A Few Final Formalities

Well, we have made it to 36 weeks...actually, I only 3 days away from being a full 37 weeks! It seems so crazy that in 3 days, Emmalee will be considered full term! It definitely makes my heart happy!

Today's doctor appoint was definitely promising. I'm making quite a bit of progress and baby girl has completely dropped. This picture is a horrible picture of me, but you can definitely see how low she is and she has just popped out!

For the most part, I'm still feeling really good. I've had some back pains and usually have 2-3 contractions a day, but so far nothing too horrible. I'm sleeping ok - some nights are better than others. My feet hurt pretty bad at night no matter how much support is in my shoes...I think a nice 35 lbs rapid weight gain is to blame!

With labor not far away, there are just a few things that I have left to get done - those last minute formalities! Last weekend I got Emmalee's bag packed and this week I got my bag packed; the car has been details; the carseat base properly installed...we are almost ready!

But for those last minute necessities, Etsy has definitely become one of my new best friends. I love all the handmade items - they are so great! I ordered this "3 in 1" Carseat canopy, nursing cover and blanket. The black/white/pink color scheme matches her diaper bag, and I just love the idea of everything coordinating.

Brant finished making the shelf in her room last week. I was so excited to get this up in her room - it is definitely one of my favorite items and I absolutely love that fact that her daddy handmade it. Then today, I found this nightlight for her room. Again - its Etsy - but it was so adorable that I couldn't pass it up!
Everything left on my to do list is pretty simple:
  • get the hospital favors together
  • get some of her clothes washed
  • give my house a good cleaning
  • and just WAIT! I feel like that is the number one thing I'm doing right now - waiting on the baby girl!!!
