35 wks. I'm still feeling pretty good. After a few unseasonably hot days, the weather has cooled off to pleasant spring temperatures, which I'm grateful for. I spent two nights falling asleep with the help of fans and wet towels. I don't know how my mom survived August being 9 mos. pregnant without air conditioning!
I'm trying to catch my tummy moving on camera, but the baby seems to be camera shy. Actually, the baby has been very shy about allowing anyone to see or feel movement (except for jb and, of course, me). Thank goodness for hiccups, they are a surefire way to guarantee my siblings and parents will feel some sign of life - because usually the baby will be rolling and kicking like crazy until I invite someone to feel the movement and then nothing. Maybe the baby will be really good a freeze tag.
We are doing lots to prepare in this final month. We plan to cloth diaper this baby and I've been doing a lot of research about the different types of diapers and am starting to build up a stash of a couple different kinds. Mostly I've been focusing on one-size diapers (that should last from birth through potty training), but BumGenius currently has a promotion that offers a free diaper (sized) with purchase. So, naturally I took advantage of the offer and for the free diaper I chose a size xs, since sometimes newborns are too small to fit into one-size diapers. Well, they came in the mail today and the newborn diaper is soooooooo small, and soooooo cute. Here is the xs diaper next to a regular one-size diaper:
And of course every stuffed animal in the house has a diaper on.
I also made a mobile for over the crib. It's very basic - two wooden dowels, some nylon string, and oragami paper cut into bird shapes.
I've also been dying and aplique-ing some of the more boring clothes - but that's a-whole-nother post.
Now, most of what is left is cleaning. Ugh. I'm all about nesting in the making things or buying things or rearranging and organizing ways - but the typical deep-cleaning type of nesting totally does not appeal to me. Maybe it will kick in the next week or two...
