Well, so far another quiet weekend. I guess I can kiss those goodbye in another couple weeks. We're hoping she'll come early, because I'm just more and more uncomfortable. I'm 34 weeks, and just amazed. Seems like everything went faster than this last month. I'm just glad people aren't calling to find out if I had the baby yet. Actually that's not true. Steven's dad called the other night. And even though he said there was no reason for calling... I just know it's because he thinks I'd go and have the baby and Steven wouldn't call him. So hopefully he won't make a habit of it, and will remember that Steven promises to call him. Just like everyone else. As soon as she's out, everyone gets a phone call!

I can't believe how much snow we got. I didn't see poor Steven all day yesterday. I've been cooped up in this house for three days already. I want to get out and do something.I especially want to develop the film from the shower... we have some really funny pictures that I can't wait to see how they turned out. Unbelievable what people will do sometimes.I actually have everything in the nursery as ready as it can be so far. Everything is washed and put away except for some sheets and blankets. Waiting to finish shopping before I wash that stuff. This little girl could come any time now. And I really hope that Kim is right. She thinks I'm going to have her the last week in February. I'm ready for her now... so I hope she's listening when I tell her it's time to at least start *thinking* about coming out soon. Another few weeks and there will be no problems if she decides to. So here's hoping.

Well, baby shower is all over and done with, and I think we had a great time. We received lots of wonderful gifts, but unfortunately there is still another shopping trip in the making. There were a few things I needed that I didn't get. We had a good time, eating and playing games. I was happy to have everyone over to see the nursery and spend time since there won't be much of that once the baby gets here.I had pictures taken so as soon as I get the film developed, there will be pictures posted here, so everyone who couldn't make it can see what fun we had. I would have liked to get the film taken care of tomorrow, but with all this snow, not likely to happen.

Had another doctor's appointment today, and I'm telling you, I'll be so happy when I don't have to go see him anymore. It upsets me that there are always interns there, and we don't get a choice about seeing them. How can you build a relationship with someone who will ultimately hold your life and your baby's in their hands if you only see them for ten seconds at the end of the appointment! Not that anyone needs to listen to my griping anyways. They were even upset that I lost two pounds. Well of course I did. I have a terrible cold I'm just getting over. Your appetite just isn't the same when you're sick.Thankfully I'm almost done. 52 day according to this. I wonder what happens if I'm late though. Do I have to start counting negative days? Guess I worry enough as it is, don't worry about that.

Am getting very excited to see everyone at the shower on Saturday. I will try to have someone take pictures so I can put them up here afterward. I'm sorry that some people won't be able to make it... but I'm even more sorry that I'm limited in where I can travel now. I really can't go anywhere to see people. I'm far enough along now that I shouldn't travel too far from my Dr and my hospital. Can't believe I'm almost 33 weeks. And thank God I'm getting over my cold. Maybe the chicken soup I'm making for supper will help that even more.

Last night was so funny. Lately she's been getting the hiccups, and she can't stop, unfortunately Steven's never around when it happens. Well we were watching TV in bed, and I thought I had a muscle twitch... I reached down and realized she had them AGAIN! So I had him feel them. She usually stops moving when he puts his hand there, but she can't stop doing that, so he really got to feel her. It was so nice. Still feeling lousy... but I guess that's to be expected when you have a cold and are pregnant. I thought I'd luck out with all the vitamins he's got me taking... but lucky me, I got it again. That makes twice since I got pregnant. I guess there's nothing I can do but wait now.

Friday again... guess I kinda slacked off lately. Not feeling well. Picked up some kind of cold. I have a terrible cough and the only cough syrup I can take doesn't really help much. I guess at least I can take something so I can sleep a little bit.Getting more anxious about labor and delivery. I don't think the classes are helping, I think they're making me more nervous. I guess they have to tell you all the things that "could" go wrong so you'll know what to do... but honestly I'd rather just not know about all that stuff. It just makes me more worried. But I'll be a mom soon, so I guess worrying is my job.

Can't believe how much it snowed yesterday. However Steven was kind enough to take me to my Dr's Appointment, so I didn't have to cancel. He told me that I passed my glucose test, so I don't have Gestational Diabetes. And he also said that 99 out of 100 women are anemic at this point in pregnancy... but thankfully, I'm not. So whatever I'm doing, keep it up! Always good to hear good stuff, since I cringe when I step on the scale.Am looking forward to my shower immensely. I can't wait to have everyone here to see the nursery and just hang out with before I have the baby. I probably won't see many people after unless they come here. At least right away. I'm sure I'll want to stay home and rest for a while anyways.

Had a nice New Year's. Quiet. Just the way I like things now. And work is basically slowing down. I think by next week I'll only have three day work weeks. Of course I know that it's not all my fault. Lost a client yesterday morning, and today found out he passed away. So that's not helping things.Had a strange dream last night. Don't usually dream about having the baby... but I did last night. And labor was nothing at all, but I was surprised to see he was a BOY and he was like... toddler size! Amazing.... Guess it's nice to know stuff like that is only a dream. Of course, I guess the ultrasound tech could be wrong and we could have a boy. But here's to hoping she's right... We already have too much pink, and I'm sure it won't get any better when we have the shower.
