71 Days Left

Oh my! Only 71 days or less before Miss T makes her entrance into the world.

I was reading in "What to Expect" about the 30th week. It said that this week, I should notice the baby sleeping more. I laughed out loud. This baby did NOT get that memo. She is awake and kicking, punching, jabbing and rolling all the time, it seems like. As I sit here and type this, I am being head-butted in the bladder, I have a rump in my ribs, and a foot trying to come out of my belly button. My belly moves and shakes all over! The other night, I felt her start to shift positions and I looked down just in time to see what looked like her behind moving from the left side of my belly to the right side. She gets really rowdy when I lay down in bed for the night. Or for a nap. It's nearly impossible to fall asleep when a tiny human is river dancing on your internal organs, just FYI.

I'm enjoying the last few weeks I have with T, though. I know that after I deliver, I'll miss being kicked and punched when I'm trying to go to sleep. Well, it will probably take a few weeks for me to start missing that, haha. I'm getting anxious about the delivery, I hope everything goes smoothly and somewhat according to plan. We have another appointment tomorrow with my OB and I've got a list of questions to ask her. Hope she's ready!

  1. Good luck with the delivery and everything, you don't have too much longer. A girl I know just delivered twins for her first surrogacy ALL NATURAL!!! I don't know how she did it. I don't think I could do it, I love my epidural too
