So upon entering each new week I always read the updates on whats going on with the baby and what to expect from my body….at the end of this for week 29 they say pack your hospital bag so you are ready because apparently it is time to start really preparing. OMG! I almost immediately called my mom I need a nightgown for the hospital! I really want to put LOL after that last sentence but I really am freaking out a little. I went over our birth plan with Nathan yesterday and am calling pediatricians today…..yep definitely freaking out! At least the room is coming together for our little man. I am about to start shopping for the things I didn’t get gifted with that I really need. ( and some things that I just want….hot air balloon decor!) The house is coming together nicely…no dining room addition start as of yet. Majorly craving tomatoes and strawberries…not together thank goodness. Pizza also sounds like what I want for practically every meal, I am trying to use restraint but it doesn’t always work out for me!

Entering the 3rd trimester is scaring the bejeezes out of me. I am so not ready for the baby yet and I realize I still have 12 weeks but that just doesn’t seem like that long! The house is getting done and the addition is sort of started it should be underway soon in a way that I am being reassured means it won’t take long once it starts. I haven’t done ANYTHING for the baby’s room or stuff! I have got to get with the program. This is recital week so that means recital is basically the only thing we can do and Nathan will be gone all of this weekend and next weekend so I am freaking out a teeny bit but I think I will feel better if I just start working on it so that is my goal for this weekend!Just start. If I do some each day it will snowball into done…I know this about myself so just START AMY!!! OK I feel a little better…. never mind me trying to talk to the baby about hanging in there until at least Christmas as I am not sure I even want to think about being ready for labor! I scheduled our hospital tour today….and it seems very real now, real and close!
I have become somewhat obsessed with TLC’s A Baby Story. Why I feel the need to cry at 4 births a day and stress out over labor every morning before work and at lunch when I get home I have no idea but I can’t seem to help myself.
It is not smart to send a hungry pregnant woman to the store, I went to Albertson’s yesterday before I ate lunch to get some bananas and a loaf of bread, I left with 5 lbs of apples, 2 lbs of strawberries, 2 avocados, onions, limes, a ridiculous amount of bananas, bread, a gigantic container of Goldfish crackers, a container of already cut up watermelon and a crate of apricots. For a woman that barley tolerates fruit….well can I just say I am definitely having pregnancy cravings. Mostly of the strawberries, I want the on or with everything. Guacamole will also be present in my VERY near future!
Not much going on this week other than a crazy and ridiculous schedule between hubby’s gigs and kids dance. Dance is almost over but that means it amps up for a couple of weeks. Just realized how crazy the weekends in June are going to be….trying my best not to plan much for July for some much needed rest and final getting ready for baby’s arrival stuff. It does look like the dining room/pantry addition will be moving along pretty smoothly at this point…fingers crossed! Looked on The Bump this morning for my weekly baby update….it says he is the size of a rutabaga…its extra interesting to me as I have no idea what that is! LOL!
Little man was having a good time last night. I was reading and had my book propped on my belly and he repeatedly kicked it, one time it almost hit me in the face when he did. Nathan got to feel him moving all over the place too last night he was really jamming in there.
So between the craziness of still unpacking and finding things, the beginning of the demolition for the addition to the house, the baby shower and my Mr.’s crazy busy work schedule I scheduled my physical therapy….I was excited that maybe there was some pain relief in my future and stressed that therapy was gonna be awful. As it turns out I won’t find out till next week because they misplaced my folder and so I sat at the PT office for an hour and didn’t get therapy. Sigh. That was Thursday and it was just one more thing on a list of things that at any point I should have just crawled back in bed and started over on Friday. Can you do that? Can you just skip a Thursday?
