As of late...

Things have been kinda stressful lately, what with all the changes going on in my life. Of course there's the obvious physical changes as I near the end of my pregnancy. My back is sore at night and sleeping proves to be quite the challenge. And walking is extremely difficult as I have had bad round ligament pain since about month 5. The pain has gotten progressively worse, and I'm feeling pretty useless these days. And the newest physical ailment is swollen legs, ankles and feet. Sometimes I cannot even fit my feet into my running Oh well, not really complaining over here, as all the pain/discomfort is definitely worth the joys of having my little Lily :D

John and I finally found a nice apartment. It's a fairly large 2-bedroom with hardwood floors. Our official move-in date is January 1st, but we're hoping the current tenants will be out a little early and we can move a week before that. I can't wait to finally have a place to make a "home".

This week is officially my last week of work. My contract ends on December 4th, which is relatively good timing considering all the other stuff going on in my life (i.e. moving, Lily etc.) Although I am looking forward to not working, I will miss this job as it really was so interesting to me. But my boss has assured me that when I'm ready to come back to work, there will be another contract waiting for me. Of course it probably won't be a "Species At Risk Biologist" position, but I'll take what I can get.
In crafting news, I really haven't been doing too much. Started to make a hat for Lily and am about halfway done. Here's a pic of what it will look like:

Now my question to you is do you think it's cruel or cute to put such a hat on a baby? lol...I'm obviously leaning towards cute, but my mom seems to think it'll make her look silly...hahahaha...I'd love to hear your opinions!

Lily-bean...sort of...

So on Tuesday I, along with my mom and best friend went to UC-Baby for a 3D ultrasound. Apparently my daughter is already taking after her mother in that she's as stubborn as can be! Despite me jumping up and down, climbing stairs, trying to shove my belly, and bending over, the u/s tech tried for an hour (my appointment was only for 30 min.) but was unable to capture a good face shot. This picture explains why:

Yup, Lily insisted on holding her legs up infront of her face the entire about a contortionist! I think I'll be putting her in gymnastics as soon as she can walk...lmao...

Here are a few glimpses of her face:

It was still worth the experience though, as I got a DVD made up of the appointment and I can see Lily smiling, yawning and sticking her tongue out at times :)
I have a free followup appointment for another 3D u/s next Saturday when hopefully the baby will be more was told to eat/drink something sweet before hand to try to get her more's hoping!
