i honestly don’t know how women do this – just sit around and wait for nature to take its course. i am simultaneously NOT READY and VERY READY for this baby to make her grand entrance. my house is not ready, but it’s on its way. my body is SO ready to not be pregnant anymore – i’ve been waking up in the middle of the night with stomach bile shooting up into my throat, which as you can imagine is tremendously pleasant. almost every moment of the day i am thinking either “please come soon!” or “please stay put just a little longer so mama and daddy can get x, y, or z done!”
since our first ultrasound (for dating, at what they thought would be 12 weeks/what was actually 8 weeks) we have been wondering if she would come on alex’s birthday, 9 days before her due date. his birthday was yesterday. no mazzy yet…
all is well in baby-land, anyway. up another half pound in the last week. no progress so far. beautiful blood pressure, iron level is rising, “good job, good job, good job.” just waiting, waiting, waiting.
taken at 38 weeks and 4 days
