According to that ticker over there, we have 18 days to go.
Ever since I got pregnant, my mom has predicted the baby will come on April 1st. I told her I do not want an April Fool's baby, but I guess we will see.
Today she hits the final stage of watermelon. Woot! What we have been waiting for and watching for all along. We are in the home stretch here.
I found out at my last doctor's appt that I am one of the 25% of women with the Group B Strep. This means I will have antibiotics during labor and delivery. Leave it to my body to be in the minority.
My BFF at school, with the help of parents and students, threw me a surprise baby shower yesterday. The kids were so excited. We had decorations and games and snacks and prizes.
Tomorrow is my last day. I was hoping (for financial reasons) to come back the week after Spring Break, but I am guessing our little girl will be here by then. Even if she is not, I don't think I would be able to go back anyway. By the end of the day, I am wiped out. I am very grateful for Spring Break and then maternity leave!
Oh, and in non-baby news-I got my first ever traffic ticket the other day. (I turned left when the light was red and there was a no turn on red sign. In my defense, I had already entered the intersection and thought I was too far into it to retreat once the light turned red.) Anyway, the officer was a bit rude at first. After he ran my license and saw that I had a perfect record, he eased up. He became quite chatty and social and then asked about my husband. When I told him I had a partner, he said, "Oh, a girlfriend?" I answered yes and he proceeded to ask me how I got pregnant. I think he was genuinely curious, but so not professional. Very awkward.
