Another little one!
Congrats Melanie. Can't wait to hear the birth story and name.
I think you're right Lynsey. Most have been in the 6-7+ pound range. I don't think we've had one that was 8+ pounds yet. Though several have been going early too. Unless I go early (which hasn't been my MO
I seem to like the due date) I expect to have an 8 pounder, both Tori and Jack were within a couple of ounces +/- of 8.
My mom called me yesterday to "chat". See how I was doing. She wanted to know how my last appointment was etc etc. She wants me to have Radish about the 8th. Because she's already paid for her plane ticket to VA (her greyhound conferance) and hotel room for the 16th. She is CONVINCED I'll have him on the 8th... yeah sure thing Mom whatever. Why would she think I would go early? And to tell you the truth, I DON'T want him to come on the 8th. David has to go back up to Austin on the 7th (everyone who is deploying leaves the 8th) and he has regular monthly drill that weekend also Sept 10-12 so he's going to stay in Austin. WHY would I WANT to go into labor with him gone???
She just kept saying "I think you should have him on the 8th so I can be there..."
YK Mom if you were REALLY concerned about wanting to be there for his birth... you wouldn't be going across the country within days of his due date now would you?? Yeah Mom, it's all about YOU.
We joined the local YMCA the other day. We spent a part of the afternoon at the pool today. OOOOH it was heavenly. A little bit chilly since it was so overcast. But OMG is was so nice to get into that water... and not ache. My back didn't hurt, my pelvic bone didn't hurt, my muscles didn't hurt... until I had to get out and then gravity started to work again.
It was so nice to just float.
I had to go buy another swimsuit since I can't find the one I bought in June.
Couldn't find a maternity one that was close to my size so I got a size 18 (eek I'm usually a 8-10) Speedo at Academy. I figure I'll use it a lot in the coming months while I try to get rid of the pregnancy weight. And we do plan to put both Tori and Jack into swim classes in the next couple of weeks or so. Definitely Tori.
This weekend should be really interesting. MIL is taking BOTH kids this weekend.
She's taken Tori for a couple of days before. Tori LOVES to go an visit her. Mary lives down in Clear Lake near the water. Tori LOVES the water. This will be the first time that Jack has gone though. She's taken care of him before but not actually overnight away from us. She's stayed with us when we've gone out for an evening and she'll get up with him if he wakes up at night (which isn't often anymore
) and first thing in the morning. But it will be the first time he's spent the night away from us. I'm trying to be strong.
(my little baby!! he's getting so big) She's picking them up tomorrow afternoon and bringing them back Monday morning. It will be very weird to be alone with David for almost 2 days. We haven't been totally alone in almost 3.5 years. :LOL Of course I'm as big as a house so that will make it a little more ackward.
We already plan to see 2 movies. Hero and Vanity Fair. Who knows when we'll get to see another movie out again... at least 4-6 months. :LOL Depending if Radish will take a bottle or not. Jack REFUSED to take a bottle, EBM or formula. Wouldn't have anything to do with them. Only direct from the tap.
:LOL About your DH thinking this is going to be "fun". :LOL Only men.
I need DH to paint my toesnails. I spent an hour the other night getting all the old red polish off so it's time to do a new coat. I don't think I'd be able to do it myself anymore. :LOL
Every 1.5 hours.
So did scrubbing up the exploded watermelon kick in the ctx or is Sprout still happy to hang out where s/he is?
I hope Francis passes by you. We've been SOOO lucky so far this year. We haven't had any of the Hurricanes come close to us... yet.
