Pregnancy Update: Counting Down

I'm counting down the weeks before delivery: probably between 6 and 7 weeks left. I'm so ready for this pregnancy to be over. The heat doesn't bother me, just the discomfort of feeling like a mutated animal - something between a whale, a cow and a duck. I've begun sleeping in the recliner as lying horizontal is no longer an option.

At the last OB check-up everything looked good. The doctor didn't yell at me for anything - weight, blood pressure, swelling, etc. The baby is moving all the time, especially when I'm hungry. I enjoy watching the lumps jump across my belly. Sometimes I think she's doing somersaults in there! And it's really sweet when the girls come up and gently rub my belly.

I'm still going to the gym regularly, or otherwise doing exercise if I don't get there. I haven't gained any weight since my last pregnancy update, still holding at 23.5 pounds of gain. :-) Cravings are hard to pin point but tend to remain steady for light, fruity things like watermelon, cantaloupe, pina colada icy drinks, popsicles, mango sorbet, etc, and salty breakfast foods, like sausage, egg and cheese sandwiches.

The end is near . . .

Hang in there. By the way, thanks for playing the violin at service. It is really lovely. Of course, we'll try to be understanding when you can't be there due to other obligations, such as having this baby.

I can't wait to see the new cutie.

That's a great picture of you. :D

I hope your pregnancy is as comfortable as it can be!
