Passing the time!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

So, the midwife checked me and said Siena could come any day now.  Or she might come in a week.  It's so weird not knowing if today is the day that will change your life forever!  Thankfully, I'm still quite comfortable and able to be active. I haven't hit that "just get OUT of me!" stage yet. 

Here's how I've been keeping busy:

  • I got a pretty lavender pedicure (would normally do it myself but I can barely shave my legs, let alone paint my toes)
  • Cleaned all the baseboards in the house.  
  • Watched many episodes of The Office on netflix while rocking on my yoga ball, trying to encourage the baby to get into anterior position (she's still sunny side up)
  • Cooked (all in one afternoon!) beef and pumpkin stew in the pressure cooker, a big pot of Vietnamese curry soup, and slowcooker chili to be frozen and reheated after the baby is born.  
  • Finished online traffic school and passed with flying colors :)
  • Started on my 2010 taxes. 
  • I've been writing 5 thank you notes for baby shower gifts each day so it doesn't get overwhelming.
  • And the most satisfying project of all?  It involves those felt Pesto heads I hinted to before.  A doggy head mobile! I thought it'd be cute to have my pups' googly eyes looking down on Siena while she sleeps.  Hopefully she isn't freaked out by them ;)
