today marks week 36 of this very uncomfortable pregnancy, and today i had my first exam to see if anything was happening in there. i've got four weeks to go (supposedly) and i'm already 3cm. ha! now all i can do is hope this baby decides to wait till after friday, because art will be gone all this week at MIT doing a presentation.
in the meantime, i'm doing what little nesting things i can--packing my hospital bag, trying to set up the nursery, and TRYING to finish the baby's quilt that's been sitting on the rack for over a month. i'm also trying to enjoy my last days/weeks of a baby wiggling inside, although to be perfectly honest it's more painful now than enjoyable. i would definitely prefer the external wiggling at this point.
