38 weeks!

Happy Chinese New Year! It's the year of the (water) dragon. Daniel and I have had our fingers crossed that D would hold out on coming till at least today so he would be a dragon, just like his daddy. Yay for listening!

My oh my, two weeks to go. It's hard to believe that it's so close. It's really anybodies guess as to when he will make his debut. He's still ever so slowly gaining more baby fat but I have no clue how much he might even possibly weigh at this point. Which part of me is glad about because if I did know and he was "measuring big" I might start freaking out about having to birth a "big baby" and consider being induced early "to avoid him getting too big". Which I don't want either of (the induction or the fear).

As weird as it sounds I am at the point right now where I look forward to giving birth, it's exciting and unknown. Sure a little scary because when you don't know what you are getting into you are just nervous but I believe that the mind is powerful and that you can set yourself up for success by having a positive outlook vs a often negative one.

Since my last appointment and tattling on D to the Dr about being much more lazy than he usually had been, he has decided to become much more active again. So there has been a lot more rolling and pushing his knees and feet out. Which daddy loves because he gets to play the "grab the feet game".

I can't wait for him to get here and for that next chapter to get started.
