First of all… I PASSED MY FRIGGING GD TEST!!! I’m completely shocked. I was absolutely certain that with the insulin resistance and being overweight, I would fail miserably. I even had myself a mini-meltdown yesterday worrying abut it and being so fearful that my bad mom-ness was going to hurt him. I’m so thankful to not have that to worry about.
Bubba is currently breach. They are not worried at this point because he has lots of room and time to turn himself around. It also means that the hard lump often found on either side of my belly button, is not his bum as previously assumed… it’s his head!
And finally, in Bubba news… kid’s huge!!! They estimated he’s about 3lbs, 10 oz!! And they projected that at this rate of growth, “little” man will be around 9lbs! I didn’t for a minute think that I would have a teeny, tiny baby, but 9lbs!! Guess it’s a good thing that we didn’t buy any “newborn” sized clothes… since he’ll clearly be nearly an adult when he comes out!
I’m so unbelievably grateful that things seem to be progressing well. It doesn’t stop me from halting the breaks on my entrance into the confidence club though. I’m still waiting for the bad news at every turn. But I’m trying to go with the flow and obsess about other more insignificant things… like bassinettes and diapers!
