3 weeks or so to go!

here i am at week 37. i had several unusual results from my doctor's appointment yesterday that indicated that i have not been taking it as easy as i should. he strongly advised that i either stop going to work right away, or markedly decrease my time in the office (thats what the note says). so today, i stayed home and rested.

it was obviously pretty needed, i slept 11 hours (with bathroom breaks) and then did a little work from home, and then had a nap. i am going to go to work on Friday for a few hours to make sure all the loose ends are tied up there and then i'm going to begin my relaxing regime as i prepare for baby's arrival.

derek managed to come home at a good time so we had our last "official" date before baby arrives. we went to the Keg for my favorite steak, the baseball sirloin, yummm. it was a great date. i really enjoyed myself and our time together.

it will be nice for you to have some time to relax and get the final things organized before the baby comes. really, it could be any day now! or as much as five weeks :( i'm really excited.. i can't wait.

I'm excited for you too - I can't believe next time I see you there will be a Derek/Amanda Jr.!
Rest up lots!

I hope the baby doesn't come too early cause it sounds like you need a few weeks to do absolutely nothing, girl!! Take it easy Amanda, the best thing you can do for your baby right now is to take care of yourself!! I know I sound like one of those preachy old ladies that think they know everything...sorry. One thing I've learned (the hard way) - is that you have to take care of yourself in order to be a happy mom!

I wanted to post and saw it was all girls. So I decided not to.

The I changed my mind.

Though I'm sad that you aren't at TM anymore, I'm glad you're taking the time you need. I wanted to call yesterday but was traveling. I'll talk to you soon.
