Update

I have no new pictures to post, but I figured, writing without pictures is better than no writing at all right? Right now I sit here as I wait for my laundry to finish. I have a few more loads, and I'm hoping to make the most of my time before I go to bed. Michael and I move out of our home tomorrow and in with my mom and dad. I have to admit, I'm very sad to leave my home. I love it. I'll miss it a lot I'm sure, but I'm not not sad to be done moving out of it. I can't even believe how hard it's getting for me to move around. In the past 2 weeks I feel like I've been doing random tasks all the time. We have painted another room, packed up everything we need to live with, and now I'm doing the last of the packing and cleaning everything up. It's so much harder to clean the floor than ever before I have to admit. I've had to do it over such a long time because if I do too much, but stomach just becomes one big contraction, and it's not that comfortable I have to admit. I just keep telling myself that after tomorrow, I can relax, and prepare for this girl to arrive.

I'm now down to 5 weeks to go, and after next week, I start going to the doctor every week until she's here. I cannot even stand how excited I am to meet this girl. Labour terrifies me, but I try to think of the end result, and take comfort in the fact that I don't have to do it all on my own. I'm for sure not the kind of girl who will forego drugs. I mean, I wouldn't go to get a filling done on my tooth without freezing. And, who am I kidding, I'm a wimp. I just hope all goes well, and according to plan for me.

We still don't know a lot of details about moving, and it's driving me a little crazy. I'm just rolling with it though, and as soon as I have more details, I'll be sure to fill you in. I sure have settled down about planning things since I've been married. For those of you who knew me well before I was married, you'd be amazed at how well I can just wait patiently. It's shocking!

Anyhoo, I'm now going to finish another load, and get into bed. Tomorrow is a busy and tiring day for me, as usual.

Yah finally! aha I've been waiting for a post.
Hope things go well with the move, and don't strain yourself missy!
I can't imagine house cleaning when you're 35 weeks pregnant. I already get pooped enough as it is.

ok labor scares me too and I use your exact theory about the going to the dentist and gettting freezing. Just to help.........I did get an epidural both times....and I asked for it before any real pain started ( I am such a wimp) and my babies have both come out with out me feeling a thing. It was great both times. I couldn't stop laughing and telling dumb jokes because I was just so relieved at how easy it was. I was really able to enjoy my babies too. So totally love the epidural route. This is my third pregnancy and I am so scared about going and not getting an epidural. My last labor was 4 hours total and they usually get faster.....and If I don't make it for the epidural I will be so scared.....I am amazed at the people that do it natural. You will be fine though.....I am excited for you
