Can't believe it's been this long

I really didn't mean to neglect the blog for the last few weeks. We were nesting like crazy around here, which meant cleaning EVERYTHING!! And moving furniture, putting away things from the baby shower, and just getting things ready so that when she finally makes her appearance, I won't be busting butt to clean on top of taking care of her at least for the first few days.

As of tomorrow, I have 2 weeks left. If I go full to the end of the 2 weeks I think my fiance might end up moving out until I have her. Talk about cranky. I can't get comfy no matter how hard I try, she's moving all the time, and for the last week almost I've had those lovely Braxton-Hicks contractions every night after dinner for anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes.

On a good note, I do believe that she is working her way to not being breech. Either that or she's still doing summersalts. Which would explain a lot since it feels like there's just no room in there for her.

Side note: Bribing a baby in utero doesn't work. She just kicks me to tell me that while she heard, she doesn't care whether or not I can bend or get out of the car.

Who knew??

That just walking would take so much out of me that I'd need a nap after walking from the couch to the kitchen.

Who knew that just getting up off the couch is damn near an Olympic event??

I'm tired. All the time. Cramps, allergies, and heartburn keep me up all night. Or at least until about 2 am. But now that the older ones are back in school(i.e. more work for me), I'm getting up at 5:20. Three hours of decent sleep when you feel about 100 weeks pregnant just doesn't cut it.

And yesterday, which was their first day of school...HOTTEST day here all summer!!! I was in tears in the car waiting to pick them up just because I was so uncomfortable. Can't breathe cuz my nose is screwed from my allergies, can't breathe cuz the air outside was so hot, and my clothes looked like I had gone swimming in them.

Man I can't wait for this pregnancy to be over so I can get back to doing more on this blog than the venting that seems to be all that comes right now.

On a good note(see, there was one) we saw the doc yesterday and she said everything looks good. Going to her office for the NST twice a week, and seeing her every Monday. Only5 appointments to go!!!!
