35 wks PG - and counting down :)

Well, I AM trying to cherish these last few days and I've got plenty to do between now and when the baby arrives, but I am counting down and only hoping for 3 1/2 more weeks. If I have this baby 3 days early like I did Lindsey it will be on a very busy day. Jonathan is a groomsman in his cousin's wedding on June 21 and I would rather not disrupt the whole event. I would like to have the baby Father's Day weekend at 38 1/2 weeks, but we will see. I am definitely not going into the hospital to be induced, but we will see what natural remedies I can do to quicken this process! I start my weekly Dr. appointments next Tuesday at 36 wks and it's all down hill from there :)
Here is a pic of me at 34 wks and 4 days - last Saturday!
I have been wanting a swing for this baby, but didn't think it was actually going to happen - until... Last Saturday evening we made a trip to Babies R US to pick up a few small items and Lindsey discovered the swing for us. It happened to be already assembled and on clearance, but in perfect shape. I took one look at it and knew that if I was going to get one, this was it. It is actually 3 - in - 1. A swing - infant seat - toddler rocker. I couldn't completely reason the whole idea of spending money when it might only end up being used for a few months, but not this one. Lindsey already loves the rocker and is enjoying it. I see this getting used - A LOT! I am so excited. One of the main reasons that I wanted one in the first place is so that when I need to put the baby down, I can do so and not worry about Lindsey picking the baby up off the couch, etc. without supervision. With Lindsey, no one else was around, so I could lay her down wherever and I knew that she wouldn't get hurt, but not this time :) Lindsey will be a great Big Sister, but I don't put it past her trying to be the "perfect mommy"!

I can't believe you only have 5 weeks left until your due date! WOW! For us it seems like your pregnancy has gone by really fast! Good luck with the delivery.
Did you try any "remedies" last time to speed things along?

I loved the pics. And cannot wait to see the new little one.

Enjoy your blog. It hardly seems time for the baby to be about here. That's what distance does for us.

Love you,

You look fantastic! I love the swing - how cool! The other day I caught Landon pushing Morgan VERY HIGH in her swing! :-)

Hope the baby cooperates with your busy scedule :) I can't believe that it's almost time for her to arrive1 Hope all goes well! At least you're well prepared in the diaper bag department! LOL!
