Pregnancy at Term - the home stretch

Today as I'm watching the closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics on TV (what an interesting 2 weeks), Finn is officially "at term" and probably somewhere between 6 1/2 and 7 pounds - but lets say closer to 6 1/2 shall we? The belly has stretched out even more and my belly button is just about to pop - finally!! I still don't have stretch marks or cankles, but fear not, I still have 3 weeks to go (lets hope not 4)!

Will is off to the US for a *quick* business trip and will be back this Friday to wait out the final weeks until Finn decides he would like to make his appearance. It made me a bit nervous that Will was leaving but Finn seems rather comfortable right up against my ribcage so that I don't think he is coming any earlier than September.

Again I do have to marvel at this baby brain thing. I am in my own la la land am going with the flow (totally unlike me). Granted, I have had my moments of weakness and hormone overdrive that has lead to some whining on my part, but figure that will be short-lived once the kiddo shows up. It will ALL be worth it - isn't that what everyone says - I say I just won't have time for that as I will be in "spoiling the kid" mode and "trying to find sleep time for mama" mode.

Enjoy those last few weeks! Don't laugh, you will miss being pregnant once he is here. It's true! How can we get a baby present to you? Is there any way to do a gift card you can use there? I am so excited for you both. Parenthood is the best...until they're toddlers.

Oh I have heard I'll miss being pregnant - right now I know where he is ALL THE TIME! :)

No worries about gift cards, etc... they don't do those much in China yet. I'm sure what I'll need most is mama and baby advice! I will probably not be back in Austin until next summer - yikes! But hope we can all get together then!
