I can't imagine having a blog if you didn't have children. Just what would you talk about? George and I had our check up yesterday and everything is progressing! Doc said I look great (supposedly I lost a pound and a half the past 2 weeks, but like how he nicely threw in, "...but we won't talk about the 7 lbs. you gained last time." haha.) At this point, don't care...my son is almost here! Baby's head is down and in my pelvic bone and I'm 40% effaced. Need to know what that means? I suggest google.com :) and I'm also sitting at a -2. Brief description: scale is roughly 3, 2, 1, 0, -1, -2, three being wow! I can see the head poking through and -2, you're definitely not in labor. However, doc did say the little guy just may show up a couple days early. Let's hope so! I would love to see a doctor's prediction turn out just right!

Not much to report on my end, hence, no recent blog. I had a doctor's appointment this past Wednesday and everything is on track. I haven't been feeling very well the past couple weeks either. Alot alot of back, hip, knee and ankle pain and I have some bad cramping going on. I'm not sleeping well and sometimes is really difficult to even walk. I addressed these issues with the doctor and he says, "Oh it will go away real soon." So I perk up a bit and said, "Can I get an eta please?" He says, " After delivery." Lovely. This boy better come on time. Doc says I look good though and baby looks good. He "thinks" I'll have a good sized baby...not 6 lbs, but not 10 lbs either, he's guessing around 8lbs. We'll see though...it is just a prediction. Baby's head is down too, gettin' in line for the big day I suppose, but on the other end, he likes to shove his feet up under my ribs and just hang out, ouch. I'm pretty sure he knows I don't like it, but still tries to do it. Everytime I feel it, I push him out and after awhile all of a sudden there it is again...it's very gradual like he's trying to do it without me noticing. Yeah right. He's been moving too everyday so we haven't had anymore scare about an inactive baby. It seems as though he'll only move for George or I. Was that good english? I'm not sure...but anyways, he has yet to impress any of my friends or other family members, especially my mom. Sometimes he'll move and I'll announce it and then someone will try and look and feel and then he won't do it again...at least, not until that person leaves and it's just me and him...definitely the quiet type.

I almost forgot! Our luck...our tickets were right smack in the middle of the row, so either way we had to walk over 20 people on either side and I ended up smacking a guy in the head with my baby bump as I was trying to get to my seat. I tried to apologize, but don't think he was happy. Needless to say, I stayed put the whole concert.

George and I had a fun filled day today...George was working hard at work as usual and I took time to meet my friend Lisa for lunch, ran some errands, then spent time with my friend Anne before George and I headed out for our weekly childbirth class at Overlake. All was well until our teacher asked us at the beginning of class, "Did anyone visit the doctor this week?" Oh yes...I raise my hand and proceed to tell her the drama of yesterday. So of course, she asks, "So have you felt the baby move today?" By which, I responded, "Uh no I haven't." So homegirl gets this worried look on her face and tells George and I that we need to go back to labor and delivery and tell them to re-check me. I'm thinking, oh yeah ok, but then realize she means right this second so I say, "Oh...like right now?" And she says yes. So here we go again. Back in the labor room, we got hooked up to the monitors and as before, baby was a movin' and a rollin'. Basically doing everything but sitting still. I think he tries to swim away from the monitors but hasn't realized he doesn't get anywhere. So the nurse monitored me for about a half hour and then released me back to class. This time, she tells me I need to start proactively looking for the movements and push pretty hard on my tummy to see if I can get him to move at home and if I dont feel him by tomorrow evening, I have to go back again. I think George and I are going to start collecting our copies of the release forms from the hospital. So far...we are up to 3 of them. We are also going to try putting earphones on my tummy and have him listen to music. Some other lady in our class says she has her baby listen to Classical music every night and he moves. I'm not sure who would move to Classical music, but ok. I suggested to George perhaps a different genre in which he replied, "What other kinds of music are there?" Really? Oh George....
