Gettin' Old

Today is my birthday and Im 28!!! Holy cow. I'm getting up there. But I still feel like I'm 20.

I have had a GREAT birthday so far. I decided to give myself the day off work so I've been home relaxing and cleaning my house. Gotta get things ready just in case this little girl decides to come out and meet us.

The birthday celebrations started yesterday when my work replacement, Linda, surprised me with this big boquet of flowers from her and the doctors.


Not only that, but she had been working behind my back for the last few weeks at getting each of the doctors to write me a note for my birthday, and secretary's day, and kind of a good-bye thing. Even though I'll be going back to work part-time.

Linda went to tons of work and it was the coolest thing ever. She compiled all their notes into this cute little scrapbook. The picture went on here sideways but oh well.


Then today on my birthday Brandon made me pancakes, eggs, and orange juice for breakfast. And then I've been at home all morning and am loving it. Later on we are going to go car shopping and hopefully actually buy one this time. :) We have been meaning to buy a 2nd car before the baby came. And we are getting pretty close to that time...

I still haven't reached the point where I'm dying to get her out of me. I love feeling her roll around in there and I'm still fairly comfortable so I really can't complain at all. I'm totally planning on her coming late. The official due date is the 29th of April but I think she'll be born in May. All I know from the doctor is that they won't let me go longer than 41 weeks, which will be May 6th. So we'll meet her by then for sure.

Here is a picture of me at 39 weeks. I am still in awe that I'm here. This has been such an amazing experience and I am so grateful for it. I feel so bad for all those who are still in the same boat I used to be in who want children but can't have them.


Well, I would stay and chat but I'm off to go enjoy the rest of my birthday!!!

You've had a birthday shout hooray! We want to sing to you today. One year older and wiser too Haaaaappy Birthday to you!

You seriously look too good to be 39 weeks. I'm completely miserable by like 20 weeks. I was thinking she'd come today on your birthday, but if you wait until the 1st she can share a birthday with my littlest one. Or on the 2nd she can share our anniversary. So hopefully one of our lucky days will be hers too.
You look great! Can't wait to see this little girl.

Happy Birthday Steph. I get so excited when you post because I think the baby is here. Alas still no baby. That is so sweet what they did for your birthday at work. You are still looking so cute so keep enjoying this time.

Make Linda do the scheudle! I didn't know you were going back part-time. How many hours will you be working? I think you will enjoy part time. It's worked out well for me to be part time, it's nice to have a few hours of adult conversation.

Happy belated Birthday! What a great present too! I assume the car is not one of the recalled ones? Way to stay loyal to them.
How fun to have your birthdays so close together. Easy for Brandon to remember!
