4 weeks to go…


Here I am last week at 35 weeks pregnant.  Since that picture was taken, my wedding ring has decided not to fit.  Tomorrow I’ll be 36 weeks – I guess he’s coming whether I’m ready or not!  We’re slowly getting there.  At least we have a bassinet and a car seat/stroller, so the basics are ready.  And we have a few other things from my work baby shower (thanks anyone who I work with that reads this blog!).

For the record, I’m in denial that I actually committed to 2 blog posts per week.  Both you know and I know that that’s never going to happen.  Well, maybe it will happen once I have this baby, because you have TONS of time on your hands when you have a newborn, right???

And a few have asked about my work plans before/after the baby.  I’ll work as long as I can before the baby comes, basically until I go into labor.  After, I’ll go on a leave for however long I feel like, and then I’ll go back to work for 30 days (to keep the insurance benefits), but after that it’s over.  My position won’t be available part-time, and I don’t want to work full-time with a new baby, so that’s that!  I wouldn’t have minded trying out part-time, but in a way it’s nice to just have the decision made for me.

That’s it for my mostly informational, barely entertaining blog post.  Hopefully more pics of what I’ve been up to in my next blog post!
