Only one more week....

until I can finally get off my butt and out of this bed! I saw my midwife this morning and as long as I don't "spring a leak", I should be back to work on Wednesday. I never thought I'd say this, but I might actually be glad to go back :) Thank you to everyone for your prayers and good thoughts. I also greatly appreciate those who have sent packages or popped in for a visit... I really have some great friends :)

Christmas was fantastic. I spent the weekend at my parents' house (yes, lying down) and my brother was in town. I received some great things, the 2 that I'm most excited about are a pressure cooker (artichokes in 10 minutes!!!) and my new maternity jeans (my brother is WAY too generous and bought me some sevens). As you can tell by the picture below, they look great on him ;)

I'd now like to share with you this weird side effect of pregnancy (don't worry, it's not my belly button)... we refer to it as fire toe. Sometimes it's just one toe, sometimes it's my whole foot. As you can see here my right foot is ON FIRE. This happens at night and it makes it really hard to sleep and frankly it sucks. Please don't mind my non groomed feet, bed rest is giving me ample time to give myself a pedicure :)
