I hope that every one had a good weekend. Saturday I woke up and had this burst of energy that I am really not familiar with. I think they call this sort of behavior "Nesting".
I switched our bedroom around and put together Jake's room. I've cleaned his room a few times but then we would have a shower and I have to do it all over again. Don't get me wrong I am so appreciative for all the wonderful things that our loved ones have given us but it's a lot of work. Now I can say officially that Jacob's room is DONE. There are no more showers. All his clothes are washed and hung up and the monitors are charged. Baby bag is packed and the car seat is ready. Now we wait!

After doing all this on Saturday I realized that I may have over done it. I could barely walk. Brent was at the boat show with his buddy Chad and I was stuck in bed for the rest of the day. Although I was hurting I was happy to have everything done.

All I can think about lately is getting my Thank you cards out and work. They have both been stressing me out so bad. I need to just relax but the anticipation of Jacob's arrival is more than I can deal with right now. I am such an impatient person. I just want to meet him.. UGH.. 2-4 weeks 2-4 weeks 2-4 weeks..

I was in crazy "nesting" mode yesterday! I could barely move last night! I've never done so much baby laundry in my entire life! Doesn't it all smell so awesome? Today I am like a slug though. I definitely over did it yesterday too! Hope your work week is better than last week was for you. Hang in there.......the last couple weeks are the longest and toughest but you are oh so close!

I bet it is a relief to have everything done, that way if you go any day, no worries!

Nesting - that's a good sign! I remember how hard it was to be patient when I was pregnant with Cooper (and Maren, and Quinn, and this one . . . why does it not get easier?!)

Do you have the means to get ahold of an inflatable exercise ball? I remember feeling so out-of-whack with Cooper . . . sitting on the ball for a couple of hours a day (espeically at the computer) helped A TON with my back, as well as helped open-up my pelvis for delivery (so much so that I swore by it with Maren as well - both times I was 3 centimeters dialated by 37 weeks.)

Hang in there!

Almost there. It is nice knowing everything is ready though.

Ok...so maybe I'm just really emotional because it's almost that time of the month...but for some reason I cried when I read this. I hope Jake comes very soon and all is well, sounds like it's going to be:)
