34 weeks, 3 days

Whoops, I missed a week! SB and I were both off last week and spent our time alternating between lazing around and finishing up some decorating projects. (mostly I did the lazing, and he did the projects).

Things are humming along. We still have zero progress on choosing a name. The Insider is still getting bigger and feels more and more like a cat trapped in my belly rather than a trout. We haven't had a doctor's appointment in quite a while (because of the holidays, the clinic wasn't open) but I've been healthy and things seem great so not worried. We go on Monday for a checkup.

I had a fall at work this week which was painful and hilarious, but not worrisome. Basically I missed a small half-step while backing up and fell backwards. My fall was broken by the corner of a door frame, which caught me on my shoulder blade and my butt, then I sort of slid to the floor. I thought it was pretty slap-stick style funny, but my co-workers didn't. Long story short, aside from bruising, everything is great. As if bruising is ever really that great when you're pregnant - as if my body isn't gargantuan enough and hauling it around isn't hard enough, but then add hauling it around trying to avoid aggravating painful bruises. But, it's been three days and it's slowly getting better.

I've started doing baby laundry today (bedding is first!) and am also compiling my list so I can pack a hospital bag. Obviously it's early, however 5 weeks seems like it's going to fly by and this would be one of those things I can see myself putting off. But it's kinda important. Considering the hospital doesn't supply any diapers. Could get messy if I forget the bag.

Sounds as though all is going swimmingly! Sorry about the fall but glad you are okay aside from some bruises!

Glad to hear you're okay and didn't hurt yourself more at work. Wow, almost 35 weeks pregnant already! Where does time go!?

Post a belly photo!

You'll find a name, I'm sure. Maybe you have to see the baby first to pick a name.

I usually change Quentin's diapers every 2-3 hours, (when wakes to feed) as they're usually full, so calculate enough diapers for your hospital stay. Hospital do have a few to give you if you run out or forget your bag and need some until you get your bag or to the pharmacy, but they're usually generic and not huggies or pampers.

Can't wait to hear all about your delivery. Could be before 40 weeks!
