I was up this morning getting ready for my doctors appointment and Drew was hanging out in the living room when we heard sirens going on and on for about 5 minutes. It sounded like it was on our street, so we thought we better go outside and make sure we didn't have a neighbors house on fire or anything, so we popped out and this is what we saw!
There was a police car with sirens on escorting a fire truck (with sirens on) with Santa up on top waving! Apparently they were going up and down every street in Haughton to wish us all a Merry Christmas! It was pretty neat, and made me smile at the fact that we are in a nice little community where they do things like this.
Since I had the camera in hand, I had Drew shoot a quick photo of me. I think it's terrible, I feel so huge! But I have to think positive and remember that it's part of building a healthy baby! Besides, if my rear didn't get bigger with my stomach, I'd probably fall over from being front heavy right??? We'll just pretend anyway, teehee!
Alright, here's my 38 week photo!
So I went to my Doctors appointment, and alas.. there was no change! He said I'm still doing good for most pregnant women at this stage, for a first pregnancy. I feel like there is definitely stuff going on, but apparently my cervix doesn't agree, so we continue to wait.
I went to the store to pick up some of the last items I need for Christmas dinner tomorrow and came home. Since we missed Thanksgiving, we decided to do Turkey instead of Ham for Christmas. I'm so boring, I usually make the same side items (fresh green bean casserole, and whipped sweet potatoes with coconut streusel topping, mashed potatoes, salad, and rolls) for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but we both love it so it works out well. Plus it feeds us for about a week each time! Can't wait to get cooking tomorrow!
Off for now, I'm thinking I'll go for a walk and see if we can't get this kid to move her way downwards.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Night Before Christmas! Our thoughts are with you, wish we could be too!
