I am not sleeping well at all. He moves way too much!! Now I can actually feel his elbows and knees and feet because he has no more room! I can't believe that he is going to grow more, I don't think my body can take it! I have a final exam on Saturday and really have to start studying but it is so hard when you are not focused on school what-so-ever. Don't the professors understand that I am having a baby??!? :)

Papa Ken

I had another prenatal appointment with Maura today, the student midwife Theresa was also there. Everything is still textbook. Maura thinks that I will deliver at 41 weeks. So that is still a little while to go!
I am having braxton hicks regularly and my back is just KILLING me! Today was especially hard as it was Christophers Grandfathers 90th birthday today and dinner was 4 hours long. Too long for a pregnant woman!!
We have to start getting out stuff together as the baby will be here in no time at all. Hospital stuff, labour stuff, baby stuff.
The save the date invites went out last week and I am just waiting on the invites from Tricia for the baby shower...then Voula and my mom and I can start planning.

Little By Little

Yesterday I had the biggest cramp right in my cervix. Maura (my midwife) told me that he is now head down and ready to go, so Toby (my other midwife) said that it is perfectly normal to feel some pressure or grating on my cervix as he gets ready to be born. I hope not too much more as that really hurt!
Chris is thinking about keeping a stray dog that he found at work and I am not sure how that will work with the family dynamic with only 8 weeks to go.
Im getting so excited but also soooo impatient because I am so uncomfortable all the time..
The baby shower is comming up so I can't wait for that, I miss being social with people. (And no one will be mad at me for talking about babies because it's a baby shower!!)

9 Weeks Left

Only 9 weeks to go. We finally got the baby furniture all set up. Chris had a wicked sore throat but he did it anyways! What a trooper! We had our prenatal with Maura who told me to stop weighing myself everyday and not to care about what people say about my size. (That Im too small, and therefore starving the baby). She wants me to drink this disgusting protien shake 3 times a day...(let's start with just one, shall we)...because I don't eat enough veggies. Other than that, the baby is perfect. Heartbeat at 140 and textbook in size.

10 weeks left!!

Well only 10 weeks to go to my due date!! I am so excited and anxious and impatient all at the same time!!! I wish my furniture would just get here already. And I wish that he could be born, so I could hold him and play with him. I have been having wicked back pain and I had a massage to try and fix it, but alas, only made it bearable...69 days to go...

Braxton Hicks

I can not believe the amount of Braxton Hicks that I have been having! They feel like a tightening all around my belly and then he kicks like mad. Which is a good thing, although it does hurt when he does it non stop.
We had our Birthing From Within class last night and talked about labour and what to do when I "lose it" and feel like I can't take it anymore. Hopefully it won't be that bad...sometimes people make it seem like labour is the worst thing in the world....if that was the case why would people do it in the first place? And why would a woman go though it more than once???
