31 days and counting..

One month until the baby is here!! So crazy to think. I had a Dr. appointment on tuesday, everything's still going good. I'm measuring perfect and all seems well. My feet are still swelling like mad, and I'm still getting migraines. :(
I just keep checking my blood pressure to make sure I'm ok. Lately if I don't eat in a couple hours I get SOO shakey, lightheaded, sweaty, and hot. So I just gotta keep up on that. I am definately to the point of being DONE! I feel so huge and swollen and nothing fits me right now and my hips and pubic bone hurt all the time. In the evening I am so stiff. But one good thing is Rob's gotten to feel the baby move a ton lately. He sticks his foot or butt out a ton and it amazes Rob. Rob also will pull me to him and kiss my stomach, its so cute. I'm so excited and so freaked out at the same time. We have the car seat in the car and my bag is pretty much packed. I just wonder how my cats are going to handle this! :P I still don't know what I'm going to do after my maternity leave, I have to work, but don't want my baby in day care. I'm just praying that something works out. Or maybe I'll have to change jobs. Thats the LAST thing I want to do! My job pays well and I enjoy it, no other job will pay as good right now. Too bad Rob doesn't make double his pay!
My next Dr. appointment is next wednesday, I guess we'll see how that goes. I'll be 36 weeks, maybe they'll start checking me?

The end is no fun sometimes - but it will all be over soon. Here is to hoping that is goes by quickly for you or that he comes a little early ;) I can't wait to see pics of the little guy!

It is slow towards the end but soooo worth it! Maybe I can be your babysitter when you go back to work! ;)

You're getting so close!! It does get really uncomfortable towards the end, but you'll make it! I know it's tough to think about, but it will all work out when you have to go back to work. I have to go back and it's really sad, but everything seems to be falling into place. I'm sure it will be the same for you!

I wish I could say that I knew what you were going through - but my babies all come 4-5 weeks early! Good luck with everything. Keep us updated!
