So, yesterday was a pretty exciting Perogy day! (I didn’t want to be called any funny name like “preggers” or “prego” so my mom called me a perogy once but I’m happy to announce it didn’t stick 🙂 ) My mother and father in-law recently bought Andres and I our crib and we set it up yesterday. We had bought the bedding we wanted earlier on but along but had had just left it in the baby room along with some other stuff people have given us or things we had bought. Along with building the crib, we finally took stock of what we have so we will know what else to buy. Can you believe that it’s really only 5 more weeks and I’m due? Here is an updated picture of what I look like now at 35 weeks.
I don’t think I look a lot larger than I did at 30, but you can make your own decision! It’s amazing that it’s gone by so fast. I count myself as having had a very easy pregnancy much of the time and I tend to forget that I’m pregnant besides the fact that my stomach has grown. Anyways, our baby room is finally starting to look “babyish”! It is harder than I thought it would be to prepare for a little person when I don’t know the sex. I’m still very happy we decided to keep it a secret, but some things sure would be easier if we knew.
I am finishing work in just under two weeks and am then starting my maternity leave. I would probably have worked a bit longer but I do have a somewhat lengthy drive back and forth, and my doctor decided it might be safer to finish a little earlier than later.
People are starting to ask me if I’m getting “excited” and I feel like that is such a loaded question! What do you mean by excited? No, I’m not excited about labour and all the pain I am expecting to feel. Yes, I’m starting to get excited at the thought of being a parent for the first time and all my musings about what sort of parent I’ll be are beginning to feel more real than just thoughts and ideas. I get the sense sometimes that people just expect a yes answer but I don’t think you can answer that easily! That’s all on pregnancy for now!
