Last night Jason and I started our labor and delivery classes. When it came to raising your hand if you were planning on a natural birth I was the only one who did so. A little sympathy for me because it is not by choice, but I had a spinal fusion about six years ago and I can't have an epidural...just laugh lol. However, next week I have a consult to see what I can have or what can be done if I need an emergency c-section. Phew.
The little one is going to be here next month. Woah! Where has time gone? I feel like I have known forever that I am pregnant, but I have had such an easy pregnancy this far that it has been a blessing. Maybe because it took so long for me to get pregnant the pregnancy gods were smiling down on me ;) I actually think I may miss being pregnant when the time comes for him/her to make their debut. I have enjoyed the whole experience because it was never something I thought I would be able to do. The occasional foot in the rib though I could pass on...
My guess is that the baby is a girl. I feel like so many think it is a boy it is only right that I think it is a girl ha ha. Also, Jason is so confident that it is a boy (or so he puts that out there) that I feel like he has truly jinxed himself. All of that talk on TLC about not being able to have girls may come back to bite him ;) After everything either gender is truly a blessing. I can see myself with a little boy taking him to football practice and watching him play with his dad, but I can also see myself with a little girl watching girly movies and painting her nails. I can't wait to find out what Baby J is!
My official due date is just about four weeks away. Obviously I am hoping s/he comes a little sooner than forty weeks, but I am prepared that I may be pregnant until November lol.
(((Here is the belly at 34.5 weeks)))
I think that is the update. The nursery is ready, the car seat has arrived, and we are still filming with TLC. :) I better get those breathing techniques down like a pro because labor/delivery is probably not going to be pretty.
