September Already??

Ok, to start I have to complain about the fact that I was 3/4 done with this blog entry, and my computer shut off. Granted it was my fault, since the battery was dying and I didn't plug in, but STILL. Annoying. Anyway, moving on.

I cannot believe the it is September already. How did that happen? Where did summer go? Ok, so I know that technically it's still summer. But signs of fall are popping up everywhere. It's been chilly in the mornings and evenings; Stephanie has had to wear a sweater when we leave the house the past few days. Public schools are starting, and college kids are moving into their dorm rooms. And for me, the biggest sign of fall is the fact that my due date is in 5 weeks.

Back in January, when I first saw that positive sign, fall seemed light-years away. It was still winter! We needed to get through spring and summer first. But those seasons have flown by, and now it's down to crunch time. I'm counting how many weeks are left now, instead of how many weeks along I am. I'm anxious about everything I still have left to do, and am forcing myself to take it one step at a time. (Plus I know that all the major stuff is done, or getting done this weekend.) I'm also starting to get really excited to meet him. There are so many times when I feel like I've been too busy to just think about him, and what he's going to be like. I'm too focused on everything else, and it makes me sad. But now that it's so close, I look forward to just seeing him for the first time, and holding him and cuddling him. I can't wait!

Oh, before I end this, a quick Dr's update. He still might be breech, the doctor can't tell. If she isn't sure at the next appointment, she'll schedule an ultrasound. My blood pressure was very low, so she told me I could eat a little more salt, and to make sure i'm drinking enough water. I've been very lightheaded lately, and she said it's probably a combination of dehydration and low blood pressure. But my weight gain is only at 22 pounds, versus the 39 it was at this point with Stephanie! That makes me happy. :) So all in all, things look good, and I just keep hoping and praying that he is head-down!
