Pregnant Lady Update

We're at 36wk4d today.  Time is flying by and creeping by at the exact same time, which is really weird.  I was texting back and forth with girlfriend of mine who just moved away.  She had their baby boy at 36.5wks earlier this summer.  I can't imagine. 

I'll admit, I think physically I'm ready to not be pregnant anymore but mentally he can stay in until he's good and ready to come out.  I've reached the point where I'm just not comfortable and can't sleep.  I can fall asleep without and problem.  Like fall asleep within 5 minutes of head hitting pillow, mouth open, dead sleep...but that only lasts for like an hour and a half.  Last night I think I was awake from 11:45pm until around 4:30 or 5:00am.  Yes, that's as miserable as it sounds. 

Between the 4 visits to the bathroom and the cramping, it makes it difficult to sleep.  I lay in bed and listen to my lil pugchild on the floor beside me just snoring his lil puggie heart out and I'm so jealous.  I crave sleep...and french fries...and chocolate chip cookies:)

We had our couples shower yesterday afternoon.  It was thrown for us by some of our friends in the squadron.   It was nice to include the guys as well.  The squadron just got back from a 2 week TDY in Florida.  Thankfully Mr Jetplane was able to take those 2 weeks off and has been out the house with me finishing up all our renovations, which I am so happy to say are finally complete.  YEAH!! Its only been 2 years, but if you think about it, he's been gone for atleast a year of that with constant TDYs and a 7 month deployment thrown in their for good measure! 

I've had him home for a few weeks now.  Its rather strange since I'm used to him being home for 2-3 weeks and then leaving.  Don't get me wrong I love getting to actually live with my husband, but in the past year or more its happened so infrequently that you almost get used to being alone...almost. 

Here I am before the shower in all my big belly glory.  I have gotten so many compliments on this dress.  Its from Old Navy and is maternity.  Its a great dress and I highly recommend it.  I bought it in both Small and Medium.  I'm in the Medium one now.  I am also wearing a new necklace I recently bought from Max and Chloe, but mine is in all green. 

Here we are together, the happy parents to be. 
 Since I'm talking about some recent purchases I thought I would share with you some other things that I am currently loving... 
From Max & Chloe I ordered this reversible monogrammed necklace.  Its silver on 1 side and gold on the other.  There's also a lil sneak peek at what baby boy's name is going to be. 

And since I'm preggers and being preggers means comfort is king, I decided to buy a new pair of slippers.  I thought about UGG slippers, but I'll be honest I wasn't into paying that much for house shoes.  Sorry folks.  But I'm happy to say that I recently bought Minnetonka slippers and boots and love them both.

These slippers are comfy and do come in a few different colors, not as many as the UGGs do, but for under $40, I'm totally fine with that. 

Here's to another uneventful week in our pregnancy.

that dress looks super comfy, but would probably swallow 5'2" me. :( Long dresses make me sad sometimes.
