Here's me having an honest moment. This week was a bit of a test on the emotions. I fluctuate from being completely freaked out about delivering this kid (I use that term with total affection as she continues to kick me) and excitement of Googling every new feeling (is this it?!?!) -- to Googling "How to be a NICU mom" and remembering that getting her out is only our first challenge. This brochure (If Your Child has a Congenital Heart Defect) arrived in the mail from the American Heart Association that reminded me we have a very real and very emotional time in front of us. The good news is she continues to stay in the perfect position and is making progress... and I hurt... all over. :(
At 38 weeks she's size of... Swiss chard?! Or a leek... or even rhubarb. I can't even.
