Full Term

Well, we have reached the point of 37 weeks - full term.  It feels so good to be here!  It is a bit of a weird place to be as now we are just waiting for Cupid to arrive.  We are all ready for the arrival and now just sit and wait.  and wait. and wait. and wait.....  This is my last week of work and I am looking forward to starting maternity leave.  Thanks to all of the sick time I have banked over the last 11 years at my job, I can stay home until March 1.  I am so thankful for this!  Four plus months off will just be heavenly!

Yesterday we went to finish out our registry and had lots of fun spending gift cards.  We were also amazed at how much we still "needed" and couldn't believe how much cash we spent as well.

I fully took advantage of the stork parking space!!

 Good thing we didn't need too much!!!
Ahhh, the home stretch is here!

It is such a wonderful feeling for me, a reader, to know that you are JUST around the corner from meeting your baby. You both are going to be WONDERFUL moms!!!!

What a BLESSING it will be to have off for so long, then, just a couple of months, and summer vaca!

You are so lucky to take off before the baby arrives. It's a nice luxury. You'll be grateful for it. Rest up, make dinners (I read about it but didn't do it much and I should have), stock up on nursing bras and breast pads (the best are the organic ones from Babies R Us. very absorbant),pads, and comfy pj's and rest. Having off until March 1st will be so nice. Oh gosh, I'm just so truly excited for you.

You sure you don't need anything else? I think you bought out the store! :)
How blessed you are to have that much time off... you will truly cherish it, as will the baby.. This is a very lucky "little Cupid" to have you both!
Enjoy the last couple of weeks of time together.. it will be the last for the next, oh, 18 years or so!

That's great you have a nice amount of time off.
I can't believe you're SO close! Are you getting nervous or just plain excited?
I'm feeling both emotions...for you two! :)
Can't wait to hear how everything goes.
