I am full term! Whoo hoo. She could come any day and will most likely be just fine outside the womb. I am so excited! Kate will be here in 2 weeks! Brian and I are in nesting mode, trying to get things organized-like Kate really cares if the picture hanging sets are organized and stored according to weight capacity, or if all of our instruction manuals are catalogued, or if I sorted and stored the light bulbs, or...well, you get the idea. I need to force myself to r-e-l-a-x and put my feet up.
Cravings: sweets! and water (not swiss chard)
How I'm feeling: I keep getting leg cramps and they hurt. I also feel very very swollen (and I AM swollen). It warmed up around here and I went "poof." Only a few things still fit and I just feel and look huge. I'm so excited and happy, though, that I don't really care.
Sleep: turning over is painful, and I'm starting to have a little bit of insomnia from being so excited-ha!!!
My favorite part of this week: Watching Kate on the sonogram. I could barely make her out, but I recorded what will be my last sonogram. I couldn't believe how BIG she is!
Planning: I typed out a "Harper Handbook" for when the grandparents watch her during our hospital stay.
We had a busy weekend with 2 birthday parties, a stroll around downtown, and a trip to Bethesda.
|Harper had some of my milkshake on Thursday and liked it so much that we took her for ice cream! Finally!|
