Okay, so after years of people telling me that Gabe looks a lot like his dad, I finally have someone on MY side! (I was once told that I was just an incubator for the Little Phillip that I gave birth to almost 6 years ago). I know it's not much; I'll take the 4%....but ya'll, that cutie up there has SOME of my features. I can't wait to see who Sarah will look like.
I went to the doctor yesterday and I'm starting to swell. Doc says that the goal is to get me to 37 weeks, which will be on Feb. 2, without me getting worse and developing Pre-eclampsia. Keep in mind that I'm 3 inches below the 5 ft. mark (sounds so much better that 4'9", I think), and so things are getting pretty cramped inside. He wants me to stay off of my feet as much as possible (yeah, right!) and to keep drinking plenty of water. Oh, and I've gotten two good nights of sleep; I took some Sudafed and by some miracle, I can actually sleep horizontally now!!! So.....with the much-needed sleep, I can actually form a complete thought and I'm in a better mood....yipppeeeeeee!!!!! Oh, and the nurse that doesn't return phone calls gave me a wide berth until she realized that I wouldn't bite her head off. I had to chuckle to myself at that one. Am I really that bad when I'm in a bad mood? DON'T answer that.....
