38 weeks....

Baby could come any time in the next month. We're pretty much ready, just need to get the car seat installed, although since we're planning a home birth, it's not likely to be used anytime soon. All the baby clothes are washed and put away. The diapers have been washed, folded and put away. The birth kit has been purchased, and all supplies are ready. Let's get this party started!

At our most recent visit with the midwives, all was perfectly normal. I've gained about 35 lbs (and I'm starting to feel it), blood pressure is low, baby has dropped and is head down. Nothing to report really... I'm feeling good, other than some occasional back pain when i sit for too long and a wee bit of foot swelling when i've been on them for too long. I think today was my last day at work (I may work one day next week)... and I'm glad. I'm ready to nap often and lie on the couch knitting endlessly.

So without further ado... here are the most recent pix... As you can see, these pjs no longer fit, but I'm not about to go out and buy new ones to wear for 3 weeks!



And a close up of the tattoo...


Remember... it used to look like this.....


WOW!!! I'm quite curious what it will look like when it's all over... Only time will tell!

And now... if you'd like to see the never ending cute that came in the mail this week....... Head over to KnittingZen

Okay, you are ridiculously cute. That green is absolutely MY color of green and those little britches? I'm done.

Hey there - you look amazing!!!! I am jealous you look so great at 38 weeks!

Question for ya - in your spare time these days could you drop me a line and chat with me about cloth diapers -- we are starting to debate them (neither of us sold either way) and wanted your expert advice/opinion!

Thanks!

That is an awesome picture of your tattoo. I have a tattoo on my belly (a little bit higher, around my belly button) and it survived just fine. I think it helps that I didn't have any stretch marks. I'm thinking of getting it touched up at some point though, just because I've had it for so long. You look great! (Thanks for the great landscaping pictures.)
