40 weeks - due date!

I don't really need to write a post...
this webpage sums it all up:
haveyouhadthatbabyyet.com

yup.
...today is my due date.
and yes, my uterus is still occupied.

seriously though, life is good - I'm just ready to meet our sweet girl. working from home has been a huge blessing, my sweet husband has been so supportive and attentive, my family and friends have been great, overall I've been feeling pretty good (other than the whole not sleeping and feeling huge thing) not to mention - I have the most loveable and cuddly puppy ever (who is cuddled up to me as I sit and write this).

so no complaints here - just ready and excited for our sweet girl to be here to join the party.

we've been trying all sorts of things to try and "help" bring her along (like walking 2 miles a day pretty much every day, evening primrose, red raspberry leaf tea, spicy foods and much much more)... apparently, she's not phased.

I should also add just so people aren't on pins and needles waiting for it (because clearly, I'm that important, hah... right - kidding) - I will not be sharing our birth story when Sweet P makes her grand appearance. I just feel it's one of those things that I want to be "mine" (well, along with DJ's)... I don't think there's one right way to bring a baby into this world and I feel that whatever choices you make during the process should be yours and yours alone (along with the medical team helping bring your little life into the world).  Even though I do have a fairly public blog I'm pretty private when it comes to things like this and don't really want my nitty-gritty birth details google-able... and let's be real, most of you really probably don't want to know.

So, with that being said - get ready for picture overload when our sweet girl comes because clearly I have no problem sharing pictures of sweet babies! On that note, here are some pictures of our [quite possibly] last week as a family of three...

taking advantage of "guilt-free calories" for one last week...

walking on the treadmill...

walking at the lake...

 cuddling on the couch and relaxing....

...and nesting, nesting, nesting - I feel like all the finishing touches on everything are finally done!

so that's that!
40 weeks down - ZERO to go!
...so ready to meet our sweet girl!

According to my mom, I was two weeks late. The doc scheduled to induce her on the 13th and on the evening of the 12th, she went into labor. I was born on the 13th anyway. Sweet P will come when she's good and ready. :)
