Sometime this past week, baby turned head down. While I can only hope and pray baby stays that way (my babies are not known for their love of the head down position), it was a happy thing to feel baby getting ready.
Looking at the photo above, I can see just how much my face is changing shape. It is always such a slow progression as I swell into my late-in-pregnancy self that sometimes I do not notice it. However, I am feeling my size. I am so much slower than I was just a couple of weeks ago. And the sickness that ran through the house last week really took a toll on me.
Yesterday, I had an OB appointment (always a welcome distraction). Since I am not high risk, my OB is pretty lenient about how often I come in. I won’t go in again until near Christmastime, but, after that, I’ll probably start in on weekly visits. You always know you are on the downhill slide when that happens!
This pregnancy has had its fast moments and its slow moments. Sometimes it is hard to believe I’m so close to delivery and other times 7 weeks feels light years away. In many ways, being able to share weekly with all of you has made the time feel much faster! Often, I find myself thinking, “It’s Friday again?” So, thank you for sharing the journey with me!
