To Term

Done! All the work is handed in and I walked at my graduation yesterday. I am still in a graduation haze and the fact that l@w school is finally over is very gradually settling in. Now, I can focus completely on having this baby without feeling guilty that I am neglecting school or other obligations. For the next 3 months, I have only one obligation and that is truly exciting. It's a whole new idea to me and I am hoping to milk it for all it's worth.

The nesting instinct is starting to take hold, although not in the most productive way. Instead of feeling energetic and feeling the need to organize and clean, I just dream about it fitfully. Then I wake up and remember that nothing has been done and there is still so much left to do.

On the humor front, I fielded a junk phone call the other day. For some reason I felt the need to humor the person and tell them what types of magazines that I was interested in reading. The caller latched onto the idea that I am pregnant and suggested Fit Pregnancy. Not a terrible idea. She quoted a price and I asked how long that would be for. Answer: 5 years. Um, I'm not sure that I am going to be pregnant for five more years, but hey, what do I know?

Sounds like the kind of magazine Mrs. Duggar should subscribe to.

Congrats on finishing up school! I know- I'm late in saying that-- I get to read blogs like once every few months now it seems-- I have no idea what i am so busy doing..maybe it's all the catching up I am trying to do now that I feel human again :)
so you have just another week or two to go... yikes. It's so cool and I am so glad that you are doing this before me- I know it sounds crazy but the more blogs I read on women who actually do give birth the more comfortable I feel about it- and I know it won't happen without me but I can't say I am looking forward to the last few hour part..worth it I know-- but I still have fear. I hope you are well my friend- and I look forward to reading your birth experience!
