Another check-up day

I just got back from the doctor, and all is well. I did the usual routine. I am up 6 lbs from last week. I swear it is all baby, and placenta!! I am not eating any differently, and I was only gaining like 2 lbs a month in the beginning. My belly looks as though it has dropped some, but I am not ready yet. The doctor that looked at me today (my regular doc is on vacation until right before the baby is due) examined me today, and my cervix is still pretty not time yet. Though the possibility is always there for early delivery, but not likely. I go each week now to be checked until the baby is due. Only a little more than 3 weeks left!

I told Greg this morning, I am still in limbo about all of this. I know I am pregnant, but I don't think it has really quite hit home yet, that we are about to have a new life to take care of. I guess that will kick in soon enough. :)

I hope all is well in your world.

Memorial Day

Let us remember that today is not just about barbeques, and family get togethers. This is a day of rememberance in the U.S. ... a memorial to those that have died fighting to make this world a better place.

Check up day...

I went to the doctor today for my check up. Everything is as it should be. Baby is good, I am good. I had some labwork done on Tuesday to make sure I am getting all I need from my vitamins, and diet. That came back just fine. BP is good. Baby's heartbeat is great. Baby is moving quite a lot. She is a squirmy little one! :) She's growing, and so am I. They did a swabby thingy today to make sure I don't have any bacterial stuff going on down in the nether regions.
I am 36 weeks today. I could deliver anywhere from 37 weeks to 41 weeks. I don't think it will be this next week...but I think it will be sooner rather than later. Though, this lil one is anything like me...she will be stubborn. :)

Have a great weekend!

A new page, a new life...

I have been A Southern Girl Discovers the Great White North since December of 2002. I have discovered, and I have conquered... well, I am not sure about conquering, but I feel at home here. :)

This is a turning point in my life, and therefore warrants a new page.

May 19th was my last working day for at least a year due in fact that I am about to become a mommy for the first time.

One chapter of my life is ending, and another one is beginning, and fear of the unknown is always a scary thing. The last time I left a job (though that was permanent) I married, and moved to Canada. It will be a bit strange to me for a while, all the more in a few short weeks I will have a beautiful new life to take care of. :)

I am looking forward to shaping , and molding this new page, and I hope that you, my family and friends will enjoy sharing with me.
