it was just interesting to me.  We've got 2 that still live at home, which just strikes me as crazy.  I'm not talking about moved back home for a brief time while finishing school or looking for a new job or whatever.  I'm talking never. moved. out!!  My parents would have thrown me to the curb by now... I'm almost certain!  We also have a bunch of super smarties in our class, an attorney, several computer programmers, psychologist, entrepreneur, nurse, medical researcher, and of course teacher. :)  We also have an ice cream cone aficionado...  Does it make me a job snob that I think by now you should have moved on from your high school job??  I mean really, you want to scoop ice cream forever??  I bet you could guess the ice cream aficionado is one that still lives at home.  It's crazy how in 10 years things can completely change.... or nothing changes at all...  I'm interested to see where everyone is at 15 or 20 years!  Anyway, it was a fun evening and I'm glad we went.  I had waffled back and forth about whether to go at all.

Have a great week!  I'm getting ready for garage sale and baby shower this weekend, wish me luck!

I'm on the Internet!!

Well, I feel totally out of the loop!  I've been able to read some blogs on my phone, but haven't been able to figure out the mobile blogging.  They say it's possible, but I don't have the patience to learn how.  I came to work with Farmboy today, so I'm borrowing their internet. :)  Here's a little bit of what's been going on in our world.  We've been working on the nursery some more.
This is the rocker/recliner we decided to get.  It's really nice and cushy!  Plus it's big enough to hold FB's long body comfortably.

My brother and sister-in-law gave us all of these goodies.  2 swings, 2 car seats with 3 matching bases, stroller to match, a bumbo, and a bouncy sleeper.  It's really really nice having a nephew about a year older than Daisy! :)  Just old enough to be growing out of stuff.  

These are the curtains.  I couldn't get a good picture though.  I think I should have waited for night.  They were made for my house, when I lived by myself and could have pink curtains in the living room.  They've been in storage since I sold my house three years ago, so I'm really glad they're back in use!

We were also very blessed to receive two big boxes full of clothes!  A parent at my school gave them to us, she was so thoughtful and sweet.  She wouldn't let me pay her for any of it.  Now I've got a huge wardrobe of 0-3 month stuff that goes from hot to cold weather.  This is just one washer load of onesies and lightweight stuff to get her started.  I haven't washed any of the winter stuff yet.

Our baby shower is next weekend, so I'm looking forward to that!  Hopefully after that we'll be completely ready for Daisy.  If not, I'll be doing a little shopping to get us ready. :)  I've tried really hard not to buy stuff until then, but it's so hard.  Everything baby is so tempting to just pick up here and there.
This came in the mail yesterday!  Now Daisy will be ready to hit the road, or at least her stuff will be.  I'm not sure how soon this mama will be ready to hit the road w/ her, but we'll be ready when that day comes.  I found this on  One of my new favorite obsessions, well obsessions when I'm around internet connectivity!
For the most part this is what Holly and I have been up to this summer.  We both have decided it's entirely too hot (100's) to do any actual work around the house.  I think the weatherman said it hasn't been this hot for this long since 1954.  Guess that just adds to the future baby stories I get to tell my lil' girl.  ...When you were born it was the hottest summer on record...  I always loved when Mom would tell my baby story.  Anybody else get to hear their story, every single birthday?
