Front door sign

I saw a really cute sign on Pinterest.  And I knew that I could, or my bestie could create this sign for me.  So I bought a wooden plaque...

Stained it, and came up with the font I wanted to use.  And Leslie used her handy Silhouette machine to cut out the saying, and a decorative border! Once the vinyl was in place and rubbed on good I put a coat (or four) of Modge Podge on it so it was "weather proof"

I can't wait to hang it on my front door!!!

Week 38!

As I get closer to my due date, and could technically deliver any day now...most babies are born between week 38 and week 40, although a first time mom, like me, can go over 41 weeks

Week 37! I'm pre-term...

If I were to go into labor after today the dr's would not stop it!!  That being said, hubbs has asked that I NOT post it on social media that we are headed to the hospital, pushing etc until much later.  I respect his feelings, so I will have him, and our labor coach, help me keep track of a timeline of events so I can document it later!  As I've said in my post last week, we are going to keep visitors to a minimum at first...

Week 36! 9 months...

Well I can no longer fly on an airplane...which is quite alright with me.  We are also not planning any trips far away.  Baby Fish was still head down as of yesterday, and may be engaged at this point, and once that happens there is no turning for her!  Movements will be less because she is waaaay out of room.  Average babies are right around 6 lbs now, and she would be considered pre-term if she were to be born now.

But it is my circus! And it's my monkey!

With Baby Fish's debut about a month away I just wanted to take a moment and blog about something that has been on my mind for most of my pregnancy.  My due date...and everything that comes after.

Week 35!

Ah the home stretch, 5 short weeks left to go (ish)!  Guppy is around 5.5 lbs now and is about as long as she's going to get, which is great as she is totally scrunched up in my belly and enjoys kicking and pushing on my ribs.  Half of my belly button has "popped" out although over all it's still an innie...which is really funny to see especially when I laugh because it pops more!  My little girl is head down, and we have entered the home stretch!
