Welcome to the 3rd trimester!! I can't believe we only have 10 more weeks to go until the baby arrives. It really hit us last week that we are in the final stretch and time is going by so fast. It's hard to imagine life with a baby again, but he/she will be here before we know it. I have mixed emotions about this pregnancy nearing it's end; on one hand, I am so eager to find out what is brewing inside and can't wait for this baby making machine to be retired for forever. But, on the other hand, it is very sad to think that these are my last weeks of being pregnant ever again. Even with all the aches and pains, exhaustion and tiredness, I am trying my best to enjoy every moment because I know there will be times in the future that I will miss being pregnant. But, yes, hubby and I have come to a very mutual decision that a tubal ligation is best. Not only do we feel that our family will be complete once this one is born (no matter what the sex is), but my body needs to retire. Having 6 babies in just 5 1/2 years is enough for anyone!!
I had my 28 week check-up last week and everything went great. Baby is doing as he/she should and mommy is doing fantastic!! A little too fantastic according to Dr. Y! I guess he thinks I am trying a little too hard to have that perfect 9 months, so he thinks I should slow it down a bit before it all hits me all at once. It's not like I am running a marathon every weekend or anything, but I will make it a point to put my feet up more often and not worry so much about bleaching every corner of the house on a weekly basis =). After having triplets, I think being pregnant with one baby is a piece of cake!!
Our delivery date is scheduled for the 3rd week of May (I'll keep the date to myself due to privacy issues), but I am so happy to have a final countdown. I will be having another repeat c-section and I am praying things go a little better then last time. My boys are so excited to be in the waiting room, waiting for daddy to come out with the big news. Cameron is planning on whispering what the baby is in their ears and they will yell it out to all of our family! Too exciting!!!
Other then that, no other news. My doctor appointments are now every 2 weeks, so it should make this time go by a little faster. Can't forget the belly shot... this was last week and my belly has gotten HUGE!!! It seems very high to me too...
