Running out of time!

So awhile ago I had predicted that I would be having a May baby. Whelp...here we are, May 31st and no sign of baby, and I don't get the feeling he will be coming today.

We're almost out of time for my May prediction and I'm okay with that. He'll come when he's ready. I'm enjoying my last days of quiet, my last few days of nothingness.

I have my 39 week appointment tomorrow and I'm not convinced there will be much of an update. I have come to accept that this little guy might still have a few weeks left in him. <3

Time Flies!

It's been about a month since I've updated this thing last, although it feels like yesterday.
If time is already flying by now, I can't imagine how it is going to be once the baby comes!

*2 down...1 to go. My other two girlfriends have had their babies! Baby Floyd will be boy number 3!
*As of yesterday the doctor said I am 1cm and 90% effaced. This means it could be days or weeks before this baby comes!
*I have given my "two weeks" at work with my last day being June 3rd (unless the baby comes sooner, obviously) I will not be going back once the baby comes. Jeremy and I have decided that I will work part time for awhile while we are getting situated with the new addition!
*Within the past week Jeremy has really gotten into the "nesting" phase. It is cute!
*I took my personal training test and FAILED....I needed a 500 to pass and only got a 468. The piece of paper literally said..."Status: FAIL" So polite :)  I can always retake it in the future, so I'll continue to read and take it when I'm a little more prepared.

Things I didn't realize:
*How hard it would be to pee into a cup when pregnant. I never thought of it actually...but it is extremely difficult to do!
*That snoring would be part of my pregnancy package...I think I've controlled it a little bit (Jeremy can be the judge of that)
*How itchy my stomach would be. I thought I was going to get away from the itch....but within the past few days it has become extreme!
*I caught a glimpse of my belly button today while walking by the mirror today and it looks like a little pig's snout! NOTHING I HAVE READ WARNED ME ABOUT THE PIG SNOUT ON MY STOMACH.
My Pregnancy:
Overall I have had a great pregnancy. Jeremy has described it as "boring"...Boring in the sense of: no morning sickness, no weird cravings, no issues, no crazy pregnancy hormones (well not really anyway....), etc.
I have really enjoyed being pregnant. It has been a fun and different experience. It is crazy how much love I already have for this little guy! <3

I look forward to the next few weeks. I am really excited with the whole "not knowing" when this guy is going to grace us with his presence. I think that's part of the fun. All I can do is be mentally prepared and he will come when he is ready. We're ready. Bring it on Baby Floyd!

We are getting closer and closer to baby time! This weekend was a fun time with family for baby shower #2

We are so blessed to have such amazing people in our lives! I know that Baby Boy Floyd can already feel the love!! <3

We started packing our hospital bag...clothes for us and clothes for baby! LOOK AT THOSE TINY DIAPERS!!

I can't wait for Baby Floyd to wear this bib. Thank you Aunt Cindy :)
