6 Weeks

I can't believe that's really all that's left. Well, that's provided Monkey decides to be born on time! I'm not sure what the chances of that happening are but we shall see. I'm hoping he comes on time however if he doesn't I'll be patient. If he comes early I'll probably freak out and so will hubby. I've been nesting like crazy in between feeling pretty gross. I'm just plain exhausted and don't get through the day without a nap. That actually scares me considering I have to be back at school in 4 weeks so I'm not sure how that's going to work.

Cleaning is being done on a manic level at our house. We both want everything spotless. Now, for hubby that's normal. He loves everything being neat and tidy. Anyone who's known me for any amount of time knows that's not my style. Look at my classroom, look at my bedroom as a kid, bedroom as an adult, my poor mission companions etc. You can just see I'm not an organized person. Well, I am organized but in my own way and I'm certainly not what anyone would describe as a clean freak. My husband asked what I'm doing just now and I told him what I'm writing. He started laughing. He says I'm almost the total opposite of a neat freak, but he loves the way I am right now. He came home the other day to me scrubbing the baseboards. I think he was smiling! I also spent part of this afternoon organizing Monkey's clothes. I have them all sorted and all we need is a dresser. I am so excited for all of this to happen but incredibly worried at the same time.

We went on our tour of the hospital tonight as well. Hubby was freaked out because it's a hospital but the tour helped I think. I feel pretty good now. I mean yeah it isn't going to be easy or a piece of cake giving birth however the tour made things much better for both of us.

This trimester has been a tough one. Monkey enjoys my ribs and kicking my stomach as well as my bladder and everything else. Again, another interesting thing to worry about when I go back to school since I'm in the bathroom almost all the time. Hubby jokes we should put a mattress in the bathroom for me. I figure drinking water is a good thing right now since food is not very appealing at the moment. Really disliking most food right now which is really sad cause I want to cook everything in sight. I have another appointment tomorrow bright and early. Is it a bad thing I'm excited for a nap as soon as I come home?

Here's a picture from my maternity shoot that I love!

Maternity Shoot

So the fact that we have a baby arriving in a few weeks is finally sinking in. I think I've been kinda in denial up until now. Well, not really denial but I haven't fully processed what it means to be pregnant. The more Monkey moves around in there, the crazier it gets. I'm so excited for Monkey to finally get here so we can play with him. Nervous? Yes I certainly am however I know that there's so much to look forward to! I think my hubby is excited as well. He's totally ready for it because he has yet to feel Monkey moving inside. Everytime Monkey starts moving and hubby puts his hands on my stomach, Monkey stops. It's like he's playing a game with daddy.

I'm feeling incredibly pregnant right now. Exhausted and big. The hardest part is not being used to all the weight. I will say it's different. I've spent the last few months not looking pregnant but then a friend of mine came over yesterday to take maternity pictures. And looking at them, yep I am pregnant! And that's a good thing. The best part? She even convinced my husband to get in the pictures! I was shocked that he went along with it. And very happy. It was a great time actually and I can't wait to get the pictures so that I can put them up! I don't want to post anything without her permission but if you go to her website: and check out her blog, there are pictures of me on there. And on Facebook as well. I'm 33 weeks on Tuesday which is incredible! I'm going to the doctor every two weeks now and it feels like I'm always there! But it's not bad cause at least we know Monkey is growing. Makes up for going to the bathroom every five minutes and getting stuck in bed and having leg cramps. Well, Monkey must know I'm writing about him because he's kicking and moving like mad. Which means I have heartburn again. Have a fabulous evening all.
