I love my son!
Outside My Window... my annual flowers that I planted just 2 weeks ago are thriving!
I am thinking. . . of how long I have before Daniel decides to come out. I have irregular cramping/belly discomfort and tightening. Braxton Hicks?
I am thankful for. . . my labor support partner. I am not alone.
From the kitchen. . . spicy braised beef. Crock pot recipes are awesome! My husband's belly is satisfied!
I am wearing. . . my blue VS nightgown.
I am going. . . to (try to) sleep soon.
I am reading. . . Hail, Holy Queen: The Mother of God in the Word of God by Scott Hahn.
I am hoping. . . to have a restful sleep tonight w/ less awakenings. I get up every 2-3 hours now to use the bathroom and also to move around. There's no comfy spot anymore. It also takes me 20-30 minutes before I go back to sleep. I stayed up for an hour last night, read and ate actually because I could not go back to sleep.
I am hearing. . . the soft hum of the AC. It's quiet in the house. My hubby is studying.
Around the house. . . the pack and play is all assembled (thanks to Heather's help!); the stroller is ready; the car seat and base are in Derrick's car; my hospital bag is packed.
One of my favorite things. . . laying out. I bust out my preggy belly before the stretch marks appear.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .
This is Belly Week #... 37. Daniel is full term!
