I've been measuring right on track this whole time, but just this week and last week I've had people at work ask, "hey, are you pregnant?" One of the people who asked last week was a secretary who sits right by the elevators and coffee room, so I must walk past her at least
6-8 times a day, every day, throughout this entire pregnancy. She said, "I didn't even notice until this week, you must've just popped." Uh, yeah, I guess. lol.
But I'm tall, like you (5'8") and on top of that I have a long torso, so there was plenty of room for the uterus to grow up
before it grew out
. I definitely don't *look* 8-9 months pregnant in a stereotypical way.
As for patience, I'm sooo ready to be done with work for now, I'm still burning the candle at both ends and I'd like a break. On the other hand, I'm not ready for the baby to come (so much left to do!), so I'm not impatient for that yet.
The good news here is that baby flipped head down almost a week ago, and (knock on wood) has stayed that way so far! Everytime he starts wiggling, though, I start to worry he's going to flip back to breech, but so far he's behaving himself. DH and I pretty much settled on a name this weekend (yay!) and we had a nice meeting with our doula this week. Most of the construction we were having done on our house is complete, so we can now start getting things in order and getting the baby's nursery ready. DH finished the major exam he had been studying so much for, and he thinks it went ok (won't know the results for a couple weeks). And I'm still feeling pretty good, only slightly huge and narcoleptic. So, things are shaping up ok.
I just totally can't believe that this baby is going to be here in about a month (my EDD is the 15th). That blows my mind. With DD, the pregnancy seemed to drag on FOR-EV-ER, but this time it feels like I just got pregnant a little while ago and it couldn't possibly be almost October already.
