Today I have 27 days left until this baby is due. When I break it down to a little over 4 weeks, the panic wells up a bit and my heart beats a little faster. For the last many months, I have carried this child around on the inside of me and although the weight of it all now has gotten a bit heavy, managing one child is doable. I am not sure what I will do with 2 kids. Don’t get me wrong, I am overly excited to meet this new little person….but somehow managing 2 seems like it could be just a tad overwhelming. Lately I have lost my wallet, only to realize it after the checker got all my groceries bagged…I hit a pole in the parking deck with my car for no apparent reason, and that is just the start of it. Where will my brain be when this next one arrives, if I even have one left. Gress
asked me yesterday if the baby was ready to come out and I said not yet and he said, can’t you just push it out. Seems he is more ready than me. On a side note, the baby is no where ready to be born (in my mind at least). Baby is facing head up or transverse (across my belly). The midwives are trying all their magic to get it to turn. Today I visit the chiropractor for the second time. Not sure what to think of that but we will see today what transpires. If nothing then the next action plan is to do handstands in the pool (for real). So please pray for baby to turn…soon! Thought you would enjoy some photos of what everyone talks about when they see me. The comments have ranged from, “how much longer can you walk,” to “that baby is coming out today.” I have tried to take it all in stride but I do occasionally say, “now was
that a compliment to a pregnant women”, and people just go on with more comments. The best question has been am I ready to have this baby….and the answer is not quite yet. Although the to do list has dwindled down, I still want sweet time with just Rad and Gress before life is a little different.
