I have exactly one month to go until my due date and as you know I am hoping for an early arrival. I am getting soooo antsy!! Not in a nesting type of way but ready to have this little one. Her room is pretty much ready, I am waiting on 2 things to arrive my mail and then I am set. My mom is still working on her crib sheets and dust ruffle but if they don't come in time it is no big deal. Wow - I have really calmed down with the nesting instincts. It is getting so much harder to do things I am not worrying about how dirty my kitchen cabinets are.

I am also VERY tired of all of these Braxton Hixs contractions. I get them all of the time and especially when I am laying down on the couch relaxing in the evening. Isn't that suppose to make them stop. They don't hurt like a real contraction but they are getting stronger and sometimes they take my breath away.

Right now I am 35 weeks and 4 days.

I think if I was busier at work it would really help the days pass. My job does not keep my busy enough. I have been cleaning my desk and organizing old files for the attorneys in order to stay somewhat busy. The weekends pass quickly because I do stay busy.

What do you do to stay busy at work when you are slow? What did you did during your last pregnancy to pass the last month?

I stopped working a week before my due date - mostly because I was supposed to be induced during that week. I turned out not being induced and instead I spent an entire week being bored off my butt. I did lots of walking. And anytime I talked to anyone on the phone the first thing I had to say was "I am not in labor."

This time around I am thinking if I do take a week off, I will spend it doing all of the stuff that is difficult to do with an infant (e.g., Shopping by going in and out of lots of stores).

Oh best of luck to you...My littlest boy was born at 36 weeks, 3 days (early!) about a week from where you are now. I had TONS of BH contractions with my last pregnancy (my son is 4 mos old now) but to pass the time I cleaned, wrote thank you notes, worked on homemade baby announcements (that I never finished), baked and worked on my first son's baby book...Hang in there!

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll have to keep an eye on yours for pics of the new little one. Hope the last month goes quick for you:)

I stopped working five days before my due date and was a week and a half late. I was bored out of my mind, and alternated between cleaning, folding baby clothes, and crying. Then my mom starting dropping by and taking me for long walks. That helped to relax me and to pass the time.
