These last few weeks I've been getting the babies room ready. I can't believe I've only got 5 1/2 weeks to go. Of course the rest of the house is trashed. Boxes everywhere, the single bed in the living room, the mattress in the spare, piles of toys everywhere. It's chaos. But I've made progress. I've sorted all the clothes, newborn vs 3-6 months vs 6-12. Sleepers in one area, outfits in another. I finally took out the spare mattress to make room for the crib- which is still not built of course. I started the painting today- the tree in the corner, and one of the frog princes. Here are some pictures- I'll post more when I am done. (Neither painting is complete yet!)

I think it's funny the things that I remember from when I was a kid are still around today. Some of the books that I remember as a child (Amelia Bedelia, Hungry Caterpiller etc) are still popular... and songs. One of the guys at work played a song on his phone that his 4 year old nephew was singing, and it's not only one that I remember from when I was a kid- I even remember the hand signals.....
"McDonalds, McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut"
(M sign with hands twice, a beard and the sign of a roof over your head)
I found that amusing.

I can't believe it. In a couple days over 6 weeks I am going to be a mother. Now that I have finally come to terms with being pregnant- (in spite of the discomfort and illness, I think I don't mind being pregnant)- it's almost over. It still doesn't seem real to me that I am going to have a baby. It's almost like yesterday that I took that tiny little pee test that has so completly changed everything. I can't believe 9 months has gone by so fast.
Honestly, I am so afraid of being a mother. I think that overall I'll be a good mum- I mean, I'm great with kids. But I just don't know what the hell I am doing! Will I be patient when she cries? Will she face the difficulties at reading and writing as "sperm donor" does? Or will my plan to read to her from birth fix that? Will I actually read to her? I know I plan on it- but what if I am too tired? How will I cope when she wakes me up every two hours to feed? What if I can't stand breast feeding? OMG What if she doesn't take to the breast? I suppose all these things are things that new parents think of. I guess time will just tell.
For those of you interested, my doctor says she has dropped very slightly into the pelvis. She's facing my spine, and her back is pressed along my belly- so she's getting in position to come out. I gained 5 pounds this last 3 weeks (I need to lay off the grilled cheese I guess) but my doc says that's good as I lost so much in the beginning. But everthing looks good!

Not like I am counting or anything. I can't believe- only 8 more weeks to go. Anyway, here is my newest belly pic (just for you Mum)

Well I finally understand what women mean when they say that they get so uncomfortable that they just want the baby OUT. Because unfortunatly, at this moment in time, I am there. I feel "stretched" all over, like I'll pop if you touch me. And my right lower back hurts, my butt hurts, my legs hurt, my ribs hurt, my insides hurt. I didn't sleep well last night becuase of the "aches", so I'm exhausted, but I can't get comfortable enough to fall asleep. I can't believe that I have 8 1/2 weeks more of this!!
