So I finally found a background I liked, though I was looking for a fall-inspired theme. Oh well! It works and I like it. I'll be working on my sidebars soon. It takes quite a long time for me to fill it all back up. Let me know if it's easy to read, since that can be a problem for some people.
Anyway, I'm 36 weeks. Holy cow that means I'm in month 9 of pregnancy! And I'm feeling large and in charge. And crazy thing is that the swelling I posted about not long ago? No more swelling (other than my fingers feeling it a bit). I'm shocked. But very happy! I thought my feet would be blimps and able to carry me off!
This week's appointment is my GBS swab. Fun times! GBS = Group B Strep
I assume that also means they check for dilation but I'm not sure. Not that it would matter this early on.
Today is also the official start of fall! I absolutely love this time of year. It is my favorite, as it is for most people. There's just something about the beauty and the smell of change. The air feels electric. It's as though people are getting themselves all revved up before the winter blues hit.
My sister sent a box of baby clothes to me from when she had her third daughter (yes we both have three girls and no boys!). It was awesome to go through and bonus, she sent me my favorite B&B Works lotion/wash! I already washed all the clothes and put them in Zoe's drawers after getting the box at dinner last night.
My MIL and SIL have volunteered to throw Zoe a little party before her arrival! This is more of a celebration party than "showering" the mother with gifts, since I have pretty much everything. Some people feel weird about showers after the first baby but each baby deserves some sort of celebration before they're born or shortly after their birth. It's a celebration of their very first Birth Day! It's always small and intimate so I'm looking forward to good food and relaxing with people who are just as excited as I am to meet my little girl! (*Decided to do it before she was born since flu season is coming up and I don't want to play "Pass the Baby" at a get-together.)
Now I'm off to take a nap. Just thinking about all we have left to do makes me sleepy!
