33 Weeks

How is it possible that time is both flying by and standing still all at once? On one hand I feel like I'm BARELY pregnant. Take a look at this picture, that obviously isn't the case:

On the other hand, I feel like I have next to no time left to accomplish anything. We have a LOT done, don't get me wrong. But the dog still has no manners, the light fixture in the dining room is still tacky brass and we still haven't come to a decision on what to do with the stupid table that moved here with me from Chicago and currently resides in the baby's room with her stuff all over it.

Oh and I haven't mentioned to my OB that I've hired a doula and plan to do this birth thing au natural. That's kind of a big deal, huh? We have our first "official" doula meeting on 12/5 - I'm SO excited.

31 weeks

Hey y'all! I feel like I've been gone FOREVER. My sister got married over the weekend so we had more traveling, etc going on. I'm exhausted, happy to be home and glad to be done with traveling until after the baby is born.

31 week picture. Please note the clever body positioning so you can't see all of the crap I've spilled down the front of me today. Well, everyday really. I didn't realize that one of the biggest pregnancy "symptoms" was ending up with 1/3 of what I eat down the front of me. There's nothing like finding pieces of (dry) cereal in my bra at the end of the day.

I feel really good otherwise. I have an OB appointment tomorrow where I have to decide if I want to switch doctors (my OB is due a week before me - see previous post), stick it out with her for the rest of my prenatal care or rotate through the practice. I still haven't made up my mind.

The nursery is coming along. The new floors have been installed, it's completely painted and we've moved her dresser into the room. We (Todd) still has to put the crib together, move some miscellaneous stuff out of there and get the rest of the room together. I'll hopefully have some pictures next week.

This weekend is our last Bradley class. I'll be disappointed when it's over. We've hired our instructor to be our Doula so we'll start meeting with her one on one at the beginning of December. I cannot believe how quickly time is passing!
