9 1/2 Months

Can you believe we have reached the 9 1/2 month pregnant mark?! I am so happy this baby is deciding to stay in and develop as long as possible. (Of course, as long as that doesn't include getting to be HUGE!)

Here are the last 4 weeks of photos in a collage.

I've had people tell me that it looks like belly is dropping down some. I think I can definitely feel the difference since the heartburn at night doesn't happen nearly as much and I can eat a pretty decent portion of food for a meal. I've also had people say that each time they see me from week to week that I look bigger. Thankfully that doesn't bother me, since I do know my weight is not changing the last few visits to the doctor.

Baby does like to practice his/her kickboxing moves, mainly at night, so that hasn't been much fun. Sleeping is starting to become a pretty big issue, but I try to sleep as much as I can when I have the time.

We toured the labor/delivery and postpartum floors at our hospital (Valley Baptist Brownsville) yesterday. That was very nice to get to see more of the rooms and meet some of the people around there. The lactation consultant was the one that showed us around and she was very helpful!! I'm looking forward to using her services while there. She's only there on Mon-Fri so I'm hoping baby decides Sunday is a good time to be born and I can have help all day Monday before going home. We do know we will have to be very assertive when it comes to breastfeeding and what we want done with baby for rooming-in and medications/procedures, so please pray that the staff is open to listening and following our wishes. We don't need the stress of that along with trying to be relaxed and bonding with baby.

Good luck to all of you that put a guess in on
