35 down...35 to go

35 weeks down and 35 days to go!
She doesn't have much room to maneuver now that she over 18 inches long and weighs about 5.5 lbs (about as much as a honeydew melon). She's not doing any summersaults either since it's so cramped in there now, but that's not stopping her from trying. Her kidneys are fully developed and her liver can process some waste products. Most of her basic physical development is now complete and she'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight. I've not have many issues along the way but I have started swelling in my feet and hands. I used to have ankles and knuckles. Guess I'll see them again in a few weeks.

Prayer request:
Mema Moore who lives just outside Prattville will be keeping JoAnna when I go back to work. I have put in a request to be transferred from Selma to another examining office. There are a few reasons for that request but mainly so that we'll be on a set schedule. As of right now some days I have to be at work at 7am and some days at 8am. That's fine when it's just me but it won't be just me much longer! My original request was to be placed in the Prattville office which would be so totally awesome. I was basically told I had a fat chance there though. Then was teased with the idea of working in Wetumpka which wouldn't be bad at all. But then was told no again. Now I have been asked if I wanted to go to the Clanton office 4 days a week and work Prattville 1 day a week. That would be great too! My prayer is that something open up for me soon and they don't continue to get my hopes up and then just let me down with another big fat "no". Can I get a little help with that prayer?
