We've reached 36 weeks and I haven't slowed down one bit! Remember how I said I was holding off on making you a playroom? Well, I've spent all morning taking apart furniture and moving books, office supplies and remaining furniture! As of 20 minutes ago our den/office is now your playroom!
|The den/office before!|
I'm pretty excited to be able to give you your own space in the house (besides your nursery). You're not even here yet and you've already amassed a crazy amount of "big girl" toys that need a home. In additon to those toys, you have your new toy bin organizer that Grandma and Grandpa Snipes bought you and your jumperoo. I'll also be putting a small chair and couch in here so this can still be a nice room for us to all use when your cousins come over. I probably won't get around to painting this room for a while, but that's ok since the existing wall colors already blend nicely with the rest of the house. I'll update you more on the playroom as it progresses!
Clothes: The other day I wore a sweater to work for the first time (I'd been keeping the tags on it, hoping I wouldn't end up needing to wear it) and my coworker told me that I have the cutest maternity clothes. That was really nice to hear!
Sleep: I'm still getting plenty of sleep each night but my stuffy nose and sore throat is back (along with the colder weather) so getting up in the morning is still not easy!
Best moment this past week: Your Dad had to go to
this week for
business so my favorite moment was when he finally came home! He was
supposed to fly from Oklahoma Oklahoma to Chicago and then from Chicago
where I'd drive us both home after I got off work. However, Bloomington got hit with some
nasty winter weather yesterday and his second flight was cancelled! Your
Dad was on the trip with a coworker and they decided to rent a car and drive
home instead of taking a chance on catching a later flight. I was so
relieved when he finally walked through that door (only a few hours late)! Chicago
Movement: I can tell you're running out of space in my belly because your short jabs and kicks are now long, slow, movements that make my entire belly move.
Food cravings: Same 'ol, same 'ol.
Labor signs: Nope.
Belly button in or out? In, but I think I'll become an outtie in a few days!
What I miss: I missed your Dad! Really, I am so relieved to have him home, I didn't know what I'd do if I went in to labor without him!
Doctor’s notes: We're on schedule to have my third and final ultrasound on Valentine's Day!
What I am looking forward to: The ultrasound (of course!), but I also have a much-needed haircut scheduled for this week, and a very important annual meeting with work. It's going to be a very busy few days (Monday-Wednesday) but then I'll get to relax through the weekend. Yay!
