34 weeks ...and rolling along

As of right this second, Davis is staying put. If he's anything like his mother though, he will make up his mind and pop out when he is ready. I swear, I think he is already stubborn and impatient like me. Yes, I admit it! Hopefully having this baby will give me some much deserved patience that has been long awaited by others, I'm sure. Every time we are in the doctor's office, I keep hearing that the baby has already formed his personality. That the way he is in my belly, will be the way that he is when he's out. If that is the case, then I am so in for it. I already have a hyper active child in there! At one of my appointment, my Dr. told me now is the time to start doing kick counts, to gage the babies movement. I actually haven't had to do this one time yet because I swear, I already have an insomniac child. He never stops to rest it seems like. At some points, it's really reassuring knowing that he is okay in there and has good brain activity going on. Then, there are the other times, when I'm praying for sleep as there is a foot in my ribs. If I'm this tired now, how could it get worse?! Yes, I know I have yet to find out. The thought has crossed my mind lately, wondering has a baby ever broken its mother's ribs? Or gotten their foot stuck? Awful thought, I know.
I finally got the stroller put together the other day and was really excited about it. It's so weird, because I never thought I would get excited over a stroller. But it's not just any stroller! It's my Davis' stroller! It took a little bit for me to actually have it assembled. It was actually an ordeal, to be honest. The first day I tried, I somehow managed to fling a vital piece, that of course held the entire thing together, across the living room. I still have yet to find it, as it's in the black hole that is my house. At the same time of dropping this piece, I drop a soda can of the floor, unopened, that manages to spew every last drop straight up in my face. Of course! Needless to say, I put the stroller business on hold for a couple of days and went out and bought a new piece. I will find the missing one when Davis is about one years old.

Is this available now?? Hahaha

Haha. Like the comic. :)

I've been wondering the same thing about the ribs! It hurts SOOO bad sometimes!

Yes, you'll be getting less sleep.. but it will also be more comfortable sleep.. and I don't know if you're still working, but you'll be able to sleep more during the day after baby comes!

Your patience will definitely change with having a child too.. At least with him anyway! :)

can you believe it is getting closer and closer? i wouldn't worry about sleep and being tired when the baby comes, you will find your own rhythm, i swear sometimes other moms make things sound so like they went ot war or something,not that it is easy but you will have so much love for that little guy! you will be a great mom and learn all the things you need, i am sure of it! now its just the waiting...

You are getting very close.

When my daughter was in my belly she would kick over and over in the same spot. Now that she is out of my belly, she loves to kick over and over with the same leg.

Hahaha ... I definitely remember thinking the same thing about if it was possible for the baby to break your ribs or get its foot stuck. My daughter NEVER slept when she was inside me ... EVER. She didn't sleep after she was born either. She still never stops moving, even in her sleep she has a foot moving.
