This Wednesday marks my 43rd day left of work. It's true, I have a countdown going. In essence, it is a countdown to the baby and not just days of work that I supposedly have left, but Justin is offended that I have counted down the days of work left and not actual days to the due date. Hello, that's what the baby in the floating bubble is for! He obviously doesn't read my blog. :)
I was also reminded last night by my other preggo friend Chellie who is a week ahead of me that this also marks single digit week countdown until this baby comes. I feel hyper-mode coming on.

Yesterday, I went to my parents house to feed the cat and get their mail and for some reason, I locked my keys in my car. Now, I have this key hidden somewhere in my purse that helps me out of such situations like that...but my purse was in my car. Luckily, Justin was able to come unlock my car and I got to enjoy a few moments of HGtv...but, not one of my finest moves.
The other day, I actually got out a calculator to divide 1000 by 200. Yep, got the same answer I should have in middle school. 5.
So either this baby is going to be really smart because it has taken what brains I do have...or we are both going to have to work realllly hard at learning not to be a dork.

So in my attempt to slow down, my resolutions to try towork on are the following:
1. Turn off the radio in the car and spend that time talking to God and just being...still. No extra noise needed.
2. Spend more time at home. Whether this means having friends over or just being there by myself or with Justin, that's just what I need.
3. Attempt to read my Bible more. This was proposed by Todd Wright in the first class and I have yet to follow through with this, but it's something I really need to work on.
Life is flying by - I want to stop and enjoy it for awhile :)

We also had a guy come to fix our freezer and he was a bit awkward...oh my, it was just one awkward thing after another. (Sorry to use awkward twice, it's been a long week).
All that to say is our home is now sparkling clean (well, carpet wise) and our freezer supposedly works and should make ice now. Hurrah!
No more playing around for me though. Since I've been Grumpy Gus this entire week, I need a serious nap.

This morning Caramel came and walked up my ribs. Then she proceeded to sit on my pillow and pretty much take over. No wonder sleep is getting harder to get. :)
I have started to have some swelling problems. But just in one ankle.
My doctor has asked me if I wanted to get a flu shot. I normally don't get these period, but I'm wondering if this time I should. I don't know what to think.
I am in love with the new season of the Biggest Loser. I love that show.

I scheduled the REST of my appointments yesterday. Time is flying by. At the beginning of pregnancy, it seemed to go SOOO slow. Now that I've hit the 3rd trimester mark, I think it's going to be a whirlwind.
Haylie kicked the doppler off yesterday, twice. The nurse kept calling her "Sassy Pants". I think that will probably fit pretty nicely if you take a look at her parents :) But her heartrate was 160 so she is doing great! I like hearing good reports.
So far I have gained...19 lbs! Between these last two visits I have packed it on!
We are off today for Arizona! Seeya in a few days.

What do you say when someone says "Man, you look tired." ? Is that their way of sympathizing with you? What if you aren't tired, you feel great and you had no idea that basically you looked like crap? On Air1 the other day they were talking about different sorts of backhanded compliments and they threw this one in there. Not sure it fits in the category. But that same day, someone told me how tired I looked. I couldn't come up with anything, so I just said it takes a lot of energy to grow a child. Not sure what else to say!
This weekend we are going to Arizona with the Hutchisons and Lovetts! I am so excited to get out of town with some good friends. This might be the last hurrah before baby time!
If you are going to be in town this weekend, you are invited to a baby shower for Julie Woodard. She is fairly new to the class, so it would be fantastic if there were lots of people there to support her and baby Grayson. It's on Sunday at Phyllis Allen's.
Katie is having her baby todayish!! I can't wait to meet baby Olivia!!!

After almost wetting our pants laughing at these animals, we went to Davis and checked out a few shops. Then we were finally able to check into our cute little cabin that we rented for the next two nights. Justin was able to go fishing for a bit, everyone was able to relax. It was great! We cooked out and had some really yummy steaks.
Sunday we were thinking about renting a boat and chilling on the lake for a hour or four, but we didn't reserve the boat in time and instead we went to the Chickasaw National Recreational Park. We found a great little swimming spot but that water was so cold I think all of our lips were blue after 2 seconds! Eli really enjoyed it though so after lunch we went and found another stream to dip our feet in.
That night we went out to dinner and then back to the cabin for smores! My sister is a genius and brought Reese's AND Hershey's...the Reese's smores were DIVINE!
Ahh family pic in front of the cabin before galavanting off to find Stratford peaches and a catfish lunch. Aren't we cute.

What's the best car seat? (Infant and when they are older?) Can it fit into a smaller car? I've read so many reviews in the last few days that I'm just going crazy. I don't know who to believe.
Who is a good pediatrician? (Who has privileges at Mercy...)
What is your favorite item that you've received/bought that you just can't imagine doing without?
Is there anything else I need to know when buying/registering?
