Hi all...remember me? : )

I have been so busy lately, between school and freaking out about becoming a mommy (a good kind of freaking out :) that I kind of have neglected my blog... But I have lots of pictures and stuff to say so I am excited to get it out! First,. lets start with the pictures!

Here is his finished nursery!

His crib still isn't in, so he will be in his bassinet in our bedroom until further notice, or well, until mommy and daddy are ready for him to sleep in his own room :)

Here are his going home outfit(s)...I just couldn't decide! The hospital bag is officially packed and put in the car, as well as the car seat base! We did this on last Sunday, 37 weeks and full term!!

So now onto my survey and so much has changed :)

How far along? 37 weeks 5 days...eek!!

Total weight gain/loss: ugh I am beginning to hate this question...34 lbs so far :(

Maternity clothes? always

Stretch marks? I have new ones, courtesy of Mr. Keyser Maddox when he dropped at 36 weeks

Sleep: I have insomnia some nights, I think caused by stress and excitement...but some days I sleep for 12 + hours!

Best moment this week: Seeing my little boy on the ultrasound again! I couldn't really make out what was what because he is so squished, but at 37 weeks and 4 days, he is weighing in at 8 lbs 3 oz. and is expected to gain possibly another lb and a half before his due date. Big boy, just as we expected! :) Hes such a cutie :)

Movement: slowing down to rolls and pushes, but I do know now where his bottom is and his feet are so I know what I am pushing back in when he stretches out.

Food cravings: donuts! caramel apples! snickers! You think this is why I have gained 34 lbs?! :)

Gender: BOY! Handsome and adorable!

Labor Signs: Oh yes. At 35 weeks I started feeling menstrual cramps and back pain. This has only intensified and this week I thought I was seriously going into labor. I am only 1 cm dilated and possibly 50 % effaced, so I don't think these contrax are doing much, but I am definitely feeling them!
Belly Button: still in, I dont think it will ever pop out!

What I miss: I am nesting definitely so no more being lazy for me, lying around the house saying the chores can wait for tomorrow! I miss that! Good thing is that I have not had one dirty dish in my house for the past week, and I have now washed all bed linens and the shower curtain :)

What I am looking forward to: Having this handsome boy in my arms!

Weekly Wisdom: It goes by so quick...I am relishing each and every movement and moment we have together while he is still a inside baby. I am also enjoying my husband a lot because I know that it will no longer be "us" in just a couple of short weeks!

Milestones: Full term and less than 3 weeks until D day!
