37 wks - 4 days...we made it!

It's only Wednesday and it feels like the longest week ever! Our basement is finally drying out, but it still smells terrible. Did you know that wet carpet pad smells like cat urine? I would blame the cats normally, but there would have had to be a freakin pride of lions peeing down there to create the smell that we've had going on. Needless to say, we removed all the carpet pad and shampooed the carpet. We've got 2 dehumidifiers going and 2 fans and we've been sleeping upstairs all week. I'm hoping to get the furniture moved back into the bedroom by the weekend. The smell is getting a little bit better and will hopefully be gone by the weekend. If all else fails, we're going to steam clean the carpet with a vinegar solution. I'm hoping we don't have to do that though....I'm not a huge fan of vinegar odor either. :-)

Our weekly dr appt is at 4:00 this afternoon. I can't believe we made it to 37 weeks! Such a big difference from where we were in May....just trying to hold on until 28 weeks! AnnaJo is pretty comfortable apparently. She hasn't made any major attempts to make an appearance yet! Good thing too...the house is turned upside down from all the stinkin water!

Good thoughts and prayers for today...

So glad you have made it this far. God is faithful! Can't wait to hear of her arrival. You do know she will probably wait until the last minute now. Get used to it, kids are like that, even from the very beginning. Can't wait to keep up with her and the joy of parenting. It truly is an amazing experience!
