That?s the potential birthdate for Dominic. It?s close. As in TWO WEEKS close. Talk about panic mode!
It?s not confirmed yet that we will be doing a C-section, because there is still a little bit of time for my obviously stubborn 3rd son to turn his butt around and get his head down, but it isn?t looking good. Not only that, but I?ve been put on bedrest for the rest of the pregnancy to make sure a certain little someone doesn?t end up with a prolapsed cord or a foot showing up first. Sigh. So the bathroom painting? Yeah, so not going to happen. The good news is that I?ll have time after the baby and before my sister comes to clean the house. Because I?m sure I?ll be super energetic with a newborn.
IF Dominic does turn around, the doctor doesn?t think he?ll be in there much past mid-February . . . he?s a big kid already, estimated at 7 lbs 6 oz. His head measures 38 weeks, even though we?re only in the 36th week. So who knows exactly how big he is, but it?s sure looking like he?s going to be a February baby!
So, if I only have two weeks left before my munchkin shows up, we had better get a crib. I?d better sew SOMETHING before he gets here, since I wanted to make him a cute little hat to wear home from the hospital. I?d better cook some freezer meals, too. And, and, and . . . well, one weekend left to figure it all out!
