Katie, sounds like you are doing well! I'm with the others, I think I'd go a bit crazy. But you are right, we do what is best for our babes! At least you should be very well rested!!
Jac, just reading your post made me want to lay down for a nap!!! Your party sounds like it was a hit, the menu sounds amazing and I am not sure I could even have gotten the meal done let alone the rest of your productive activities!! I hope that baby boy does flip for you. If he's moved up, at least it isn't like he's got his little bum jammed in your pubic bone so there's a good chance he can still flip...
Sheryl, more snow?? Where is spring this year, seriously?? We had cool weather all weekend, but just a small dusting of snow yesterday thankfully. Today it is cool, but very sunny and the rest of the week looks better. Sorry to hear that your shower was postponed. I hope the snow melts quickly and that spring makes a proper arrival soon!
TJ, I don't really have any suggestions...hmmm....Have you seen those little key chains that are like the digital picture frames? They are kind of neat, and around $15 or so. Not sure if that is too similar to the picture frame you got them for Christmas or not....
AFM, today is my first official day of mat leave! YAY! I kept DS home from his dayhome and we went to the zoo. It was a really nice time, until we were leaving and he decided to run away from me!! He thought it was hilarious, kept looking back to make sure I was following and I could see the grin on his face. I couldn't catch him, and I couldn't run after him so I thought it was less funny. I had to have the stranger talk once he did finally get sick of the game....not sure how I feel about that. Oh well, I won't let that take away from the great time we had otherwise.
The weekend was nice. DH's little party was pretty fun on Saturday and it was minimal work, really. DH did way more of the house cleaning than he normally would, and I made the appies super, super easy/lazy. It was nice to catch up with DH's old classmates. A few we hadn't seen in 5 or 6 years! And DS did great at my sister's place. He was out cold by 8:30pm and didn't wake up even to pee until the next morning at 7! That's better than he does at home! Sunday we just had brunch at my sister's, picked up some craft stuff for DS at Michael's (I read about an idea of making "big brother" or "big sister" announcements for the new big bro/sis to hand out to their friends, so we picked up glitter glue, paper, etc.) and were super lazy otherwise.
I am 39 wks on Wednesday, but feel like baby's arrival is not imminent. I feel like I've got some time to go yet. I've had BHs for a long time, and they have been a bit stronger lately but nothing approaching "real" contractions. I haven't lost any mucus plug or anything either. That's ok, I know that they are easier to take care of while you are pregnant than after they arrive, but I am starting to be anxious for labor to HAPPEN ALREADY because I want to meet this babe and know he/she is o.k. I have a massage booked for tomorrow afternoon, so any time after that will be good! lol.
