Last Appointment Before EDD!

Well thats it! Just had my last appointment before my EDD on the 5th! My next one won't be until the 7th. My midwife as I mentioned will be out of town from the 28th-4th so Im really hoping my little girl hangs on until then but Im prepared if she doesn't. We are all packed and ready to go, just playing the waiting game!

On a super positive note, my midwife said I have gained the least amount of weight of just about any mom-to-be she has ever had! That made me so happy and she sounded so proud! The whole pregnancy I have only gained 5lbs which since I started off heavy enough to carry baby just fine, is awesome! Im feeling so good and positive right now I could outshine the sun!

As of now I'm just slowly building up my frozen food stash for once baby gets here so I don't have to think about cooking. My father has been keeping a steady supply of healthy enchiladas coming my way which I have been freezing and I just made a big batch of Guinness Stew to portion out and freeze. Happy girl today!

That's fantastic! I've only gained 12 lbs, and I thought that was impressive! LOL

Go you on being so organized in getting ready for baby - you want to come over and make meals for me??

It getting time! I've gained 17lbs total, which is less that I anticipated! And great job on being so organized. I'm barely cooking even at this point. DH cooks when he gets home since I struggle getting around now. The good thing is that my mom will be here right away, and then the day after she leaves my dad and step mom will be here. Guess who's already said they'll do the cooking! PLus I have several friends who've offered to supply meals since they didn't do a baby shower. We've got a really small freezer anyway, so there's not much room to pre-make stuff.

Same! I haven't been too worried about meals because I'll have visitors for the first little while!
