Week 37, can you believe it? At the end of this week I'll officially be full-term. But however, I can't give Kara the green light to come just yet. I have a friends' baby shower on Saturday, breastfeeding class on Sunday, and a meeting I HAVE to go to on Wednesday. Plus Eric may need to travel next week for 2 days. So, next Friday she will have the go ahead to come anytime she wants-and hopefully not too late!! Which means I plan to begin my walking program next week to hopefully settle her down and ready to go!! I'm also hoping it will help prep me for a quick and easy labor (hey, a girl can dream right?)
I'm shocked that its nearly here and so antsy at the same time!! We put the car seat base in today and I picked up a few more items we needed. Super exciting!! I wanted to leave the carseat into the car, but Eric pointed out that it might not be a good idea as I may find some people trying to break into my car if I was in the store or something if they mistook the carseat in the car as one that had been forgotten and was carrying an infant. He brings up a valid point. So, it's back in the nursery.
Hospital bag is packed. Just need to put it into the car. Have a list on top of it of any other last minute items.
I've fallen in love with my crockpot We've been making a ton of meals in it lately, and its become a near permanent appliance in my kitchen. I think its time to begin to look into some new crockpot recipes that could be frozen ahead of time. I think these would be perfect for days where I just wont have a ton of time to cook. I'd love to be able to fill my freezer with items that are quick and easy-but not full of preservatives and weird ingredients that I can't pronounce!
So over the next few days I plan to occupy myself by creating some crock pot frozen meals. I'm hoping to keep them simple, practical, and healthy! Wish me luck! And of course, i will share them here when I am done!
Today I am 35 weeks pregnant....which means, only 35 DAYS to go...yikes!! Where has the time gone? I can't wait to meet her....but I'm also petrified at the same time!
