Maternity Leave

Friday was my last day at work. So, today is my second day of "official maternity leave". I am so glad that I decided to take off before Baby arrives. It's only been two days, but SO NICE!

Yesterday I napped for two hours and managed to squeeze in one more highlight and haircut before she comes. Thankfully my friend Annie was able to schedule me beforehand, because who knows when I will have time to schedule that after Baby comes. Today I napped again! Yes, I did! (If you know me, you know that BP, before pregnancy, I was not a fan of naps- felt like they were unproductive), went to pick up my prenatal vitamin prescription, rented 4 movies from Blockbuster and checked out 3 books from the library. I plan on relaxing as much as possible and doing all the things that will probably be hard for me to do in a couple of weeks (or less!).

I have my two doctor appointments tomorrow, my non stress test at 7:30 and my weekly OB check up at 4:45. If I feel up to it, I think I will go to the Botanical Gardens. City residents get in free on Wednesday mornings. I also need to go buy a Baby Book. I can't believe I don't have one yet. I saw one I really liked early on in my pregnancy, but haven't been able to find it again.

So, that's my life in a nutshell.
Hope you all are doing well and enjoying this beautiful spring weather!!!!

That sounds AWESOME to me!! Happy to hear you are taking time for yourself, it does get really busy after baby ;)
How long is Mat leave where you are? We have a year up here although I never got to take advantage of it because I had one of my babies when it was only a 6 months leave and then I quit work all together so I was home without pay and still am...imagine getting paid for this all the time...sigh...
