As we get into the final weeks, I get poked and prodded even more due to being “high risk” thanks to my gestational diabetes.
Even my daughter wants to check on the baby! I can't count on her stethoscope though unless I want to believe we really are hearing frogs in there.
I keep trying to tell myself we have time yet. Time for this, that and the other thing, but truth is…we are quickly running out if time. I've managed to keep my calendar busy between now and baby's arrival too. Why? I don't know!
Okay part of the busy-ness is not my doing… I have to go into the doctor more frequently to monitor him due to the GD. Then there's Rissa's birthday coming up and a conference…a toy fair…Thanksgiving….
I have to remind myself that he could be here in about 6-8 weeks. That's really not that far away!
There's still work to be done in the nursery and I can't help but wonder if Rissa is going to wean from nursing or not. I can't believe she hasn't yet!
It's going to be exhausting having him right in the midst of the holiday season, but I think it's actually a good thing. This way Rissa should still get plenty of attention from extended family and not feel so put out of place by the baby, right? I hope so…
