Playing Catch-Up

Well, we have already established that I suck at blogging these days (years).  And I can never really figure out if I want to keep this blog going ... or get rid of it.  But as I go on my 3rd week of pregnancy bed rest, I am B-O-R-E-D and felt like doing a little blogging!  Plus, who knows, maybe I'll feel like blogging once this little guy is here (which will, you know, hopefully be sometime soon).  So in the meantime, let me bring you up to speed ... I'm skipping several belly photos because nobody needs to see that many in a row.  :)

hey look, I cut my hair off! 

So that brings you up to today!  I am 38 weeks and 5 days pregnant (ahhhh) and I've been on bed rest for two weeks for high blood pressure.  Which is starting to get reeeeeally boring.  The good news is that I think we will have a baby this week!  On Monday (at 39 weeks) I'm getting a membrane sweep (TMI?) and hopefully that will help speed things along.  We are also talking about induction with my midwife on Monday because my BP doesn't seem to be going down, despite doing nothing but sitting on my ass for the last couple of weeks.

If I didn't have a job, bed rest would be all fine and dandy I think ... but because I work, I have already lost 2 of my 12 weeks of maternity leave before his little man makes his debut, and thinking about that lost time is really upsetting me.  Sniffles.

BUT.  Besides taking a million more belly shots, let's throw in some more photos of stuff you've missed ...

Lisa got married!!!

 I got a new car!!!

Matt was home for a few days and we had some amazing maternity photos taken.  Love!  :)

I had a baby shower!

And I had another baby shower!

And I had another baby shower!

And all of it has been super duper fun!  :)  Then my blood pressure went up and bed rest started, so I've spent the last couple of weeks in a sad bed rest depression, full of too much tv and internet time and not enough reading/crafting/thank-you-note-writing.  But I decided yesterday to snap out of my depression.  Last night I read a great book, and today I will finish all of my thank-you notes.  Our hospital bags are packed, the car seat is installed, and we are ready for this baby to come!

Are you listening, baby boy?  Let's get this show on the road!  My hips and my back and my pelvis are REALLY starting to hurt!  

Sooooo what's new with all of you?  :)

Well, you have to at least post to let us know he is here, k???

Love Lisa's wedding dress. It's absolutely fabulous and she looked great!

Showers looked like fun- what was your favorite unexpected gift???

I'm so sorry your blood pressure is that high. It really does suck to have to take your time off prior to the baby being here. Hopefully this week is the week!!!

Love the maternity pics. Absolutely adorable!!!! Have a great Sat night!!
