Down to Weeks...



Less than a month until this little one is due now. That seems so unreal. I feel so unprepared this time. I know I have everything that we need--the carseat is installed, the clothes are hung, we even finally chose a name. I can't quite figure out what it is I feel like I'm missing. I have a couple of projects I wanted to finish, so perhaps that's it, but as time goes on, it seems less and less likely I'll get those completed. I'm just getting too big to pin quilts in the floor right now.

The girls are getting excited too. I'm not entirely sure how much Gabby understands, but she does pat my tummy and talk about baby. Kate is very excited. She switches the gender occasionally, but she typically predicts a little boy, since, "I already have a sister."

The midwife I saw today (the one I typically see was out due to a death in the family) is estimating that baby will be 8-1/4 lbs at term. She did order an ultrasound for next week, just to be on the safe side. Everything is going well though, no concerns. She said she expects me to still be pregnant next week--I laughed. I have several things I scheduled for next week, since I figured it was still too early for delivery, besides that my girls were not known for their prompt arrivals! I sure hope I'm still pregnant next week. The baby can come after Gabby's well visit Friday afternoon.

Are you taking bets on whether this one will arrive on someone else's birthday? Yours, Gabby's, Holly's or Mine? We have several possibilities. I'm more anxious this time. I guess because I know I need to be there as soon as possible for the girls. It worked out well last time, so I'm hoping this time will too.

Justin's dad is 10-14 too. I guess if he/she arrives on someone's b'day they win. :)
