I'm not sure how there is possibly room in there for him to grow for another five weeks! His movements are downright painful! Hopefully that's an encouraging sign of a healthy active baby!
Went to the midwife this past week and everything is looking stellar. I've gained 26 lbs so far which is a bit more than I wanted at this point but nowhere close to excessive. Belly measured 34 cms and I was 34 weeks so right on track there too. Heartrate was 138 with accelerations to high 140's when he moved so that's wonderful too. I ended up taking four of the kids with me and the midwife let them help out. Hailey got to measure my belly and Christian got to listen for the heartbeat; they were in awe! We are planning to have them all in the delivery room with us; it will be a really neat and I think spiritual experience. We've all been through so much this past year and to be able to share the birth of our last family member together like that I'm hoping will just bring us together that much more.
There's been a really nasty stomach virus going around that I'm desperately hoping to avoid, people are vomiting every 20 minutes for DAYS. Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself by saying something about it!
New year's was nice. Craig doesn't drink and of course I had no need to be in a bar so we stayed home and had a couple of friends over and played cards. It was a lot of fun. Here's to a happy, healthy 2007!
