37 weeks and a car seat cover
I'm feeling really well. Just tired, which is to be expected. I go in tomorrow, but so far, nothing is going on and I haven't felt any contractions. I find out my strep b results, which I hope are negative. With Ali I hadn't been tested and they had to give me penicillin every 4 hours during labor. For whatever reason, it felt like as it went through the IV, my arm was on fire every time! It was totally awful. I'm sure they've fixed that glitch by now, but I'd just prefer not to have it of course! Justin is still not letting go of the name Jackson. I am waiting to see him and go from there. I've started to pack my hospital bag (my sister packed it for me last time with Alison, thanks Em!) and make sure everything is all clean and ready.
The girls are doing well and seem excited about "baby brother". Molly has a dance recital on my due date, so I'm not sure if I will be able to go. Her last day of school is May 18th. She has had her fair share of sweet and sassy days/moments lately. She is excited about wearing new spring clothes and the girls love to ride backs out on the back patio. Ali is copying everything Molly says these days. Sometimes it's cute, and sometimes not! Yesterday Molly was teasing and saying, "you're funny looking". So of course Ali walks into Molly's preschool and starts telling a little girl that. Nice! I had to explain that she doesn't know what it means and I'm sorry! Ali wants to wear "a pretty dress" all the time. Molly went through this stage, but it was when she was 3. We have a few dresses and a skirt or two, but I may need to buy more! Molly wants to play with her little neighbor friend every day. She pretty much asks me every day. The girls also love to play on Justin's phone and iPad. They like the cake game, a fairy game, and an animal sounds game mainly. Justin's LAST final is tomorrow! It seems so weird. Graduation is next Friday. He will be working part time and studying for the bar after tomorrow's final.
