39 weeks and counting

Yup, STILL pregnant over here...and hoping to stay that way for at least a couple more days. Today is hub's 32nd birthday, and tomorrow being April fools...I'm hoping this kid will hold off until at least April 2nd, hee!

On Saturday I was feeling so sore and achey, like I was bruised on the inside - which makes sense actually because this baby kicks HARD. It's left me doubled over in pain at times! Honestly, the contractions I've had are nuthin compared to what I feel when this baby squirms around...things must be seriously tight in there because I swear all my important organs are getting kicked and punched on a regular basis. There's a part of me that is surprised the critter hasn't clawed it's way out yet.
Also? the belly is perfectly calm and quiet during the day - but from about 7pm until late at night, it's all squirming all the time...I'm thinking I should take that as a sign that my kid is a night owl and I should be prepared for a wide awake child at 11pm.

This weekend was pretty mellow, we hung out with the family on Saturday for a little birthday celebration for hubs - he and I hit up SLO for some shopping and errand running. It's slow going for me these days, I can't walk very fast and I have to sit down alot....but I think I feel better being up and around and busy doing things, than sitting at home thinking about how uncomfortable I am.
Sunday, we lounged around all day - I took a nap on the couch - and even Georgia napped most of the day. We figured it might very well be our last weekend of being married with no kids, so we decided to enjoy it and be lazy together :)

I do have a doctor's appointment today - and he'll probably look at me and go "yup, you're still pregnant, see ya next week" hahaha.

Anyway, not much going on over here - just cooking the kid, answering the phones for work, doing laundry and trying to keep my house reasonably clean in the meantime....because I have a feeling that's going to be the first thing to go once this baby comes, hee!

My brother was born on April fool's day...he gets lots of jokes each year, so for the baby's sake, I hope s/he can hold out till Wednesday. Keep us updated, I'm on pins n' needles....

I hope you get your wish and hold off until at least tmrw. I get all teary eyed thinking about the first few hours and days with a new baby...especially a first born. There is nothing like it. S/he will be here before you know it. If you are still pregnant try to enjoy the last days of having that baby all to yourself. It is a strange thing to have him/her on the outside and not all to yourself anymore. Sharing is overrated!!!
