36 weeks

It's the final countdown....
{I hope}

I'm finishing up my 36th week! Tomorrow I will be 37 weeks, and try to stay caught up on weekly belly shots until baby boy comes :)

On Friday, January 18th, Barrett turned FIVE! Cannot believe my baby boy is five! We celebrated with super hero parties all weekend long! Then a final party Monday for all his friends! (post on that to come).

On Saturday, it was GORGEOUS outside. Gave us major spring fever, but we took advantage and spent most of the day outside. Justin stacked more wood, Barrett rode his Gator all over the yard and played in his fort. I "winterized" the back patio (just a couple months too late). Put all the cushions and gazebo rug in the basement, and stacked the furniture up. Swept up some leaves and cleaned up some of Barrett's toys. I was a sweaty mess!

That night Justin's friend came over to help texture the walls in the nursery! Yay!! They are done and look awesome, but that was one messy job! We were really smart to plan that the night before Barrett's birthday party! We were up late cleaning up. I was on my hands and knees crawling from the back door, through the kitchen, into the entry and up the stairs to the nursery...scrubbing white footprints off the floor! Then we vacuumed everything and I wiped all the floors down again with Murphy's oil soap and water. By 11pm, I was having some major braxton hicks contractions!! 

Sunday afternoon I got to go to lunch with my girlfriends, and then we had our family over for Barrett's birthday that evening. Tuesday I met my sweet friend Sara at the coffee shop for breakfast and to talk shop. Always a good time, and my belly was happy with the whole wheat Belgium waffle! 

Wednesday I had my 36 week doctor's appointment. Not much new to report. At my 35 week appointment, I was dilated to1cm. This time they didn't check me. Baby's heartbeat was 138/140. The didn't mention my weight, so I guess it was okay--haha!! My doctor and midwife are both supportive and hopeful that I'll be able to go into labor on my own and have a VBAC. I won't be able to be induced (which is fine with me), so we've scheduled a c-section for February 18th, IF I haven't had him before then. Fingers crossed!!! Say some "baby come out" prayers for me!

  1. Almost there! Can't wait to see photos of the finished nursery. And be careful of doing too much - I swear the 2 days of cleaning, cooking, and baking for Thanksgiving is what put me into labor 3 weeks early with Finley. Lot of braxton hicks and back pain and then contractions started. You are so close!


I LOVE reading comments, so thanks for stopping by :)
