One Month To Go!

Since this is not a leap year, we don't get an exact month to go countdown so I'm going to claim today. I can't quite believe that I only have a month to go. At the same time I can't believe I have to be pregnant for another month. There are some women who are great pregnant. I am not one of them. I compare being pregnant to taking flight for a vacation. I don't go on vacation to fly on the plane, it's just a necessary inconvenience. I know some people like to fly, but I am not one of them. Same thing with pregnancy. I'm not having a baby to be pregnant (or go through labor) it's just what you have to do to reach the destination.

Two weeks ago (yeah, I know I'm behind) we went in for an ultrasound and everything's looking good. She measured 5 pounds 6 ounces and has turned so her head is down. She's not straight up and down so her butt is under my right rib and her head is by my left hip. She has not yet started to calm down so her movements are getting more and more serious. I think you can see some of the movements from space. She's still Daddy's little girl and will move for Matt whenever he touches my belly and talks to her.

I am packed for the hospital, the diaper bag is packed, and some of the clothes have been washed. We're getting close to being ready. Hopefully we'll be done in two weeks in case she decides to come early. We'll see.

Fourth Worst Snow Storm in DC History

I'm really done with the snow this year. There's a reason I don't live in Buffalo.

Please pardon my voice. I still have a little bit of the cold from last week.
