70 Questions

I was tagged by Amy, and because I don't want to be nagged, tortured, and judged for the rest of eternity - I'm doing this stinkin' survey.

1. The phone rings. Who do you want it to be? Amy says that I nag her, but she nags just as good as me - sometimes better! Bryan doesn't usually call me from work, so if not Amy it would be my sisters or my mom.

36 Weeks

Wow. I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted last. I apologize. For those of you who come to my blog frequently, you probably already know why I haven't blogged - this pregnancy is kicking my butt! I don't remember having this much pain/discomfort toward the end of my pregnancy with Gracie. On top of that, I'm not sleeping well either - which is not a good sign! I should be loading up on sleep to prepare myself for when Baby James finally gets here. Apparently, he has other ideas. And so does my bladder!

I start my leave from work on August 3rd, which I am very excited about. I'm just tired and exhausted and wondering if I can make it the next two weeks. I think I can. Right?

My baby shower is this Sunday at church, and I'm VERY excited. We've been members of this church since April 2006, and while I've been to a few baby showers and bridal showers I've never had one myself. This will probably be my only baby shower, but I'm still excited. I'm excited to have the room ready when we get to bring my little man home. I'm excited about seeing who he looks like - Bryan or me. A lot of people go back and forth about who Gracie resembles more. I don't really pay much attention - I think she's a good combination of both of us.

I guess the exhaustion is causing my post to be kind of scattered and pretty random. Please keep me in your prayers. I plan on breast feeding exclusively when James comes (I breast and formula fed Gracie - breast feeding only lasted a month). I am hopeful that this attempt will turn out better, but also terrified about not taking a certain prescription medication that helps with a chronic stomach problem I have. So these last few weeks (while I'm still on the medication) I'm loading up on foods I enjoy that I know I won't be allowed when I'm breast feeding. It's very nerve wracking for me, but I am hopeful.

Now I'm off to be nosy and see if anybody bought anything else from my Target registry. Then it's an early bedtime for me!
