36 Weeks

Here she is in all her glory! Good gracious I can't believe I have a 3 1/2 weeks till this little wee one arrives! I swear it was yesterday when I said I had seven weeks. Everyone kept telling me that the last few weeks would go by really slow but HONESTLY I think someone hit fast forward!!!! Since then I have been extremely busy with...

-maternity sub plans
-finishing up the babes room
-parent teacher conferences
-planning Christmas parties
-getting ready for Christmas
-Doctor's appointments
-Baby showers

I don't think I have gotten home before 6 at all the past few weeks. I am booked solid until the end of school so I am really looking forward to enjoying my last few weeks of freedom doing lots of...

-Sleeping in
-Running anywhere I want without having to put too much effort into an errand
-Sleeping through the night
-Spending quality time with just me & my Scottie
-Last minute touches on the babe's room

I have one more week of teaching (until March) which is weird. I am finally done with maternity sub plans and I could really have the baby tomorrow and all would be well at school. It is really hard to believe that in 3 1/2 weeks our little family of two (well three if you include lem lems) will soon be THREE! We are sooo excited for her to arrive and I really don't think I could be happier. Everyday I feel so blessed and I am so excited for this new adventure in our lives.

36 Weeks Stats:

-50% Efaced
-Dilated to 1/2 cm (he prob just told me that to make me feel better haha)
-Still buttoning my jeans
-Only having to get up once to go potty at night
-Love a hamburger but I DO NOT LIKE meat on the bone aka ribs
-Cravings include: Hot Chocolate ahhh so yummy, sprite or any other fruit flavored fizzy drink such as cherry 7 up. Funny how my cravings are both drinks???? Better find something that's diet and fast!
-I think my leg hair has completely stopped growing. STOPPED??? Wait I thought that when you're pregnant it was suppose to grow like a weed! I haven't shaved for at least 2 weeks and there is not a prickle on my legs???? Yes its' nice. Kinda like free laser hair removal I guess.
-Haven't felt tired yet. Maybe because I have SOOOO much to do that I don't even have time to be think about being tired. Maybe once school is out I'll crash.
-Feeling my baby girl move all over and LOVING IT!!

Right now Scottie is getting anxious for her to arrive in 2010. That way we can get the tax credit. Guess that's what happens when you're married to an accountant. Really I wouldn't mind it either but the problem is I DO NOT want to have her and be in the hospital in 2010 & 2011 and end up paying two co-pays. If this one is anything like her daddy, she will be early. And let's just say that if she is anything like her mama she will be fashionably late. But let's face it, we'll both be happy whenever she decides the time is right.

YAY only 25 days till this little couple is mommy and daddy!!!

Okay, how funny. I had the same thing with my leg hair. Everyone kept telling me the opposite, but I swear my hair stopped growing. Sooo jealous of the buttoning up pants things!!!
