Procrastination Station

Well, there's nothing like waiting until you're 8 months pregnant to start fixing up your house, right? My husband met with some painters and we found out last week that they could come in and do the work this week. We said yes, of course, and they have been doing sheet rock repair and painting all week. We have been staying at our friend's house since all of our stuff was packed away and moved over the bedrooms and the paint fumes aren't my idea of a great potpourri. After that is done, it's off to I.KEA for new shelving and we call another company to put new carpet in the baby's room. Whew! Are you tired, yet? I am! I'm just glad it's getting done. I was starting to prepare myself for the possibility that the room would not be ready in time for the baby.

Our baby shower is this Saturday and we are really looking forward to it. Three good friends are throwing it for us and I appreciate so much what they are doing. It really means a lot. As I said before, it's going to be more like a regular party with lots of food, beer, wine and just hanging out and catching up with people. No games will be played and if people would rather not watch me open gifts, that is just fine with me.

We had our 32 week appointment today with an ultrasound - yay! The baby looks great and everything looked healthy and normal. He was measuring at 33 weeks and 1 day and weighs 4 lbs, 9 oz. They adjusted my due date slightly to Feb. 25th, possibly, because of his size. He's almost 5 lbs! He's going to be a big boy, I guess. He is still breech, which didn't worry Dr. T since 50% of babies are breech at this stage. He also had his foot in front of his face so we were poking at him so that he would move it and she technician was able to get a picture of most of his face. It looks like he is going to take after my husband! Anyway, here he is:

You can see his little toes in front of his left eye and his hand up above. He's running out of room! It was great seeing him and now I really can't wait to see him in person.

Cibele had a great scan this week - go over and congratulate her!

That is terrific! I don't get another ultrasound, but I really wish I did. I feel like mine would be measuring ahead, too and I would like to be prepared.

We're just getting around to getting the house fixed up, too. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! We did the carpet last weekend and we'll do painting this weekend. I know backwards, but when hubby does it you have to do it the way he wants.
