I've officially reached 37 weeks... the baby is safe to come any time, but I'm not ready! ;) The due date is May 27th - which is the same day as graduation at the high school Usually that means I don't see Chris at all. Plus this year his baby sister is going to be graduating. Bad day to go into labor.
Then Chris needs to go in on the 28th to turn in his keys and clear out any stuff from his classroom. So I've been ordering the baby not to appear before the 29th. ;) Thankfully it's listening so far, I haven't had a single Braxton-Hicks contraction or feel like the baby's dropped.
The baby actually has a lot of room still, only a handful of times has it actually kicked near my ribs. I have no trouble breathing still, so it's staying clear of my lungs too. Not exactly like I'm trying to run marathons either. In this picture, I'm totally sucking my tummy in. :P
It makes me look bustier! :D I managed to break 2 bras in 2 weeks. One's underwire snapped in half. The other bra's underwire popped through the fabric and tried to take my arm off. I was so annoyed about that. So I caved and bought 2 new bras and had to go up in a cup size. I still haven't bought any nursing bras either - I told you I wasn't ready for the baby to come! :P
Then I like to tell Chris my volcano story.
"See my belly button? It's the top of the volcano. And it exploded and all the red ripples are hot lava trickling down my tummy..." But I actually stopped feeling like I was splitting into two once I took up my aunt's suggestion of rubbing Vitamin E oil on my tummy.
Chris is going to be hauling me around tomorrow to get the last minute baby stuff we need. Like a tarp for the birthing pool, a hose to fill it up, 2 gallon ziplock baggies, and more stuff that I can't remember. My brain is a sieve these days. :)
