Pop'in In

Just a quick pop in... I know I've been posting less and less. I think as the wait increases I just seem to want to discuss it less. I've been staying off of the Internet more and spending more time doing things around here. Geoff and I have begun to take the pups for walks after dinner. We need the exercise and so do they! In fact, we've had to ease them into it. We've been increasing the length each day in hopes of preventing Sable from having a heart attack on one of our walks.

On Friday, we are headed to Pawley's Island, SC with Carolyn and John for some R&R. Geoff and John are going to go golfing and Carolyn and I will enjoy the beach. And on Saturday, Chris and Sara will be joining us. This will be the first time, I've been on the beach where Sara's belly will be bigger than mine! LOL!!

This is also my last week with students. I have 5 more days of work and then I'm done until August. I've got lots of things planned for the summer to keep me busy.

Excitement is building!!

I went with Sara for another Dr. appointment yesterday. She was having an ultra sound to determine if she would have to have a c-section or not. She's had placenta previa since the beginning of her pregnancy. At one point (over Christmas) she was on bed rest for 2 weeks. Well, FINALLY her placenta has moved to where it should be for a natural birth. I was getting all excited for her because she wants to do like I did and have her baby with not drugs. Well, even though the placenta has moved, she still may have to have a c-section because Brennan appears as if he is going to be a big little boy! Right now, he is 4 pounds (about 1/2 a pound bigger than average). Sara's doctor says that if he goes over 8.5 lbs. he will not let her have it normally. So I guess we will just have to wait a bit longer to find out. I can't believe my little Sara may have a big baby. I was two weeks overdue and she weighed 7.6. We also learned that he has LOTS of hair. The nurse could actually see his hair. (She showed it to us, but I couldn't tell anything.) She said that normally, she can't find hair until it's closer to the due date. This gets more exciting every day!

After we left the Dr., we spent the rest of the day shopping. Sara is growing so much that she is outgrowing her XS and Small clothes so we went searching for some clothes to get her through these last 9 weeks. I really, really want the baby to come early.... I'm so selfish! I want the entire month of July to spoil my grandson!
