Just the other day, I realized how long it’s been since I’ve posted a pregnancy picture. The weeks are FLYING by, and time is completely getting away from me, so in the last seven weeks I only have three pictures to show. But here they are anyway, and holy cow, I’ve gotten bigger!

I’m now less than four weeks from my due date, and I’m shocked at how fast this pregnancy has gone! It does seem like February, when we got our positive test, was ages ago, but suddenly it’s October and here we are. Crazy how fast this year has flown.
I went in for my first weekly doctor checkup on Tuesday, and because of our imminent move to California, and the fact that I’m already progressing (1 cm dilated and 50% effaced) they are willing to induce me early so Philip will be here for the birth (thank goodness). So although I haven’t scheduled an induction date, I can guarantee that I’ll have a baby by October 26th at the latest, and that’s only three. weeks. away!!! I’m hoping I can get myself to naturally go into labor and avoid an induction, but I’m so grateful to have an induction as a backup to put my mind at ease. The last thing I want is to have a baby alone, or for Philip to be forced to move when the baby is only a day or two old. Grateful, grateful, grateful for modern medicine and helpful doctors.
Despite the imminent arrival of baby #2 and our upcoming move, I’m feeling really relaxed and calm. For me, nesting kicked in around 12 weeks, so the house has been turned upside down, everything has been weeded through and re-organized, and everything has been deep cleaned multiple times. So moving should go really smoothly, even with a newborn, because Philip’s company is doing everything for us, including packing our boxes. Now our biggest hurdle is finding a place to live, and once that’s taken care of, we will hardly have a care in the world 🙂
So now it’s just a waiting game for the next three weeks — we are all so excited to meet this little man!
