5 more days

I can't believe it's already December 18th and it's been so long since my last update. I'm currently 37 weeks and 2 days along - I weighed myself this morning and I've gained 2lbs so far. I did lose around 10lbs at the beginning so I've actually gained back about 12lbs. I have a big red quilted winter jacket and you can't tell at all that I'm pregnant when I'm wearing it. One of my big fears was that I would not be in control of my eating while pregnant and would gain all kinds of weight. Weirdly, I haven't gone crazy, but I've basically eaten whatever I wanted and this is where I am. I was very heavy to begin with, so I'm not supposed to gain a lot and Little G is right where she's supposed to be so I feel pretty good about things.

My c-section is Thursday Dec 23rd, so it's fast approaching. Today we are going out to buy the final stuff for my hospital bag and stuff for the nursery. I am doing the last load of baby clothes as I'm typing this - still have a few stuffed toys to do. And, have to sterilize the pacifiers we bought. Little by little we're getting where we're supposed to be.

All of our Christmas shopping is done and the tree is up, our cards are all mailed out. One thing this baby has forced us to do is be a lot more organized.

I'm very nervous about the surgery. I don't know how I'll react to the pain meds and I'm worried about recovery. I've got more to say, but have to run.

More later...

I've been thinking about you, wondering how you all were doing! I'm so glad baby girl has kept baking in there so well!

I'm with you - big to begin with, and I lost a bit in the first five months while I was so sick. Now I'm up 11 lbs. Hopefully I can keep it steady now!

Less than a week to go! It's so exciting!!

Thinking of you! I'm sure your daughter is here by now, and I hope all went well.
