I'm Still Pregnant...

If you know me, you know this is AMAZING! Today I'm 38 weeks pregnant. This is my third baby and I've never been THIS pregnant before. It is crazy! I'm actually to the point now where I hope Little Miss waits until next Thursday because I have all the plans made and everything taken care of.

I got up this morning and put on some lounge pants and when I went to grab a t-shirt I realized that none... NONE of my t-shirts will fit over my belly. So what did I do.... I went shopping on my husband's side of the closet. :) I can't believe how big my belly is and every day it seems to get bigger and bigger!

Today we are having a bit of bad weather so the girls and I are staying inside. I wish I could say this was different than every other day for us, but it isn't. I haven't been getting out by myself (other than a quick trip to the post office yesterday afternoon) just because it is too physically hard on me. And I'm afraid of going into labor. Basically we just stay home and play around the house. We play a lot in the girls' room where I can sit/lay on the bed which is nice. I have zero energy and I could pretty much sleep at any point during the day except at night when I want to sleep - then I'm wide awake!

I have pretty much quit calling my family because every time I call they pick up the phone all kinds of excited expecting me to tell them we are having the baby.... then I have to disappoint them. So I just wait on my mom, sister, dad, etc. to call me now :) Speaking of which, my dad called last night while my phone was in the bedroom charging and I hadn't checked it in about an hour. He started to freak out so he called my sister and asked her if she thought we were at the hospital. Like I wouldn't call him!!! Then he did something he has only done ONE other time in the past 4 years, he called Jared. I laughed so hard.... he seriously thought we were having the baby and weren't going to call him. He is so funny!

Everyday I mark the calendar as we get one day closer to meeting this little girl. 6 days left! I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend that may include some quality time with my sweetie and some house cleaning and maybe even a nap for this momma! Happy Friday everyone, hope you have a wonderful weekend as well!
