Gestating right along here. I know the baby has a long way to grow and I'm not going to wish away the pregnancy because heaven knows those first few postpartum weeks have me longing for the last several pregnant weeks but the baby already feels BIG. But don't they all? And I'd say this baby is a real mover and shaker but I've yet to hear about an in utero babe that isn't. Not special.
I can happily report that I've experienced no visits from the heartburn fairy unlike I did with the other two Pattonlets and so I'm predicting that this baby will arrive sans hair not unlike a little Gollum. Poor thing. I'm measuring right at 28 weeks with the speeding weight gain train picking up an average of two weekly pounds. Things you needed to know.
One of the (many) emails I sent to Simon with a list of potential names prompted Gmail to ask if he'd like them to translate the email into the Spanish language. So, we are getting nowhere very fast in that department.
I've been working diligently on my birth plan which involves training Sebastian to take care of Julia in case of an unlikely precipitous delivery (talk her down from a meltdown cliff, lift her out of her crib, fix her morning "coffee" - the basics) talking in soothing and hushed tones to the baby about not getting antsy to arrive while his/her father is working an overnight shift. And I'm still debating a refresher parenting course.
And I'm guessing that about covers all of the unsolicited pregninfo you could ever want to know.
