My 37th week of pregnancy started like this…
I can’t even believe I’m posting this picture, but I feel like you guys deserve to see the real me these days. Flabby, multi-chinned, and totally exhausted.
Fortunately, my 37th week of pregnancy ended like this…
With my last day of work. Maternity leave has started! I could not be happier. (Although I still wasn’t happy enough to dry my hair or put on makeup, but at least I’m upright in my “last day of work” photo–it’s an improvement.)
We kicked off our twice-weekly non-stress tests this week, and everything has been looking great. Baby girl seems perfectly content to sit there and do her thing.
Contractions (BH or otherwise) have been pretty non-existent. I think this little girl intends to stay put for a while. I’m okay with that as long as she doesn’t get too carried away. I’m pretty sure I won’t survive too far beyond 40 weeks.
The nursery is still being painted, but it looks like we might be able to move furniture in on Saturday. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about that! I will feel so much better when her dresser isn’t in the living room and her crib is out of the box and assembled. I need some order so badly.
This weekend is going to be all about finding the order in all of this chaos. We are going to order our couch and the bed for the guest room tomorrow. Baby’s room will start being put together on Saturday. Then I’m determined to get some of our art out of boxes and onto the walls. The house is going to feel like a freaking home by Monday or else!
PS… Car seats. Why are they so damn complicated??? Is it just me? I felt like a total idiot trying to figure out how to adjust the straps and release the damn thing from the base. The instruction manual comes in about 10 languages, but it doesn’t appear that any of them are pregnancy brain friendly.
