Belly Week 37

The Simple Woman Daybook
FOR TODAY (July 9th, 2009)

Bible verse for the day... And Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word." Luke 1:38

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. . .

  • I am still working. I have peds continuity clinic tomorrow and I am working at the Neuro office for my research.
  • Decorate the nursery (I have the baby's initials: DD like his papi, a lion --> Lion of Judah!)
  • Hang a few pictures and Daniel's quilt.
  • Go to the pool. Swim this Sat?

This is Belly Week #... 37. Daniel is full term!
Weight gain to date: 35 lbs. Baby's weight: 5 lbs 11 oz, 25th percentile
Femur length: 7 cm

Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .
The cutest baby on the block (before Daniel is born). His initials are DD.
