Best moment of the week: Baby-Q last Saturday

Labor signs: Nothing lately.
Symptoms: Just the usual discomforts.
Belly button in or out? Starting to poke out slightly.
Wedding rings on or off? On unless it’s super hot and my hands start to swell. Yesterday, the library was so warm that I had to tug my rings off, and they fit my pinky finger without a lot of looseness.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy but tired.
Looking forward to: Our postponed beach weekend and only two more weeks of work
Baby prep: Finished our two-night expectant parents class – still don’t feel confident that I’ll have a clue what to do, but Travase seems to have it together for the both of us. Breastfeeding class on Tuesday. Trav picked up the bassinet last night. Still lots to do to get ready.
Next appointment: June 3rd
