Tomorrow morning I have my weekly appointment and will find out how dilated I am.
No real stuff going on that makes me think labor is happening soon – none of the symptoms, not even any Braxton Hicks. Just tired and achy and antsy. Hip joints, back and knees are getting a bit sick of this state of pregnancy, but mentally I am okay if she sticks around a few more days or so.
House is almost complete. Supposedly the kitchen sink and counters will be installed tomorrow – this is the third date they have given us and it sucks to have a kitchen almost complete except for open drawers and exposed dishwasher and no water. Sigh.
They have completed one coat of paint in the nursery, just need a second coat, chair rail, install the fan light and clean up the wood floors and it will be complete.
Once it's finished I will take pictures; I just feel like right now it doesn't look great because there's pantry and kitchen stuff in the living room, a dozen cans of paint and our old fridge in the dining room, stacks of stuff awaiting furniture in the office, etc.
It's hard because I see so much I want to do and cannot do it because I am on bed rest. Each time I go downstairs I take a handful of plates and kitchen stuff; when I come upstairs I bring some laundry or books. But that's all I can do and I wake at 3am making lists of what needs to be accomplished before the baby arrives. 🙂
On the fashion front, it's pretty sad. I am down to very few items that fit me and are comfortable – my Old Navy ponte trousers are still a staple; I usually match them with some jersey or tee shirt style top from Gap or Old Navy. Though my blood pressure is under control, I still have swollen ankles and feet so I am living in slippers, Crocs or bare feet around the house and am… *GASP* leaving the house in the Crocs. I know! I hate myself for doing it, but I just don't have anything else left that still fits and I just can't stomach purchasing shoes now that may be the wrong size in a couple of weeks.
Hair is air dry except for the bangs to encourage the curl. Makeup is Philosophy's The Supernatural mineral foundation in Beige, The Clinique shadow duo in Like Mink, Cover Girl LashBlast mascara in Rich Black and either Clinique Long Wear lipstick in Beauty or Bare Escentuals Buxom lip gloss in Dolly. I keep these pieces in my purse because my dressing table is not put together and I keep my purse next to my bed for easy access.
Hope everyone is well and enjoying the holiday season!
