week 36- oh my achey butt

For the record, I had my big parka coat with me and only took it off for the 10 seconds it took for the auto-shutter to go off. It was like 8 degrees out there! Brrrrr! And then I ran back to my car and hoped that I got a good shot because there would be NO re-takes!

Ok so now about the past 3 weeks… I'm HUGE! So I get tired so easily and need naps all the time. Lugging this baby girl around is really making my hips and my tail bone hurt. The cold weather probably doesn't help with that, I imagine. But overall, my health is good and I'm keeping up ok with most things, even with Caleb… as long as I also get to nap during his nap :)

The other funny thing that's happened is that my hands are so swollen, I'm extra clumsy and drop stuff all the time. These big sausage fingers can't grip anything right! So I have to really concentrate as I clean up around the house or I'll break everything. I can't tell you how many times I've dropped my cell phone these past couple of weeks (which I NEVER did before!). So weird.

I need lots more water now than I did even just a month ago. If I don't drink enough, the Braxton Hicks contractions really pick up and I have to lay down for a minute. I'm trying to still stay active, though, and it's not like Caleb will let me sit on the couch all day anyway! He doesn't care that it's cold out, he needs outings! :)

Last night I talked to my mom about plans for having her come help me again once baby girl arrives. It gives me so much peace of mind to know that she will be here, so I'm actually feeling pretty confident about how ready I am to meet our daughter! I remember with Caleb I was really nervous and anxious, but this time around I'm feeling pretty good about the whole thing. Of course there are uncertainties and who knows what will happen, but I'm confident we will make it work!

My hospital bag is packed and I've got a closet full of baby girl stuff thanks to all our friends. One more week until I'm full term and after that… bring it on! :D

Now if we could only agree on a NAME… ;)
