Everyone is sounding a lot more positive and ready this week :)
I'm 37ish weeks now and I have my birth bag packed finally. Still haven't installed the car seat, I keep hoping we'll have our new (to us) vehicle before the baby. Actually, my goal was to have it before I had a huge belly so I'm not squeezing into the back seat of a 2 door pickup to do up buckles...but alas! That is exactly what I've been doing
Our rental vehicle on the weekend for a road-trip/family gathering was a minivan, and as adverse as DH and I are to having a minivan, it was absolutely luxurious to have so much space to move around!
With all the driving and the hot weather though, my feet and ankles swelled up SO MUCH. Then I couldn't get comfortable overnight with them propped up, so they were still pretty bad today. I took the kids to a local swimming hole for a couple hours and just floated around in the cool water, bliss!
My cousin is due 2 months after me so it was really fun to see her. I felt a little bad because everyone was comparing our belly sizes - she's pretty much the same as me! It shocked everyone that it's my 4th and her 1st. But Every pregnancy is soooooo different! It was nice to just lounge around for the day though, munching on great food, visiting, talking baby stuffs.
My midwife is coming for a home visit this week which will be nice, and I still have to get that last u/s done.
