33 Weeks

It's incredibly hard to believe, but 2 days from now is where I was at when I delivered the boys!

I am in crazy nesting mode too. Poor Jer has been such a sport, calmly responding to my manic episodes and endless list making! He even hired a lady to come clean windows for me (probably out of fear that he'd return from work one day only to find me in labor on the front lawn, Windex in hand)! Truly though, what is it about preparing for baby that makes things that would otherwise NEVER get done suddenly seem so crucial? In my mind I know it's wild, yet the reality is that I still feel like I should scrub the blinds with a toothbrush! Oh, and buy massive amounts of meat. Even cuts of meat that I've never bought before. Like a Chuck Roast.

Pregnancy is strange.

So other thanthe radical hormones, all is good on the home front! My body is still not showing any signs of pre-term labor and at this point we're assuming that #3 will be a full-term, plump-er version of his/her brothers! We've tentatively set a delivery date of December 14th with Dr. Okun, however, she seems to think that it won't be necessary. Her words, not mine. Jer thinks the baby will come by the 4th. And I'm hoping for the second week in December. Just as babies like to do, though, I'm sure this little one will come in his/her own time, and not a moment before.

And that's okay. I still need time to figure out what to do with my Chuck Roast.

I love the comment about lying in the yard with a bottle of Windex in your hand... I never thought of scrubbing the blinds with a tooth brush, but I know exactly how you feel! Yup, pregnancy can be mighty strange. Thanks for the chuckles. Glad you're doing well.
