I keep meaning to take a new bump shot, but now with the massive snow we’ve been having each morning, my husband has been scrambling to let the dog out and snow-blow so we can go to work … which means we’ve been rushed in the mornings (when I usually take them). So I’m long over-due. Today, I’m 38 weeks and 3 days along … and scheduled for a C-section in exactly 10 days.
10 days. Holy hell!
But I feel good. I’m resting as much as I can, and trying to get to bed at a decent time. I’m not doing any activities that could add stress to the baby (hence, not dragging the puppy out in the snow!) and am just shopping for exercise 😉 Yea, you heard me. Walking the mall or Target can be a nice break and also a decent walking workout.
The only physical thing I’d like to report is that my appetite has been outrageous–like I could just eat and eat and eat. Apparently that is going to be a recurring theme with nursing. But otherwise, I feel pretty good …
And now on to the fun stuff. Yesterday, I had an absolutely amazing work shower where I truly felt the love … everyone was so sweet and generous and thoughtful and kind, and the messages inside the cards were just as meaningful as the presents they came with. I know I’ve said it before, but I feel so blessed to work where I do, and with whom I do. I felt very special and very loved.
And the cake was out-of-this-world good … dark chocolate raspberry torte (my fave flavor combo!). SO amazing–typically I pounce on icing and leave the cake to the side, but this time, nope … it was worth every bite–the cake was THAT good! And my friends that threw me the shower gave us a mini-version of the cake to take home, which I’ll freeze some of for when my family comes to visit. YUM.
Now the waiting game begins … we have our office holiday party tonight, and then this weekend is “it”… the last hurrah! Kind of wild to think about it that way, but it’s true. Life as we know it is going to change … and I hope to embrace it with open arms!
