34 Weeks, 5 Days and Counting

He's the size of a Cantaloupe

Had my doctor appointment today. Not much to report, except that Little Leroy has his foot in his mouth. Literally. He’s a contortionist with his toes jammed up against his mouth and a hand behind his neck. And judging from his constant movement, he’s an acrobat too. He never sits still.

They estimate his weight to be 5 pounds, 11 ounces. So I’m on target to have around an 8-8 1/2 pound baby. I seriously don’t know how my stomach is going to stretch much more. I am really feeling the weight of this pregnancy. And the exhaustion. This is like the final stretch of a marathon–but one that as soon as you finish, you dive into a triathlon. It’s hard to know what to wish for: not being pregnant anymore or a few more precious weeks of decent sleep sans burp clothes and feedings.

I wish I could scan in the ultrasound picture, as it’s in 4-D and really pretty cool. But our scanner doesn’t work.

This may be the most uninteresting blog I’ve ever written. But I feel like a bowling ball and it’s the best I can do. Will post a pic of my huge belly later. Cheers.
