Only 9 weeks left

Wow,  only 9 weeks left until we can meet our wee Munchkin.  It seems so far and yet so close.

I keep wondering how the cats will feel

Every so often I end up thinking about how well the cats will adjust to having our little Munchkin around.

I think Tabitha will be curious and possibly playful.  She'll probably be a little on the fearful side once Munchkin starts moving around.  I have a feeling there will be an awful lot of giggle moments there.

Cranberry on the other hand I think might be a little on the jealous side.  I mean she gets jealous of the laptop.  And since a bunch of her cuddle time will be taken up by our wee Munchkin it could be a bit of a problem.  But I think she'll adjust.  At least I hope so.

My Winter Coat

I just want to say that the super nifty coat I bought in July is still wonderful.  I've just noticed one thing.  Now that I 'm visibly pregnant, I feel like I look like a teepee in it.

Just sayin.  I'll see if I can get a picture of me in it at some point.

All sorts of gifties for you

Dear Munchkin,

Today your three Aunties (my sister, and my two very closest friends) threw a baby shower for you.  They are awesome people you will love them.  They are lots of fun and they love you already.

A bunch of my friends, your Grandma, one of my Aunts and your cousin all came out to wish you well and bring you stuff.

You got some toys, lots of clothes, some really cool hand made stuff (I have crafty friends and relatives) and lots and lots of well wishes.

Munchkin's New Talent

Munchkin has learned a new talent.  Our little one seems to be exploring the world by pushing now.  Before it was just kicks and hiccups.  Now I'll be sitting there and all of a sudden I'll feel a hand or a foot pushing my stomach out visibly.  It's kind of neat.

We've also discovered (well confirmed really) that Muchkin is shy.  Munchkin will be kicking away and having a great time, then as soon as someone puts their hand on my tummy to feel it, Munchkin stops moving.

Getting there

So tomorrow I'll be 29 weeks along.  Time is slipping by so quickly.  The end of January seems so far away yet so close.

I've noticed in the past week I've become fairly clumsy and my centre of balance has changed.  It's a little difficult get used to.  I think the hardest part right now is the fact that all of my joints have started aching.  Well that and I've developed a distinct waddle.

On the nifty side, Munchkin has been kicking up a storm and seems to be moving about a fair bit.  Actually Munchkin loves to push at Cranberry when she's draped herself all over me.  Cranberry gets a really funny look on her face when it happens.

My midwife thinks that all is going well which is good.  I've graduated from seeing her once a  month to every too weeks.

Now back to my quiet night on the couch.

Well that makes me feel better

Today was the day I got to see the special/high risk obstetrician. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I figured this might be the point where I'm told I have to have a c-section or be induced, not be able to have my midwife etc....

But that wasn't the case. They had a look at Munchkin with on the ultrasound (I got to watch the little one hiccup) took the history etc... Then they basically said that except for some extra visits we should be able to proceed normally and let nature take it's course. Yay!

This makes me feel a lot better. 

In other news, I now have winter boots that look like slippers, but they were cheap and warm and can handle my swollen feet.
