38 weeks tomorrow

Big Baby Belly!
It's crazy that I only have 15 days to go until my due date. When I first got pregnant, people kept saying it goes by faster that you know, I didn't believe now and now here I am with only two weeks to go. I am so grateful that time has gone by as fast as it has, especially with this deployment. Soon I will have my baby girl and my hubby here. I am so excited for everything December will bring. I will be so glad when I can roll over in the morning and have Mike right there next to me and baby Evelyn there in her bassinet. I'm going to be so happy when I don't have a baby crushing my pelvis though.

37 weeks!

21 days until my due date! I am so excited that it's so close. Whenever baby Evelyn is ready, i'm ready. I got to talk to Mike without the phone crapping out. Life is good!

gah I'm in such a funk!

all I want is Mike home... NOW! I am so tired of broken up crappy phone calls where he can't hear me, and always keeping my phone on me for fear of I'll miss his call or IM's. I just want to be able to talk to him again face to face. It would be so good to just be able to roll over and have him there. What i wouldn't give to just be able to have him here. I know r&r is so close, but today, I just want him back. Stupid pregnancy hormones!
Only 23 days until my due date. Any time now baby evelyn could be here.

36 w 3d

I have been sleeping worse and worse. My hips and back hurt and I am so ready not to be pregnant and to meet baby Evelyn. Oh goodness, I am always tired and I'm hungry so much of the time. Yesterday was a big errand day. I'm mailing out Christmas cards later on. I think poor Evelyn is getting all kinds of cramped in there because her movements aren't as big these days.

36 week appointment

I had my 36 week appointment. I gained 4lbs. My blood pressure was normal. I got my group b strep done. I filled out all my forms for labor and delivery. I got to tour labor and delivery and the mother baby unit. The rooms are actually really nice. I'm kinda nervous about giving birth, but I'll get through it. I can't believe how real it all is.

After I woke up this morning, I tried to eat breakfast and I ended up puking everywhere. I'm so close, yet so far from having her here. 32 days or so. I am just so tired of being pregnant, but It'll be worth it when I meet the baby girl.

whoot! 5 weeks to go

So close yet so far from being done. I'm excited to get to meet her in a few weeks, but the bigger she gets,the more uncomfortable it is to have her rolling around. I'm glad she's active though. I really cannot wait to meet baby Evelyn.

Is civility dead?

Very interesting on the today show today. What happened to please and thank you? I've often wondered this. When did we become so busy as a society that we couldn't say hello or please and thank you? They say manners start with their parents. It really makes me think about how we are going to raise baby Evelyn. I don't want her to ever forget that life isn't just handed to you and to be thankful for everything. I am thankful for every day I get and everything in my life that makes me who I am.

dear random people

oh and dear random people, please stop commenting on my coffee consumption and blaming my kid's hyper activity on it. I only drink the allowed amount and only in the morning so bug off! She's most hyper during the day, not in the morning, so keep your comments to yourself. She's my kid!

pictures from last night

Clearly, I am huge! The other 3 are from last night.
