Today, I'm officially the most pregnant I've ever been! I feel better passing into this week 37, although I'd still prefer if things stay quiet for another 2-3 weeks. ;)
Having a quiet holiday weekend. I had a midwife appointment Friday, which went well. I'm still working with DH to get some project done around here (he's actually in "work mode" instead of "chill mode" for a change, so I'm keeping that momentum rolling as long as possible). He's facelifting the downstairs bathroom, making the sink drain actually functional and replacing some water-damaged wall areas. I'm working on deep cleaning stuff, like washing all the mini blinds (next time, I'll probably just buy new ones because it's a huge PITA to me), organizing and purging, and making sure I have all my home birth supply checklist on hand.
It's pretty cool here today, so when DH gets back from his bike ride, we're going to make and can a bunch of dilly beans, and probably bake a lasagna or two for dinner and freezer. I'm also going to make a batch of granola (I'm addicted to this easy recipe I've been making) and perhaps chicken stock (although I should have started that this morning, so it's low-priority for today).
My doula is a professional photographer, and has offered to do a maternity shoot as part of her service, so we're going to do that one evening this week. I didn't have maternity photos the first time around, so I'm excited. She's so cool...she's also offered to take pics during labor/birth/newborn and some family photos postpartum at no extra charge, we just have to buy whatever prints we want. She's newer to the community, so I'm happy to help her get her name out!
Other than that, we'll just be laying low, going to the beach a day or two, doing some more canning/freezing, and seeing the chiropractor. I dropped the bomb to the OB office last week that I'm planning a home birth, to the brand new doctor (wasn't planning on that, but my regular person was in surgery). I go back on Thursday, so I'm expecting another weird conversation, but trying to not get worked up about that.
What's everyone got going on this week? Some of us are SO CLOSE! I'm sure we'll have some more birth announcements this week.
