38 Weeks

Yesterday was 38 weeks!!!  Less than two weeks left!  Yesterday was also my last day of work before maternity leave!  Which means that today was my first day off and it was wonderful!  I got the house straightened, the checkbook balanced, errands run and a lunch with Billie!  It was a great day!  I could get used to this stay-at-home housewife thing:)  Tomorrow I have a massage scheduled at the Baby Belly (it was a birthday gift from my MIL and SIL and I held off using it until I was completely uncomfortable and wanting a massage).  Friday I have a hair appointment, lunch with Jes, and my Doctor's appointment and ultrasound.  So this week is full but fun!  If we get all the way until next week, I might start getting bored because I have not one thing planned other than relaxing and reading blogs! :)

Here is my 38 week belly picture.
I'm pretty sure that I can't stretch anymore.  I think my stretch marks are getting their own stretch marks!  My belly is so unbelievably itchy that I can barely stand it...even with the lotion that my doctor recommended me use!  Other than that I feel pretty normal other than the usual aches and pains that a 38 week pregnant person feels.  Adalyn is still so active and I think she is ready to meet us!!!

AWWWWWWWWWWWW....and we're SO ready to meet her!!! I can't wait!

So excited that you're on maternity leave. HOW WONDERFUL, for you!! Just relax and ENJOY every minute alone before sweet Adalyn comes. And enjoy that massage tomorrow. Sounds heavenly!

Hugs :)

She will be here before you know!!! I told my husband the same thing that I could use to the housewife thing...he laughed at me! I'm already dreading going back and I don't go until January. You look great!

I'm with Jess... Adalyn come on out to play!! You are looking so cute but I can't even begin to imagine being that itchy :-( We're still waiting for my niece to deliver. I think they're inducing her on Friday if she doesn't go on her own before then.

How long will you have home once Adalyn arrives? Maternity leave here is 1 year. Employers by law have to hold the position for the Mom if she wants to return.

Enjoy your massage & haircut!! xo
