I got to sleep in until 10:30am which was well needed, and it helped that I only had to get up to go to the bathroom once (at 4:30am!). I was happy to be able to sleep on either side and have no hip/join pain Tomorrow I'm hoping to sleep in again, until at least 10am before my friend comes over at 11:30am to start setting up for the baby shower. DH was able to do the shelves in Brooke's closet so I can put everything back into the closet to make room so there's not a mess on the floor anymore. I'm thinking I'll be heading to bed early tonight since I'm already exhausted right now, so maybe I'll try to be in bed by 8 or 8:30pm.
Loving the pics. So cute!
Yay for sleeping in! I'm up at 5:30 every morning, but I feel like I am so much more rested than when I was pg and couldn't sleep much at all due to discomfort. Are you feeling pretty good still? Any reflux/heartburn or aches/pains? It's nice that you are going through the last month when it is beginning to cool down.....less swelling that way.
I'm feeling really good actually, like I could go another 3-4 weeks The only uncomfortable parts is the few nights when I have to wake up more than once to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night but the past 2 nights haven't been too bad and I haven't woken up with sore hips/bones/pelvis. I've been having some reflux at bedtime and throughout the night but it all depends on what I ate for dinner, and I know what triggers it so I take the chance. I've also haven't been swelling at all (I didn't with Callie) so that's a big plus too.
Yesterday I had my diaper shower and it was very nice, I had a fun time and got some super cute OS RaR diapers and a FB OS (and have another two coming in the mail from my mom). Brooke will be set (almost) in the diaper department, at least once she outgrows the nb stash I have built for her and I can resell that to fund my OS stash... I think that's one of things that I'm looking forward to when she comes, is putting cute cloth on her bum.
One of my favorites gifts was from MIL for Callie (mostly), it's a baby book type fill-in thing that's mostly from her perspective. It's something her and I can do together before Brooke comes then has me interview Callie at various times after Brooke is born. I think Callie will enjoy doing it, and really enjoy reading/looking at it when she gets older; seeing how I love looking at my baby book, had I had something like this I would still love to look at it.
Today Callie and I get to run errands and we'll probably stop by the park, if it's not rainy since she was home all day yesterday for the shower. I have a feeling I'm going to have a burst of energy today, like I did yesterday so who knows what all I can get done.

Well I know where you can get a good deal on some FB OS diapers right now. LOL
The doula will be worth it. Dh and I are trying to pay off some debt so I am selling off all my in-stock inventory to help with that. We want to get to a place where I can just stay home and not work full time. The FB are very cute. I love how they come with the adjustable elastic.
