I'm feeling a little anxious about how much I haven't done to get ready. We have designated the three-day weekend after Thanksgiving for reorganizing the house and getting Baby #2's room set up. That is two weeks before my due date, so hopefully he's not too early! My prediction is December 8th.
My doctor confirmed at my last appointment that Baby #2 is currently in a breech position. She said there is still time for him to move head down on his own [Fingers crossed!] but that if not by my next appointment at 36w4d we will have "a whole discussion about options."
Some comparison photos for fun from when I was pregnant with Swede! From left to right: at 34 weeks, at my baby shower at 35 weeks [Oh, That CAKE!], and on the day I went into labor at 39w2d. I think I'm a little bigger than with Swede but not much. Per my doctor I have a long torso [which I knew because I'm always buying shirts in tall sizes even though I'm not especially tall] so there's plenty of room for the babies to grow up and down.
Question: How essential is it that I get presents for Swede and Baby #2 to give to each other? Will their relationship be ruined forever if I don't? This seems like a recent tradition. I'm pretty sure my brother didn't give me a present when I was born. Does it really help or is it just a catchy marketing gimmick? It probably won't matter for Baby #2 but if it makes the transition better for Swede then I'm on board. Thoughts???
I think that's about all I have to say for now... I feel really blessed to have had a healthy and relatively comfortable pregnancy so far. I'm so excited to meet our little boy!
