One More Month...

Really? We will be adding another little Fletcher to our crazy house in less than one month!

My due date is one month from today and my doctor says she won't let me go over that date. I have an ultrasound next Thursday (36 weeks) to check the baby's positioning and fluid levels and all that other important stuff. What they see will determine if we have to schedule a c-section or can proceed with my attempt to have a VBAC.

The most common question I get these days: Do you have a name for him yet?

My answer: Nope. We have several names we like, but we haven't decided. We probably won't decide for sure until we see him and I spend some time enjoying him.

Second most common question I get: How are you feeling?

My answer: Pretty good. I'm usually great in the morning and then get tired in the afternoon. I've started taking naps or resting again. My legs/feet haven't started swelling too much, but over the weekend I noticed them getting puffy a few times. My back aches, I get heartburn several times a day, and I am generally uncomfortable by nighttime. I'm also having some trouble sleeping, but last night I got good rest. Overall, I'm doing really well.

Third most common question I get: Are you ready for the baby to come?

My answer: Yes. We will set up the crib tonight. We have a car seat, a diaper bag, and clothes. I have a few more things to do to feel "really ready" (put his clothes in the dresser and organize the diapering area), but I think we would be good if he came anytime after the first week of January.

WOW! One more month. A family of six. Another precious little baby. Another huge responsibility. Another incredible blessing.


  1. Can't believe you're due so soon! Other people's pregnancies go by so fast!

  2. Yep, I'm ready too....can't wait to see all 6 of you!! Happy New Year!! Love you all.
