28 is great

Earlier this week Jason and I celebrated my birthday with some yummy Thai food for dinner at Rain Thai Bistro.  I really wasn't even sure if I wanted to do anything because some days after work I am just so exhausted that the thought of venturing out again is too much.  But I am so glad we snuck in this birthday/date night just in case it's our last one for a little while without baby.  

We are finding that it is hard to talk about things other than her though; she consumes most of our thoughts and discussions these days.  Which is okay because we are just so anxious to meet her.  We have each been doing some reading in preparation for her arrival; Jason is reading The Happiest Baby on the Block and I am reading Breastfeeding Made Simple.  So far we are really enjoying both, we will have to see if they are helpful and worth it once she gets here.  39 weeks tomorrow!!

look at me now

                                  ^ 20 weeks                                                         ^ 23 weeks
                                  ^ 25 weeks                                                          ^28 weeks
                                  ^ 31 weeks                                                        ^ 34 weeks
                                ^ 36 weeks                                                             ^ 37 weeks

I tried to be a super pregnant lady and take a photo of my growing belly each week, but that didn't exactly happen.  oh well.  I think you get the gist in the photos I did take: I just keep getting bigger.  (see a few more here) Today I am actually 38 weeks and 3 days - no belly photo this week yet.  I can't help but laugh at seeing how my little black tank top has continued to stretch over me and begun to look oh so unflattering.  again, oh well.  These days I am in survival mode and feeling oh so...big.  Baby girl moves constantly and although I am always happy to feel her dancing around, it hurts like heck sometimes.  I swear one of these days her foot is going to come straight through my skin.  

We are down to the wire now with less than two weeks until my due date (March 1).  I keep telling her that she can come early if she wants, but no earlier than February 25th because my doctor will be out of town this week and I really want her to be the one that is there for the delivery.  I just love my doc.  But with all this moving around, I have a feeling she is anxious to get out of there.  Please just hold on baby girl.  one more week.
