Yes, you already knew that.
What I mean is that I’m in my 9th month of pregnancy and I feel every bit of it. Swollen feet, heartburn, waddling…the whole bit.
I had an OB appointment on Monday and big news is that they’ll induce me on the 21st. Nothing’s wrong, but having her on that day ought to put me back home by Christmas, even if there were a c-section. I was really sad about the idea of not spending Christmas with the girls if I went into labor. I’ll 39 weeks 1 day on the 21st. I had both Cate and Meg at 39+1; Cate was born on the first day of summer, and if everything goes as planned, this one will be born on the first day of winter. I think that’s pretty neat.
I’ve been busy, busy, busy doing what I can to prepare for the baby. I’ve been cooking extra and stocking meals in my freezer. Off the top of my head, I believe I have 11 meals stocked up. I’ll have to add a side dish here or there, but mostly that’s something like steaming a vegetable or cooking a pot of rice. Certainly better than take out or cooking a full meal from scratch.
I’ve started getting together the hospital bags, and arrangements have been made for the girls.
