No progress!

That was the verdict at today's doctor's appointment! Granted I'm only 35 weeks (measuring 37) and we don't really need progress at this point but I thought for sure all these contractions I've been having had done something! But no! Not a thing! I go back in 2 weeks but for now we're still on for a c-section on April 22 (apparently before even the chickens get up as I'll need to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM!). That's freakishly early but at least we'll be able to get it over with early in the day and it won't be 5 or 6 pm before I can eat! LOL! I guess now I can quit worrying that she's gonna just "fall out" as it has certainly felt like the past week. I gained 5 pounds this time bringing me to a grand total of 23 pounds. I'm fairly certain that all 23 pounds are in my stomach because even my biggest maternity shirts no longer fit and the "kangaroo pouch" pants are too tight around the middle! I refuse to buy any new ones this late in the game though! I'll just wear Jason's t-shirts & pj pants! LOL!

We had a little time to kill before heading to the doctor so we ran in (well I waddled in! LOL!) Hobby Lobby. They had tons of stuff on 50% off this week but I had to be good and just picked up some page protectors & some envelopes for the baby announcements I hope to get pre-assembled. Jason wanted to look at some of the home decor stuff that was on sale and we got a super cool, large wrought iron cross for the wall in the entry way. It didn't have a price tag on it (though some of the others that were similar were $39) and when we got up to the register with it the girl decided that it should be $20 so we paid $10 since it was on sale this week! Such a great deal!
