Baby Peanut: 40 Weeks and a Nursery Tour

Hello, 40 weeks.  You know what's great about being this far along?

My butt looks small, comparatively speaking.  For someone who's had a ghetto booty her entire life, this is a small bonus for still being knocked up.

In the end, my due date is proving rather anti-climactic.  I've accepted that Baby Peanut will be here soon, but it may be another week until I'm actually holding her.

(J, on the other hand, disagrees.  As I'm typing this, he just stuck our bags by the door, even though I informed him that there's no reason to do that.  But I digress.)

If she's not here by Tuesday, my doctor is going to bring me in for a non-stress test and ultrasound just to ensure that Baby Peanut is still happy and healthy.  She seemed optimistic that I'd be in labor before then, but there's no way I'm counting my chicken before she's hatched.  So, we'll see.

So, the nursery is basically done.  There are a few things I'd like to do, decoratively speaking, but my brother will be here for Christmas so I'll let him handle that.  We all know he has better taste than I do.

Welcome to the pink palace.  Really hope Baby Peanut is still a girl.

A really feminine girl, at that.
