37 weeks. Let's take a poll.

First-belly picture at 37 weeks. HUGE. It's ok. We like big, healthy babies. I'm now considered "full term"! Feeling great! Still able to work out--we got new kickboxing equipment at the Y and tonight was our first time using it and it was SO fun, but really hard!!! I'll probably be sore tomorrow!! Have been noticing a lot more contractions that are timeable for about an hour and I have been feeling more in my lower back. Still not sure which route we'll go. Just have to wait!
Weight: 164 (yikes, 1 lb away from my goal to not get OVER)
Belly: 43 1/2 inches
Effacement: 50%
Dilation: 2-3 cm

So, let's take a poll. Try and guess if Mia will arrive before the 16th!!! It will be fun to see who guesses correctly! And, while you're at it, go ahead and guess how much she'll weigh!
Preping my toes before birth is a MUST. You HAVE to have pretty toes when you go in to have a baby!!! So Haley, Emily, Cyndi and myself went and got pedicures this morning. It was lovely! :)
Look at that pretty flower she put on my big toe! :)
My friend, Deanna, came up from Indy to visit today. She's expecting a boy in October!! We have such a good time hanging out. She will be celebrating her daughter, Parker's, 2nd birthday in August. It's crazy that it's been almost 2 years. We are both so excited and nervous as we await the arrival of our first baby after losing one to vasa previa. We just get each others fears and frustrations. I love her and wouldn't survive without her!
She also has some MAD organizing skills. This is now what Mia's closet looks like!!! We have WAAAAY too many clothes for this girl. She will never get through all of the outfits that you all have gotten for her!! There are still totes full in the basement with clothes in them......holy cow.

Mia will be hanging out in her $1 garage sale chair next summer. I can't wait!
Totally random, but another great garage sale bargain!! Our new desk!
My husband = a big kid.
Jeremy went and bought these fire works after work today. This is only about HALF of what he wants to get. This is $130 worth. What can I say, he lets me pamper myself, I guess he can spend some money on his own fireworks show!
We'll keep you posted (Well, Haley probably will) if anything happens! Keep checking, Mia will be here before we know it! Hmmmm....a 4th of July baby, perhaps?

Born: 7/4/09
Weight: 7lbs. 9oz.
Length: 20in.

I picked the 4th b/c I will be in town and I think she is waiting for me to be home to make her appearance! :)Also if she is born on the 4th you can add Liberty or Bottle rocket to her name! Hah! We can't wait!!!
