Looking forward to:  Our maternity pictures on Sunday and her crib being delivered (today!)

I am getting the GBS test done at 37 weeks and am looking forward to it because my ob will also check and see if I've started to progress any.  I'm so ready for Lizzie to be here!  The 2nd and 3rd trimester up till about 30 weeks were wonderful!  Aside from my hell-like 1st trimester, I have honestly loved every second of being pregnant.  But now, I'm done.  I still feel pretty great, but am just done.  Two more weeks till she is full term, and then she may join us as soon as she is ready!
Yesterday I started gathering hospital bag items, and asked my {mom} friends on fb for packing advice.  I received some super helpful and super funny advice.

We bought a swing and bouncer off Pendleton Yard Sale for 50.00 earlier this week.  B and I were having a hard time justifying spending 150 on the snug-a-bunny swing.  She will only really use it till she is about 5 months, and then it will be stored till we have more babies.  Anyways, they both work great and after washing the seats and taking some Clorox wipes and a Magic Eraser to the plastic parts, they look brand new!  We have them set up in the den so Mackie can get used to them.  B also set up Lizzie's Pack n Play earlier this week, as well as attaching the car seat adapter for our stroller.

We have all the basics ready for her, and over the next few weeks we'll buy the rest of the "little things"!
