A small update

I was looking over at the timeline on my side bar and indeed I have only about 3 weeks until my due date. I can't believe it. I thought I would give a quick update about how things are progressing. My belly is huge, but it's supposed to be right? Luckily I'm not that swollen yet. Tomorrow's forecast of 88 degrees may do me in though, by tomorrow evening I predict I will greatly resemble the Stay Puff marshmallow man or woman rather. The baby is kicking well. I went to the doctor on Friday and he is pleased with the baby's growth. All my babies measure small, this doctor seemed more concerned than previous doctors. When I went in for my glucose test, my sugar is right on the borderline. The doctor told me to cut down on the sugar. It's been a lot harder for me than it should be, but I'm trying. The doctor mentioned that he may want to induce me to prevent the baby from getting to big (but didn't I just say he was small? I know I'm confused too). He didn't say anything about induction on Friday which I think I'm grateful for. I don't really know how I feel about that. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Roger is going out of town again from September 22-24. What are the odds I'll go into labor while he's gone? My guess is that I probably will, but if he were to stay here, I wouldn't. Isn't that always the way it works? The baby's room is coming together. We are hoping to paint this week. I refinished a dresser and it's just about ready to be filled with stuff (pictures coming). I have felt extremely blessed through this whole pregnancy. I really feel rather good and probably am sleeping better than any 37 week pregnant woman should. I apologize for the randomness of this post, but I have hardly documented what's going on and know I will really regret it if I don't! I will post before and after photos of the bedroom and dresser as soon as possible, it seems we are ahead of my October 5th prediction for finishing.... yea.

Man I wish I could have actually helped while I was there. I could come if you go in to labor while Roger is gone?
It sounds like you're doing great. You're so good about it that I sometimes forget you're pregnant.

I was just telling Sean yesterday that the baby was due soon! Can't wait to see the room and him! And to find out his name.

Glad you are doing well.
