QUICKLY approaching D-Day Month!

T-minus 2 weeks or so... and counting. Its been a busy couple of week for A, B & Baby C. Last week, my work hosted a shower. They generously added to Baby C's growing library with some great classics like Winnie the Pooh and a collection of Fairy Tales. Brandyn's school also got together to throw him a shower. The kids pooled their money and gave us a very generous gift card to Target (no doubt we'll get great use out of that!). One of B's fellow teachers Denise, presented us with several home items (blankets, burb cloths and a cross stitched piece of art). Everyone has been so generous!!

As for me... today "officially" marks my last day of regular commuting into San Francisco. My Dr. suggested that I work the last two (or so) weeks from home... and my work agreed! Thank goodness too... 'cause the day is REALLY beginning to wear on me. Yesterday... TWO people (both my regular Starbucks Barista and my Boss) commented how I'm starting to look swollen/puffy... niiiiice! I guess its true. My wedding rings have come off... and I only have a few select pairs of shoes I can wear.

And the belly... it keeps growing too....

We're pretty well set for Baby C's arrival... just working on a few last minute projects. In the meantime... I've "packed" my bag. (Well... I've organized it all in the Baby's crib... ready to be scooped up when we need to head to the hospital).


Tomorrow, February 28... marks the last day of February. Next month up on the calendar... MARCH. The month of Baby C's arrival!!!

Wow! That's crazy how quickly that went by-I remember meeting you at the Pyramid brewery and you weren't even pregant! That felt like yesterday, but I guess it was almost a year ago! Have fun working from home!

Man time flies.

Don't worry too much about the swelling. You'll pee it out in no time. I remember looking at my ankles one day and wondering what in the world happened to them. They were nearly gone because of the edema. Luckily it sounds like you started retaining about when I did so it won't be too long. Try to keep your feet elevated and maybe you can talk B into massage your feet and calves, if he isn't already.
