thirty thirty thirty five. last week.
This baby burrito moves! Matt thinks it looks like he's trying to break out, and reminds him often that "it's not quite time, buddy." But by golly, it's getting closer! My weekly midwife appointments start tomorrow, I am working on a baby project every single day of the week (sewing, painting, hanging things!), and I have my first of four showers taking place this week.
Emotions are high and easily available as time is getting closer. I can't think of anything not related to our baby, and Matt is learning so much patience with the demands of his pregnant wife. I miss my ankles and I've gone up a shoe size, my poor wrists and fingers have carpal tunnel and often lose all feeling while I'm asleep, and tums are still a girl's best friend. But I'm also sleeping pretty well, I still have quite a bit of energy, and I think we've settled on his name. A name! That means he is a real person! We can always change our mind, because that's the power of being the parents, but still. A name! I can't wait to put a face to the name.
