I've been a bad blogger. Honestly, I just haven't felt like blogging. My heart just hasn't been in it lately and time has not been on my side. I am off work now (more on that later) so it sounds like I have tons of free time, but I have tons of things to get done in that seemingly (to me) short amount of time. Here's a brief run down of everything that's been going on:

-I'm officially full term! 37w2d today! As of today, I am 3cm dilated and 50% effaced.
-Abbey and I are both doing great!
-I am still struggling with weight gain, but it's nothing to be really concerned over. Last Monday at my 36 week appt, I lost all 10 pounds I had gained up until that point. So that got me taken out of work and put on modified bed rest and earned me a super fun stay in L&D. The nurses in L&D were super, super nice and I got to go home about 5 hours after I checked in. So no biggie :)
-Abbey's room is FINISHED! I'll post pictures later.
-I'll also catch up on my belly pics from the past few weeks at some point.

And that's really all that's been going on. I've been really enjoying and savoring these last few weeks and have been spending as much time as I can just watching Miss Abbey bounce and move around in my belly. I know I've said it a million times, but I'm going to miss her being inside so, so much. Ben can't wait to get her out, I can't imagine not having her in!

If you have e-mailed me about my private blog, I have your e-mail saved and will get invites out soon. That is probably another reason I haven't blogged over here much. I have a lot of things that are more personal that I am saving and don't really feel comfortable sharing with just anyone. I'll try to get all those invites out this week at some point.

YAY! So glad you're full term now and all is going well. I'll be praying for a smooth delivery and recovery for both you and Abbey.

I haven't e-mailed yet (I'm a bit of a slacker) to let you know, but I'd like to follow the private blog, too, if you're okay with it. If not, I understand. My e-mail is cedgison {at} carolina {dot} rr {dot} com.
