A Day In Pictures: 38.5 Weeks Pregnant

July 10, 2011

My due date is ten days away, and I’ve realized that it’s only my demanding job with an hour-plus-long commute that makes me feel desperate to give birth. I’m still really enjoying my weekends, when I get to relax and prepare. I would love to deliver this week for several reasons, but as of this moment I don’t feel like that will happen and I’m psyching myself up for another full week of work. I see my doctor tomorrow, so we’ll see what the plan is.

Yesterday I decided to document my day in pictures, and this is something I’d like to continue from time to time. So here’s what I did!

(All pictures taken with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. They are pretty terrible but I never claimed to be a photographer!)

9:00 a.m. – Breakfast, with a little reading on the side.

10:15 a.m. – Waxing appointment. Ouch!

11:30 a.m. – I accidentally got locked out of the house for a bit, so I took the opportunity to do some reading. :)

12:45 p.m. – Working on the blog and catching up online.

1:15 p.m. – Getting ready to go out with David. None of these clothes is maternity! A medium shirt from Gap and a stretchy skirt from H&M.

2:00 p.m. – We went and saw an afternoon showing of Super 8 and loved it!

4:30 p.m. – Working on the never-ending task of thank-you notes! I can only do a few at a time because of the difficulties I have with my hands.

6:00 p.m. – Dinner at Los Cucos with David’s family, yum.

7:30 p.m. – Watching my new favorite TV show, Secrets From a Stylist with Emily Henderson. She’s adorable (tweets and blogs, which I love) and has great ideas for the home!

8:00 p.m. – My foot gets a little love from Cleo. :)

9:30 p.m. – Reading in bed, my nightly ritual.

10:34 p.m. – Lights out!

Yesterday was a really nice day. I got a few things done, went on a few outings, and was even a little productive! Today I’ve been doing boring things like cleaning and preparing for the week, but I’m making sure to take breaks and as a bonus I have a massage this evening. :)

How was your weekend?
