Yikes. I have less than three months until my due date. Two thirds of the way done! I guess it's been kind of sneaking up on us for a while here (like 6 months), but I am really starting to get excited. My new morning alarm is being kicked in the gut from the inside out, a little creepy, but oddly reassuring.
The other day I finally had my first stranger ask when I am due. I was quite thrilled. Not half an hour later I was asked again. So, apparently I am looking pregnant now. Although I imagine the belly rubbing makes it a bit more clear. I think most people don't rub their bellies if there isn't a baby involved, although I could be wrong. I will have to test my hypothesis.
Every Saturday I go online to several sites and see what progress our little girl has made. This week she's opening her eyes and more of the kicking (I'm sure) will happen. We are also into the realm of reassurance that she'd have a good chance of survival if she was born today although I'd like to cook her a little bit longer thank you very much.
Now that the third trimester is upon me I suddenly feel a little frantic about all of the things that still need to get done before she arrives. I guess I had better get busy!
