Just a few more weeks to go, until hopefully we'll be holding this little guy safe and healthy in our arms. I'm hoping the time flies by, as I'm starting to get very very anxious. We're onto weekly appts and ultrasounds now, I've developed a bit of excess amniotic fluid, so the doc is watching us closely. He said he's not at all concerned, he just wanted me to have an uneventful textbook pregnancy, and this is a bit of a complication. I've also been having braxton hicks contractions daily since 20 wks, which really freaked me out, but which is apparently normal in pregnancies spaced close together. I've been done work for a few weeks now (due to the contractions and long commute) and have a few more to go. The thought of 6 weeks to sit and stew about this baby's safe arrival really freaked me out, but so far the time is flying, and I'm not sure I'll be able to finish up everything I want to. I've been really trying to stay positive and think about bringing this one safely home, but the panic and anxiety creep in a few times a day. The weekly appt's are helping, so is the fact that this guy is way more active than his sister was. Just need to keep busy for a while longer!
