Edition: Contrary to how it looks, I have not reversed to only 3 weeks 6/7 days pregnant. I missed last week so this is the 36 and 37 week update.Size of baby: According to the weekly emails, over 6 lbs. According the the midwife, anywhere between 4 1/2 and 6 lbs.
Fun fact: The specialist said Sesame's head will probably be small since the baby has stayed in the same position the whole time and it (the head) basically ran out of room to grow. I didn't know that was possible. As long as we don't end up with a Barbie sized head on an 18'' doll situation I try not to worry about it too much.
Size of mother: I'd rather not discuss the number on the scale at my appointment on Tuesday.
What's on the menu: I had a white chocolate pudding cup with my breakfast the other day. I almost didn't because Mom would never ever let us eat pudding for breakfast growing up, but then I decided this is my house, my rules so I ate it anyway. What can I say? I'm a rebel child.
Worst part of the week: When the specialist was examining me and all I could think about was THIS is exactly why I specifically choose a midwives office with no men in sight. Hello, awkward.
Best part of the week: Daniel coming to visit.
Other things I have to say: I found a birthday cake for Sesame's first birthday. I know it sounds like I'm rushing things, but I decided years ago that my child would have a bumble bee themed first birthday so really I'm just continuing on with an 8 year plan. Thanks to Pinterest I had decided on a cake but today I saw one I'll probably make instead. I'd like it to be very clear that I will NOT be baking and bringing any birth day cake to the hospital when Sesame is born. The Bradley book recommended as much and I rolled my eyes at that suggestion. They expect me to deliver a baby AND go all Martha Stewart with cakes and streamers? What type of super woman do they think I am?
I'd like to go on record as saying that I will probably cry when Sesame turns one year old. And one month old. I'm going to be one of those parents.
