Bean is still growing. Fundal height measuring 40 cm, up a centimeter from last week and still measuring just over 2 weeks ahead; funny enough, I actually lost a little weight since last week. Go figure! Dr also confirmed what I already knew... baby is engaged in my pelvis.
As I type, dinner is in the oven. Mmm, chicken fajitas...
So here's what I've got accomplished off my to-do list these last couple of weeks:
-Cleaned up the balcony and dealt with the plants.
-Washed the metal shelf from the balcony and moved it into our coat closet as a makeshift "pantry".
-Washed 4 loads of baby clothes, blankets and other assorted items.
-Put washed baby stuff away in the closet in her room.
-Packed bags for hospital!!! (Sitting by the front door)
-Vacuumed! (Is it just me or is this a particularly odd word in the English language?)
-Sorted through non-maternity clothes and started another donation pile.
-Sorted through bookcase in our bedroom and moved it to the other side of the dresser to make room for the bassinet (with hubby's help of course).
-Ironed the pile of clothes and other items that have sat there far too long.
-Ironed and hung the curtains that my Mom made for the baby's room.
-Applied for mat leave benefits.
-Stockpiled on meat for the freezer and some canned goods for the pantry.
-Baked: banana bread and cookies. Was supposed to put some in the freezer but well...
Amongst all my appointments, I think I've done pretty well! Today I went on a cooking spree making meals for the freezer for after baby comes. I made:
-Chilli (enough for two meals)
-Spaghetti Sauce with veggies and italian sausage (again enough for two meals)
-Turkey patties (enough for three meals)
I also made tomorrow's dinner (stuffed red bell peppers) while I was at it since it used several ingredients I was already using.
Suffice to say, I'm popped!! Think I'll just chill tonight and clean the kitchen and bathroom tomorrow...
