Pregnancy: Week 34

34weeks

Is it over yet?  That's pretty much the attitude I've had lately.  If you haven't caught up with my blog, I've actually been contracting for a few weeks and I'm currently on medication to stop them.  While I'm still pretty far along, it's just much too early for this little girl's arrival.  Thankfully, my contractions aren't squeezing baby B enough to change her heart rate.  So while it's uncomfortable for me, baby is doing fine!

I officially have one week left of work!  My current condition almost put me in the hospital or on bed rest, but I have been lucky enough to keep my word and work until December 6th.  I guess some people would just want to take the time off but I have the big picture in mind: the longer I work while pregnant, the longer paid time off I have with my baby.  As for now I'm scheduled to return to work in mid May but I'm actually unsure whether I'll return part time or at all.  Being a first time parent is scary!  We don't know what our financial situation will be like with another human to feed so we just have to wait until she's here to really gauge how much I'll need to work.  I'm a very protective person so the idea of childcare really scares me.  I don't even like people watching my dogs, imagine how I would feel giving my daughter to someone?!  Hopefully everything will work out and I won't have to worry about it :)

My family baby shower is on Sunday and I'm very excited!  My mother in law has put everything together and I can't wait to see what she has in store for the day.  I haven't seen a lot of my side of the family in quite some time and my sister is home from New York city.  Can't wait to spend some time with her too!

My nursery is nearly complete.  The custom closet is almost finished and I just need to purchase some curtains for the room.  I keep saying I'm going to show you some pictures but I want to wait until it looks perfect.  I promise I'll have some up soon!

As for now, my January baby is probably going to show up in December.  I was born at the end of December so it will be interesting to see when B decides to arrive.  I'd prefer later than sooner but I'm ready to have her with us.  I'll make sure to keep the updates coming!
