(Yes, I stole this post title from another blog. but I can't remember which one. I think it was Possible Maybe.)
Here's Co's belly at 39 weeks. To me, she looks pretty big, but most folks don't believe she's due in a week:
Charlotte wants updates. The warm fuzzy update is that my job had a shower for me today. It was really fun and I was extremely touched. There was a cake with blue writing and plastic footballs, and they invited Co to come (to my surprise! it was all a surprise!) and everyone admired her belly. They made a betting pool for when she'd give birth.
No significant changes here, however. Yesterday's midwife visit went well but there are no indicators of when Flipper will be joining us.
I am feeling increasingly ready. (Yes, I'm impatient, but that's not necessarily the same as ready...) Our bags are partially packed, and I picked up supplies like arnica, lip balm, Luna bars, Gatorade. We have everything we need for labor, and for Flipper. We set up the P n' P where he'll sleep. Yesterday we went to a local crunchy baby store and The Sling Lady helped us try some on; we were please to find that we felt comfortable with the Maya wrap, and it fits us both. Tomorrow I start the next unit with my kids, the one I want to be able to start off before I go.
So whenever you're ready, little guy...
