|this pic turned out a little wild - but I like it!! Here I am at 36 weeks. What is bigger than a basketball? A watermelon? Dear God.|
I haven't mentioned this...but I have to now...because I will be MIA for the next few days. I have to take my freakin' BOARDS next week. In Philadelphia. Pretty much against my Obstetrician's recommendations, as it will be farther than one hour away from my hospital and I will be past the 35 week mark. She understands why I have to go - but she isn't thrilled about it.
Neither am I. This is totally not ideal.
But I have to take the boards...they only offer it twice per year (and the next time is when our baby will only be a month or so old...and I KNOW I won't have much studying time, or sleep time, to prepare for that. Not that my crazy nutso schedule has led much time for study this time around either. *Sigh* Life has been crazy.
Needless to say, we have mapped out a couple of hospitals in the Philadelphia area so if I go into labor we kinda know where to go.. Our hospital bags are packed just in case...and our carseat is loaded and locked into place.
I will be gone until then...vowing to not blog or ANYTHING until my test is over next week. Prayers would certainly be appreciated....if only to calm my heart. :-) Oh...and to pass my boards of course.
*btw: I always post pictures from last week...so this week I'm actually 37 weeks...which is FULL TERM!! When I sit for me boards I will be 38 weeks...and can literally have her at any minute!! Can you hear the shrill in my voice? I'm more than freakin'. Baby and boards. What have I gotten myself into!?
