Food, food, and more food

I had my 37 week appointment today.  Somehow I gained 6 pounds in one week!  I have no clue how that happened.  I think the doctor was a bit off with their scale.  I blame most of it on a full bladder and water retention.  I am so stinking swollen lately I feel like a marshmallow.  (Or it could be the large quantities of crappy food I keep eating.)

This past week has spent preparing all our freezer meals for when the baby is born.  For $150, we made 11 meals, 10 frozen pizzas, and a crap load of pancakes for breakfast.  That is not including leftovers that the casseroles will yield.  I think we did a pretty good job.  It sucks to pay that much up front, but at least we have food ready to go so I won't have to venture to a store very often with two kids, and I don't have to worry about making a menu.  We did this with Hannah and it was so nice.  The only really big thing I have left to do it pack the hospital bag.  I keep putting it off, but I am not sure why.  I think packing a hospital bag makes it real, and I am not ready for reality.  I know I should do it since the doctor said the baby is low and it could be any day.  I am ready to not be pregnant, but I don't think I am ready to handle two kids.  Hannah is really testing boundaries lately, and it is driving me crazy!  I don't even want to think about it getting worse after the baby is here.


  1. That's awesome. Sounds like you are almost ready! :)

  2. You're going to do great. You can totally do it.

  3. I wanted to do the meal thing for when both girls were born, but so far it hasn't happened.. Maybe when we get to #3 I'll actually get around to doing it.
    I know I waited until the last possible minute to pack a bag and put the carseat in the car. Lucky for me, baby #2 was fantastic and it was hardly any different than only have 1. Good luck!

  4. I'm jealous that you're able to prepare meals. I thought about doing it but I know most of them will go to waste since we're moving shortly after baby arrives. I feel ya on everything else....I'm ready to not be pregnant, too...but how in the world do we deal with 2 kids?! It'll be interesting! ;)

  5. Hey there! I nominated you for the Liebster Award. I got nominated, and had to pick a few blogs and immediately thought of you! Hope you don't mind :) Check out my blog to see it!
