5 weeks Left!
But technically as of today, only 4 weeks 5 days.
Oh my. Gah.
I cannot believe another year is over, and that within the next month (fingers and toes crossed) I’ll be holding my little man.
What a long journey.
First I lost 6, then I gained it back, then I lost 3, then I gained 1.
And with all that said, and no numbers on the scale to show for it, I actually think this is going to be a big baby.
He feels huge.
Average size: 17.2-18.7 inches, 4.2-5.8 lb
Now, his hearing is fully developed, and he responds best to high-pitched noises. If it’s a boy, his testes have probably fully descended.
beer. beer. beer.
O’Douls has become my best friend.
HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
I love the holidays, but I am so happy and relieved that they are behind us for another year.
I’m also so excited to be starting a new year, I feel like 2013 is going to be the best one yet!
LOW POINT OF THE WEEK:
Also, yesterday at my dr’s appointment one of the drs (there are 5 in the office that deliver) told me if I were to try and labor at home, I was putting my baby at risk (guilt trip much?) and when I explained I wanted to do it natural and didn’t want to be tempted by pain medication he responded, ” What kind of women wouldn’t want an epidural?”
I could go on and on about all the negative comments I’ve heard just from saying the words “I want a natural birth” and it saddens me. But, it also motivates me. For some reason our society has gotten to a point that believes women cannot handle birth on their own. I feel the complete opposite and cannot wait to prove to myself that I am strong enough to do just that.
LOOKING FORWARD TO:
Finishing everything for the baby and waiting for the big day!
