pregnancy update

This one if for a couple of my gal pals who live far away and have been asking me about this pregnancy ticker thing at the top of my blog... for some reason, it does not show my true pregnancy status. I am actually 35 weeks along, about two behind the ticker. I have tried to fix it but I am so not a computer whiz that I can't figure it out. Anyway, I am due on Dec. 16th, maybe, my docs aren't sure. I hope to be ready around the 10th-20th. Sometime in there. I do not know if peewee is a boy or a girl and I have no inclination either way. I feel it could be one or the other on any given day. That's the fun of being surprised I guess! This pregnancy is very different from my other two so I can't even compare that way! I think it is because I was totally not in shape at the beginning, which has made everything that much harder along the way. I bought diapers today (size 1, not newborn, since my kids are always big) and I think that is the last thing I "needed" before he/she decides to make his/her big debut. We do not have names picked out, well I do, but my husband does not agree! Zoe wants a sister, Parker wants a brother (but mostly he doesn't want a baby, "I'm da baby, momma" he tells me) so either way, one of them is pissed forever. I have Braxton Hicks contractions all the time, I am an emotional wreck, giant spider veins have taken over my legs, I can't see my feet, I can't bend over without grunting, I have boobs the size of watermelons, but other than that, all is well. We're getting ready, my body says it is done, but my mind, not so much. I am just a teeny bit terrified of having another newborn but I can say I am anxious to hold him/her. I do love that protective feeling of having them in my tummy for as long as I can, just to make sure all is well. So until the big day, everyone keep your fingers crossed for me that my water doesn't break in the middle of the grocery store while Parker and Zoe are running through the aisles (my reoccurring nightmare).

Thank you for the update Jen. No worries girl-they have new procedures for veins :) I'll be signing myself up when it is all done and said. Kristin will take care of you at the store-and it probably won't gush-no clean ups in isle 4!
