Update: I'm Free to Waddle!

Friday, February 12, 2010

Yesterday, we had our 36 week check-up with the doctor.  She said that everything looks good and gave me permission to "return to normal activity."  (Durel wisely avoided making any jokes about how I'm never really normal.) 

I'll be returning to work full time next week and can take a vacation from my home for the past few months, the recliner in the living room!  However, I also sincerely appreciate the fact that Monday is a state holiday.  (Presidents' Day.  It's even a real one.)  A four day work week to get back into the swing of things is divine.  Of course, we have no idea how long this return to normalcy will last -- the doctor also confirmed that Cheeseburger could come at any time. 

In light of my return to the working world, I decided to honor some of the "home-schooling" I've done in the past few months:


For those of you who know me well, you know that I start every project with a little research.  Well, growing a baby is a big project, so...I did a lot of research.  And, all jokes aside, Pregnancy for Dummies is a great book.  I highly recommend it.

(This does not include, of course, the books I've acquired about taking care of your baby once it arrives, developing healthy sleep habits, feeding, and all that crucial baby jazz.  I am segueing into that stack of reading material soon...)


Hope this finds everyone well.

  1. You've made it full term! A long cry from that call I got from you on that Saturday morning in December. I'm glad you've made it :)
