Default Well, I'm officially a watermelon!

Or at least, the baby is one. It's the final stage of fruits.

I've been having crazy Braxton Hicks, my belly turns to a rock anytime I try to move. (The midwife says that this is a sign we'll probably go into labour sooner than later). Little one basically hangs out head down these days with his back along my left side, butt sticking out, and with feet kicking me regularly. He still moves around like crazy, just wiggling in that position.

Tomorrow is my last day at work. I'm really looking forward to having some time to get things done at home.

Just wanted to give you guys an update

The whole idea that there is a kicking, moving baby inside of you is just wild! I've always wanted to ask this.. but PLEASE don't be offended.. does it ever creep you out?.. like, there is a TINY PERSON INSIDE OF YOU!

Thanks guys

Dekka and Maf - I kind of miss the Banana phase! I was a heck of a lot smaller, more comfortable, and wasn't covered in stretch marks

Fran - I'm not offended at all! I completely freak out like that every now and then. Just stop and think "OH MY GOD I'VE GOT A BABY IN THERE!" At this point I don't entirely feel ready for a baby to welcome our life, but there isn't much choice! I also have moments of total fear. Kind of "There is going to be a CHILD. A child that WE are responsible for." I know we'll be fine, and I'm sure lots of people have these moments of freak-out!

You'll do fine. After all, you've got Sierra to help you with him

Hooray for Watermelons

yes the feeling of "not ready" is totally normal This is a HUGE life changing event... one of the best ones you will ever experience... but scary none the less lol. If you weren't questioning your readiness, that would worry me more lol.

HAHA about the creeped out thing. I remember being horizontal on the couch and lifting my shirt over my belly and just watching the body parts protrude and move around. it was like that scene in Alien lol. SO weird but SO cool.

Enjoy this last little while of him moving around inside if you love that feeling. (that was my favorite part) It will be soon that you won't be able to send him back. Hope you get lots done in the house and everything goes smoothly when the time comes and that you are filled with joy at his arrival. Good luck!
