I am continually shocked with how fast this pregnancy seems to be going. I think it goes right in hand with how quickly this year seems to be going -it's practically June, people. I almost wish things would slow down, and I could just take in all of the little moments, but I'm also very excited to meet this little one (and find out if our newest family member is a boy or a girl!), so I'll let it slide for now.
At eight months, I'm still feeling pretty good. Sleep isn't too bad yet and I'm still able to move around alright. My hips are definitely feeling it more than they did with Fox, but it's not too bad. And I figure sore hips are a good thing -the body is just doing prep work for labor, right? Oh, speaking of all that crazy prep work, I had a doctor's appointment today and I'm at a 2 and 70% effaced. What??? I know those numbers can stay like that for a while, but it just shocked me because with Fox, nothing happened at all until the night before he was born. It probably means nothing, but I'm thinking it may be an early sign that this is going to be an even faster labor than Fox's was. That has me equally excited and worried -no baby deliveries in the car, please.
...and just for documentation's sake, here's how Fox felt about Daddy taking a break from playing with him to take my picture real fast :(
