Last Days

For your enjoyment, and because it's a shame to not record funny stories, here's some pregnancy moments to remember:

In my office I usually roll my office chair easily from my computer to my file cabinet, a few feet away because it's a fast and fun way to move around my office. Last week I pushed off from my computer area, and the office chair didn't even make it halfway to filing cabinet...

I can sit in a chair, lean forward, and let my belly rest on the seat easily.

I haven't used the comforter on our bed in a week or two, and I usually don't even like a sheet. It's hot.

Today my coworker's preschooler looked at my belly with worried face and asked, "How does the baby get out?"

When I walk down the hallway at work I feel like a ship.

When I get up in the middle of the night, run into the door frames, and make the floor creak, I feel like Godzilla.

Not Counting Down

So, I don't know how many days it is until my due date. I'm trying not to count. I don't really believe in due dates, I think the baby is just as likely to come a little early or a little late.

I've been feeling mostly good, my main problem is being tired all the time and not able to move around very well. But Tommy is still patient with me while I do my slow walk to the back door to let him out.

Oh, good news - a new snow cone stand opened up next to Taco Bueno and it's better than Cajun Cones! I had three last week. :-) If anyone wants to bring me a snow cone while I'm in the hospital, remember to ask them to go easy on the syrup. I like any flavor that sounds like summertime.

Here's a picture of me over a week ago, and the crib and changing table (not quite set up yet).

Weeks 35 and 36

So, I came home Wednesday night (April 8) with a sore throat. As it got worse, I got madder. My shower was the next day and Curtis and I were going to leave town Friday to go to the Chet and Frances Graham family reunion - our last trip out of town. The sore throat / cold / cough didn't ruin any parties. I had an awesome shower and Curtis and I successfully traveled to East Texas and spent a few days sitting around and eating with no papers to grade, laundry or dishes. We did take the car seat on the trip, but thankfully Baby William stayed in my belly.

Here's some pictures from the shower (Thanks Hannah!)

Hm. took too long to load. I'm going to bed. Maybe the pictures will work out tomorrow.
