39 1/2 weeks...

hi! i am still here! :) i thought i better update this before our sweet baby arrives...
things are going pretty well! we moved! a few bits of craziness here and there, but overall it was very successful! we are still living amongst a million boxes, but that will change someday! :)
i have about 3-4 boxes left in the kitchen, just not sure where they are gonna go. this new home is smaller than our other one so it is an adjustment to find places for everything. lots of trips to the DI! the bedroom is full of boxes that i need to sort through. i am going to have my scrapbook area in the bedroom, so that is going to be an adjustment too. my project today is try and get the scrapbook stuff somewhat sorted so that i can move my bed the way i want it and make room for the baby's bassinet. (i am being super careful and leaving the heavy stuff for kevin and mom to do when kevin gets home tonight). :)
i am feeling pretty good too. my due date is in 3 days, but i am thinking she will just come when she wants to. i feel her moving lots during the day and that is fun! she loves music. always starts dancing when she hears it. :) so cute!
my feet are in a constant state of swollen, but i try to rest every little bit and prop them up. i am hot all of the time, but that is normal too... i am normally hot in the summer, add baby and i am really feeling the heat! :)
i am still able to sleep on my tummy, at least most of the time. but i have to ease into it. if i go straight to my stomache the baby starts knocking telling me she doesn't like it! :) so i go slow... back, side and then tummy! she is ok with that! :)
kevin and i went through all of her stuff last weekend and found all of the 0-3 months cloths. i washed them this week and am trying to pick a outfit out to bring her home in. :) so fun! and so crazy! next week this time i could have a little sweet baby in my arms! wow...
well, i better get back to moving stuff... just wanted everyone to know i was doing well. :)
