So far, we've enjoyed some pretty quiet weekends in September. Perhaps I should say that I've enjoyed them. Jeramy, on the other hand, gets quite antsy and feels the need to get out of the house. Luckily he is happy to take a ride on the motorcycle and leave me to the peace and quiet of home. I've been using the extra time to work on knitting and cross-stitch projects, that I'm trying to finish before Jillian arrives. It's a good thing I'm happy being a homebody, since there will be plenty more of that in the months to come. I'm a little concerned about Jeramy though, because he is rarely content to sit at home.
My co-workers threw me a baby shower last week. I was thinking that it would just be something small, and I was admittedly overwhelmed by all the gifts. They bought us a swing, which was the last big item that we needed. I also received a ton more clothes (including some larger sizes!) and lots of other items. After we buy a lamp, I think that the nursery will be complete. I can't believe there are just a few weeks left, give or take. Every strange pain I feel, makes me stop and wonder if this is it.
I'm more than happy to wait a few more weeks though. I really need to get a couple more weeks in on my projects at work so that they are in a good stopping place, as there is nobody to cover for my absence. Friday, I ended up working from home because our van pool was not running, and I had no meetings scheduled. It was nice to put my swollen feet up for the day, and I got a ton of work done. I was so productive it was almost difficult to quit for the day. If I'm feeling as exhausted by the end of next week as I was feeling at the end of this last one, I might need do the same thing again. While I've had an easy time of it pregnancy-wise, I must admit that the swelling, aches and fatigue are starting to catch up with me.
