I am officially off work!

34 weeks today, and I am on doctor-recommended disability from my job. Sooo happy and relieved. It was hard to get around at work (read: waddling, which my coworkers looooved to point out on a consistent basis), and things were becoming just generally physically uncomfortable for me.

Not only was it hard to keep up with a full workload and I was too exhausted at nights to do anything remotely productive at home, but now I will have time to cook for John and relax and decorate the baby's room, and actually get some jewelry and writing done. I'm so excited!

...Of course, today consisted so far of making breakfast, paying bills, watching a movie, going out for lunch, and then a long nap. -___- Not getting much accomplished, yet. But, there is next week.

yer in the home stretch! this will be the last downtime you'll have for a while so get as much sleep as you can. Or maybe write more...

I plan to! (The sleep *and* the writing, that is. ;) )

Freedom! XD

Be sure to get a lot of rest, and don't worry about not doing much :) Downtime is downtime, after all.

Yay! ^^

Yeah, I figure if I use the slow-and-steady approach to tackle everything I want to do - baby's room, writing, jewelry-making - it won't feel like I'm doing too much all at once. I think this weekend was just recuperating from a hellish last few weeks at work. Whew!

Thanks! ^^ I haven't had an extended vacation from work in years, so even though I'm not going anywhere, this might feel a bit like it.

Eeee, so close! (Is your due date around the 17th or so?) And lucky you getting off time, that's definitely going to help keep you more relaxed and give you time to do, you know, BABY STUFF, hee.

But first, movies. And naps. Definitely a good call :3

Yep! Due date is the 16th, actually. Not of March, though - of April! ;)

My doctor thinks I'm going to deliver him earlier than the due date, so she recommended me to go off work early because of potential complications. I do feel pretty lucky that this will give me some extra time to prepare before the birth.

First on the list is thank-you notes for my baby shower last weekend. But then! Freedom! :)
