Pregnancy-37 weeks

I'm officially considered full-term today, which I'm trying not to think about, because it still could be another four weeks or so. I found this week to be a bit emotional for me. Its completely frustrating to be talking with someone and just bust into tears. BUT, after a few rough days, I feel like I'm stabilized again.

This week I went through the clothes that have been loaned or passed down to us. I washed them up and folded them in the dresser after I rearranged the girls clothes to allow for the extra dresser. So, so strange to have blue and brown! Avery simply cannot get enough of going through everything and exclaiming how tiny and cute it all is. I wonder if I'll ever be able to pick out his clothes.

I'm enjoying the movement and having this baby all to myself. My doctor and I both agree that he is laying sideways instead of head down like he should be. This has been a good thing because his feet have not been up in my ribs and his head has not been putting pressure on my bladder (explaining why I never have to get up in the middle of the night). However, its not a good position for delivery. I go for an ultrasound on Monday to confirm his position and I guess we'll have some decisions to make based on that information. If you would, please breath a quick prayer that he cooperates and does what he is supposed to do.

Avery, my budding photographer, has been really into taking shots of her baby brother. She instructs me whether to have my shirt up or down and places my hands where she thinks they should be. The idea is there anyway!

Lisa, you look wonderful! I am happy for you and you look very ready for the baby! I remember with Sydney, I sort of had to remind myself that a whole new person was coming into our family! It didn't feel real until she was here. When you are busy with other children, I guess it doesn't really hit you until they are in your arms. Lucky little boy to have such a wonderful famiy!

I hope you get good news tomorrow and that your little guy turns upside down on his own!

Preparing for a baby is such hard work, and I was always weepy like you. Pregnancy brain does strange things to us.
