tick tock

 early morning sunrise
early morning bump, 40.4 weeks

Here we are.  Still waiting on this baby to tell us when she is ready.  My midwife gave me good checkup yesterday.  Baby is healthy, happy, and doing her thing.  I'm showing some promising signs and trying everything in the kickstart labor book.  At this point it is all a mental game.  I feel great physically but it is hard not only asking yourself every minute of the day if this could be IT as well as everyone you love asking the same question.  

I had a light sleep and woke up hungry at 4:30 a.m.  At least I got to see the sunrise this morning before drifting back to sleep.  Andrew and my mom are keeping me busy and entertained, but they are jumping out of their skin excited too.

I just can't wait to meet her face to face.

Okay.  I lied and said I would spare you the photo of my belly burn.  It's not as bad after a few days of healing.  (do you know that putting raw honey on burns is a great way to sooth and heal?  now you do.)

Here is my bare belly at almost 40 weeks.  I've been shy to post a pic of my belly without covering but after growing this thing for the past 9 months, I have to say I'm quite proud of it.  :)  

I still can't really wrap my head around the fact that there is a baby inside of there.  Tomorrow is my estimated due date.  Emphasis on the estimated.  I'm not putting too much stock into the date.  I keep telling myself over and over that she is going to pick the day that is perfect for her and gearing up mentally for another week.  Again, there is this mixture of wanting her to come and equally wanting her to stay put.  

My mom comes into town today and that makes us very happy.  Maybe if I ask nicely, she will make a peanut butter pie.  

xoxo Happy Friday!

lover's day


How was your lover's day?

Judging from my Facebook & twitter feed everyone seemed to have been sufficiently spoiled.  The love cats at the Kingdom of Traiylor don't really make a big deal over Valentine's Day but we did get to spend the day together on the farm and that was a present enough for the both of us.

A V-Day baby would have been nice but this gal seems to be content to stay put for now.  This week has been incredibly relaxing and I've really enjoyed my time at home without the hustle and bustle of going to and from work.  I've been sleeping in, taking naps, and cleaning here and there.  I've also been nursing a burn on my belly.  Note to self:  baking + bare belly= dangerous .  I'll spare you the photos.

My sausage fingers are getting tired so I shall retire for the night.

Baby, maybe, tomorrow?

belly, 39 weeks

Craft night at the Crummetts

It's amazing what you can talk your partner into doing when you are this large and pregnant.

the last day

I'm sitting here in the last 30 minutes of my out-of-home working life.

I know cat!  That's how I feel too!

It has hit me and then not hit me at all.  I guess I just feel like I am moving from one job to another.  After I get this whole having a baby thing under control (ever?) my work will pick up on the farm and I will be working there part time and taking care of the babe. 

We've been visualizing this set up for a long time and it is crazy to think that it is all falling into place.  I'm sure there will be a lot of growing pains but I can't tell you how exciting this is for me and Andrew.  (yes I can, I'm telling you now)

A leap of faith.

Jump and the net will catch you.

Reach for the stars.....

Enough of that.  We're doing it and I'm stoked!

tiny shirt, big belly

38 weeks

So this happened every time I stood up today.

Not at all work appropriate.  The maternity band thing attached to these pants made my belly itch like a mother so I had to fold it down, and my maternity shirt is not exactly doing its stretching job anymore, so this was the end result.  I adjusted things to make it all PG rated but it was just all a mess.

To be honest, I could have cared less what I rolled myself into this morning.  I am tired.  We stayed up and watched the Super Bowl and didn't get to bed until late.  Okay, I didn't really watch the game as much as I ate dip and chocolate chip cookies and then tried to figure out if I was having braxton hicks contractions or I was just over-stuffed.  

sleep.  i need sleep!
