24 Days until this new little one comes.... if he waits that long! This has been a very long pregnancy to say the least. I'm sure I'd have 3 more children if I didn't have to carry them all. Sadly - this may be my last only for that reason. My body does not like to be pregnant, especially my pancreas! But - it is almost over and I already feel as though I have accomplished something big! I'm pretty sure I've been so focused on getting through this pregnancy one day at a time that I have forgotten to consider the reward at the end.
Roman Eli now calls me "SweetiePie." This was what I apparently called him every now and then and didn't realize it. Now, he has adopted it to be used on me, Mommy, all while showing his love and affection for me. Awwwww - can you imagine TWO of these little boys!
Yesterday, I started swelling. I was hoping it wouldn't happen this time like this. And when I say swelling, don't take it lightly. I mean, I wake up that way in the morning and it continues to grow as the day goes:) I have creases all the way to my hips from every piece of thread in my cotton pants. My ankles are the same size as my calves! And lets not even mention my hands all the way up to my shoulders! Yuck...... A week after delivering my first child my husband said "I had forgotten what you really look like. Now you remind me of when we were dating again." Pretty sure I'm approaching the same condition again.
Okay - so now I feel a little relief from the venting! Everything is ready except his name! We are close but not sold. I wish I knew for sure. I wish I was sold 100% on a name but I'm not. Hopefully it will come to us soon.
