37 weeks and 2 days

Ok, now that there's less than three weeks left till my due date, I am finally starting this blog! Hopefully I'll be able to keep everyone updated and this way I won't feel bad as I pick up my phone and can't remember why I picked it was to call all of you! Gotta love baby-brain!

So, a few fun things that have happened in the past few weeks...people in Shul have been asking Shuky if we're having twins! Thanks alot everyone!...I am barely sleeping anymore, at least not during the night anyway!...Shuky obviously loves me ALOT as he puts up with all of my fun demands and mood swings and hot/cold flashes, and convenient lack of memory when it comes to things I may or may not have said and/or done!...About a week and a half ago, I couldn't sleep and Shuky was away at the farm so I got up in the middle of the night and rearranged the furniture in our bedroom (thanks Mom for that gene!)...I remembered at 4 in the morning, a few nights ago, that I left my windows of my car completely open and Shuky had to go down and close them - I was worried it might rain (it didn't)...Friday afternoon I had my first real contraction, OUCH!, not the regular Braxton Hicks I've been having for a few months already...

Today, at my doctor's appointment, my doctor and I discussed when would be the best time for me to go into labor as she is going to visit Grandma with the kids. Score. So I have until the middle of next week or anytime after the 11th. I'm hoping for before her vacation. I can only get so much bigger!!

Of course I waddle, no walking for me, and I feel like I'm menopausal at the lovely age of 22! Isn't pregnancy just a bundle of joy!!! And the baby is EXTREMELY active! I noticed that when I go swimming or take baths, the baby calms down alot and just relaxes, so I try and do as much water activity as possible!

I've been trying to prepare lists for Shuky so he doesn't freak out when he has to run to Walmart to stock up on baby stuff once I have the baby! I made some baby registries for him so he can just print them out and go. Decided to put them up here for fun, let everyone see and make suggestions...There are some things that we're ordering online from other sites so they aren't on any of the registries, if anyone wants to see anything (like the stroller or car seat) let me know and I can put up those links too!

Anyway, it's now 8:40 pm and due to my lack of sleep last night and early morning doctor appointment, it's time for me to go to bed for my party with my millions of pillows that Shuky gets to regularly rearrange for me all night! Love you Shuks!

And I love and miss everyone else and please let this be my call to each of you, personally! I mean to call....really!

Good night and we'll keep you posted!

Wow Chani......
You're really doin this. No turning back now :)
In a shake of a lambs tail you'll have a little buck toothed Shuky in your arms!

What Levi, no Amish jokes?

Chanie, good luck with the blog, it's fun but hard to keep up (I average about one post a month on mine, if I'm lucky)

Good way to keep in touch when there is such a (kah) big family.

Ha Levi, I think it's a smidgen late to have that option of turning back!

And as long as the baby isn't 80 pounds like the calf Shuky helped deliver, I'm good!

Hopefully I'll be able to keep the blog updated as often as possible!!
