How far along: 38 weeks
How big is baby: A pineapple (had it), leak (had it), rhubarb (which varies GREATLY in size) or pumpkin (no! no! no! Pumpkins are big!)
Best moment of the week: Without a doubt Friday’s baby shower. It was overwhelming in such a good way. I was expecting maybe a dozen people, a card and a gift card, but there were about 30 people popping in and out, and entire pack-n-play full of gifts. Plus, they had even arranged a ride home for me and all the gifts. I was beyond touched, and truly grateful to work with such great people (and they don’t even read this blog, so you know they must be great). Plus, (and these are unrelated), my treadmill and my piano were both delivered this week, so I finally feel like my house is complete.
Food cravings: Nothing really in particular.
Symptoms: General discomfort and a lot of exhaustion.
What I’m looking forward to: Being done work. I haven’t really had a “summer break,” so I really just want the opportunity to relax for a day or two. Of course, there is a lot that I have to get done too, but since Little Lima Bean is likely to be late, I think I can likely do both.
What I miss: Carrying things at waist height. Seriously, I went to help carry a few light things to the car when helping my parents move this past weekend, and I just couldn’t figure out how to physically carry it.
Husband perspective: There’s just a lot still to do. (yes, we’ve hit “exasperated” here)
