Last Bump!

I was planning on taking my last baby bump picture right before we left for the hospital, but Yaniv pointed out (rather insightfully) that I may not feel like taking a picture at that point.  I mean, labor...  Seriously.

This represents what I *hope* to be my last baby bump picture for this pregnancy: 40 weeks, 2 days.  I can't say I look a lot larger than 3 weeks ago, but I certainly FEEL a lot larger!

Like I said before, induction is scheduled for Tuesday, so no more than 3 days left!  Want to know how that makes me feel??

News! Sort of...

I've been doing my best to keep busy.  I made dark chocolate oatmeal peanut butter no-bake cookies this week, but have no pictures to show of them as I scarfed them down rather quickly.  Apparently being full term means I will eat anything with sugar.  Tonight I made chocolate chip pecan cookies with whole wheat flour.  They are quite tasty, although I messed up the recipe as usual: melted the butter, couldn't "whip" anything, and refused to use a mixer because it's too much cleanup.  But like I said, they taste pretty good...

I also forced Yaniv to complete an art project with me last week: our own rendition of my rocking chair from when I was a baby.  Guess who did which:

My Aunt Beth sent me the sweetest gift - a handmade quilt!  I can't tell you how much I appreciate handmade items because they show SO much love.  I can't wait to use it with our little girl.

Finally, the news: if I don't pop before Tuesday, we've got a date set for induction.  Originally he scheduled me for Wednesday, but I hear about people getting bumped from labor & delivery a lot, and Thursday is Thanksgiving, so I wanted to be sure I had TWO days before the holiday.  So... we'll have our little lady by the 23rd!  Can't wait to send pictures!  Keep checking your email for updates!

No News Is...

They say that no news is good news.  Except that in my case no news means my giant belly is becoming increasingly uncomfortable.  Times 10.  Everyday.

Yaniv is being a trooper and taking care of me much like he did during the first trimester - cooking dinner, bringing me water so I don't dehydrate, etc...

I wish I had more to update about.  Really I do, but I think until the baby comes no news will have to remain good news.
