34 Weeks Pregnant, All is Well

Its been an eventful pregnancy. Most of it imagined and emotional; the fear of early miscarriage. The larger fear of a second trimester miscarriage. I have stressed about killing the baby after spending an active day at Disneyland. I also entertained the irrational fear of the baby being a hermaphrodite and my most recent concern was about having a c-section because the baby was breech.

Here I am at 33 weeks pregnant and just recently had an ultrasound. The whole family came to see the baby and the kids were thoroughly unimpressed. Our doctor kindly avoided all girl or boy parts so we will be surprised in just a few week. We saw the baby head down at approximately 5 pounds with a nice big head just waiting to deliver. I have passed all of my tests with flying colors. So we went home and celebrated! We bought a new car seat and a new stroller. I have written up a labor and delivery plan including childcare for my older two kids. In 2 more weeks we will install the car seat in the car, buy a dresser, and get the newborn clothes out and washed.

I really feel like this is going to happen! Of course when I tell my friends this they aren't surprised. They knew it would end happily. So now all we need to do is wait and wonder. Will my water break like the last two times? Will this baby be as impatient as the rest of the family and surprise us in July. I certainly hope so. I'm getting tired of being fat.
