I’m now 35 weeks pregnant, and can’t believe how quickly time has flown! Buster (as I’m calling him for the moment, but no, that won’t be his “real” name) is quite vigorous, with a lot of moving around. As he runs out of room in there, the jabs and somersaults have turned into pretty firm motions as he drags his butt or an elbow or something across my belly. And I think I had my first Braxton-Hicks contraction this evening.
My friend/coach Angela and I went to childbirth class a few weeks ago, and I learned a lot about the process and what to expect, and got a tour of the hospital where I’ll be delivering. My doctor is pleased with my health and Buster’s, so everything appears to be on track! I still have a lot to do in the nursery, in terms of organizing and putting away the tons of clothes I’ve received from my so very generous friends and co-workers. I hope that once that is done, I’ll be able to write some of the retrospective blog entries about my journey through the fertility process and the decisions I made leading up to the amazing day that is coming very soon!
Here are a few photos from the last five weeks:
