39w0d - final belly pic & update

My mom got into town on Wednesday evening. We had a great time at the parade in town, about a mile from our house. Walking in the heat was not an option and parking is so nuts that if we drove down, we'd end up walking nearly as far so the only logical option was to ride our bikes. Hubby and NSWO have a sort of tandem set up with an extention bike for the little guy, and I have my beach cruiser (LOVE IT!!) so we rode down. I think I caused a bit of a stir - riding a bike with a belly as big as mine, but really it was easier and faster than walking at this point.

Yesterday was my last day at yoga for a while and I was fairly sad to know I won't be back for several weeks. I got a pic of me in headstand one last time to share and for me to remember.
Today, I have an OB appointment and we have to get bags finished packing, etc. I've also got to finish the blanket I'm knitting for the Bean. I figure if I knit all day long, I should be able to finish it in time.

Well, I thought I could, but apparently, this kid has a wicked sense of humor, already. Remember how this pregnancy started with a surprise BFP? (Odd to have a surprise when you've been trying for 2.5 yrs, but still.) Well, it looks like this kid might not care that I negotiated a SUPER COOL birth date for him because I woke up to bloody show this morning and we'll see if I'll be leaving the hospital after my OB appointment or not. Can you stand the irony if he decides to come out today and ruin all my plans for a cool birthday???? I guess he's already telling me I'm not as in charge as I think I am.

Anyway, here's the last belly pic, I'll update later today either way.

I was thinking of you on my drive to my doctors appt today...knowing that your scheduled C-section is for tomorrow... Looks like you might have an early arrival :-) I can't wait to hear an update on how you and the little bean are doing.

LOVE the handstand photo. That's one for the memory book, for sure! And I too can't wait to hear the update - since you haven't posted one yet, I'm thinking that today may be the day!

I just sent you an e-mail, then read your blog. I hope you still get the cool birthday, but it sounds like not! My babies didn't cooperate with me either - I wanted the 13th as Jon and I both have 13th birthdays and they came a day early! Silly babies!

I still can't believe you are doing those handstands! Looking forward to hearing about the baby's arrival!
