Everything is going great, my energy is good. I have some sciatic nerve pain in my back but I am being careful to stretch and not over-do it. I also have taken to wearing a pregnancy support belt when I am working around the house so my every-growing belly doesn’t throw my alignment out of whack.
As the New Year approached, I found myself thinking about the upcoming year in very certain terms – I find myself thinking things like “this is the last time we’ll have Christmas with just two of us” or if someone mentions something that will happen during the upcoming year, I immediately file it in my brain in terms of whether or not the baby will be here yet! The big one will be Easter – it is 6 days before my due date, so I will be either caring for a newborn or be VERY pregnant!
It’s fun to wonder what the baby will be like when he comes – I find myself wondering for the first time who the baby will look like. He will most likely be TALL, but will he look more like one of us or a mix? Will he closely resemble someone else, like a grandparent? I remember when my little cousin was born, she was found out to look exactly like our grandfather looked as a baby – funny how things work out like that! I am getting so excited and eager to find out what our little man will look like and what kind of person he will be!
