I'm Alive!

Wow!  Once again it's been awhile, sorry about that.  I just wanted to make sure everyone knows that I am alive, well and still pregnant.  Sorry for the confusion the last post may of caused :) 

So, yes, still pregnant.  There is an end in sight though!  I am 37 weeks, which is what I was when I was induced with C due to no growth on his part.  Because of my history of growth restriction, and a few other indicators, my doctor told me today that they will not let me carry past 39 weeks.  That means baby will be here within the next 2 weeks!  2 WEEKS!  I am so ready for this baby, but it makes it much more real to hear something like "We will induce you at 39 weeks if you haven't naturally had this baby by then."  I find out next week the exact date of my induction.  Of course, this is all assuming my last ultrasound tomorrow (Friday) goes well.  I have no reason to think that something is going wrong, but I thought that with C 2.5 years ago also. 

Things have been busy.  And because I am such a good friend who keeps up with email correspondences, I will answer a question a friend asked in my blog instead of emailing her back...I know, best friend material right there :)  Am I nesting?  The short answer is yes!  The long answer is, I want everything ready now and not a minute later!!  Pretty sure I'm driving Hubby crazy with my rearranging, starting projects, shopping, talking about shopping, comparing, and whatever else it is my nesting has decided to involve. 

I have also been soooo tired and suffering from swollen feet.  I did decide that a mid afternoon nap was in order, so I cut my work hours by 2.5 hours.  I am now out of work by 12:30 every day and so far I have taken a 2.5 hour nap every day except one when I met my oldest sister and cousin for lunch.  I have found my mood is better, and I'm able to stay up a little later at night, which means a little more me and Hubby time after C goes to bed. 

We've also had some fun family activities the last couple weeks.  I am going to work on getting some posts together and scheduled to share all the Fall Family Fun we've had! 

Oh, I do have to share the highlight of the last couple of weeks with you.  So, just to prove how cool Hubby and I still are, the highlight is....our double stroller!  Last week at my checkup, I found out I was 1 cm dilated, so my in-laws decided to surprise us with our double stroller!!!  I know, cool personified, that's us! 

So, no promises, but stay tuned for some pretty cool posts about this cool family :)

Our stroller.  The Chicco Cortina Together.  (Nerd, I know!)
