36 Weeks

Not much new to report this week, which is good!  I had my 36 week check up yesterday, and he's still measuring as he should be and in the position he should be.  Let's hope he stays put like that until he's ready to make a move outward.  I start going to the doctor weekly now, and my due date is three weeks from Sunday.  Woo hoo!  I'm getting a lot of roly-poly movement at the top of my belly these days, and he occasionally has some hiccups, but for the most part he's an easy, low-maintenance tenant.

We had maternity pictures taken by a friend of mine from college last Thursday evening and we really lucked out on the weather.  We didn't do much this weekend, which was nice.  Chad ended up on an all day conference call for work Saturday, so I relaxed, read a lot, and hit the gym.  Sunday we hung up the baby's initials and shelves we stained in the nursery.  So that room is pretty much ready for its occupant.  My hospital bag is packed and all the major purchases are done. 

Last night we met another college friend of mine and her family for an early dinner, and we're planning on dinner with a high school friend and his family on Sunday.  Trying to see people while we can! 

I'm still really feeling great overall.  I'm sleeping well and getting around normally.  I never would have imagined 8 months would be like this, but I'll take it. 

Here's a picture from last Wednesday at work:

And here is a picture from tonight:

Lacy's back!
And for good measure, here is a picture of the felines who were getting some quality time while I read in bed on Saturday morning:

What is this "baby" thing you keep mentioning?


  1. Thanks for the Lacy pic - I missed her last week. You are lookin' darn good for having only a few weeks to go. You certainly don't take after your mother with respect to pregnancy weight gain!

  2. Norah, you continue to look absolutely wonderful at 8 months+! Exciting time - he'll be here soon. Wow! xxxoooxxxGrandma
