It's hard to believe that, two weeks from right now, we will have met our new baby boy. I've been using the basketball season as my finish line. Perry is now officially done with reffing for the year (he just got to work the State B Boys Championship game!), and now we are officially in the home stretch. I'm currently 37 weeks and two days, with the C-section set for March 26th.
I'm very thankful that I've reached full term, something that used to be unattainable for us, as you can read about in this previous post. Today, we have one big, strapping three and a half year old, who is about to meet his little (BIG) brother!
It's been fairly smooth sailing for me during this pregnancy, except for some early (8 weeks) spotting that led to my doctor restricting my exercise to only walking. That was fine for a while, until I started to experience some nasty tailbone pain as the result of each walk. I've gotten some help from the chiropractor, but the unfortunate truth is that I've gained more weight this pregnancy than last because I haven't been allowed to exercise. Oh, and I was pregnant over Thanksgiving and Christmas. My mom is a good cook.
