I started these curtains with my Mom probably about a year-and-a-half ago. I kept putting off hemming them. Now they're finally done.

It helped to move the sewing machine out into the living area. It's funny how connected I am with John. I basically follow him around like a little puppy, or like Macy does to us.

Long walk

We took a nice long walk this afternoon. We walked to Starbucks and tried some new drinks. The one way walk is about 25 minutes. It feels good to be home and sit.

A little progress

I had a few Braxton-Hicks last evening. The closest together were 3 in 45 minutes, but the others were more along the lines of 30 minutes apart. We were hoping for more action overnight, but no such luck.

I guess I'm going to have to do my homework for this week. I thought I might be able to get out of it. Oh well. The quarter is almost over. Only seven days away from finals.

Here's the latest picture.


Game time

We had leftover pasta from Pizza Hut and brocolli. Now we're going to play our favorite computer game, Diablo II.

Next, dinner

So the movie was creepy and cruel. Kinda hard to watch. But the end was satisfying. Now, I think we'll have dinner.

Movie update

Okay, now we're watching Untraceable with Diane Lane.

Casino Royale was good. I like the new style. Watching the Brosnan Bond movies lately I've realized I'm bored with them. They're very cookie cutter and predictable. I'm looking forward to seeing the new Bond movie. We might go see it in the next few days.

Watching Casino Royale

We are watching Casino Royale on demand. I wanted to see it again before we see the next one.

Lots of sleep

I got up just before 11:00 today. It's nice to be able to sleep through the night. I'm taking advantage of it before the baby comes, and I only get 2-3 hours at a time.


41 weeks

We had another nonstress test today and everything looks fine. We scheduled another one for early next week.

It was very nice here today, so we worked out in the yard doing some fall clean-up. I was hoping the manual labor would help get things started. But not yet.

We're patiently waiting. I think it's harder on everyone else to wait. :)


Turkey Day

No change yet. We had a nice relaxing day playing video games and watching TV. For dinner, we had a special treat of asparagus.


Wow, people actually read this (besides my Mom)

I was told today that someone reads this besides my mother. Amazing! I usually just see comments from Mom so I figured she was the only one that visited. It encourages me to stay up to date.

I created an online baby pool a little over a week ago. (If you want to participate, send me an email or comment, and I'll send you an invitation. I don't want to post the link here.) My Dad made a guess and I enjoyed his comment. He said:

"I keep saying I'm not old enough to be grandpa. (Maybe I should stop saying it so she can be born.)"

Very cute! By the way, his guess was a girl. We still don't know the gender.

Also, the update is: no change. We didn't make any plans for Thanksgiving, and I have a feeling we're going to both feel a little homesick tomorrow. We don't even have a turkey, although I suggested to John we get a deli cooked roast chicken from Fred Meyer. Yum!


Nothing yet

My Mom called me this morning saying she had a gut feeling that I was in labor. But I wasn't. Sorry, Mom.

I've been busy working on homework and continuing the get the house ready. I think it's harder for family to wait than it is for me because I'm still trying to get stuff done.

It was suggested we start a project that can't be interrupted, then the baby will come. The project suggested was decorating a Christmas tree. I like the idea, but I need to clean up the living room first so there's room for the tree. It would be fun to have the tree up and all pretty when we came home from the hospital.


Nonstress test

We had an ultrasound and a nonstress test (NST) done today. Everything looks good, except the baby is a bit on the big side according to the doctor. She thinks it's between 9 and 9 1/2 pounds. She wants us to induce, but we've decided to hold off for now. We have another NST scheduled for Friday.

I feel good. When I stand up the baby feels so heavy in front. It must be getting close to time.


Baby's procrastinating

Like mother and father, our baby is procrastinating his/her arrival. Today is 40 weeks and 2 days. We're just waiting and waiting.

I'm going to post every day until the baby comes to help ease the anxiety of everyone who is waiting.


38 Weeks

We're almost there! I can hardly believe that by Thanksgiving we're going to have a little baby to take care of.


Less than 3 weeks

We're in countdown mode. We refinished the dresser this weekend, so I'll get to pack it with baby clothes this week. How exciting!
