I believe today marks 36 weeks of pregnancy…

Now I can officially deliver at home if I go into labor, although early labor is unlikely seeing as though the last two baked until 42 weeks!

Now I can start worrying about the amount of unfinished projects left on my “nesting list”.

Now I can start taking the Red Raspberry Leaf Combo which strengthens and prepares the uterus.

Now I can dream about sleeping on my back again as the day is in the more foreseeable future.

Now I can have the privilege of visiting the bathroom at least once an hour.

Now I can actually see the outline of feet move across my upper abdomen.

Now I can eat that third helping of dinner out of actual hunger and not indulgence.

Now I can wait and pray and try to decide on a name.

For soon I will be holding this little guy and I won’t even care about the laundry piles or the unfinished paint job or that the flower box under the front window is still empty…just cuddling and nursing and resting. Soon. Soon. Soon.

    Wow! Soon, indeed! How exciting, makes me feel like I still have a long road ahead of me, but I suppose it will zip on by with the busy days. I hope you can enjoy the last few weeks of the pregnancy and prepare all you need for this new Plew. Can’t wait to see him, and find out his name.
    I will be praying for a safe, peaceful delivery and a healthy, happy little guy.

    Oops, sorry ’bout that, Annie. August is very soon! Bummer, we’ll be down in SD the last weekend in August and wanted to visit you and your parish. Maybe you’ll be back by then….or still hanging around for that matter :)
