Quick update

I have just passed the 34 week mark in this pregnancy and now I just cannot wait until this baby pops out!

The heat is killing me!  I can't sleep anymore, turning over is a major undertaking, walking is torture and my feet are HUGE!  I've been going to work wearing birkenstocks as these are the only things that fit anymore (can't wear flipflops to work).  

So far, everything is ok based on the ultrasound and Saturday morning check-up with my OB.  I just really have to wait and keep my cool until I get to meet baby Lucia.  My ob has tentatively set my CS procedure on the 16th of May -- just four more weeks.  The kids are very excited to meet their little sister and have been heard arguing about who's going to get to push the stroller.  

I still have tons to do at home.  Still have some baby clothes and stuff (burp cloths, cloth diapers, bibs and towels) to get, work is still hectic and I'm too tired all the time.  

Oh, and the million dollar question from Joshua:  "mommy, will you still have time for me and Faith when Lucia arrives?".  You gotta hand it to the kid.  Gets straight to the point.

Oh, my prayers are with you and I am so excited for you. Birkenstocks are the best, especially when you're my weight! I am only 24 weeks and I'm already having problems turning over in bed......HEAVY!!!
