Perze and Em were able to accompany me to the OBGyn today. Everything went well & quickly. I got some reading material for labor. Overall, everything was healthy and normal. My doctor asked me what our plans were for such a beautiful weekend, so I responded, “Hopefully, giving birth…” So that’s me in nine months. I’ve gained 27 lbs. so far, and hoping that’s it before I give birth. Everyone says it looks like I’m carrying a boy, and by everyone, it’s mostly experienced mums who’ve had boys. So when I buy some stuff for Baby Z, I end up looking at the boys section, but always purchase more unisex items- less green though, and more natural, creams, cereal, oatmeals, whites, aqua ocean, beiges. I’m very into things that look “Green” and earthy. With that said, I’ve been very picky in what to buy and don’t want to over-buy things, so I’ll show you what I kept and bought in another blog :).
9th month! Last month! The nurse took my blood pressure- normal. Weight- 26 lbs. gained So far everything looks great. My doctor then surprised me by saying that I had already started dilation 🙂 and that the baby had already dropped down. Having had a previous problem during my first pregnancy w/ Emma not dropping down up until the very last minute of my labor, I was pleasantly surprised that Baby Zias/Zienne might be arriving faster. We got all the questions and procedures out of the way, and I called Perze excitedly, thinking that it could even be only a week away until we see our beloved. We all got pretty enthusiastic. I can’t imagine how much this will change our family dynamics, but all fears are really overweighed by the excitement to meet the newest member of our family.
