35 Weeks

WOW! Where has time gone? It's almost October and I'm almost a mommy! I feel like we're so close to the finish line, but time is crawling like a snail....wait, didn't I just say time has gone quickly?! Well days are going quickly, but I feel like the part I'm anxiously waiting for is taking forever!

The past few days I've experienced the "nesting" phase. I want to clean sooo badly. Unfortunately, my vacuum is not working and that is driving me insane. I want to vacuum more than I've ever wanted to do before. We also had an unexpected issue come up with our sprinklers and while I normally wouldn't care about the outside (that's hubby thing) the water puddle in the backyard is driving me NUTS!

I also have been hinting around to hubby that I wanted to rearrange the living room (again) back to the way it was a few months ago and last night he willingly offered to do it...maybe he's nesting too! Our living room is cozy again and there is more room for the dogs and Roxy's kids to play.

I am definitely not nesting in the kitchen department. Lately (since month 2 of pregnancy) I have not wanted to cook. It got a little better a few months ago, but now I'm back to square 1 where the idea, the smell, and the work it takes to make dinner are just not something I want to do right now. Thankfully I have a great friend who is understanding and a great cook living with us....she cooks almost every day and it's always something my husband loves. I'm hoping once Peighton is here and I'm back to "normal" I will feel up to cooking again.

Pregnancy is something I have dreamed of experiencing for the last 3 years. I never thought I'd have the chance to experience it, but here I am! It's both rewarding and extremely hard at times. I have horrible pain in my hips, more than frequent urination, and back pain. I have to think though my pregnancy could be much much worse so my few complaints are nothing to be too upset about. The few weeks on "couch" rest were not horrible and actually allowed me to slow down.

So, there are no other updates and nothing new to report on....maybe next week's appointment will have some news to share :) Here is my weekly pic.

Would you like to come nest at our house? :) Love your baby belly. So close, Momma!

Your last update was the day Jake was born! :) I can't believe how close you are! I can't wait to see pics of her! I know what you mean about the long journey to get here, we had the same thing. The last month of pregnancy was sooooo tough, but I just remembered how lucky we were. Now I actually miss it! Weird! I'm so much happier that he's here don't get me wrong, but I kind of miss the belly and the little movements and excitement.

Any questions you have about labor email me! There is more I experienced after birth/during, but some guys read my blog so I couldn't exactly type it LOL ;) It will be tough, but it doesn't last too long, and totally worth it!

So now you need to update lady! You're going to go early probably, so make sure you take one last belly pic!
