Seems like things are moving right along.  Can’t believe I am down to 9 weeks to go (sooner if I get induced).

I am happy to report my feet have gone back down to “normal.”  I put normal in quotes because they still plump up a bit because of water retention, but not like they did during the road trip.

I will see the doctor this Friday for a regular check up and then next Tuesday we start the twice a week appointments.  It will be interesting to see what those are like.

Baby boy has been active a lot more.  Well, I should say when he is active, HE IS ACTIVE.  The other morning as I was still trying to sleep, it felt like he was swimming laps in my uterus.  I definitely feel him more at the top of my uterus and less at the bottom, so hopefully that means he is staying in the right position for birth.  At least I will get weekly ultrasounds to be able to tell if he stays that way or if he decides to go breech.

Belly seems to be getting rounder.  At least that is what it looks like to me.  Check out my bump photos and tell me what you think.

Other that that, not too much else going on.

Oh I had to share something with you.  When we were on the road trip and stopped in St. Louis visiting my parents., one of their neighbors kids stopped by.  She was not a fan of dogs, we had Buddy there and so we put him in the crate and she came in to check him out.  It went well and she petted him a littl and he licked her fingers.  She was not ready for him to be loose.  Which is wise.  He is so sweet, but he gets to excited meeting new people and wants to jump and I am sure that would have freaked her out.  I think she was 8 or 10 years old.

Anyway, the point of this is that my mom took her in the kitchen so she could wash her hands and my mom mentioned to her that I was having a baby.  She asked my mom how old I was.  She told her 40.  The girl replied, “I thought she was in high school.”    Made my day.  I know kids aren’t always able to tell age too well, but I will take what I can get!  🙂
