Just around the corner...

How far along? 37.5 weeks
Maternity clothes? Yep. I only have about 5 outfits left that are comfortable. I just rotate and wash!
Sleep: I am actually sleep like a baby...Ellie has been sick and recently got ear tubes, so I have been up with her some. Somehow, she has now figured out if she says "mama" long enough I go in there. I guess she is just getting me ready for the nightly routine of a newborn.
Best moment recently: Just being able to check a lot of things off my list. We went to Sams and stocked up on essentials. I started getting things together for my Hospital bag. The nursery is almost together. Hopefully by this weekend Lyell and I will get over our fear of hanging a large (and expensive) wall decal we got for the room. Like, it keeps staring at me knowing we are going to screw it up some way. Oh, I am scared just thinking about it.
Miss Anything? Bending over. It hurts! Ellie dropped the ever precious Hoot Hoot Lovie and the wind blew it under another car...insert curse words...another mother took pity on me and crawled down to get it. Crises adverted. 
Movement: Yes. Its more like a sliding around because he has run out of room.
Food Cravings: Same ole weird Katherine things. Confession time. You guys might have to sit down for this. Are you sitting? I have been craving my moms pimento cheese. I will look back and be so grossed out by this later...but for reason I guess my children take over my taste buds and some cheese taste good. 
Gender: Boy. 
Labor Signs: I have had some crazy contractions. Braxton Hicks and False Labor (or at least my doctor said so). I have started the weekly visits but he is still very high and no dilation. Induction is set for the 13th. The guys at work are pretty excited my son will have Friday the 13th birthdays in his future.
Symptoms:I don't really know how to answer this at the moment...I weight a ton, everyone that sees me says I'm going to pop and I waddle. Like straight up waddle...I'm pregnant!
Belly Button in or out? Flat? is that an option
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: I've been a little moody. Mainly because I get myself stressed out. Everyday things are getting harder and harder for me physically. AND, I am getting nervous about Ellie. Two weeks out and I am still rocking her to sleep. Its such a bonding for us because I am not with her all day and hoping we can still squeeze it in at nights once Win arrives. 

Looking forward to: Meeting my little man!! I am so excited to watch Ellie interact with her little brother. I signed her up for "tots on Tour" at St. Thomas. Its for small children to tour the facility and get excited about being a big brother or sister. 

Ellie has been over the moon about all the new things coming back into the house. She is in  FULL MOMMY MODE with her baby dolls. I truly believe Lyell and I have prepared her for her role (to the best of our abilities). Here are some cute pictures of her with her baby doll.
