Today I am officially thirty-six weeks pregnant. This is kind of a milestone. I'm officially "full term", meaning, if I go into labor they won't stop me, because the baby will more than likely be born perfectly health and strong.

I'm not really in a rush for this little guy to get here though...This weekend Fernando and I are getting away to Naples, and I've been looking forward to it for so long! Then next weekend is my second baby shower, and there are still a few things I need (sort of). So, there's no need for baby F to make an early arrival...I wouldn't mind him to come on his due date - or there about.

I'm feeling good - my cough is gone! **Hallelujah!** And this is my last week of work.
I do have some projects lined up for myself so I don't go crazy just sitting around waiting to pop.
I'm really excited about cooking meals I can freeze! Most of the meals I found online were pasta meals, which isn't bad, because I'm Italian and I could eat pasta probably every day of my life - maybe. But I need diversity and health, so I've tried to be a little creative. For example, I'm going to grill some chicken breasts and cut them into strips and freeze them so I can pop them into chicken quesadillas, or throw them on a salad. I'm also making some turkey meatloaf - nice, lean meat with plenty of protein. I got a recipe for Multi-grain waffles that looks amazing and they can be frozen after they are cooked. Yum.

Other than cooking meals, I plan to swim (hopefully every day), get together some fun baby/kid music on a playlist, and gather any last minute items I may need.

I'm really encouraged by how great I feel - still have good energy, I'm in really good spirits, and I don't feel nervous. I'm sure that will come, but for now 36 weeks is looking pretty good!

Oh, and this has nothing to do with anything, but here's a picture of all the bridesmaids at my sister's wedding.

I was 33.5 wks then.

So glad to get to read your blog again. With all the facebook stuff I almost forgot you still had a blog. So excited for what God has during these last 4 weeks......and beyond of course.
Glad you are feeling better and still having strength.
