Less than 8 weeks to go until our Little One arrives. We are so excited...I just hope that these last weeks don't drag on too much.
So a little update on things:
I really feel great! I can't complain about much. My energy level is a little lower than usual, but I guess that is to be expected. I have cut another 500 yards from my swimming routine, which was definitely necessary. I feel so incredibly slow in the water. Even the guy that is always guarding at the pool noticed it. The suit hickeys are becoming larger and more painful. Hmmm....you would think that I would get the hint to get a bigger suit.
Work is still going well. I am in the OR at least twice a week, and I really don't have any problems. It's just that I notice that I can't reach as far across the patient when I am prepping and draping the abdomen...especially when it's a LARGE abdomen.
I passed my glucose tolerance test with flying colors, and all other numbers (weight gain, fundal height, blood pressure, fetal heart rate, etc.) are all making my doctors very happy, which of course makes John and me very, VERY happy. Weight gain is about 22 pounds so far, but I have a feeling that is going to start accelerating very soon.
As per Sarah's request, here is a belly shot for you all:
This picture definitely doesn't do my boobs justice because they are HUGE! My attire is not very becoming, I am aware. But I was in the middle of cleaning and laundry and noticed that my belly was especially protrusive today. So I thought that I would take advantage of the view.
Everyone I encounter gives me their predictions for the sex of the baby, which is entertaining at times. Even Gabi gets in on it. She said that her Aunt Car was having a baby boy up until a few weeks ago. Now all she says that it is going to be a baby girl and her name is going to be Anna Lydia (which is the name of a little girl in her dance class). She is a funny one.
Feel free to share with me your predictions!
