With Spring blossoming and bursting from every corner, the world turning green and lush, how can we not be grateful and feel incredibly blessed that Nature keeps her promise?
Today it's raining, so I've been indoors with the doggies, cleaning and re-organizing like a mad-woman (I think I have a serious case of Nesting Syndrom). But as you can see from the photos, it's mostly been incredibly beautiful, with blue skies and trees foaming green and white.
I had a meeting with our midwife on Monday, and expressed to her my concerns about my (huge) belly; people have been making all sorts of comments, including the typical "are you sure there aren't two babies in there?" She reassured me that I have nothing to worry about as long as I feel fine (I do) and the baby is alright (I hope it is....and I believe it is). She told me I'm carrying high, and that I am probably going to stay this size for a while before experiencing another 'growth spurt.' She said that at this stage it's not an indication of how large the baby is, but rather if your uterus is more to the front or the back, low or high. Apparently I have a high uterus all the way to the front!
We've purchased the first few tiny onesies in neutral colors, and a cuddly receiving blanket. There is so much to do before the baby arrives in September, just thinking about it makes my heart race! All in due time...
As for boy or girl...we are hoping hoping hoping that our baby will cooperate and reveal itself at the ultrasound next Wednesday. We'll be so happy to be able to say 'he' or 'she' instead of 'it.'
Thank you all for your supportive comments on my little video interview! It wasn't easy to get in front of the camera like that, knowing my face is pale from winter and round from pregnancy. Hopefully Kiki stole the show! :)
Love to you all!
