38 weeks...a little late!

Yes, we are actually almost into the 39th week.  I have been in a slump where I don't want to blog,...or do anything for that matter!  I have been feeling sick and really tired, so all I want to do is try to relax and do nothing.  But that seems like a thing of the past.  I used to be able to sit on the couch and watch a good hour or two of TV and think nothing of it when I was tired.  Now, I sit down and start watching something, and 10 minutes later I'm up taking care of something.  Maybe this is my kind of nesting stage.  Our house is by no means dirty because we, yes WE, cleaned it and have been making a great effort to keep it that way so that I don't have to spend too much time working after work. 

But I think the reality of all this has finally set in for hubby.  He is worrying about things finally.  He never worries!  We do not have a basement on our house and we have talked about doing something since we moved in.  We've spent lots of hours at the neighbors when bad weather was coming or the sirens were going off.  But we both agree that packing up baby in the middle of the night to run to the neighbors doesn't sound like much fun.  So, he decided we are putting an addition on the garage where we can put a crawl space, or larger room.  I guess I agree that this is necessary, but I hate the thought of doing this now.  Seems like something that should have been done a few months ago! 

Anyway, back to week 38.  We are slowly getting there.  Seems like the last few weeks have been an eternity. 


  1. You look great but it looks uncomfortable... and your feelings are quite normal - I remember just wanting to cry and did the last week - hormones, I guess. Remember, this to shall pass and all will be well.
    love ya - Dolly

  2. The last couple of weeks are stressful! But, keep your chin up, it's all worth it in the end. I remember thinking the last week of carrying Tyson around if I could just skip the labor and delivery part but even that wasn't so bad. Can't wait to meet Baby P!!!
