So I am officially in the home stretch. 4 weeks or so to go. I keep thinking he is going to come early or its more of a feeling really, but the doctor told me yesterday, nope. He appears to be in there for the long haul :p Well Doctor, I don't like your opinion so there, ha! Also, I am still anemic. So now have to remember to take my iron pills twice a day! As if taking them once a day isn't hard enough to remember. Baby measured large yesterday so the doc ordered an ultrasound next week to see how big he is getting. I wonder if he was sitting funny or it could have been the big lunch I had, heehee! Because all my other visits he's measured right on track. But my appetite hasn't slowed down a bit and I'm craving pie all the time. Thank goodness we don't keep it in the house because I can seriously eat two or three slices in a sitting. And don't you dare try to take my slice, I'll cut you.

We did finally clear out the guest room and some of the office. Went through a ton of things and had a yard sale last weekend. Sold most of the big ticket items and all the little things we didn't sell I took them to Goodwill. So nice to be rid of all that stuff. I was starting to feel like a hoarder. Couldn't even walk in our dining room. We set up the crib, glider and dresser in the nursery. I'm going to finish decorating it this weekend so hopefully next week I can show you pictures, ooohhhh. Only item we weren't able to buy was the futon for the office. But that's because IKEA has it on backorder so we have to wait, boo!
Umm, let's see, what else? We finished our birth classes. They were informative and lots of good reminders. But we'll see how many of them I'll actually remember when I go into labor :p Baby is definitely riding lower, so I have a good waddle going on when I walk. My right foot stays swollen and feels tight all the time. I get out of breath getting up from the couch and walking to the kitchen. But that just means I'm that much closer, right? Baby is moving all the time now, I think he is frustrated because he is running out of room. No lie the other day I thought he was doing the rumba and shaking some maracas at the same time. I was like what the world?
We are definitely getting excited though. Ready to meet our little guy and I'm ready to have my body back :) Since I'm near the end I'll try to update the blog once a week. See you then!
