37 Weeks

Is is possible for the baby to be moving UP this late in pregnancy? It sure feels like it. A week ago it felt like this baby was going to fall out if I sneezed. And now it seems she has taken a liking to being WAY up in my ribcage.

Why now, baby? I had a wonderful 8 months of almost zero rib kicking. (Such a nice change from your sister!) Of course my internal organs feel like they have become minced meat, but my ribs? They were doing good. I could breathe okay and I never had to try to dislodge whatever random body part was trying to break my ribs.

Until the doctor did that ultrasound last week and discovered that you are not the ginormous monster your sister was and he would not be inducing me at 38ish weeks. That did not mean you were not welcome to come out at that time! In fact, I would be THRILLED to have you come out before your due date. I'd love to know what it feels like to have "tiny" baby around 8 pounds.

And yet, it feels like your head has dislodged and your feet are clinging to my ribcage for dear life.

It's not that bad out here!

I promise you!

Yes, it will be cold and bright and I'm sure a little bit scary but I promise you that you'll like it out here! And I will be much more comfortable, hopefully in a lot less pain, and (at least after the first week or so) a generally sane person again.

So please baby, please, return to your nice, low position and start considering making your entrance.

Mommy would really appreciate it! (And so would your daddy and your sister and anybody else who puts up with me on a daily basis!)

Snow in Texas!

We didn't get a whole lot of snow here yesterday, but we got enough to bundle Audrey up and let her see it. Despite the wrestling it took to get her gloves on her, she had a blast! And it was snowing harder than it looks... The snow just doesn't show up well on this camera. And of course the flakes were bigger and fluffier right before we got out there and right after we came inside. Oh well :-)
