Getting close!

I'm 2 1/2 weeks from my due date! Wow. I'm slowing down a lot - averaging 7000 steps a day. My belly is just so heavy, I'm
uncomfortable walking for long. And need frequent bathroom stops!

I'm formatting and putting final touches on the first draft of my dissertation - standing at 386 pages as of tonight! Going to put in a lot of hours this week/weekend and hope baby stays in till then :) Baby hasn't dropped yet, so I hope I have time!

Had my brother's wedding this weekend. Was so glad I was able to make it! Months ago, I was unsure how it would all play out.

Making life progress and looking forward to a new phase to start!

Finally- bridesmaid pic!

Took a while but some wedding photos from August have finally started coming in- here's my favorite so far:

Things are going well - working like a fiend! Ready to drop. Sure want to see the end of this dissertation someday!!

35 weeks!

Got heartburn for the first time in my life this week, yikes! Managing by eating smaller meals, sipping my water more slowly, staying propped up and TUMS! It's been manageable but ever-present for three days, ah well.

Doing well otherwise! Sorry for being so quiet but I'm getting closer to finishing my dissertation and that's where my writing energy is going.

Here's me at 35 weeks, feeling pretty darn good:

Hoping baby stays put for at least 3 more weeks, hopefully for the full 5!! But who knows :) Going to keep plugging away at my schoolwork regardless. Everything is ready for baby, though - room is finished, supplies stocked, car seat secured, etc.

Eating a lot lately - I'm ravenous!! But gaining pretty much as expected, around a pound a week :)

Back to work <3

Having fun getting ready!!

I'm loving nothing better than nesting right now!! Lots of prepping for practical baby needs and also lots of indulging my need for cuteness!!

Most of my spare time is being spent on schoolwork though - forgive my absence! <3
