Well the time is getting closer and closer and yet feels SO far away. We went for our usual check up this week and the doctor estimated that the baby would weigh 9-10 lbs if I go full term! Yikes! Apparently I've been measuring quite large for a while. We're hoping that I will go into labor early on my own but I haven't had any contractions (no not even one!!). I am scheduled for an ultrasound to get a more firm estimation of the size and I may have to be induced early. In the meantime...Ben and I are busy painting, hanging curtains and moving furniture (and I'm doing LOTS of sewing) to finish getting ready for baby Alex to be here. We just recently got a Moby wrap (a baby carrier/sling) and I had Ben try it out since it didn't quite fit me. Loki played the part of baby Alex. He had me laughing pretty hard.
