bump and baby update: 36 weeks

Y'all I'm slowing down something fierce. I'm sure it's apparent by my lack of posts lately. I can think of a million things I want to accomplish each night, but it just isn't happening. I've finally been able to get the house back under control and it's taking everything I have to keep it that way.

Here I am at 36 weeks. It's still so shocking to believe that in less than 4 weeks I will be able to hold my sweet baby boy. The hubs keeps joking that he could come any day now. That definitely wigs me out, but as each day passes I'm becoming more and more ok with the idea.

I had another doctor's appointment this afternoon and everything is progressing along. Q is still head down and I'm pretty sure he's dropped, another reason the hubs things he will be making his appearance early. The best part of the appointment was when the nurse told me I hadn't gained any weight this week!

The nursery is really coming together! I'm so happy with how it all looks. The crib is painted, assembled, and ready for a sleepy baby. This weekend mom will be finished painting the dresser. All of his clothes and blankets have been washed and put away. I purchased the canvas bins for the changing table, filled them with baby goodies, and put them in place. We purchased a 5' x 7' rug to soften the room. There are still a few things to be done though.

  • paint frames for circus posters then hang
  • sew pads for rocking chair
  • get pad to put under rug so it won't slide around
  • find lamp to put over changing table
  • paint bookcase
After this weekend I'll hopefully have crossed off a couple more items. Time is ticking down so I must stop procrastinating!
