Bump Update: Week 38 a week late

Needless to say, last week was a bit of a blur.

Walking into my appointment at 35 weeks 6 days and walking out at 37 weeks 5 days was a bit of a shock. To know that at any moment LBL could be joining us and we could be parents is a little crazy, and a little intimidating.

We also talked to the midwife about my fear of an epidural. I know I promised to discuss why we're going the natural route but haven't really gotten around to it. Five years ago I had a Staph Bacteria infection in my spine and long story short some of my spine fused together & I'm missing a disc so the thought of an epidural scared me half to death. I mentioned this to the midwife and she is going to talk to the head of anesthesiology to make sure that plans are made so everything is safe.

I've been feeling good for the most part. We've trying to get the Behemoth in order so we aren't bringing our brand new baby into a dirty construction mess and it's really coming along. The contractors came in and trimmed out the kitchen so now it's just up to Jus to finish painting and we're good to go!

I'm dying to see pictures of the finished kitchen and of the nursery and the rest of the house!
