Hurry Up Baby Brooks!

Well, I am four days away from my due date which makes me 39 weeks and 2 days! I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow to see if we have made any progress. As of last week I wasn't dilated but of course that could change any minute - let's hope so. I am ready for him to hurry up and get here. Everything is ready, including Alex and me.

I haven't really started to feel nervous or anxious, but I will say, that as a Type A personality, it is VERY hard to have no control over when I will head to the hospital and deliver. Yes, those who know me well know that I am a control freak and this has been the hardest part the last week or so. I guess I just have to suck it up and deal with it!

Hopefully my next entry will be after Brooks Alexander has entered the world!
Love to all!

We Finished the Nursery!

Well, we finally finished the nursery! Everything is hung up and put away - now all we need is a baby. I just love the way it turned out. It is nice and cozy in there. Alex, me and the dogs spend time up there quite a bit just hanging out on the glider and laying on the shag rug. Nash has really taken to his new sleeping spot on the rug! I have a feeling he will be up there quite a bit!!!

I will be 38 weeks this week. I still feel really good. Brooks is still a busy boy. I really enjoy laying down and watching my belly do crazy rolls. It is an amazing feeling, and weird at the same time, to know that there is a living being inside of me getting ready to enter the world. It is truly amazing and I can't wait.

I definitely have more aches and pains now but I just tell myself that it is nothing like the aches and pains I felt after running a marathon (and what I am going to experience giving birth!!!)! I am, however, at the point where I am just ready to have the baby. I can't wait to be able to tie my shoes again normally (or to even FIT INTO my shoes)! I also forgot what thin ankles look like :o)

Life is good and I am looking forward to the next couple of weeks to see what kind of progress we make. Love to all!

35 Weeks!

I am 35 weeks along and still feeling great! I am popping out there but still fairly small for being so far along (but I am not complaining!). I definitely have cankles in the morning and later in the afternoon / night. It is very attractive. I also wake up with massive joint pain as my fingers look arthritic and curled under. It hurts but goes away within 30 minutes. No other complaints though! My mom and I still get up and walk about 5 1/2 miles 3 - 4 times a week. I will be visiting the doctor every week starting with my next appointment on September 10th. Wow, time is really flying by! Brooks is going to be here before we know it. I can't wait to meet him.
