Busy Bee

I was talking with my kids about the things on our calendar and realized that there is something scheduled EVERYDAY from now until next Saturday. Whoa. Not all of these things cause us to leave the house (repairman for dishwasher coming) and some things are just routine (piano lessons) but still.



And did I mention that as of today I'm 38 weeks pregnant?

I'm feeling alright most of the daytime. Late afternoon and evenings I feel pretty wiped out and uncomfortable. I feel kinda sorry for my hubby as he's the one who gets to hear me complain. :P

My oldest daughter's getting more excited for the baby, she's asked to come along to the delivery with us. The plan (as much as one can plan) is that she'll be either in the room with me or in the waiting room and be the first person other than Ian and I to see him. :O)

Thankfulness is a feeling that we should try to have all the time but this week is a good time to reflect on all of the blessings in our lives.

~I'm thankful for~

  • Healthy children
  • A loving, hard working husband
  • A warm home (with such luxuries as clean running water and modern appliances....things I too often take for granted)
  • uncomplicated pregnancies
  • loyal friends
  • laughter
  • coffee
  • a full pantry
  • cozy socks
  • amazing friends I've met through the internet :O)
  • the freedom to homeschool
and most of all a wonderful Savior

Pregnancy week 36

I'm not sure how I got to this point so fast, but I'm 36 weeks along as of tomorrow!

~I had my OB appointment this morning and baby boy's heartbeat sounds good.

~My belly is measuring right on 36 weeks.

~My iron levels are low :( He now has me taking two iron pills daily, hopefully this will help me with all the tiredness I've been having!

~I'm dilated 2 cm...Yay for early progress!!

I have a list (that feels like it's a mile long) of things I want to get done before the baby's born. You'd think that those things would be occupying my thoughts.


Instead I think about labor and delivery.




The end.
