Feeling Weird


Only 8 weeks left until she's due!


Not sure how to explain this really. I feel so tired, exhausted really, but antsy at the same time. I want to be up preparing things and cleaning for this impending arrival. But I can only do things for maybe 30 minutes before I'm completely wiped out. I've heard that this is normal, but it is strange.
Not to mention that yesterday all three cats tried to lay on me at the same time. That never happens, so it made me nervous that something was going to happen. Nothing did, I'm fine, Phoebe is fine.

I finished knitting the last of the gifts for Dana's baby girl yesterday. Now I just need to get it all boxed up and shipped to her. Maybe I'll do that sometime next week. I found the cutest child's sweater pattern on Ravelry this morning. It's called Cardigan for Merry. It is an adaptation of an adult sweater, A Cardigan for Arwen. Yes, I'm dorky enough to want us to have matching sweaters. :P

Oh, my cousin's son weighed 7lbs 11oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. He just looked so big because he has chubby cheeks. They are home and both doing well. :)

Belly Shot


I forgot to include a pic in the last post. So, here I am at 30 weeks.

Wow

Is it really September already? Where has the summer gone? Oh, I know...I've been so wrapped up in my cocoon of pregnancy that I didn't notice! :D

I only have 10 weeks left until Phoebe is due. I feel like we aren't ready. The crib still needs sanded and painted, then we need to buy the mattress. My mom still has the dresser and rocking chair for me.

I have the baby's bag packed for the hospital, but not mine. I need to get a going home outfit for myself. I'm thinking a terry cloth track suit sounds nice and comfy. My friend Amber gave me a bag full of things for the hospital at the baby shower. She said they were all the things that she wished she had had when she gave birth. It has things like a word search book, gum, candy, slippers, and a toiletries bag full of samples. It was so kind and thoughtful of her.

Last night we had the last of the childbirth classes. I think DH learned a lot. It didn't help his nerves though, which was why I wanted him to go in the first place. I also registered to take the breast feeding class taught by the lactation consultant. Hopefully it will be just as informative.

My cousin gave birth to her son yesterday, she was due on Friday. He's a BIG boy. I'm not sure yet how much he weighs, but he looks huge!

I have so many friends that are pregnant now. It's so exciting! I wish I lived closer to them. It would be so fun to have play dates and to get their advice on everything. I'm a first timer, the rest of them all have other children. Oh well, I guess I just have to be content with Facebook. LOL
