Holy mess, I am 30 weeks along! That means I've got just 10 short weeks til my due date. YES, I know Andrew will come whatever day he's going to come but I'm using the due date the hospital gave me as our official "D-Day". :) Who knows, it could be spot on - my nephew, Xavier, came on his due day. I did look at Sam last night and ask him if he realized that we could become parents any day now. He just shrugged and said "yeah" like it was no big deal. It was as if I had asked him if he checked the mail today.....he's so emotional... ha. About an hour later he did ask me what the baby's chance of surviving would be if he were born tomorrow so I guess it did sink in eventually. (95%, if you were wondering - huge relief to know Andrew will be ok if he decides he just can't wait any longer to meet us). 10 WEEKS! That will seriously fly by. I remember when Mr had 10 weeks left in Iraq and that was a breeze so I'm betting this will feel even quicker since I have much more patience for Andrew's arrival than I did with Sam's. I missed him! 14 months is excruciatingly long to have your husband at war and I was super anxious for him to come home. With Andrew, though, I don't want him to come early, I want him to finish baking!
**********There is an R.O.U.S. in my attic. We heard it last night above the living room and I can hear it again right now above the guest bathroom. I'm afraid it's going to haul Bodini off to the Fireswamp for it's next meal. Terminex appt was made this morning but they can't come til Wednesday. Ah life outside the city limits. Looks like Mister will be sticking a trap up in the attic tonight.**********
Back to Andrew - our final ultrasound is tomorrow morning. I'm excited! I'm 30 weeks along now so his little face will be mostly filled out and he'll have fingers and toes this time instead of alien pods so he'll actually look like a real baby. Those of you who are watching the live feed - log in at 11:00! If you were not invited to the webcast, please do not be offended, it is for immediate family only. I'll post the pictures afterward. They ought to be really cool!!!!! (Or really gross, depending on how you feel about it).
Oh, and if any of you have seen my belly button, I'd like it back please.
