Gak! I realized today when someone asked that my due date is exactly two weeks from today. Holy cow! All the truly necessary stuff is done. I would like to get the house cleaner, I'm behind on some work projects, and there are a number of other tasks that I'm really hoping to finish before the babe makes an appearance, but if the kid were to show up tonight, we'd be okay. At least I think so....
I think I've been having some non-crampy BH's, my tummy's been a little wonky, and I'm waddling even more now than I was a week ago, but other than that, I've seen no sign that the baby is ready to come out. For now I'm thinking that I'll probably make it to at least 39 weeks, which would be good. The MW says that the baby feels like 5.5 - 6 lbs, and has tons of room to move around in my uterus. But I can't tell where the little sucker is most of the time. I felt really stupid about this, until my MW said she's not entirely sure, either. She's confident that the baby is head-down, but everything else is vague guesses because of all the extra room in my uterus. By now DD was wedged in tight and unable to move, so this feels weird to me.
Life in general is good. We're done with all our official social engagements for the time being, so now we can focus on the house and each other until babe arrives.
I'm getting more and more nervous about helping DD transition to life as a big sister. Having lots of guilt about taking away her place as the only focus of our lives.
I know that in the long run she'll be better off for having a sibling, and possibly even for having one so close in age, but right now I'm not feeling that she's really ready for this change and that makes me feel like a super crappy mom. Sigh. This too shall pass, I know.
Hope everyone is feeling good this evening!
