38 weeks 2 days

{ghetto mirror shot...hollla}
Baby: Baby boy is 19.75 inches long and 6.8 lbs approx (I can't wait to find out how much he weighs!!!)

If you haven't read this update, you may want to before you read this, everything will make a lot more sense :)

How I'm feeling: Feeling pretty good! Better than last week! I'm still very exhausted. Yesterday I was feeling frustrated that at 38 weeks I'm having to pack for myself, pack for my baby (which by the way is really hard when you're a first time mama!!), clean my whole house, get all the sheets washed, and get everything in order to be able to leave on the train tomorrow to go have baby boy. It's been hard work, but I know that I will be happy I did the work ahead of time when I come home sleep deprived with a new baby. This has been a very exhausting week, and I just can't wait to get to our new location and CHILL!!!

Sleep:  Sleeping has actually gotten a little better this week. I still get up to use the bathroom, but I have been able to fall asleep and stay asleep for longer periods. I'm sure the exhaustion has a lot to do with it!

Workouts: My workouts have been going going going getting my house in order. We haven't had time to go for a walk the last few days. Where we are headed is a very serene place in the woods...I plan on walking while we are there. There is no wifi or anything, so not much to do, which is PERFECT. We can relax and walk and just wait for baby!

Clothes: Still sporting sweats and big T's or tank tops whenever I can :) I'm so relieved we will be the only people staying in the house we are going to so I don't have to think twice about looking like a scrub all the time.

Cravings/aversions: I did enjoy a slushy thing yesterday. Still liking cold things. But no real crazy cravings.

Movement:  Always moving around, just been getting more and more different. 2 nights ago I felt him drop even more...ah...that was the weirdest feeling ever, he's quite an active little guy.

What I'm loving: Loving that only the Lord could turn the craziness of us having to leave into a sweet thing. We are now really looking forward to this little get away. I think it will be so nice to relax and be in a quiet calm atmosphere with no noise from the internet or world. Just Joshua and me waiting for our boy. We get another mini baby moon and I am thrilled about that. I am soooo excited to see my parents too. My mom is doing okay, but they will be stopping at her hospital in Illinois on the way here, so hopefully she'll be feeling much better by then. I can't wait to see them and for them to see their grand baby!!

Daddy: Joshua has been great. I think we've fallen even more in love through this adventure. It is such a joy to go through all this craziness with him. We are great partners and truly balance each other out. He has been so helpful in getting everything ready to go. We haven't let this hectic time bring us down and have truly just been enjoying each other. I couldn't be more blessed. 

We head out on the train tomorrow & will be to New Liskeard by Saturday afternoon! Baby boy can come any time after that, though I wouldn't mind a few days to RELAX before he does...but he's the boss! :)

Thank you for your prayers! I will try to do an update from Tim Horton's once we are there, but if'll be seeing Baby O's face very soon!!!
