Hello Computer

Hello, Hello.  It has been awhile.  I haven't been on my actual computer in a long time.  I can check some things from my cell, but it's easier to respond if I'm on an actual computer. 

I would definitely say the last 7-10 days have been my induction into the "uncomfortable" phase of pregnancy.  I'm lucky that I'm one that just has the last 3 weeks to get through while being uncomfortable.  But with that said, is why I've been so absent on here and f.book.  After working 9+ hour days, adding in a 40 min commute each way, I get home exhausted.  Plus my poor hands and feet are sure feeling the added pressure on all my veins.  Blood flow isn't what it used to be, therefore swelling is definitely happening.  Just enough swelling to be uncomfortable, but not nearly as bad and some of my family and friends have had to experience.  So I just come home, lay down, and get my feet up for the remainder of my night.  It's pretty hard to work on my laptop while laying sideways with my feet elevated and a little boys feet still waging war with my ribs.  So finally this morning, I thought I would give it a go.

Alright, done whining.

Over the past week, we've gotten a lot of the last minute to-do things done.  Car seats are in!  Now if the State Patrol will call me back so I can schedule a safety check with them.  A lot of the places schedule their safety checks for stay at home mom schedules.  So hopefully this option will work.  The nursery is all organized and things put away.  Crib and PackNPlay sheets are washed and on.  Baby Will's laundry is all caught up.  Diaper bag was delivered and it is packed!  Its cute, but not too cute to where Tim will be embarrassed to carry it.
We've got our take home outfits for Baby Will.  My Type A personality has come out and I've got outfit A and outfit B.  My first choice is the "Definitely Worth the Wait" onesie but it's sized at 3-6 months.....which he may fit into and not look like he's swimming :)  My second choice is this cute blue sweater and hat combo that is sized 0-3 months.  So we'll see what he fits into :)
So now, we're just playing the waiting game.  Which I am no good at.  God didn't give me a lot of patience when I was born.  And I didn't learn why or how much I needed patience till later on....that whole infertility process helped with that lesson.  Then not having an ultrasound for over 4 months solidified that lesson.  (All the IF ladies know what I'm talking about.  4 months is crazy long!)  I didn't ask the Doc once about sneaking an extra in.  But now, my "baby brain" must have ate my patience lessons because I've lapsed in my patience progression.  I want to meet him now!!!  I've ate two whole pineapples and have my third chillin in the fridge.  I've had spicy food for every meal for the past 3 days.  And later today I'm cleaning all the floors....come on Will!

So now I'm back in the swing of things...alive and well...and waiting.

FYI-Fire Dept on LSL Blvd also install and/or will check your seats for you. You can call to make an appt or stop by in hopes that someone is available....I've done both and have had luck everytime. I'm so VERY happy for you and hope you can enjoy your next couple of weeks. Take Care, Katie
