Almost time

Over the holiday weekend, we spent some time working on the house. Saturday night we went to Dave & Buster's to celebrate Kasie's birthday. You forget how much fun arcade games can be. We played racing games, Skee ball, etc. I even gave myself a work-out playing a full-size basketball shooting game. Let's just say "the belly" gets in the way of my jump shot. I also made Chris get in the photo booth, where they morph your pictures into a picture of your future child. It was pretty cute.

Sunday we went to Ikea looking for a TV stand for the new TV and whatever else we could find for the house. We bought a TV cabinet that ended up being too narrow for the DVD player and the other components. Oh well... I did get swollen feet from our long trip through Ikea.

Monday, one of the docs in our office invited people over for a pool party. It was nice getting together with everyone outside of the office. BUT... it wasn't a lot of fun watching everyone drink beer and swim, while my fat, sober butt sat poolside with her swollen cankles in the water. Yippee!

On a baby note...
panic mode has officially set in, as I realize our baby is coming any day now. While I am extremely excited, I just don't know how ready I am to put my entire life on hold. Things are busy at work, and I feel bad leaving them with extra work because of me. People at the hospital are becoming more and more suprised to see me in surgery, but I think it's great to continue suprising them. And other than a few hot spells when we have to wear lead aprons, it's been ok. I get really hot...really easily...I guess the hormones are going crazy. I feel fine overall. I have another OB appt tomorrow so I'll let you know how it goes.

I have to say that you have been one of the best expectant mothers that I have encountered. You should be very proud of yourself for your positive attitude.

I'll call you today to see how the ob doctor visit went.

Well, how did the "checking" go?! Hopefully less painful! Your little widget counter says only 10 days to go. That is insane!
