This Mama Comes in 3rd


Besides being HUGE and very uncomfortable, I've been keeping busy and trying to stay distracted until our little one arrives. I've been dilated to a three for the past couple weeks and the baby is head down but I think she's having too much fun kicking me with all her strength.

Every time I go to the doctor, he does an ultrasound and measures her. Unfortunately, she hasn't grown much in two weeks. Doc told me not to be concerned unless she still hasn't grown by next appointment. How is it that I'm still getting BIGGER and she's not?! I don't even recognize my body parts anymore. I saw my legs in the mirror and about cried. My body is retaining a lot of water. The sacrifices we make for our babies!

Our Mr. Boy has become quite the daddy's boy. It started out cute- now it's a little annoying. HeRoos and MB have been in a routine since day 1 of MB's life. When MB wakes up in the morning, HeRoos gets him out of his crib, cuddles him and they have breakfast together. If I interfere, MB lets me know that I'm not welcome-little does he know I prefer sleeping in anyway.

This morning HeRoos was on the exercise bike (yes, we're both gaining weight with this pregnancy) so I went to get MB out of his crib. He threw himself around the crib screaming & tossing until HeRoos arrived. The little stinker wanted nothing to do with me until HeRoos left for work. I guess I just have to accept that I'm not number 1 in his book. Come to think of it, Grandma Reta probably has the number 2 spot, so I guess I come in 3rd.

Jake likes the dog more than me most days.

We are on the countdown now. Hang in there -- you are almost done.
Maybe it isn't so bad being No. 3
especially since you will have to be No. 1 to your daughter for awhile. Isn't pregnancy SOOO fun?
I never get it when people say they enjoy being pregnant. At least I didn't just love it. But it's a necessary evil. Thank you Eve. Enjoy. Meridee

Sounds like your pregnancy is winding down. Are you having any contractions yet, or just dilating? At least you have a husband that is really hands on. A lot of women don't have that. Sounds like he's a keeper!!!

You are so close! I remember those last few weeks are the hardest! I am so excited for you to have a little girl for Adi to play with! Hang in there, soon you'll have that beautiful little girl in your arms!

Somedays I think it would be really nice to be second or third. I am amazed that Shawn can be on the main floor reading a book, and I am upstairs working my tail off and the kids will come to me to solve a problem. I guess I should be flattered, but.....

Girls are usually Mama's girls. So you might luck out there.

Hey...I didn't mean to ignore your comment you made about the drive in, but at the time Laurie and Tammy were out of town and then I went out of town after that. I know I'm probably too late now, but I am excited for you to have your baby! Remember...aim for the 31st..that's my birthday!

3rd place isn't bad...if 1st and 2nd place cannot fulfill their duties, it's ALL you! (and I'm sure there are plenty of times that dad and grandma just don't make the cut...) Good luck over the next few weeks!!!

I'm really wishing I came in 3rd with my 3yr old right now. He doesn't love that I'm not available at his beck and call these days! ;-) Love how the room turned out...super cute! I can't wait to see your little girl. I hope this last bit goes quickly for you!

Sometimes I wish I came in third, especially to my 3 yr. old right now. He doesn't really love it that I can't rush to his aid right now. ;-) I can't wait to see your sweet little girl! And great job on her room...it's adorable!
