Wrapping It Up

This is the week I've been waiting for.

A week from now, I will be free from office life for about 3.5 months. I spent today wrapping up some work and hanging out in my bed. I am just so tired and uncomfortable. Really, this isn't for the faint of heart. Baby is BIG and heavy at this point, I think we're both uncomfortable and cramped. Baby squirms around in there like I do when I'm trying to get to sleep, side to side, wiggle wiggle. I must say, it's quite the bonding experience. But please baby, get into my pelvis.

I'm 37 weeks today, "early term", whatever that means. I'm holding out until 42 weeks if baby doesn't come on his or her own. That's still 5 weeks.. that sounds unbearable but it's what both my mom and my MIL when through (both went into labor naturally at 42 weeks). I have not dropped. I am not seeing any labor signs. Just hanging tough.

The trim has been completed in the living room, yay. We are puttying holes this weekend and painting early next week. With a little luck, I can bring in my couch and a Christmas tree middle of next week.

Here I am, waiting and trying to wrap up my pre-baby life.


  1. I love the idea of "wrapping up" your pre-baby life. It's like you got a second chance at it...and know how really meaningless it is to say goodbye to pre-baby life (because really, do you care that you didn't get to EVERYTHING before Blue Sunday was born?), and yet you still feel like you need to cram everything in before...THE CHANGE. I am even feeling that now...trying to plan a trip before another pregnancy/kid "ruins" our plans to have fun! And know.

  2. Another exciting milestone... I am so happy for you that you only have one more week at work. Yeah!
