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.

The OBGyn was happy to see the progression of growth with Baby Z, and my constancy with my weight. It’s been 2 weeks since my last check up and I’m still only 20 lbs. over my pre-baby weight. The nurse who I talk to each visit was also surprised that I’m on my last month and managed to look “not-pregnant” from the back. She said I looked like I was carrying a boy and I was “all baby,” so that means a lot! I shared to her my first experience with Emma, and […]
