37 weeks, 3 weeks to go!

Hi all! Things have been busy around the Sanchez house. We are trying to get the house ready for the baby. I've been clearing out the clutter, cleaning, and we have hired people to come and clean the carpet and the house. I told Leo today that we should have a baby more often, we have gotten a bunch of stuff done in the last few weeks. The nursery is finally done! It is very peaceful and it came out better than I expected. Click here to see the pics. For Christmas Leo got me track lighting for the kitchen and we installed it ourselves! Believe it, since I've been pregnant Leo doesn't say no to me too often. I'm going to miss this once the baby is born. It was pretty hard work since I was limited and Leo had to do most of it.

Last weekend was our last childbirth class and overall they were very informative. I hope we can implement what they taught us. I think the hardest part for me is going to be the relaxation part. I hope I can be calm and just work with my body when the time comes.

On Jan 22, my co-workers had a baby shower for me at work. They were so sweet and generous. They gave us the mattress for the crib, diapers, clothes, and blankets. The pictures are below.

I've heard that the last few weeks are hard because you are so uncomfortable but I'm still sleeping pretty good; I'm only a little achy if I stay in one place for too long and some days I'm tired but most days I feel normal. I've stopped jogging now because I come back very achy so instead I'm walking. Pebbles holds me accountable to at least 3 times per week. I'm truly amazed at how well I'm still feeling. I love feeling the baby move, he is getting so big that his movements are very obvious. I don't know what body parts I'm feeling but I know I'm either feeling a leg or a little butt or his back. It truly is an amazing feeling.

I'm up to a little over 20 pounds and I'm just grateful it is mostly in my belly. My belly has gotten pretty big in the last few weeks. I started going to the doctor's once a week and everything is progressing on target. The baby is head down which is good news.

I think Leo is getting anxious and wants the baby out soon. Me, on the other hand, I'm ready to not be pregnant but I don't feel ready for the responsibility of a baby. But I know it is coming and soon. In the last week I've started to picture the baby in our lives and this is getting me a little more ready. I've also started to wonder what he will look like, how much hair he will have, how big he will be, etc. Leo kisses my belly good night every night and one night this week he says "be nice to your mommy on your way out." I thought this was really sweet and funny. I'm hoping for the same thing.

We'll keep you posted on any new developments.
