The Plan

I don't think it really hit me until today how close I am to having this little guy.  It was so weird to say "next month" to someone when asked when I was due.

I had my 34 week appointment today and measured a big 38 weeks.  And I FEEL 38 weeks!  The baby is probably around 5 to 5 1/2 pounds now, and is VERY active.  My doctor thought it was pretty funny when she went to feel the heart beat and the baby freaked out and started flailing his little limbs giving my belly the earthquake/ tidal wave effect.

We then looked at the calendar and started planning out this birth.  It so happens that spring break falls the week before my due date and I jokingly told my doctor that it would be really convenient to have it during spring break so Ben wouldn't miss any school.  She smiled and said, "We can work with that!"  Woo Hoo, wouldn't that be cool?

I am super excited to be reaching the end of this pregnancy and hold my little guy!  Yesterday the 3rd trimester spurt of energy kicked in and so I have been running around like crazy getting stuff done before the fatigue sets in again.

Can't wait to get my body back!  As soon as the babe is born and I get past those first 6 weeks of no exercise, I am going to make the goal to start training for a 1/2 marathon at the end of the summer!  Who's with me?
