I haven't been keeping up with the DDC lately. My dear father-in-law passed away (somewhat unexpectedly) and with ALL the other house stuff going on, I don't have time to read or post anything lately.
It's a gorgeous and lazy Sunday though, and I am trying to enjoy the day!
DH has a bulging disc in his back, so not much renovating/remodeling has been going on. We hope to get a bunch done this week though. The house needs to be painted before it starts raining, to protect all the new siding we just put up. Flooring is 60% installed.
Anyways, I am getting SO SO SO excited to meet this new little person!!!! We are still searching names, and I am just *praying* we don't have a boy, because we are both completely stumped on the name front!
My ribs and upper abdomen are *killing* me, and are the most painful of any pregnancy so far. I think this baby will be our biggest one yet. Our biggest was 8 lb 6 oz., so I'm thinking at least that much this time.
And, so weird, I'm having this pregnancy-induced inner-ear problem that is driving me freaking NUTS. My right ear gets plugged every time I swallow, talk, eat, yawn etc.,. I bend over a million times a day to clear my ear. This is the worst pregnancy side-effect I've had to deal with. Worse than HG. Worse than separated pubic bones. The only remedy is, SURPRISE, *giving birth*. So yay, a few more weeks of this insanity.
There is so much more to be done to prepare for the birth and baby, and the days are ticking away like leaves falling off the trees right now!
