It's That Time Again

On Sunday I started feeling a little more nasty than usual, pregnancy-wise.  I couldn't for the life of me figure out what had happened so suddenly to make me so much more miserable.  My most (least) favorite part is the feeling that I'm wearing a corset that goes from my bra band to my hips.  Yeah, especially the fact that none of my bras fit around anymore.  Sigh.  Anyway, I did a little math and figured out why I became so uncomfortable so quickly: 34 weeks.  I remember the feeling of being done with pregnancy when there were six weeks left to the due date.  It's like flipping a switch.  Apparently it holds true even when you don't realize you've reached that milestone. Now I have just over a week until I find out how dilated I am.  Last time it was 4 centimeters.  This time I know better than to think that means the baby will come early.

As a side note, there are still decisions to be made and stuff to do.  We still have chosen a spelling for the baby's name, nor have we even given much thought to a middle name.  Two days ago I realized we don't have a car seat for this kiddo.  That's kind of important.  They don't let you take the baby home from the hospital without one.  I also need to finish sewing the crib bedding.  It should be a fun five weeks to come.

what you feel is but natural. I appreciate your present mood that is essential for your kid. Rest will be ok.
