37th Week Prenatal Appointment
Everything looks great! Uterus still measures at 37cm (probably won't grow much more now), my blood pressure is still considered normal, the baby's heartbeat was in the 120's, and I only gained one pound last week! My weight gain has definitely slowed down. This is normal, and I probably won't put on much more weight before the baby arrives. What I am gaining, I think is water retention, as I'm pretty swollen all over. It is a waiting game, now, and the baby could come any day. We are so excited, and cannot wait for that day to arrive!

Landon is meeting with the first of three contractors that are coming by this week to take a look at our house for the addition. We are hoping it will work out to add this additional living space this summer if all goes according to plan.

After my morning nap, I had an unusal burst of energy. After weeks & months of having no energy at all, here is what I was able to accomplish today:

You are never going to believe it when you get home!!!
Karli says:
You know how tired I've been for weeks, months, basically a useless human being except for the fact that I'm growing a baby??
Karli says:
Well, today was different. After I woke up from my nap, I had more energy than I have had my entire pregnancy. I did a LOT of yardwork. You aren't going to believe it!
Karli says:
I worked real hard for about 2 hours.
Landon says:
KARLI YOU ARE NESTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Landon says:
A BURST OF ENERGY!
Landon says:
IT'S A SIGN
Karli says:
Well, now all the sticks are picked up in the whole yard, the porch has been swept, the mats are hanging to dry, the sunporch was swept, the house was swept, and I picked up all the sticks (a lot of them) in the yard, swept the sidewalk, and put the grapefruit in the compost.
Karli says:
I also carried a dead plant to the compost (a day's work for me any other day), and I also hung the plant back up on the Tuff Shed.
Karli says:
I got the wheelbarrow, the rake, the shovel, and the push broom. I worked real hard.
Karli says:
Now, I'm real tired!
Landon says:
wow, this is amazing.
Karli says:
But, I'm still ready to help out with more yardwork if you need me to.
Karli says:
Oh, I also pruned the hydrangea.
Karli says:
I cut off all the dead blooms.
Karli says:
And, I put the garbage can on the curb.
Karli says:
I also took out all the trash, did the laundry, etc.
Karli says:
Now, I'm going to fold some clothes & make the bed.
