I’ve not been posting as well as I should be, but what can I say? Life is hectic.
The past month plus has been going really well, considering. The baby is happy and healthy and BIG. I had a couple of growth ultrasounds. At 29 weeks, Wicket weighed about 3.5 lbs, and now at 34 weeks, weighs in at a whopping 6 lbs! We’re looking at about the 76th percentile for size and weight. I guess we’ve quelled any concerns about my problematic placenta getting lots and lots of nutrition to the baby. The Boy and I have taken to referring to Wicket as GIANT BABY!!. At this rate, I’m afraid of delivery. 😉 One day at a time, though. People are starting to place bets on whether or not I’ll go early.
Last weekend was my baby shower. It was a great time. I was worried about the weather, but things worked out perfectly and it was a true party where the wine flowed and a good time was had by all. Of course, I was humbled by the generosity of our family and friends. With that behind me, I feel like I’m in the home stretch… all that’s really left is baby-having.
Here’s a picture of the present opening extravaganza:
The Boy got nearly the whole nursery together. He spent his entire February break getting the house in order for the baby shower. We held it at our house, since it was the most party-friendly, non-restaurant venue available. I’ll post some pictures once it’s all done.
Physically, I’m doing fairly well considering. Don’t get me wrong, I move at a snail’s pace and have the requisite aches and pains. I’m sleeping fairly well, though, although I sometimes wake up not able to move right away. I started seeing a chiropractor last week, which has been a huge help. My sciatica has subsided, and things are much more tolerable. I own the fact that it’s all downhill from here, but I’m just trying to make as smooth of a ride as possible.
Right now, I’m freaking out about everything I have to do between now and the coming of the Wicket. I have a ton of things to do to wrap up stuff for work, in addition to all of the baby-related stuff. Yikes!
