It is beginning to feel scandalous to show this much skin on a public forum. Times Square and the statue of Liberty were just the appetizers!
I’ve had this blog for a number of years. I wrote an entry here about why I do it and why it is fulfilling, as opposed to being some sort of flagrant egocentric exercise. When Steve showed me that an RSS feed can be linked to Facebook so that my entries are automatically uploaded into the note section there whenever I write, it seemed like a cool concept. I still think it is a cool concept, but I also wonder about it potentially being off putting.
Of course, people not interested (and I wouldn’t blame them especially because I’m all about pregnancy blah blah these days) certainly don’t have to read it. I’m not nuts enough to think my pregnancy is really that important to anyone besides my immediate family, but I do wonder if it being posted to Facebook comes across like I think everyone should be equally fascinated. Ah, the trials and tribulations of technology.
I have been so busy reading multiple childbirth books that I haven’t even gotten to the infancy care books. Steve has read a couple of those, so I am expecting him to know what to do when the baby arrives! Someone has to know how to put a diaper on. I can’t believe the due date is four days away. My Mom jumps every time I send her a text message. This weekend is going to be a scorcher, I would be happy to spend it in the hospital with the AC.
On Monday, a doctor felt up my belly and said that the baby didn’t seem that large- at least not 10 pound large. His estimation was 7.5 to 8 pounds at nearly 39 weeks. I was really happy to hear that! Who knows what the baby really weighs, but having someone contradict the ultrasound was enough to balance it out in my mind and will at least tone down the dreams I’m having where I give birth to a huge baby that starts talking before we even leave the hospital!
Happy weekend everyone. I’ll be in the lake as much as I can!
