U know what they say about a dirty house before bringing home baby?

You know what I would absolutely love to do right now? Clean and organize! I can't think of anything better. OK, maybe I lie. Suntanning on a beach in Hawaii sounds a little more appealing, but cleaning comes in a close second. I am sure it's the so-called "nesting phase" of wanting to get everything done before BB arrives. If I were allowed I would definitely go through each room in this house and clean and organize everything from top to bottom, inside and out, and I would love it. It doesn't help that my house is NOT organized like it usually is and it is NOT clean like it normally is. Nor does it help that I have OCD and I am a neat freak and I crave perfection. Well, I guess I will just have to settle with looking at disarray and dust. Probably will need to get used to it any way - doesn't sound like cleaning will be a top priority when Peanut does get here. I will so rather be with our baby!

We had an OB appointment today. Pretty routine. Checked urine, blood pressure, weight, fundal height and baby's heartbeat. All was great. Still decided not to check for chlamydia or gonorrhea b/c of risk of bleeding. It was checked in Sept and was neg any way. My cervix was not even checked for dilatation and effacement for the same reason. My midwife said to stay on the contraction stopping meds until Tuesday when I have my u/s appointment. She also gave me her rule of thumb for when to call about being in labor ~ contractions every 5 minutes for a minute straight for an hour straight. The contractions have moved a lot already. Some are still in my upper belly, but a lot of them are lower. I know this is supposed to happen. They haven't yet effected my back or legs yet, nor are they as frequent or consistent as above. They are a bit more painful than a few weeks ago though. We also got a whole bunch of goodies from the OB. Another diaper bag, formula, breast pads, diaper cream, ice packs and an insulated bottle tote, diaper changing mat, paci. All stuff we had, but doesn't hurt to have more. Actually, we did not have any formula, so I guess it's good to have on hand, just in case.

I went into the doc's wearing comfy pants (kinda like PJ's) and a T shirt and Sean was like "See I told you at the beginning of the pregnancy that by the end you would be wearing pajamas in public, but you didn't believe me". I find this unfair. I don't have hardly a thing that will fit me anymore thank you very much. Plus, what's the point? I come back home to get right back in bed. Sheesh!

So, it was nice to spend most of the morning with my hubby. I even sat downstairs for a bit. Woo-hoo! He showed me our stroller. It's so nice. Judy brought me over a chicken philly and fries and now I am waiting for Kari and Aimee to come and see me. :O)

Is it Friday? I guess it is. Well, happy Friday. It's funny how it doesn't make a bit of difference to me right now.

Ugh i went crazy cleaning before baby so i know you're going nuts not able to! but hey....wouldn't be good for baby anyways right?

HAHA! no offense but you're at the end where nothing fits but pj pants! i HATED that time with clothes....want to buy stuff because nothing fits but don't want to waste the money. It's an annoying time, especially when i had to work and just stuff my sausage body into clothes :) Late term pregnancy is fun though. hehe

I guess it didn't help that I was expecting my grandma's house cleaner yesterday morning, which I was excited for, but she called in sick. Not sure when she will be coming now. :(

Well, at least my situation is accommodating for PJ's. Although if I was still working, it wouldn't have been too bad, since I wore scrubs, which are basically PJ's, too.
