The ripe cervix

I feel like a piece of fruit! On Thursday I went to the doctor for my 36 week appointment and I was dilated to a 1 1/2 and 60% effaced. As I sat up he said  "Good job! I would not expect this from a first time mommy. We call this cervix ripening. Make sure you bags is packed baby could come any day now or 4 weeks from now...."

Ahhh all I could picture was a over ripe banana. And then the panic set in... wait she can come any day,  I know I bitch constantly about being pregnant, but I am not ready. My list are not complete! I don't have BIG girl panties I cant really wear a G-string home from the hospital, I don't have nursing bras, I don"t have her swing, Jonny need to put her dresser and the glider together, I haven't washed her clothes, her room is not perfect. I need to clean the master bathroom, vacuum and mop. PANIC TOTAL PANIC!

On Friday after no sleep because my OCD or Donnie-isms had kept me up all night, I left work early did a little shopping and spent the weekend doing laundry and cleaning and now I feel ready. Actually more then ready.... now I just want her to come so we can meet her. Well maybe she can stay in there for a week or two more, I am sure there are some additional things I could get reorganizing the linen closest. Oh crap I am nesting again!

Words with Friends is like CRACK...

but more addictive.

Seriously...... Words with Friends is ruining my life. I have been neglecting this little blog of mine, losing sleep, wasting time at work... It really has become an addiction. I am doing it with my husband, my friends and random strangers. Does anyone else see a problem with this?! I keep telling myself this is the last game, but I can't stop! I think I need to start working a 12 step program or at the very least give it up and start the grieving process. The first in both of these plans is denial, right?

Ok good, then I don't have a problem.

Between my addiction to Words and "nesting" I have not blogged in years... months... or maybe it is just weeks! So let me catch my two loyal followers up.

As mentioned above I have been "nesting". I like to call it Saturday fun... but whatever! A little steam cleaning of the oven and dishwasher, washing all the walls in the house, wiping out and reorganizing the cupboards, adding shelves and organizational items to the laundry room, steaming the washer... the list goes on and on. I wanted to wash all the windows inside and out but Jon vetoed that. He never lets me have any fun!

I am 35 weeks... almost 36 weeks and this kiddo has dropped!
Mama got a new car. A 2011 Chevy Malibu with all the bells and whistles. I love it!

I did a little shopping for the baby...

We are getting really excited to meet this little girl.

I will try and be better about updating my blog over the next few weeks.... but for now can anyone help me think of a word using J U I D Z H or N?

47 days and counting

33 weeks

Is it strange that I am looking forward to giving birth???...

Sure I am excited to see this little girl, but what I am more excited about is to not be pregnant anymore! I know that giving birth is going to be painful and hard, but it will only last a day or so and honestly has to be better then the last 33 weeks.

The nausea is back.
The vomiting is back.
The pure lack of motivation to even comb my hair is back.
The hourly trips to the bathroom to pee a table spoon are annoying.
My boobs and belly seem to be growing by the minute.
My ribs are tender and bruised from her gymnastics.
I am FAT and BIG, which are four letter words in my vocabulary!
I am exhausted, but I can't sleep.

At least I still have my fashion sense....
