We can officially count the number of weeks left in this pregnancy on one hand. Most of the time that still seems so far away; 10 weeks, that is 2 ½ months people! But every so often I find myself thinking “Holy crap… what have I gotten myself into?! She is going to be here any day now and we are absolutely NOT prepared to be parents.” (Which of course is true, but I shouldn’t be thinking that way.)

I hadn’t had any problems with being all hormonal and emotional (I think… I guess we should probably ask Christian about that) but lately I will just be staring at my slightly pulsating belly or Christian and start tearing up and I just feel like sobbing.

On the good side of things Baby Girl is still very active (though I don’t understand how, given the very limited space she has). And I’m pretty sure I passed my second Glucose Test (aka the Lets-see-how-many-times-a pregnant-lady-can-handle-
We also found a glider! Finally. I have been checking Craigslist for the longest time and haven’t really come across anything good. But we finally got one this week. Now we just want to paint the chair and cover the cushions with something slightly less ugly and stained… and I will remember to take pictures to show you the AMAZING transformation… hopefully.
