I cannot believe I am in the home stretch of this pregnancy. Time has completely flown by, I barely remember not having this huge baby bump! In a few short weeks we will meet our boy!!! His room is coming together very nicely and we are just waiting on a few more pieces of furniture to arrive. I will update pictures of his room as soon as everything is ready. I have been experiencing awful back pain this week and am getting very uncomfortable, which at 36 weeks is to be expected. I have also had a few Braxton-Hicks contractions which are NOT fun! At my doctor's appointment yesterday, Brad kept singing "The Final Countdown"! That song always reminds me of Gob from one of our favorite shows, Arrested Development. Other than that, all is well.
I was able to pick out a new ring and it came in today. Thankfully I will not be without a wedding ring when our child is born. I have 2 baby showers, one on Saturday and one on Monday. If I can make it through this weekend, I will be on the downhill slide. I will be packing my hospital bags this weekend, washing the outfit we bought to bring Bode home in and finishing up last minute "nesting" items. Should be a busy, but fun weekend. I wanted a new outfit for my shower that's tomorrow so I headed to A Pea in the Pod. (love that store!) Luckily for Brad, I did not find anything I had hoped for. :) So the search shall continue this evening after Avery's talent show. When I got to my car as I was leaving the mall, I realized the truck that parked next to me was uber close. As I got closer to my car, I realized I could not even walk to my driver side door. How do you expect a normal person to get in their car that close, let alone a 9 month prego! I had no clue what to do. I would normally just crawl over the passenger seat, but no way with this belly and my back hurting was that about to happen. I started looking up mall security's phone number on my iphone when I realized someone was waiting on my parking spot. I could not see who was in the truck waiting. I raised my hands and pointed to the other truck that I could not get to my door and also pointed to my belly. (Like it goes unnoticed!) This nice guy got out of his truck and asked if I needed help. I of course said YES! He attempted first to get to my driver side with no luck either. This is when driving a standard comes in handy. He was able to roll my car out from the passenger side as I kept watch on the driver side. I thanked him a million times. It is so nice to know there are still good people in the world willing to help others. I hope karma gets the truck's owner though! :) Upon returning to work I promptly ordered these from Vistaprint, hopefully I will not have to use them too often.
