Nesting and Resting at 38 weeks


I am 38 weeks pregnant and continue to vacillate between nesting and resting.  Feelings of “The baby’s coming soon… hurry, let’s clean, organize, and shop for final items” quickly turn into feelings of “Wow!  I’m exhausted and can barely move right now.”  Yes, my body continues to remind me that I will meet my baby soon. 

Last night we tried to wrap up our necessities shopping.  We bought a crib pad, crib sheet, diaper pail, bottles, a foam pad for bathing, and a simple yet cute “coming home” outfit.  Again, hopefully the baby is a girl, like the technician said, as the outfit is a pink cotton dress with attached flowers and diaper cover to match.  :-)

Yesterday was a productive day altogether, though, and we did get outside to work in the yard.  It was a BEAUTIFUL day – in the low 70s and just wonderful.  The kids and I started the work in the yard with some weeding, mowing of the lawn, watering of the garden, and cleaning up.  When hubby came home, he helped tie things up with his contribution of weed-whacking.

After we came home from dinner and shopping, we were rewarded by our trimmed yard.  It was very pleasant.  :-)

We are STILL finalizing Baby’s name.  We have it narrowed down to a few choices.  Maybe we’ll have to see Baby in order to make the final decision.
