Did you know Daddy bird’s nest? They do at our house. Joe has been on a nesting kick the past week. Since I have been exhausted with work and pregnancy, he promised me that he would clean the house for the shower tomorrow. He certainly delivered. The house is spotless and I am doing my best to maintain it for one more day. In addition to cleaning, I have come home to find new pieces of furniture. Joe has been worried that the house “needs this or that.” So, we’ve got a new rug, a new bench, and a new armoire. I don’t think we can afford for him to indulge in any more “needs.”
On the dilation news front, I am now 3 cm dilated. I am not sure how much longer this can go on. The doctor estimated that the baby is somewhere between 6 and 7 pounds. This week I actually saw my own doctor; she said that she didn’t want to say that he will come early because it will jinx it and I will end up at 41 weeks. So, the outcome remains to be seen. But, I have noticed that my feet are swelling some. My inner ankles look a little mushy. Joe told me not to get cankles, but I told him I wasn’t really in control of that.
