What’s that? A mere SIX weeks left? Absolutely. As it turns out, I am due to have a child in 41 days. Will I have her sooner? Oy!
Q: How is the baby?
A: She’s great! We had an appointment last week and she is now in the head-down position, which is a good thing.
She also weighs approximately 5 lbs – which is right on target with what she’s supposed to weigh.
Q. How am I feeling physically?
A. Oh boy, I’m slowing down a bit. Ok, a lot. Truth is my stomach is very round. Bending down to pick up things? Not easy. Number of things Lila drops per day? 629. I’m definitely at the getting-tired-more-easily point and am hovering at the sleeping-is-no-longer-comfortable point.
One of my favorite things, though? Baby Girl 2011 gets the hiccups all.of.the.time. (So did Lila.) They always make me smile.
Q. How am I doing emotionally?
A. I’m SO excited. I mean, I am REALLY excited. I cannot WAIT to meet this little girl. Ok, sure… I can wait… but may the record state that I’m really excited. I talked with my doctor a lot about the delivery of Baby Girl 2011 and I feel much more comfortable than I did before.
Q. How is the weight gain at this point?
A. Solid. 🙂 I’ve gained 28 lbs. According to the books and websites I’ve read I’m consistently at the “maximum”. HA! At least I’m consistent. What do I get for consistency? Brownies. Hmmm…
Q. Is the baby’s room done yet?
A. Nope! But seriously, let’s be honest – it’s so hard to get things done right now. The holidays, work full-time for both C. and I… Craziness. However, C. is really working on it. I’m pretty excited to decorate it after he’s got it in order.
We did some maternity shots last Sunday to commemorate what will more than likely be the birth of our final baby.
(I was loading these maternity photos on to my computer and threw them in a folder I had previously made when I FIRST found out I was pregnant for Baby Girl 2011. This is the first picture that popped up when I opened the folder. Me. 5 weeks pregnant. CRUEL. It’s amazing how much a body can change.)
Merry Christmas, ya’ll.
