Flipped on its Head

So last night Huz and I completely reversed the stereotypes of a pregnant woman and her spouse. How, you ask? Well, while he was at the computer (which he was for about 13 hours yesterday as he studied for exams) he told me how much he liked the peanut butter ice cream we had at a friend's birthday party the night before. Meanwhile, I happened to be craving apples. Yes, I said apples - that healthy fruit that grows on trees. Not ice cream, not chocolate cake. Weird. So I went to the grocery store at 8:30 and got my apples and his ice cream. We're just mixing up the gender roles all over the place here, yo!

Here's the dinner I made last weekend. It was awesome. Try it!

Pretzel Crusted Pork Chops with Mustard, Orange Cream Sauce and Balsamic Reduction

Here's me on the way to the birthday party on Friday.

Last Day of 35 WeeksLast Day of 35 Weeks

It was the last day of my 35th week. That means I'm 36 weeks and if I go to 40 weeks, I'm going to be a Mommy in 27 days. WHAT!? EXCUSE ME!? I'm going to be a WHAT in HOW many days!? Fear is definitely starting to set in over the whole delivery thing, but hopefully everything will go well; hopefully I can manage the pain (I'll get an epidural if I need to, but want to try for as long as I can without); and hopefully looking at our perfect little girl for the first time will make all the negatives (if there are any) disappear in a heartbeat.

Nothing much has been happening around here, other than Huz studying for his exams (he's past the half-way mark now and we'll be celebrating here on Friday!) and me working, doing water aerobics (I took several weeks off due to stress at the new job and a head cold a few weeks ago), starting to make my baby announcements, and feeling a lot of pain in my pelvis (good times). Oh well. It will be over before I know it and then I'll miss feeling those daily hiccups and rolls in my belly.

Signing off (so Huz can get back on here and work),
