This is the question I posed to your father after a particularly long day at work and some excessively swollen feet and ankles. His response: he casually glanced over in the direction of my feet and somberly says, “No, where are they?” To which we both cracked up!
Unfortunately, my ankles and feet have been rather swollen the past few days…without much reprieve. On top of that, my lower back has been hurting pretty badly…not so much all over, more like a sharp shooting pain on one side. Still feeling pretty lucky all things considered.
We had our last two baby classes this weekend: car seat basics and breastfeeding. We actually learned quite a bit in both classes. We’ve even got your car seat base installed in my car now; we’ll just get the professionals to check it to make sure it’s installed correctly. We are going to Babies R Us next weekend to have pregnancy pics made so that should be fun. The hospital bag is pretty much packed and I even bought my first nursing bra today. We’re getting close…
Your grandma Luli is planning to go with us to the doctor for your sonogram on April 28th. It will be a lot of fun for her to get to see you and all the fun things you do to pass the time in my tummy. Your movements have slowed down quite a bit over the past couple of weeks….judging from the looks of my belly button, I think it’s safe to say you are probably running out of room to stretch out in there.
Oh, speaking of your grandparents, Tery and Sue got married! After almost 20 years of living as a married couple without the title, they decided to make it official! They are going to have a celebratory cookout the weekend of May 1st which should be a lot of fun.
