Happy Easter!

Not much to report over here....still pregnant - 38 weeks today!
I have good days and bad days - definately more good than bad...honestly I'm pretty sure it depends on how I sleep the night before. I've started getting up at about 3am and moving to the couch because it's easier to prop myself up.
The baby hasn't dropped and nothing much is happening...although I do have contractions more often now - they're nothing major. I used to think I'd be early, and there was no possibility of me going to April 6th...but now I'm not so sure. Especially when I have a good day like today, I wonder if I could just be pregnant forever...ha!
We went to church last night and then at noon today met up with my family at a park and hid eggs for the kids - hubs was great and sent them on a treasure hunt full on with clues and everything, kept them busy and out of trouble :)
I pretty much just sat in a camp chair in the shade and enjoying chatting with everyone and watching the kids play and eating WAAAAY too many frosted sugar cookies. All in all, a good day - and of course the weather has been gorgeous all weekend.
We got our car detailed yesterday and installed the car seat - which just blew my mind because everytime we go somewhere, I take a sideways glance at the back seat and nudge hubs and say "hey...there's a carseat back there". We both just get wide eyed and trip out on how soon there will be an actual BABY in that carseat.

Over all, I must say - I'm feeling pretty darn good at this point...I have my moments of severe uncomfort, but honestly - it hasn't been that bad. I feel very blessed at this point in my life to feel as good as I do!
Tomorrow I'm on a hunt for comfortable flip flops though because these swollen feet of mine are NOT into putting on actual shoes, and I realized I tossed all my flip flops at the end of summer because they were so hammered. I also will be looking for a thin cotton robe to bring to the hospital...I'm all about thin cotton these days!

Anyway - just giving a quick update - I have an appt tomorrow so maybe I'll have more info after that. It's just a waiting game for us now - we kinda feel like our lives are on hold until this baby comes. In the meantime, I'm resting and putting my puffy feet up as much as I can!

Hope you all had a good Easter!

Ugh! Puffy feet suck! I had cafankles.... swollen calves, feet and ankles. It was horrible. I'm all for flip flops. I laughed today when I went to my classroom and there were my slippers under my desk. I couldn't wear any shoes towards the end. I'm glad you're not too uncomfortable. It sounds like you're in high spirits. I'm excited for you! Only 14 days to go. You're doing great!
