I went in yesterday for my 35-week checkup. Amazing how fast time flies. As the nurse was checking my blood pressure, she said, "You do realize that anything is fair game now. At 35 weeks, if you went into labor, we wouldn't stop you." And then she proceeded to hand me pre-admittance papers and information on pain management and all the other decisions I'll have to make before the birth of the baby. I'm sure I looked slightly shocked...
YIKES! Here I am, blissfully thinking that I have 5-7 weeks left of pregnancy, and this nurse just popped my bubble of bliss. For the first time it really HIT me that this baby is coming - SOON! Now I know the chances of my delivering 5 weeks early is slim to none, but that nurse and her mischievous twinkle and grin really got me thinking...
Housing update: all our drywall is up, and we're working on the 2nd coat of mud. Consumer's is supposedly switching our power over sometime this week, so we will once again have power in every room (YAY!!)
finish mudding and then paint the walls & floors
finish up the bathroom (add the shower surround and hardware)
rig up our temporary kitchen (we still need a sink & a fridge!)
packing, packing and more packing!!!
I am not panicking...what good would that do anyway??? Waste my energy (already at a premium) and stress me out? I don't think so. My God knows exactly what He is doing!! I'm going to take one day at a time, and currently I'm counting down to my last day of work - July 7! (or, in the words of my lovely nurse Bev, "if you make it that long") Thanks, Bev.
