35 weeks.

So, I haven't posted in a week.
I know. I'm so lame.
Mostly because my life is not filled with that much drama. WHOA. WHAT?! NO DRAMA?! Okay, there has been drama but nothing big. Haha.

I'm kind of a hater of my tickers. I know I made them that way but tomorrow is a MONTH until my due date. Yeah. 4 weeks. Not even real.
So sometime this week I'm 36 weeks. I'm going to say on the 27th is when I'm 36 weeks because I counted from my due date and that's when I would be 36 weeks. I've been off but I can't find my calendar where I wrote in the dates and it shows what week I'm actually on. I kind of just give up. Ha.
I'll be 36 weeks this week. Got it?

I've been a lot more uncomfortable lately. I've had more Braxton Hicks lately. Yesterday, I was sneezing a lot. I had a stuffy nose or something but every time I sneezed I had a sharp pain at the top of my belly. I'm pretty sure she had some sort of leg/arm/elbow/foot something just chilling there because it was not the best feeling in the world.
My family and I played Settlers of Catan until like 2 in the morning and even when I laughed, it hurt.
I did not win. I think I took 3rd. My dad obviously got to 10 victory points. I think RuthAnn got to 8? I got to 7.

My poor little Jasper was on the balcony last night. We don't ever let him outside. My mom is afraid someone might steal him because he's so beautiful.
I'm afraid since he's just so fiesty he's going to get himself killed. Ha.
My dad came across a hornets nest while BBQing and I guess there was a hornet on the deck and Jasper was playing with it. He got stung :( I tried to comfort, hold, and love him. But he was too freaked out and I have this battle wound on my hand. Ha. He's better now. It just freaked him out. I felt bad because I couldn't do anything to make him better.

I also haven't posted because I'm trying to have a life. :) ha. Whatever that means.

I think Monday, I had to work. Tuesday... I worked in the morning and I tried to make plans with people but instead I sat at home and watched TV with RuthAnn. Baha. Wednesday I hung out with my friend K and we went to group together. It was a birth mom panel, we mostly talked about placement and post placement and their experience with that.
I enjoyed a lot of what they had to say. 3 out of the 4 girls had closed adoptions.
They basically said to keep yourself preoccupied after everything and to be motivated or else you'll get stuck. And a few of them had gone back into their old life style and they thought to themselves, why did I even have that whole experience and just throw it all away? So they changed. I think all of them were married in the temple and had their own kids.
I remember in the birthmom panel thing one of the girls said, What bothered me is that people would talk and say that I was the bishop's daughter and was pregnant and all I had to think is, "So what? Your daughters or your neighbors daughters are doing it, just because some sins show doesn't make me or my family awful." And it's SO true. N's family doesn't have to deal with it at all and they get to live their lives normally and don't have to show that their son had sinned. But my family gets judged because their daughter has. It's unfair all the time.

Later Wednesday night, my parents and I went to see a family friend in the hospital who just had her baby a few days before. So cute :)
Then I went to Provo to hang out with RuthAnn and we saw The Time Travelers Wife. :) So worth it.

Thursday, I worked during the day and then that night I hung out with K. We went to Wal*Mart and purchased 17 Again. Oh Zac Efron.
My FAVORITE scene of all time!
I just love how he talks about seeing his daughter for the first time when she's born. Oh man. I almost cry every single time.

Friday day I hung out with K. I think we ended up finally watching 17 Again. I think we only had time to purchase 17 Again Thursday night. Then Friday night, I worked. And I forgot school is back in session... and so football season begins. It was HECKA busy.
I worked Saturday day. Then later I hung out with K. We were going to see a movie, but nothing is out that looks good. So we went to the mall. I saw THE cutest sweater/vest thing at Papaya that I must purchase. :) ha. Of course, I won't be able to wear it until after Olivia is born. But it's still freaking cute!
Then later that night I played games with my fambam. We played 2 rounds of Nertz (it's a card game it's combined speed and solitaire. The best!) then Settlers of Catan.

No church today because of the Oquirrh Mountain temple dedication.
I have no idea what I'm doing the rest of the day. I'll probably watch 17 Again. Go figure. Ha.

I have nothing else to write about. That's my update.
This week I work on Monday. Tuesday off. Dentist appointment and group on Wednesday. My first pelvic exam on Thursday with the doctor. Ew. My appointments are every week now. I might have plans on Friday... with... someone. You'll find out. Ha.
Then I probably work the rest of the week. I hope you all have a splendid week. Farewell. :)
