Mike took this picture of me after church (and a trip to Dunkin' Donuts!) this morning. Glazed munchkins certainly aren't helping my figure at this point, but the point of me caring has most definitely passed. :) I'm considered full term now with three more weeks to go - if I go on time. I'm due Aug. 9.
So far I've had no reason to think I'll go early. I feel better than I have for most of the pregnancy, in fact. This has been almost a carbon copy of my pregnancy with Abby Kate. So if that's any indication for labor timing... well then I may just go to 41 weeks again.
We went to the hospital's maternity open house to check things out last week. Seeing the rooms made me a little nervous, knowing labor is eminent!
Nonetheless, I'm so excited that we'll get to meet Avery soon and that I'll be on my way to feeling 'normal' again.
I'm having lovely daydreams of going for long runs. We recently got a new double jogging stroller that is simply the best thing ever. I researched one for weeks and I am so, so pleased with the BOB Ironman Sport Utility stroller. I would highly recommend it if you want a stroller built for long, safe runs with your kids. It is so light and smooth and handles 1,000 times better than my first single Jeep jogger. I'll link the pic to info about the stroller if you happen to be looking for one. It also comes in a single. (Thanks to all my friends who gave me gift certificates to BabiesRUs at my shower! We will get SO much use out of this stroller.)
