Home Stretch

Only one week until my baby is due. I like most women who are 39 weeks pregnant am so ready. I've been experiencing a ton of braxton hicks contractions with a painful contraction here and there but nothing consistent yet.

I spent my day trying to stay as busy as possible to keep my mind off the events that will be taking place in the next few weeks. This morning Josh and I went over to the Walmart on 82 ave. I had the baby's changing table sent to directly to the store. I saved $60 on shipping! Josh wished we would have brought our camera because we could have contributed to this web sight. Speaking of Walmart this is what happened at the Walmart in my hometown this week.

Tonight I was able to meet up with one of my high school friends. We went and had milkshakes at Moonstruck on NW 23rd.

I plan on staying put in my apartment for the rest of the weekend. I've been occupying myself with reading the Harry Potter books and watching the Harry Potter movies.

Stay tuned for any baby news!

Week 39

What a Day...

Josh and I were supposed to go in today and resign documents for the house we've been trying to purchase. We got a phone call this morning from or realtor informing us that the seller of the house past away. Our realtor said that in his 25 years he has never had this happen. Josh and I have determined that this house was never meant to be ours.

Work was real stressful today. I just don't feel like I'll ever be able to leave for a full 3 months. I'm trying to make my transition out go as smoothly as possible but things just keep popping up. The last thing I want to be thinking about while I'm on maternity leave in work!

On a happy note I went and sat in the 4 year old preschool today while they ate their snack. One of the girls in the class told me I had nice eyebrows....that seriously made my day!

I’m starting a short sale support group.

So as you know from my last post Josh and I were supposed to move into a house this week. Well it didn’t happen.

About 9 months ago shortly after finding out we were expecting Josh and I decided to start house hunting. We realized that to get the type of house we wanted in a neighborhood that we would want to live in purchasing a short sale may be the best option for us. We are now questioning that decision. This whole process has been an emotional roller coaster. We had already signed all the paper work and we were just waiting for the title when the sale pretty much fell through this week. As of right now the whole purchase is up in the air and we have no idea if we are ever going to get the house. It seems like this whole last month we’ve had the house dangled in front of us and just as we are about to grab it, it gets yanked away. We both made the decision that we need to just focus on the baby and not worry about the house. We are going to make ourselves at home in our little apartment and get ready for the little one that could be joining our family any day!

Another Baby Belly Series

Do you all remember this blog post from a few months back? I'm still kicking myself for not doing something similar during my pregnancy. What a cool way to share with your child what happened while they were still in your belly. Anyway the artist who created the wonderful photos is at it again. This time with he's taking photos for a friend and the outcome is just as beautiful and fun. You can check it out here!

In other news today's cravings consisted of chicken nuggets and orange juice. Where do these cravings come from and why can't I function until they are fulfilled?

Another Beautiful Weekend

Once again we are having a beautiful Saturday here in Portland. Josh and I were antsy this weekend. Not only are we due to have a baby in just three weeks we also just bought a house and are planning on moving this week. We both decided that we needed to get out and enjoy the weather today. We went for a very slow walk/hike in Washington Park. There were so many happy people and families out having fun in the park today!

37 weeks!

I promise to keep you all posted on how the move goes. I'll also post some pictures of our new little home real soon!
