Sunday, October 3


***UPDATE: Clarification on my comment at the bottom about miss Sweetcheeks making her appearance soon, that is a friend of mine's baby girl and she had just texted me to say she was in labor and going to the hospital! You can read more about her if you click here .

This weekend I did my best to keep myself busy without being too active. Knowing that this birth is so close makes me feel so restless and I hate just sitting around and wondering and waiting!!

Since this weekend was a drill weekend, we were without Stud Muffin during the day time. {I'm on maternity leave until January!} Yesterday we went to a friends house and helped with a project she's working on for the women's retreat our church is doing at the end of this month. I'm pretty bummed that this is the first one since I started attending this church that I won't be able to go to. They are so much fun!! It's a weekend away in the mountains with 'The Girls' and not to mention the amazing time soaking in my sweet Savior! But there is always next year...

Today that same friend and her husband came over after church service to help me with a surprise for Stud Muffin...

Ever since my OB appointment last week he's been feeling a lot of pressure on his to-do list before baby comes. Since that may be sooner than we ever anticipated, he's been worried and a little stressed.

Recently we sort of gutted our kitchen to get rid of some stuff that was really just taking up space and causing us to feel cramped. We also decided to purchase a pot rack to hang our pots and pans to give us more cupboard space. I found one on eBay that was a really great price. It came in last week, the day we found out I was so dilated...

So I got a great idea to get some help with hanging it for Stud Muffin while he was working and take some pressure off of his to-do list!! I couldn't wait for him to come home and see :D

It's not the greatest picture but you can get the idea. Right now we have the chandalier still up because we need a light in the kitchen but I think we are going to replace it with track lighting. And I'm hoping to get our walls painted this winter!

And with our pots and pans now out of the cupboards I have room in the island for more pantry space. Which is so wonderful because our pantry is ridiculous and hardly even a pantry. It's been a struggle to keep it organized or even to easily see what's actually in there! I'm often buying things that we already have and it's been very frustrating. But this has created a great solution. Check out my extra space:

I'm planning on using these pull outs for canned and baking goods since this side of our island is just opposite the stove/oven! I'm so excited :D

And when Stud Muffin got home he was very pleasantly surprised! 

Or maybe it was just that he was happy to see his family... Either way, I love to see these two smilin'!

And on another note:

Here's my 36 week pic and update.

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 36 Weeks

Size of baby: Baby is the size of a honeydew melon 

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  Gained 12 lbs {I actually lost 2 lbs since the last time I was weighed, probably because of being sick and throwing up so much.}

Maternity Clothes: I pretty much feel like being in my pj's all day! I dread getting dressed each morning because the only thing that is comfortable is comfy clothes.

Gender: It's a surprise!!

Movement: Oh yes! This baby is very active! Mostly at night when I lay in bed to go to sleep.

Sleep: Still having crazy dreams. I am also up several times a night to go to the bathroom. Just practice for the schedule to come...

Symptoms: Crazy dreams, heartburn and reflux, pretty tired all day, frequent bathroom breaks.

What I miss: Being able to do as much activity with Little Lady. And when she wants to cuddle it gets a little tricky, she trys to get comfy but my growing belly just gets in the way :D

Cravings: Most of the time I lack an appetite. I usually settle for a bowl of cereal. The last 3 days though I've been craving cookie dough something fierce!

Best Moment this week: Having my the dr tell me at my OB appointment that I'm already 3.5 cm dilated.

What I am looking forward to: Meeting this little person who will be added to our family so soon! Also hearing about and seeing pictures of little miss Sweetcheeks if she makes her appearance anytime soon...
