This bumpdate isn't going to have the same peppy tone that you might have grown accustomed to in previous ones. I don't feel very peppy, and I'm sure as heck not going to fake it.
I'm so ready to not be pregnant anymore. 
This last month is tough, really tough.
I feel huge and useless.
It's like I'm just twiddling my thumbs and counting down the days until he arrives. 
I would also like to take a second to complain about the amount of stairs we have in our house. 4 flights of stairs. It's absolutely ridiculous. That's not even counting the other random stairs we have throughout the house.
I'm trying hard to continue being productive, but what my mind wants to do and what my body is physically up for are two different things.
I pretty much look like a penguin when I try to walk, and I move at a slower pace than I ever thought possible.

My 38 week appointment is in a week, and I'm hoping to hear some good news at it.
I hope everything is moving along how it should, and that we will meet our little boy in the next couple of weeks.
I started packing our hospital bags so that everything will be ready when the time comes.
Not knowing when we are going to get this show on the road is definitely difficult for a planner like me.
So for now I'm spending a lot of my time relaxing and waiting.

Trust me, I know everything will be worth it in the end.
I'm just at a point where time is moving at a snails pace and it's not very much fun.
