Still stuck at Melon on the produce-baby comparison chart; however, yesterday's sonogram revealed that I'm carrying a 7lb14oz baby. I'm not sure what melon weighs that much. Pumpkins are the nearest produce I can think of weighing that much.

There's some alarm there for me, and I've been posting for prayers and suggestions as even the doctor at the sonogram place suggested I hurry things along (spicy food and - in his russian accent I could just barely make out "magnificent s*x") after I let another week pass.

I'm not ready for this baby. Not in the freaked out, worried about labor way (though that will hit me) but in the "my house is not ready and we are still remodeling our kitchen" type ready. Too, I made the rookie mistake of buying little new born clothes. My son, who was closest to 10lbs, didn't fit in newborn sizes when he was newborn. Looks like Blueberry (our produce inspired nickname for the little one on the way) is going to go head to head for the heavy weight title...the gowns I've collected (thinking they'll be a breeze to change diapers at night) will still work....but oh, the other things I'm wondering about.

Today we are traveling four hours away from home, and I'm not looking forward to being that far away from the hospital. I tried to do this trip last week, but stuff kept getting in the way. Today it's do or die...we're pushing into nesting mode whether I really feel like nesting or not. I'm betting that once everything is done, I'll get the inspiration and maybe start doing some extra's. Or maybe I'll just use what little time I have left to nap, LOL.

My shower - my very first - is scheduled for Sunday afternoon. I'm nervous and a little excited at the same time. I'm so pleased that my daughter is driving me to it...I've told her if I'm up to it that we'll go shopping to fill in the little gaps that are left for the baby and grab an early dinner out using a gift coupon I received on my birthday.

Whooo Hoooo!!!! Not long now, Jamie! Smile

How well I remember those last few weeks (and how fast they flew!), and all the things on my to do list that I was trying to finish up before the arrival of the baby. As it got closer to my due date, everything else faded away and the only thing that really mattered to me was getting to hold that precious little one in my arms!

I saw your update on the shower and assume now you're loaded with baby clothes (and hopefully not all of them are tiny?!).

Hang in there...the best is yet to come. Smile

With love and hugs and continued prayers,

Tamara (mom of seven; grandma to two so far!)
