Sometimes you just need a pick me up...

... so I got my hair done while I could. I call it "sun-dried tomatoes". :) Oh, and this is 37 Weeks. I'm term and hoping to make it a couple of more weeks (fingers crossed), so my Dad can make it home in time. She is however "engaged. Woke up this morning, and yes, I could tell! Ouch! not sure if this means anything since she could stay that way till my due date. Hmmm, a question for my OB.



Had my appt on Mon. Blood work came back. Everything was normal except my uric acid was a little above normal. Between that and the blood pressure, we're keeping close tabs on things to make sure it doesn't turn into pre-eclampsia. Trying to just go with things and stay clam and relaxed. If things get significantly worse, there'll be talk of induction but I'm hoping it won't go that way.

Meanwhile, I'm actually getting things done around the apartment. It's helping keep me focused right now. The more I accomplish, the more I want to keep going. :)

I love the hair colour...and I am so glad that you are getting things accomplished.

Higher Uric Acid maybe the reason why there is increased bloating....

You look mahvalous!!! I can't believe you are 37 weeks already! Sending prayers and good thoughts that the pre-e doesn't become an issue and that your dad will arrive in time for the birth!

I love your hair! You look so good - and so ready to be a Mom.

Your on the home strech, even if it seems like an eternity away. I can't wait to hear the news of your little one's arrival!
