I finally got to see my doc today, and she did just what I've been hoping for...bumped me up a week! So...thank goodness...now, I'm due 7/26 (she won't let me go past this date secondary to this ginormous thing growing in my belly). However, this now makes me 1 week less prepared...which isn't that big of a deal, considering I've done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! We haven't named the darn fellow, haven't bought Pres new furniture so that she can move up and he can move in, haven't bought him any bedding, etc. The only thing I have done is bought one little pair of overalls. So, at least he'll look cute in his blue overalls and pink socks ;) She also recommended I start prenatal yoga for my sciatica. Uh...if any of you know me at all, I'm not quite the yoga type. So, I'm thinking I'll just start some stretching in the mornings and evenings...or, at least that's what I say I'm going to do. She was also quite shocked at the massive amount of weight I'm gaining compared to last time...ok, not her words exactly...but, that's what she meant when asking questions like, "you eat pretty healthy, right?"..."what was your starting weight, again?"..."maybe you should stop eating girl scout cookies for breakfast"...you get the point. Anyway...the point of all this rambling is to express my joy of being 1 week closer to ending this misery. Here are some pics that remind me that it's all worth it...
loving the slide
finally learning how to smile for the camera
besides playing outside, reading is by far her favorite thing to do
