It’s hard to believe I’m writing a 38 weeks post!
How am I feeling? Great! From what everyone told me about the last few weeks of pregnancy, I expected to feel terrible. Don’t get me wrong, it’s tough to tie my shoes and sleeping is sometimes impossible. However, I feel great during the day. I was even able to walk a few miles outside in the sunshine today.
Purchases: I ordered a personalized blanket for baby W about a month back from an Etsy shop. It arrived in the mail last week, and it’s hidden away in my hospital bag. John and I were both pretty giddy seeing our son’s name spelled out.
Preparations: My hospital bag is pretty much packed, aside from a few things I still like to wear and want to bring along. Also, a carseat is installed and a rocking sleeper is set up in the basement.
Maternity/Paternity Leave: This is my last week of school until August. It’s really hard to believe. I met with my sub on Friday and she actually said she might be bored because I had prepared everything for her already. That made me feel a lot better about walking away, and I know the students will love her. John has lots of PTO built up, and he’ll take time when the baby arrives and hopefully a few days here and there while I’m off all summer.
Since I tend to post a pregnancy update every two weeks, it’s hard to know if there will be another before baby arrives. March is flying!
