we took her to a water park yesterday. She had a blast and I relaxed in the water while do chased her around. She's part mermaid I swear.
How's everyone doing? I can't believe we are so close. I'm in single digits! 9 days max.
i second the intense movements. it's started to become actually a bit painful!
single digits, wow!! i can't believe how close we all are getting now!! :O

i'm in waiting mode too now. i'm also sometimes ending up doing nothing now - a conscious effort - we still have stuff on our to do list, but some days i just don't feel up for anything and am thinking right now, how about i just don't do anything on those days.. and see what that feels like? it's actually not bad :D oh and yes, i did some gardening with DF too over the weekend and of course my hips and back started complaining right away!

That being said, I send lots of pixie dust for long, quality sleep, ease of physically moving around, and dry pantyliners!
This week is pretty calm in terms of scheduling, but we're just trying to move forward on the home search without getting frustrated. The houses we looked at this weekend were all busts. The one we had the highest hopes on had a contract put on it the day before, so that was mega-disappointing. We're thinking of moving to a slightly less-desirable city to the south of where we currently live to get a little more home for our small investment. We're spoiled in that our current city has a really sweet and quaint downtown area - little boutiques and brick-lined streets. We're not close to it in our current home, but it's only a 10 minute drive. If we move to the new city, it's much more "suburban sprawl-ish" and our little downtown would be 20 minutes away on the freeway. Still not insurmountable, but not as close/convenient. The focus on the home we're looking at on Wednesday is that it has a nice looking pool (I've come to terms with the pool now, for those following my saga!), a decent but not HUGE yard (enough for my illegal chickens), and it's turn-key ready. One of the houses we looked at last Sunday had a squatter in it and the carpet smelled like human urine, so I'm kind of looking forward to seeing that our budget can buy us something not gross. I'm trying to focus less on the actual location and more on the idea that moving to a cheaper home in the suburban-sprawl town will enable me to guarantee to stay home and homeschool - the cheaper cost of living would help ensure we're not as tight in the budget.
*raises hand* here, me!! i'm due 9/28. scared the DDC will have emptied out by that point!
aidenn, i think i've at least driven through your town at some point when i still lived in FL. from what i remember, it was a really beautiful area - unusually historic for Central FL! on the other hand, turn-key is a big pro if you ask me.. fingers crossed for your house hunt, hope you'll find something soon!

yaay he's finally back!! enjoy the reunion Serena - so happy for you!
well, i'm starting off this week (my 34th) with flu-like symptoms. been looking forward to seeing my OB today, but just when we left the house they called us and said she was called into hospital, one of her patients went into labor. her plan is now to catch the baby and head back to her practice, so she *should* still be able to see me later today. for now, we're back at home, waiting to hear back from them.
today is also our 34 week ultrasound - the second (and probably last) one! so excited to see the baby again and see how he's grown since week 20!
generally, i'm feeling better today, still weak and all, but not nearly as bad as yesterday or last night.
DF and i finally decided on our babymoon and booked the hotel last night!! we're going to explore Gold Country in the Sierra foothills. my original idea was to show him Yosemite since he's never been there, but that was too far of a drive for us to feel comfortable.
we booked a room in a somewhat upscale chain hotel, which is so not my thing usually, but i'm really craving comfort and wellness in my current state. the hotel has a heated pool and a spa, and lots of space :) i'm excited. going Friday - Sunday!
other than that, last week we've gotten some bigger things off our list, so i am not super stressed out about getting stuff done this week. i think the biggest things on our list this week is to file the form for domestic partnership, and get my car in for an oil change and possibly inspection. other than that, planning on taking it easy this week i think :)
