Is today the day you’re going to be born? You’re now in Virgo territory.
We went to the OB Tuesday, 08/21, and I was convinced that was going to be your birthday. He ‘disturbed’ the zone and the rest of the day I was filled with some cramping and Braxton-Hicks contractions so I thought yep, this was it! But alas, all you did was drop a little bit so I could eat some more and you’re still comfy.
Thank you for being so awesome these last 39+4 weeks and especially the last few weeks staying put while we found a new place to live and settle in. I’m sure you miss our old place but with this one you’ll have so much more room.
This entire pregnancy I was convinced you are a girl. Maybe because I feel like God wants me to experience what it’s like for a Mother-Daughter bond. I thought that when I was pregnant with your brother as well so who knows? But remember this pregnancy was different- I had more nausea for the entire first trimester, craving more spicy things (and I didn’t consider them spicy), a lot more crankiness and irritability and some more weight gain (32 pounds). Everyone else also wishes that we have a girl as well. Are you a girl or boy?
And then I thought, what if you’re a boy? I will be super excited for that as well. Either way, we win! And there’s nothing I’d want to change or be able to change at this point.
Thank you for growing so heathily and these last few weeks, having me wake up every 2-hours and staying up since 5am so we could practice being up to eat. You’re keeping me on my toes.
Even though I don’t feel ready, I am so excited to see you!!! I promise to try my best at being the best mom to you and Jacob. Maybe today’s the day! If not today, for sure tomorrow? We’re going to get induced at 8:30am tomorrow. I hope everything goes okay with your brother when we drop him at Eemoh’s house. Let’s pray for him as well. We’ve been eating yummy gelato and other delicious treats as we walk around and try to get you moving.
