This is really IT!
Had my check up yesterday @38 5/7 weeks (I thought it was my 40th week already. Bad math, bad memory).
Everything is looking normal but the little creature is not so little anymore. Yaiks! I was concerned that we weren’t really growing all that much so I’ve been stuffing my face with chocolate, cakes, coffee (decaf), coke, frito lay products lately. Yeah, I hadn’t grown (cheeks chubbied up a little but other than that, I’m still skinny with a big ball of a belly) but the monster baby sucked up all the foodie and the vitamins and look what happened to him.
Doc says that I could have had him released from his clammy sac last week via a bikini cut. She even wanted me to have it by this Friday! But we (plus the council of elders[parents]) have decided to do the c-section on the 17th! That’s days away! And I’m not prepared! I’m really going to be a mom to a yet unnamed baby!
Here’s no name baby (those cheeks are definitely mine!):
He doesn’t have his toes poking his eyes anymore but now, because the space is so cramped, the placenta is covering his other eye.
