done with my checklist

rest of items bought off of registry? check
nursery finished? check
baby 101 class? check
find a pediatrician? check
baby and mommy's bag packed for hospital? check

now starts the waiting game.  i am so lucky that i had time to finish all of these things in the past month since i haven't been able to travel.  however, now i'm a little bored and just playing the "waiting game" til he comes.  i don't think i've had a "nesting" stage where i feel the urge to clean, but i have felt the strong need to get everything ready just in case.  maybe it's just wishful thinking that the baby will come early!  

at our 34 week appointment, we found out that baby lahara's head is measuring at 38.5 weeks and he is already 6lbs!  our new nickname for him is "bobby" from the cartoon "bobby's world" with his ginormous head and black spiky hair.  it definitely makes me nervous that he's now projected to be an 8.5lb baby.   

a few days ago i felt the baby "drop" and now instead of his feet kicking relentlessly under my bra, he's pedaling around my belly button.  now that he's "getting ready" to come down i can feel my pelvic bones separating and my thighs are so sore all day like i did an intense workout with the in/out thigh machine at the gym. arghh, i can breathe so much better now but "dropping down" is bringing on a whole new set of pains. 

one last look at baby lahara... 34 weeks
